Forums - Nintendo Discussion - So I actually bought Hollow (for the Switch)

Hollow was a game that got me hyped when the trailer released. But once it got released it got so poor reviews I skipped it.

Now that I bought it and played it for a while I don’t understand why I read game reviews for.

 

Most of the things the reviewers disliked about the game (from a design point) i actually think fit the game and are fairly clever design choices. I’m only a couple hours in but so far I actually do enjoy the game.

The game is in no way perfect and has it’s flaws but to me it is enjoyable and has the right atmosphere for a survival horror game.

 

So bye bye retarded reviewers...



Around the Network

From watching gameplay in the past, it annoyed me how slow the game makes you walk. I forgot the other reasons I decided not to get this game.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

I dont remember reading negative reviews about this game.

Anyways, its a good game, especially for the rpice asked, so do enjoy it!



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Bad reviews ? Did they change the game or something since then cuz the game score on Metacritic is fairly high on Switch.

For me te slow movement adds to the game. This is not DOOM, also gives a sense of the protagonist wearing some gear/space suit witch does not allow for running.

The all ones i read have the game 3/10 and 4/10



I almost never read reviews anymore. I just buy whatever looks promising.

At most, I'll look at a score and maybe take it into consideration.

I use reviews like this (more or less:

Meta 90+ means I buy the game for sure if I was in the fence otherwise.  If the game wasn't on my radar, I make sure to check it out.  

Meta below 70 means I skip the game if I was otherwise on the fence.  

Metascores between 70 and 90, for games that i was considering anyway, help me decide whether I buy the game right now, or put it further down my list and pick it up after a price drop, borrow from a friend, or rent from Redbox.

In other words, I look to reviews for some guidance in my game purchase decisions.  But, in most cases, they only factor in to when I play (and how much I'll pay) , rather than if I'll play.



It's so cheap on Switch right now i've been wondering if i should buy it



Nothing to see here, move along
