the players view is more accurate than the gamespot view, i would also rate it around 8/10, basically this has been unfairly underated by gamespot.

Haven't we learned already this gen that we should never trust JRPG reviews?

 



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials

That's an even lower score than The Last Remnant got. Level-5 has really dropped the ball on this one.

Well after 4 reviews the game has a 69 average on Metacritic.

Doesn't sound too promising...

Ouch.. 6? The previews looks so good. Surprising.

Surprising?
Don't you guys remember the Famitsu score from 2008?

White Knight Chronicles: 7/7/8/7
29/40


We knew since 2008 that WKC was an average JRPG.





Demon's Souls also received a 29/40 from Famitsu

care to give your theory another go?

 

 



6 on a scale of 10 is average, not bad.

In my opinion to many games are getting to high of scores to frequently. There's nothing really special about getting 9's or 10's anymore because so many reviewers just had those out.

It's like Kira and Randy from American Idol. They are way to nice, way to often and they vote yes to tons of crap. Where as Simon is the opposite. If he likes you then you know you've got something special.

Edge review will be 8.5/10. Just to screw with people's heads.

Non-FF JRPGs have a hard enough time getting traction in the West, if this ends up at a B level review average it's gonna make it doubly hard.

I've always thought Gamespot reviewed games reasonably well. Mostly their review scores correlate with my opinion of games I've played. Or at least they aren't wildly off the mark.

Interesting the Gamespot users are giving it 9.0, and their collected critic average is 7.5. Are Gamesport often outliers among reviewers?

Depends on the game.  Usually they're pretty average, but their 7.5 for R&C: Tools of Destruction and 8.8 for Twilight Princess were some of the lowest scores the two recieved.

Oh! I'd definitely take issue with their R&C score. Not quite sure how an 8.8 could be an outlier for any high quality game, even one that averages 9.6, it's still in the right range.

I suppose it really isn't, but I was one of the Zelda fanboys that flipped the shit at a major site giving the game below a 9 at the time.
