It would be funny to put Juliet through something like Super Smash Bros or anywhere else where you can create a character for the fun of it. I don't own Xbox360 or PS3. I own a Wii and No More Heroes 1 and 2 are my favourite highlights.
This game is definitely fun to play, I don't agree with such small score specially when you consider much worse games/xbox arcade games that have better evaluations. This game is great if you have a job and play games for fun and do not have time to spend grinding in other similar games that wantt you to believe you are actually accomplishing something when you beat them. You can increase the difficulty and the achievements and online leaderboards make up for the challenge if you will though.
It's kinda like all the sickening sweet Nintendo games mixed with the sickeningly gross third person blood fests that you wouldn't find on a Nintendo system anyway. I suppose there's an audience for this, but I'm not one of them. Good review. I like how you guys touch on the mechanics and quality of the over all gaming experience instead of trashing it completely because it's a sugar coated turd.
this game is awsome i like it because your not in first person in one little area just killing zombies. I love those games but it is always nice to have a different zombie game. sparkles don't hurt anyone especialy when they come out of zombies. $40 is a good price for it. the plat takes a lot of time to get but worth it. the lock on on the blaster can be taken off.
this game is awesome, repetitive but its something you just have to play. its funny and its achievement are very very creative, the song selections, the humour; i gotta say suda 51 still got it. the ending boss and the good ending will make you laugh. this game is an experience you got to have even though the gameplay simplicity holds it back. but screw it, i love it. it made my weekend. kudos grasshopper
Just want to say this is a really excellent review. The reasons given for the rating were specific, there were very few comparisons made to other games (i.e. the game is being judged on its own merits), and the positive aspects were appropriately emphasized.
I really really wish every review were as thoughtful as this one.
Abysmal is coming in all it's glory and horror. The moment I heard about the core of the title when it was announced, I was appalled by the idea. A cheerleader with almost "X-blades"/ "Blades of time" clothing cutting zombies? Abysmal....did I mentioned it is abysmal? No? I say it now- abysmal. 20 bucks? I am not giving even a cent. You don't pay with money, you pay with the time you spend to make money, and I won't spend my time on this, neither buying or playing it.
Its funny to see how some people in today's world can' t make they own inform decision on the game they want to buy . Instead they conform to the reviewers for help them make the decision for then. The thing with every reviewers review is that is based on their opinion which means that its biased to their personal preference and their not fact. E,g if the reviewer thinks this game is crap it doesn't mean its actual crap but to believe that and take advice is silly. That kind of stuff only occurs if you ar e12 year old teen lol. If you are not a teen , make your own grownup decision on which game to get . Theirs usually a demo to test out before you buy the game you know lol. As a result COD is the biggest gaming franchise and will never die because of it . *claps hands*
I watched some of the playthrough walk through on youtube. And at most I would pay $20 for this game. Very arcade like. Which is great in japan where arcades still exisit. But here in the U.S. you got to look really hard to find those anymore.
I had purchased it, and for the 60 bucks... but I found my ways of returning it sealed for full store credit. eff that, deff not worth it for tht $$! I'm a fan and I'll buy it again, when it slams that hawt @$$ on a 19.99 price tag! LOL
@10679 While I see your point in the masses of "sheep" being herded to buy games reviews are still needed. Now I would agree some games get the shaft by the reviews (such as Skyward Sword which got reviewed by a FPS player) but a good majority get "fair" reviews. And I would also agree w/ your CoD jab, IGN gives CoD great scores while Pokemon average scores just b/c its "recycled". To explain my point of "good" reviews I'll separate scores, games that get a 7 or higher by reviewing sites are worth $, 6 or lower probably aren't as good, falling short in many areas. The games that get at least the 7 have at least 3 of the following: great graphics, plot, gameplay, fun, innovation, and play-back value. I will close up my rebuttle by this quote "Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game"-Michael Jordan
@punisher1 What does it matter if arcades exist in the states, it's not like this game was released in the arcade in Japan...? All we have around me is one in a mall and a Dave & Busters. At home console gaming killed arcades in America because they were seen as a fad and not part of our culture, like in Japan. I still don't see why that makes this game less valuable, I guess it's up to the consumers individual preference. I have played through LC twice and think it's worth every penny!
