Forums - Sony Discussion - The Last of Us Part II - Review Thread (MC: 94 / OC: 94)

Tagged games:

I haven't read the spoilers, but it didn't seem like people were too impressed with them. I think the average reviews will be around 88, but I'm guessing for me personally it will be a 10 and in my top 3 games for the PS4.

Updated the OP with the predictions so far.



I'm not sure about this one. From a gameplay perspective it looks really good. But i'm worried about the story. I'll go with 93.



Remember that is a Sony game, so they will be criticised for the minimum reason.

In other platform I’m pretty confident it would do around 97-98 but since it’s on PS4 I expect between 88-94.

I’ll go with 92 but I hope I’m wrong and the game scores higher.

That’s a odd perspective. From mine it’ll be praised extra just because is a Sony game. Hence my 94 prediction 



 

 

I would say 94.. even though the sequel might turn out be a superior game.

80

I expect TLOU2 will be called "divisive" by most professional reviewers and 80 to 85% seems like almost like it's the official "this game is divisive" aggregate score for a first-party AAA release. I especially believe that will be the case given how early the embargo on reviews is being lifted. I mean it reminds me of how Death Stranding was handled.

I also expect VG Chartz to score it like a 2 and vote it maybe the Biggest Disappointment of 2020.

I also also expect to quite possibly disagree with what the consensus opinion winds up being.

I've seem two previews so far, one didn't say anything other than technical achievements because of the embargo, another said it's a masterpiece even with his huge expectations based on the original.

I'm fully expecting some backslash because ND wants to push representation on the game but that seems like it'll have a hard time weighting down how good the game is.

As I said long ago, I doubt any Sony game will score 95 or above regardless of how good it is this gen, so a 93 like Uncharted 4 seems within reason for me.

If the game is as good as I heard it was, a 80 would be quite sad to see, but I don't doubt it either.

I don't think most people have problems with a diverse cast. It dosen't matter to most if those carachters are gay, lesbians, black, green, blue or aliens, as long as they are well written and are not there merely because the devs wanted to push an agenda.

I feel that a good example of what not to do in this case is TimeSpinner. God, that game soured me. Not only was the story weak, but they kept throwing on your face how magnificent the carachters were because they were gays or bisexuals or whatnot, and not because of their personal story. They kept throwing that on your face as if they were trying to convince you of that dogma of their instead of just telling a good story.

That's when people will have problems with a game. If Last of Us 2 dosen't do that, they will be fine, as long as there are no other problems.



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

If it's two years ago I'll agree with you, but seeing what the review was going on to SONY games these 2 years, it's not odd to say there's gonna be certain point off in the first place because it's a SONY game if it is not PERFECT.



my gut feel 96 dropping down to 94, but  fuck my gut what's it done for me besides bellyaching all the time. 95 it is
