Looking good so far. I’m not sure what Famitsu’s history is with reviewing 2D Metroid games, but I know that in general the Japanese audience has never embraced the titles, so without reading their review I’m going to make a bit of deduction that that might have something to do with it.

I can’t wait to see all of our reviews after we have played the game. Here’s to a better post-launch legacy than Other:M.



88 on OpenCritic too



SW-3707-5131-3911

My prediction abilities have improved, I posted 88 for Metroid Dread in the Prediction League thread. Very happy with how this game is turning out so far. Can't wait to play it myself!



Signature goes here!

GOTY is going to be close as f*ck this year. So far we have no games with a runaway high meta score. We have 10 games with either an 88 or an 89 on Open Critic:

Bustafellows- 89
Psychonauts 2- 89
It Takes Two- 89
Ratchet & Clank- 88
Monster Hunter Rise- 88
Metroid Dread- 88
Overboard!- 88
Death's Door- 88
Tales of Arise- 88
Deathloop- 88

We only have 1 game left this year that could potentially pull ahead of the rest of the pack in meta/open score imo, and that is Forza Horizon 5. Horizon 3 got a 91 meta while Horizon 4 got a 92 meta, if Horizon 5 can match or exceed Horizon 4 it will be the highest rated game this year.

I will play the game, but we know this game gets extra points because it is a Nintendo game, it is probably a 82-83 game if the reviewers were honest which is still a solid score.

Famitsu 34/40 being honest at least.



Wikipedia links instead of links to the actual reviews?!

Why?

I told you, technical problems on my end. My enter key isn't working right.

All game reviews are based on the individual reviews opinion.  Nintendo games get ranked higher because they are just more fun to play than most games.  I've played games that got perfect 10's that I didn't enjoy like Metal Gear Solid 5 and I don't think the game was overrated and just because I didn't enjoy it doesn't mean it isn't fantastic game to someone else.

Very true. I never liked the God of War games because the characters had the tendency to be so unlikable and/or put through so much bullshit that it was too much of a chore to care about anyone there.
