Gamepro reviews The Conduit, 3.5/5 wich is 70%

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Gamepro reviews The Conduit, 3.5/5 wich is 70%

I don't see why anyone is surprised by this though. Gamepro is a pretty unprofessional gaming magazine regardless. I remember reading an issue a while back (several years back), and half of it was just an advertisement for the show Family Guy. They had a couple pages talking about the Family Guy game, and then dozens of other pages talking about why the show is great, along with quotes ripped from fan forums.

"There's some mumbo jumbo about some shadow organization that's plotting to take over the world using aliens or something; I don't know, it didn't make a lot of sense."

That sentence there made me want to read more of the review to see what foll this guy makes of himself.

He says the controls suck but then later praises the customization of the controls.

He thinks the story is messed up but he skipped the cutscenes.

And like many said...No Online Multiplayer talked about in review.

This is for sure a fake review and they will adjust the score to about a 9/10 when they add the multiplayer and have an actual professional review this game and not a fanboy.

Here's a great quote from the GameProAmatuer forum:

Lol look at the extraordinary difference in opinion here...

"features the tightest, most comfortable control scheme of any console-based first-person shooter to date and that's true because of an innovative, highly customizable configuration that's already changing the way developers approach FPSs on Wii." - ign

"after wrestling with the terrible controls for the five hours, thirteen minutes and eleven seconds it took me to beat the game...What I couldn't stand, however, was the use of motion controls...Terrible motion controls" - gamepro

something is clearly not right here. I don't think I've ever seen such drasticly different opinions on the same game. Strangely this is a rare phenomenon that only seems to be occuring for the Wii games for some reason. Games like Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit have recieved some of the most divided opinions and scores in the history of gaming, and it looks as though this odd trend is going to continue with the Conduit.



BAM! There it is!

The review was written by the GamePro Review Editor, the fanboy is the top of their review staff......

Such drama. But the score didn't justified the article. Should have been a 1/5.



wow this is rediculas its a review. Its one mans opinion. everyone needs to calm down
there are times that i completly disagree with IGNS reviews (prototype, AC) yet do i cry me a river...no.

I remember when alot of reviewers reviewed LO for example. Gave it low scores for loading times. Yet the final copies had less loading time because the final builds had some work done on them. Did most reviewers care? nope. They reviewed based on their copy.



Owner of all consoles cept DS.....Currently in love with prototype!

Jesus christ, by just looking at the GamePro forums itself, it's a trainwreck, especially when it comes to fanboys (from any sides).

I think I just lost a lot of braincells by reading the posts... Never again.

 

God, I am so glad how tame VGChartz is compared to most gaming sites.
