Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendolife scored Pokemon ultra Sun and Moon a 10/10!

Do you agree?

 

I am kind of surprised that they did this. The game is not that old. You would need to put a lot into a definitive version to make it a ten imo.

They also gave Pokemon Moon/Sun 10/10.
Why is this surprising?



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Not really surprising, but so far it seems that UltraSun/UltraMoon have started off with the same Metascore that Sun/Moon settled at, so initial reception seems to be that the games are definitely worthwhile entries in the series, rather than just copy/paste jobs.



I'm so surprised. I can barely contain myself.

I mean, they're based on top quality games that, while not a 10/10 in my book, are plenty good enough to earn the occasional 100%. This just adds a few features to it so... I mean if the guy thought it was already a 10/10, I imagine he'd still think as much now.

It reminds me of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, except that there appears to be less improvements in this instance. A game is rarely going to score lower unless it's a completely botched remaster or something.



How many games have they given 10/10 this year?



Wait...the metascore is 88 with 16 reviews (so far) :O

I thought it was going to do like 77 or something like that lol.

I don't think it should be compared based on the previous iteration though, it should be compared based on the other games that are released around the same time. For example, Final Fantasy X obviously had to be compared to different games when it was released in the remastered form. Giving it a minimum of the same score as the original would make much less sense.



Well, for some people (like me) if the definitive version is better than the original, it should be scored higher. For example, Skyrim Special Edition was better than the original game for me because of significant improvements to graphics, loading times that are no longer unbearably long, and the addition of mods is awesome.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
