[QUOTE="ispeakfactOwns"] Don't hand the game off to the plenty of Xboty hacks on this site. Before this year began I predicted the reviewers would be lowballing PS3 E's to try and "balance" the lack of 360 titles but Kevin is the beacon of light to give these games the score they deserve. StrongDeadlift

Or, you know....the games werent that good? :? He's had some wildcards (Infamous 2, Skyward Sword), but really? An Xbox conspiracy? Why are cows always fighting against these nonexistant adversaries to the PS3, who they try to turn everybody into ? :?

Yea these games all sucked and Halo ODST was the pinnacle of gaming scoring a 9.0/10 by Mcshea himself. Yea, Right.

Its not about being a cow or a sheep.. most people are annoyed by the reviewer due to how stupid his reviews are, he always complains of how some games ae too hard for him even though they arent like ( infamous 2 and skyward sword, he didnt even use the controller correctly ) and he always complains about how some games are too easy like Sly.. what does he want exactly? not to mention he didnt even count it as a $40 game but as a $60 game as someone else mentioned.

i think thats why most people argue when Tom is the reviewer

Yea, I wont deny hes committed some f*ckery, (that was criminal what he did to Infamous 2), but my post was aimed at Ispeak, and his angle of Tom Mcshea being an Xbox fanboy, and needing to "balance out" the exclusives as an excuse for why PS3 has so many flops.

Mcsh8.5 has sh*t on everybody before.  Not just Cows.  That was my point mentioning Zelda.

The new Sly is awesome. Don't dog it. SanZaru did a good job. They kept it the same with graphical improvements and made it fun. Sure it wont be the biggest seller. This is a gift for long time fans though, and for anyone who loves platformers.

Desmonic
A gift to long time fans? Screwing the plot and ending of the last game. Using a slower and clunkier engine, with less variety, and a more linear adventure of the last 2? No advertising what so ever? Rumored DLC, which removes content already from the lack of content in this game, which each sly is known for. Limited moves. and much more. It is a disgrace to Sly copper fans other then finally getting another game. But more like what Duke Nukem fans got or GT5 fans got lol.

Wut?... Care to prove any of that oh marvelous alt?

How am I an alt? Also why don;t you actually look at the game like I did lol. Trying to defend the game you don't even have. I actually play the games I hate on thanks.

Adam Sessler gives the game a 2/5.  Damn.  

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IXp8TBrf38

I actually enjoyed the  demo (Though I do thin the platforming was alittle clumsy and could have been tighter).  I didnt expect Sessler to give this game such a low score.  He seems like this is the kind of game he would like.

7.5 is as low most people will go in the industry now so that score imo is too high. We need to establish that 5's and 6's can be good games again. Hasn't been that way since 5th gen.

No, same posts says you looked at it and only then that you beat it (even though it came out today). So yeah... :lol: Not to mention that you only said crap in your first post, but still :lol:

The same posts clearly says I played it, learn to read. I was telling also you to look at it as well obviously since that alone will prove some of my points valid. Also uh, yes I beat it..... Also how dare I am able to play the game before ONE DAY like thousands of others (legally) OH NOEZ. Again, just trying to get me a violation. You can trick me into pretending you can't read.

McShea scored the game 7.5 when the MC score is 77 he is just so mean.

Seriously cows are such dramaqueens. Face the facts the opinion from critics is the game is just a A game.

Platformers these days also (generally) aren't very good unless they're Mario. True story. Though watching Nintendo continually clown the rest of the industry is kinda funny.

Slashkice

Looking at the other reviews, seems they're split in the same manner. One half is going "Yay, more Sly~!" while the other half is just "oh, more Sly".

In a way, both sides are right.

sure seems this way. I would of been fine with ether direction. I love all the sly games and dont mind more with new locations and story and powers.

Rayman Legends looks very good. Trine 2 and New Super Mario Bros U were also great.

Which is funny since i personally found galaxy a Giant sleeping pill. Im having a good time with rayman and about to plat it and just found the game much more enjoyable then a mario game. Same goes for genirations.

Yeah "oh more linear game" when every game preview and even this review said the worlds are bigger and there is a HUGE emphasis in free world exploration :lol:

 

"Oh Rumored DLC, which removes content already from the lack of content in this game, which each sly is known for" <-- This doesn't even make sense as a phrase. 


"Oh look at it like I did but I beat it too!"  Yeah right :lol: 


Proof or it didn't happen brah. Go play with your "dual gpu" WiiU! :lol:

 

Also:


[spoiler] These exist for a reason idiot.  Just do this [spoiler*]..text..[/spoiler*] without both *'s ... [/spoiler]

How does one prove that they beat the game? Exactly. Not only that, you never did look at any footage until now huh? Also, the game is much more linear, if you can't get to much of what you see on screen that you SHOULD, it does not somehow mean that the worlds are bigger should be taken seriously. But maybe you should look or rent the game and find out yourself. Also dual gpu was debunked yesterday and nintendo lied about the gamepad holding data. You are slow and on a roll of being stupid today!!!

I hear Rayman is pretty great... haven't played it soo.. Generations was also pretty cool. Hmmm.. but yeah, besides Mario there are few big, known platformers and even less that are good/great. Won't really talk about this one since I haven't played it yet (and also I would enjoy it even if it was horrible :P Downside of being a big fan of any series hehe)..

Generations was legit and Rayman is apparently very good. Beyond that, I dunno.

would be fact if all scores scored sevens but this aint the case here. Also people really need to stop using meticritc. I truly hate how that place works. Averging scores is just retarted and teh site should just be used as a place to round up reviews. Hell joystiq does a better job then meticritc.

Generations was legit and Rayman is apparently very good. Beyond that, I dunno.

Last gen was the last great gen of the platformers I'd say.. not in terms of quality ones (there's always Mario and a couple more per gen) but in terms of quantity and notoriety.

Maybe on the mainstream side, but the indie platformers are carrying a lot of the weight.

Super Meat Boy is superb, VVVVV is pretty good, Limbo was solid, Trine 2 isn't too shabby, Trials Evolution(on top of never being looked as a platformer) is neat.

Plus we had the 2D platformer return in a big way this gen with the likes of Rayman Origins, Kirby's Epic Yarn, and Donkey Kong Country Returns on the consoles.

While I enjoyed Up Your Arsenal and Jak and Daxter 1 as some damn good platformers in their own right I'd say it's not that severe of a drop off in the genre. I mean one of those franchises just got super f*cking stale, and the only big IP from last gen that looks like it dropped in quality is Prince of Persia. Which went from the excellent Sands of Time to ...Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands.

Either way I'd argue that this gens platformers were much better than last gens even if largely the shift has gone from 3D to 2D ones.
