Post all your MPH things here!

From Yagami-lori:

Mistakes in the review by Bob Colayco leading to a retraction:

-Said there were only 15 maps available, when there is really 26
-Said that only Battle is available online, when through freinds code, all modes are available online
-Said there was a character graphical glitch, which is really Trace's stealth ability*

Information on the debate about the graphical score...

http://www.gamespot.com/pages/forums/show_msgs.php?topic_id=24461018

* Bob C's response:
"I never said anything about this. The line which may have caused this confusion was unaltered from the original and is still in the review: "Our only major gripe with the graphics is that they can look grainy at times, particularly when you're engaging in a long-range shooting battle with...something that you can't quite make out. "

I think it's pretty clear I mean that the graphics are too grainy and low res to see much of anything when you're in a long range shooting battle. I didn't mean anything about Trace's stealth ability."

I don't see the score anymore, but i do see dozens of threads!
KittyKat

I think they are re-reveiwing it, anyone else know if this is true?

Apparently the online part is false (The real online is much bulkier than what they said) so they will be playing it more and change the score.

I would assume they're re-reviewing it. It should get a 9.0 atleast! Even if it's just to shut the cows up

Why did they give it a 8.7(or something along those lines)?! I mean, was it the map mistake that made them assume it wasn't 9.0 deserving. If so, they may change the score. Otherwise, GS has become biased and really, they're giving AA's at least for every new PSP game...

Maybe because, oh, I don't know ..

They deserve it? Just because some games are getting bad scores, you say GameSpot is getting biased. Why? Because you're trying to make it sound like it's GameSpot's fault and not the game (not targeted towards you, really, just saying it as an overall statement.) Some people are trying to come up with a reason as to why it's happening, instead of just accepting that some games might just not get a Perfect review, but rather a "Good" one. When the MP:H review came out, people immediately jumped towards it as a way to say "HAHAHA!! I'm right, GameSpot is biased! Long live IGN!!"

It's asinine. It was one mistake, and that's all that happened. If they're fixing it, I'm pretty sure saying "gamespot biased becuz of mph review" loses it's value.

I think this is all really bogus. And agh, the whole friend code thing is more complicated then it should be. They should make it server based like everything else. But, that isn't happening, but I don't want to add people to my friend list just to set decent rules...ugh, what to do...ideas? I think I'll just get unlazy and add some people...maybe...

If you set up a game with friends you can voice/text chat and pick several game modes other than battle. Its waaaaaaaay better with friends.

Probably just an error upload, I think the guys and girls will fix the review decently, not like this.

Isn't the show OnThesSpot in 15 minutes, maybe we can get a question about MPH review through.

And now I have completely lost any respect I had for Gamespot. The issues that were previously cited as downsides to the game (lack of maps, lack of extra modes) is quickly made negative by the "lengthy" freinds code. They did exactly as I thought they would... nit-pick to keep from actually changing the score. And not only that, but the apology is made in a smaller font at the end of the review like they are trying to hide the mistake from an obviously inept review. Shame on you, Gamespot. Instead of trying to fix mistakes allowed through, you just put a new coat of paint on them to pretend it never happened.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to get passed the boss in (2nd level, 1st time there). I'm not a very good gamer and this guy is really giving me a hard time. I can shoot his tentacles and get him floating around so I can shoot his eye, but I get beat up pretty quickly. The answer might simply be that I need to dodge more and generally suck less, but it is hard! Thanks for your help!

Try destroying tentacles with missles and using power bean on orb, that worked best for me. And as for you^ Im as mellow as the next guy but even I was shocked at how poorly reviewed this game was, even on his second attempt he still wasn't all that accurate.

Since it says "questions" I'll ask a question. A few months ago it was announced that you could send voice clips over to other players in the "lobby". Well, as far as I can see, there is no option for sending voice clips, or a lobby for that matter, can anyone clear this up for me?

I'll agree on the graphics being judged too low, but on nothing affecting the gameplay? Let's see... BobC said...

Only 15 maps- There are 26
Only one mode online- All SEVEN are online w/ friends
Glitches with characters disappearing

All three of those reasonably affect the gamplay score & realistically the value score, because with what he originally said means less game to be played. This should have been addressed, but instead, they found little things to try & validate not chaning the review. It's insulting to the people that put in so much time making the game.
