Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo 2023 OpenCritic Prediction League

Well, things are getting started for real now with this year's first score.
FE Engage reviews have started coming in, meaning of course that predictions on it will have to close. So far it's sitting at a score of 82 (mZuzek has the closest prediction at 81) and I've written it in the OP to signal that reviews are out, but I'll give it a week or two before writing up any points as it's sure to fluctuate early on.

Kirby Return to Dream Land Deluxe - 78 (good game and with new stuff but like... not a necessary port)

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon - 82 - Feels like it will be a cheaper kind of game. Looks like they invested a lot in the artistic direction so i have faith the result will be somewhat polished

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom - 96 - It will suffer from being the sequel to one of the best game of all time. It has huge expectations and i know they will exceed a lot of them, but some people might not like how it will not be botw 2.0.

Pikmin 4 - 87 - I feel like this one will have gotten more care and innovative ideas. It will be a polished product i can feel it.

Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp - 78 - i feel like it will be good but that's it.
