@awheaten Gamespot is not the only one giving this game a +9 score; gametrailers, edge magazine, IGN, Giantbomb, they all gave the game over 9.0 The game happens to be good, deal with it, that fact is not going to change no matter how many excuses and accusations of Gamespot being biased you people throw to the air... It's the tiresome cheap resource you always use. where were you when Infamous (although really good game), loaded with animation and collision issues got a 9.0? Didn't saw complains there. honestly...
The game has improved in most areas from its earlier releases; game mechanics, graphics, storyline (so they say), construction in Horde mode, 4play co-op, and Beast mode. That's no small feat. If the game scores well above average in all those areas it's no surprise it rates that well. Perhaps you're after something more 'real time', and if so take a look at BF3 - it won't disappoint. pz
I think credit is given where due, and perhaps it is convenient that it got a 9.5 before release, but it is after all subjective. If you don't like the way gamespot rates, then go find another that agrees with your sentiments. I think the only way we will improve gaming for everyone is to have open debate about content and not just abusive fodder which does no one any good, except make those who dish it out feel self righteous (while everyone else thinks your opinion is uneducated). pz
2012 is going to be my year!! Seriously though they better put Hwang in there or at least stop making Yun-Seong a joke character.
9.5 ahhh what can I say... well at least they've slowed down on the derogatory news post they've been pumping out all year. I won't be playing this game this year. Too many PS3 games out there. But, I must say that it doesn't come to much suprise that this game scored so high, while other games out there are at least look better than this game. But, hey I guess you have to give the best scores to the highest bidder. I know the ads will run for months on this site. And I gave up along time ago on gamexboxspot being objective. But, congrads to all the wii60 fanboys out there, you got your game of the year. Just know that its just one game of many Sony games that met/surpass this thing. Have fun.
