If you check the more from gamespot section, it says 5/10 in there.

I'm curious to see the actual review...

The bad:

Gorillas are sexist.

Too hard.

looks more like a 7/10 title you buy for $20 six months after the game been released

Tom McShea? Tom McShea.

@silversix_: It's a nintendo game. It'll still be $50 five years from now.

Would be hilarious, as the game likely deserves significantly higher (being Retro and everything)... but it would make for an entertaining time if true.

If that link is true, it's a pretty damn huge gap between it and the game informer review. I have a hard time seeing McShea give a platformer--especially one made by Retro Studios--that low of a score, but it wouldn't surprise me. McShea is a complete joke nowadays, with no consistency whatsoever. Kevin V's the only one worth listening to tbo.

Must be a Tom Mcshea review.

#7 Posted by SolidTy (43723 posts) -

This thread was McShea'd.

5/10, wow, even with the giant surprise Reggie told us about playing as Cranky Kong? Hmm, maybe Nintendo has spent too much time getting high off their own supply...

#9 Posted by Jankarcop (9618 posts) -

another quality console title

#10 Edited by timbers_WSU (5753 posts) -

There is no way. I can't see it getting a 5. So it is probably true.

#11 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (7321 posts) -

I hope it's true. It would be hilarious.

Cons: it's not metroid

So a game deserves a high score just because Retro made it? What kind of shitty reasoning is that?

Also Tropical Flop. Nintendo has no games(3rd party support) and most of the exclusives have been lower than normal quality.

I can't comment on what the game deserves, as I haven't played it, but if everyone else scores the game 8-9, I'm not going to be influenced in any way by a 5 on Gamestop.

Operative word you seem to have missed: likely

Neither of us have played it, so we cannot comment on it's quality. However, given Retro's track record, especially with the franchise this game is a part of, it's entirely possible that the game is as good or better than it's predecessor.

It must be time for a headline-grabbing GameSpot review. There's been a drought.

@StrongBlackVine: 3d world is lower than normal quality? By what messed up standard?

Edge gave it a 7.

I said MOST. Zombii U, Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, Nintendo Land. None of those was anything special just going by the scores and sales.

#20 Edited by Shinobishyguy (22488 posts) -

@StrongBlackVine: pikmin 3 got solid 8's and a few 9's across the board. Unless you're one of those idiots who thinks that anything lower than 9 is trash, its a good game

spot on

#22 Posted by k2theswiss (16599 posts) -

ok? when a game scores low why do people on her try pull sexist shit against the reviewer?

Either way, quite a few nintendo games = old shit with the same method

#23 Posted by farrell2k (6334 posts) -

If anyone expected this to be anything but garbage, they have a fundamental disconnect with reality.

You are right. I has much better reviews than I remembered.

It´s the way fanboys use to discredit a review these days.

If it´s McShea then it has been McShea´d,if it´s Carolyn then it´s something something transgender,if it´s Kevin it´s because he´s gay,if its McInnis,Watters or whatever it´s because they´re idiots,if it´s Danny must be because he´s british.

lol

@StrongBlackVine: well okay then. Nice to come to a conclusion quickly without a fight breaking out

#29 Posted by IMAHAPYHIPPO (2604 posts) -

@StrongBlackVine: Pikmin 3 is a treasure, and is the game I sunk the most hours into last year. Everything about Pikmin 3 was great.

All of those games are fantastic. If anything, that is a demonstration that Nintendo's exclusives are better than they've been in a long time.

All scored an 8,besides Zombie U.

I wouldn't be surprised if it got that

Pikmin sucks. Worst shit Nintendo has ever made not called Wii Music.

@timbers_WSU: I literally have no words for you, only sadness. You are now shunned. Commence shunning.

#43 Posted by superbuuman (2893 posts) -

Would be Ouch! if true.

#44 Edited by DJ-Lafleur (34156 posts) -

If the score was true, I wouldn't really concern myself over it unless most other websites also score the game lowly.

#45 Edited by tubbyc (3765 posts) -

Interesting, just found this Tom McShea article from last year:

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/wrestling-with-donkey-kong-country-tropical-freeze/1100-6416779/

After playing for an hour, he thought it was fun, but was down about it being "just fun" and nothing ground-breaking or really new.

After Bioshock Infinite, it wouldn't surprise me if the 5 turned out to be the score.

dkc tropical freeze looks like an amazing game.

#47 Posted by Sweenix (5399 posts) -

It cant be that bad. I mean, it outscored knack the GOAT

Damn it's easy to troll folks these days.

I'm calling BS on this. The first Retro developed Donkey Kong was near perfection and their track record is spotless.
