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

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.

I would I argue that Ultra Sun/Moon have more improvements from Sun/Moon than MK8D had from MK8 (MK8-D is still the best in the series for me tho)



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.

Deserved score, tbh.



Ew.



Unbiased review outlet.

Whilst I have not read the review, and I have yet to play the game...
Have higher standards.

I'm pretty sure Alex from Nintendo Life scoffed at someone for saying SMO is overrated. I would not take their opinions seriously.



Too worthless to live, too scared to die.

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.

Yeah, I was speaking about more immediate remasters and such, akin to PS3 to PS4 Last of Us or last gen to current gen GTA V. Obviously when enough time has passed re-releases or remasters may not score as well... an example that occurs to me is when the Legend of Zelda (original) was first brought to the Virtual Console and many gave it a ~7/10. In its time it was a clear 10/10, but it shows its age more now and doesn't really stand out like it once did.

Well that's probably fair from one point of view, I was just thinking of all the extra maps included from former DLC. Otherwise, the vastly improved battle system fixed the only serious flaw the game had.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe:
Looks better (1080p vs 720p)
Runs better (60FPS vs 59FPS)
Has almost twice the tracks (as it packs in the DLC)
Has more racers (even beyond DLC)
Improves the racing systems (Two items at a time, ultra mini turbo)
Adds a proper battle mode.
Adds portability.

I think Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a substantial upgrade, despite it leaving most of the core racing mechanics mostly unchanged.
That is only if we include the merging of the DLC from Mario Kart 8 into the base game with Deluxe.

True true. I totally forgot about the dlc, so including that in makes the case better for 8-deluxe. However, new tracks and characters can be bought as dlc for the original game, while that not the case for Sun/moon, and ultra sun/moon. I could totally see you point of view on this.
