About 3-4 days to go for the BIG Review Bombing of this game.



Around the Network

Everyone's talking about Spider-Man 2, Zelda, and Starfield, forgetting TLoU Factions 2 which is possibly going to be as big if not bigger than Destiny. Yes, my expectations are high. It's Naughty Dog's most ambitious game to date and is likely releasing on PS5/PC simultaneously amidst HBO series hype. Huge potential here.



All this pre talk for Forspoken is exhausting.

The demo is just that: a demo of a product that hasn't finished production. There's already been enough chatter about the demo's main issue being the absence of mechanic explanation.

I'm sure the final game will be better than the demo experience.

I do know that I have positive expectations for it, but likely won't buy until a few months time since I haven't seem any pre-order major discount so will go for second hand copy similar to Hogwarts.

Well i knew i was right not to hold out much hope. Even if i did want to see how good Direct Storage would be on Windows 11 and this is the first game using it i guess ill pass until its about €15-20.
https://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-5/forspoken Currently the score is at 68. I guess the people who played the demo on PS5 and said it was blend and annoying where right.

Wow PS5's first 720P game??. How is this even possible?. talk about a bad port all around.

But weren't you saying Sony selecting limited outlets to send codes would inflate the score? And isn't 720p for PC?

Sony didnt select anyone it was SE. And well you can see the first two reviews from who they selected . But i guess SE's idea of limiting who could review the game didnt pay off as they hoped or the ones giving it them scores got the game early other ways. Also Pc can play in any res so no it isnt exclusively 720P on PC unless you playing on really outdated hardware. And even then you could still play at 1080P but who knows what the frame rate would be like. But this is a shitty port overall. No game on PS5 should go this low its clearly not the hardware as the is much better looking games. This is an unoptimized POS



While just shy of 70 is not exactly a fantastic score, seems the biggest complaints from the demo of combat aren't really an issue in the final game. So yeah, better.

Really seems like the biggest issue is technical, which is a shame. But, it's also something that can be worked on through patches (if the game gets any).

Well thats one way to put it if you ignore everything else the reviews are saying. Since im pretty sure none of them other than DF talked about the tech issues.
