Why is it being reviewed by a 14 year old boy?


Anyways, eurogamer (a credible review site) gave it a 7, so yes, it's a flop.

#3 Posted by juarbles (801 posts) -

Lol even the OP can't tell the difference between Flopza 4 and 5. That's what happens when a company mostly copies the source code and sells it as a new game to naive xboners. TLHBO.

Funny how the "credible review sites" seem to change to suit peoples agendas isn't it. What happens when Eurogamer give a game you're interested in a 5? Do they suddenly stop being credible.

Theyre all opinions. fact. go to the eurogamer system wars if you want to play "YOUR" childrens games.

oh wow, Forza is always a top quality game, super polished. i am surprised a first outing on a new console earns a 9. guess its an excellent game.

#12 Posted by Evo_nine (1734 posts) -

In what universe is a 9 considered a flop?

Anyways, xbox domination continues. Goodluck next gen cows.

#13 Posted by Heil68 (44658 posts) -

Great score, I was expecting an 8.

#14 Posted by Rage010101 (5470 posts) -

Obviously not a flop, but cows everywhere just got owned HARD! X1 launch wins over PS4 trash of a launch!

TCHBO!

Eurogamer is widely considered the best review stie. Sounds like you are making excuses. Pretty sad really.

#16 Posted by freedomfreak (40640 posts) -

WiiU and Xbox One have got their first AAAE.

Where you at, Ps4?

#17 Edited by timbers_WSU (5753 posts) -

We all knew it was coming. Its the best racing game on the market after all.

cherry picking reviews because is not your liking ? Anyway it got 8,8 on IGN and 8 on joystic and gamesradar. Still much better than KZ

Face it cows neither console has particularly good launch line up but X1 is 1 step above on that

#25 Posted by XBOunity (2981 posts) -

Ass kicked lol cows be hurting

#26 Posted by whatsazerg (211 posts) -

Congrats XBOTS.... Borza is the console racing sim to beat. It certainly matters in the grand scheme... but to me, it doesn't... haven't enjoyed racing sims since GT3. I've played Forza 2 & 3 (I own them actually) but get no joy from them.

#27 Posted by BruceBenzing (343 posts) -

Time to get the umbrella out and start wading through the Cow tears....I hyped it AAAE and it met hype.

#28 Posted by MonsieurX (30277 posts) -

Cows meltdown incomming

#29 Posted by 2scoopsofempty (923 posts) -

that's it... getting a XB1. mad i didn't preorder, but the launch is looking very promising so far.

Why don't you fuck off over to Eurogamer then if you like it so much. These are the GAMESPOT forums and thus GAMESPOT'S score is the one that matters, that's how it always has and always will work.

Oh shit game over cows, hurry hide.

although shaun tends to overrate games and easily hands out 8's and 9's, get me someone like Kevin V or Justin and see how harsh they are, which i prefer.

#35 Edited by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

lol at GS giving that jagfest a 9. And people wonder why I don't bother with GS reviews.

#36 Posted by lundy86_4 (43438 posts) -

That's a fast AAAE. Excellent.

Looks like Forza is always a safe bet. MS needed these guys considering GT would never go over at xbox.

Cows jelly.

We got a RETAIL AAAE. Cows got an arcade AAE.

Lemmings win, cows lose.

Deal with it.

bu bu but 90+ series on MC....

#45 Edited by BruceBenzing (343 posts) -

INB4 fans of the Bumper Car Sim start trying to convince people the other racing game is better because it sells more,,,,

#46 Edited by withe1982 (450 posts) -

Not a massive surprise from Shaun TBH you could see that coming before reading the review. I was expecting an 8 but a 9 seems rather generous given the limited differences between 4 and 5 plus the pre baked buildings, lack of night racing, limited cars and lack of dynamic weather. Not 100% convinced it's really next gen but to get 1080p and 60fps is impressive none the less.

No doubt Forza is a tremendous arcade racing title though. Making me itch to play Drive Club now.
