When the reviews start to pile in for this game and it gets the 7's, 8's and maybe a a few 9's sprinkled in all of thse people proclaiming alan wake to be the 360 savior will perish into obscurity.


The 360 doesnt need a savior. That would imply it needs saving. It has alot of great games. And while I agree that reviewers will be very hard on the gameplay. It will end up around the score of Heavy Rain. Of course I'm hoping for 90+ though.

I think it will have better reviews than HR since a lot of reviewers just did not like the gameplay, but Alan Wake should be more easy to like, and the 360 exclusives get better scores anyway.


Maybe thats because the reviewers feel they deserve better scores?

so we agree then.


Yeah it makes complete sense.  It makes it a no-win situation for 360 games.  If they get 90+ then obviously it can be argued that the game reviewers are in Microsoft's pocket to put doubt on how deserved the score is.  If the score is less than that then nobody will claim the reviewers are in Microsoft's pocket since it won't fit the score and we'll just cut to the people saying the game was overrated.  And it'll happen all over again with the next 360 exclusive.

Oh wow, really .. we're back to that again. I though Squalliam or whoeevr proved Sony has more shooters this gen ...

Killzone 2, Resistance 1, 2  what other FPS does Sony have?

I edited my post, I'll try and find the thread, it's to do with ratios or something

I agree with you somewhat, both MS and Sony havent made that many FPS, it's third party developers that have unloaded most of these shooters on us.

Alan wake is probably the only game that diverse itself from other games in a while

PS3 library has more variety

i guess your right. besides all the xbl games ( Indi, arcade games, and on demand that aren’t fps) and every single multiplate and exclusive games that doesn't have any shooting in it, but no the ps3 has way more verity………… hahaha

Around the Network

i cant wait for this game, its going to be my first day 1 buy in years.



End of 2012 prediction:

xbox 360 : 73-75 million  playstation 3 : 72-74 million  wii : 104-105 million 

Most hyped for :

Bioshock: infinte, The Last Of Us, Alan Wake's American Nightmare and Agent

I see an easy 90+ metacritic coming, probably even in the 93+ range



well judging from the gameplay i have to agree with him, its looking good indeed.



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...
