Forums - Gaming Discussion - We Happy Few reviews rolling in

I forgot until now this game was releasing tomorrow. I was always cautiously optimistic about We Happy Few. Always intrigued, but never quite convinced. Unfortunately, initial reviews are not great. It currently sits at a 67 on metacritic after 16 reviews. 

MS just bought Compulsion Games and will likely be adding talent and doing some firing, so maybe Compulsion Games’ next game will be better.

Sony discussion?



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.

I'm sure the game isn't bad, i just love the atmosphere so i will try it anyway.



This seems like a game where I'll watch the cutscenes on Youtube and skip the gameplay.

Out of all the studios that MS announced they had acquired at E3 I found Compulsion to be the strangest choice. Fact is their first game, Contrast, only got a 62 meta, and now we have We Happy Few sitting at a 66 meta. That is not a very good track record. I feel like MS is going to need to layoff some people and then make some smart hiring choices if they want to remold them into a good 1st party studio that can at least hit 80+ on meta.



66 meta.....

What the heck is wrong with MS studios?

Ryse = 60
Recore = 63
Super Lucy Tale = 64
Sea of Theives = 69
State of decay = 67

Now "we happy few" gets a 66? jebus.

And "sea of theives" got a free pass or something, its rated higher than it should be.

Crytek, Armature, and Playful aren't MS Studios.
