Only at 17 reviews so far though right? Score could go either way.

My issue is the content of reviews. Docking points for not having odst and reach, for being tired of shooters, and for being a time sink are stupid reasons to deduct points for

Wait.. Did reviewers really dock points because MCC doesn't have Reach and ODST? -__-

I know, I was looking at the Vita port debacle.

But that getting 91 is even more reason why this is harsh imo... as illustrated by someone else earlier.

The Vita version received a 73, deservedly so with all the framerate issues.  The PS3 version received a 91.

I know... I quoted it by mistake.  I didnt intend to use it as evidence.

But as I said, the 91 for the ps3 version strehgthens many peoples arguments here.



I'm not really here!

Yup

Seriously!? For not getting SIX full games for $60?  I don't know what to say.

Not quite, since most of the Halo games are much older than GoW was back then. 

I mean GoW I and II reviewed in the 93-94 range but the collection got a meta that was lower than the "sum of its parts" by 2-3 points.  The games were quite recent at the time.

Eh, you really think it can possibly review in the 90+ range? Given Insomniac's track record I'd be more worried that it reviews way below what it should get.

What the hell did you expect when you are playing a remaster of a decade old franchise?

does it matter.... I pre-order this game at the Canadian inflated price $69.99 three week ago.

I broke my scaphoid playing hockey and I had to get a cast for 8-12 week this was early October. I went in for a check up and doctor gave me the option of surgery, he said often time scaphoid doesn't heal well and part of the benefit it's out of the cast sooner. I ask him when would the cast come off with Surgery...... he told me November 11 :) Surgery it is :)

Only 4 more days to go till I get this partial splint off and can play some HALO.

90+ metacritic is my prediction

dated gameplay could be a good reason no?

yeah most of the these reviewers are tired of FPS.
