Why is this game out on the 14th if the reviews are all already in?

Because they have confidence in the game and are allowing people to review it a week or more ahead. If you have review embargos lifted well before the game is out, you have that much faith in your game. Usually games that won't allow reviews till the game is released are ****** games, or in general not very good.

Wow, almost perfect scores across the board. I don't think I've ever seen this. I'm probably going to have to buy it now.

One thing that is strange about the reviews is they're all commenting on the amazing multiplayer, especially IGN. That's very peculiar to me, considering multiplayer servers don't go up till launch day. You usually can't base your opinion of multiplayer until release. Imagine if they reviewed SOCOM before release, they might have given it a respectable score.

He's kind of right. The first two games had amazing story telling then the third guy it's just, OK. I only bought UC3 a little while ago and I can barely remember the story, while I can remember UC1 and UC2 pretty clearly. It didn't deserve to be called the best game in the series. Also don't see how the gameplay and graphics was much better than UC2, seemed pretty similar to me.

I was gonna buy it, but I was going to wait for a price drop. Money is tight and all. Seeing how good this game actually is I don't think I can wait that long.

A 10/10 means that the game is perfect, as in it cannot be any better than it is. I seriously belive that The Last of Us is perfect. The 10/10s are probobly more of than the 8/10 by Gamespot.

I saw Gamespots review and it was just plain awful tho. Worst review i have ever seen. A 3.5 minute long review with a guy telling us that the game is fun and good, but it has easy puzzles... and then he just gives it an 8. It was uninspiring and boring. No analysis, no explanation or anything constructive. It was like an amatuer did it.

I've seen them give games like an 8.5 or something like that with ZERO CONS listed. I've seen a CNET review of an MP3 player (or headphones, can't remember which) that was a 4.5/5 with no cons... how does that work?

It depends on the site, but a 10 doesn't usually mean the game is perfect. Usually it means the game is that much better then anything else on the market right now.

Hmm not seeing any mention of the framerate issues, maybe people are ignoring it or reviewers are blind and polygon has more integrity than most of the websites that gave it a 10.

Well it won't beat GTA IV. Once all the mainstream critics send in their reviews the less mainstream ones will trickle in and you'll get some more negatives ones.

How so? What makes less mainstream reviewers possibly more negative?

Do you have the game already or something? How do you know it has "horrible fps and texture quality"?

edit: Just saw some of your posts in the Xbox One vs PS4 thread... Your "criticisms" make sense now.

Yeah, seen the same things myself many times. People in general does not seem to understand what the 0 - 10 sacale is.

It ALWAYS means that it's perfect. The fact that some sites cannot use the scale properly does not change that. There is no 11/10. 10 / 10 is as good as it gets.

Why do you point out him as bias and not certain other posters who have bias, except in a different direction.

Non-mainstream reviewers tend to pick out stupid things to drop a score on something. They tend to be more critical and they're not popular enough websites to have any bias.

Because in the Demo they released during most combat sequences the FPS would dip down to around 25fps.

Also most screens that are being shown off don't look great at all tons of jagged edges and muddy textures.

So you're judging the game based off a demo and screenshots? That's kinda ridiculous, no?

So do you want better graphics quality or higher FPS? Because on a 7 year old system you're not going to get both.

If FPS is inconsistent it's absolutely a bigger problem.

If I have any it's toward PC and neither consoles. Even though I've heralded many PS3 games.

I'm not judging anything it's why I was looking for a review that commented on it being fixed or at least improved upon. Sorry that blur effects get old after awhile.

Agreed, I just thought it was odd that he mentioned both as if they could both get better.
