When I played GR:Wildlands, game just threw list of bosses and subbosses right at beginning at me and that was it. Nothing innovative only predicted mission structure all the way to the end. Then I played AC:Origins and... same. Here is the list of bosses to kill, go. Again and again with other Ubisoft games and now in FC5... same! Here is the map, that sector for that boss, that one for other boss, but to get to him/her first do enough BS grind etc.. SAME as past x number Ubisoft games.

I am sorry, I have life to life, not to waste it on something like this! In real life you get paid for doing *work*, how is this 9? Game is garbage.

@blueinheaven: Let me explain it to you.

In today's world, reviewer cannot simply say (his/her) true reasons because those may often be regarded as "personal opinions" and his whole site/company may even get as far as law suited, but usually higher staff may discredit or fire him. That's why today, you almost never see game being down-scored by the attributes such as "boring" for example.

Instead you may see completely ridiculous excuses like "performance", "bugs" and so on, yet 2 different games with same "attributes" will get significantly different score. How come? Simple. One was less boring than other.

This game is a good example. You can have a pretty much well-around game with no significant flaws like this one, but if it is na uninspired rehash of all you have seen already 1000 times since HOMM1 and there just isn't anything original or something that make's you not to let go till morning, that's the score game get. 7, sometimes even 8(depending on estimated public expectations). Reviewer cannot simply write "game is a freaking boring garbage *to me*, 5/10 - bye" because he would get eaten alive and fired. He knows game have no significant flaws and may appeal to many people(without experience and/or substance) who haven't seen it all before. They won't know there is no new art and everything is reused ideas from other games(like research tree looking straight from civ. copy). So the game get 7(to play safe and keep the job and name), after all it's overall well rounded who care about originality or "hookness". That's personal after all.

Also forget reading pros and cons they are fabricated garbage. Score is closest you get to real reviewer impressions of the game but even then you need to look beyond, so like in this case since we know game is "just unoriginal and /or boring" but AAA otherwise, score cannot be less that 7 from professional view, real score is thus 5-6. That is, completely mediocre game or slightly above if you dig this type.

Now after you "re-calculate" game's score to be more real, next you need to ask yourself who you are and what you like to play. How much of this have you played before, is it your favorite style, do you care about originality/ideas or are you ok with just next game existing etc. Based on that you will know whether this is for you.

Long story short, don't expect real reasons spelled out to you on a professional website and forget about completely made up "good and bad". 7 in this case mean: game is uninspired and boring, otherwise pragmatically without significant flaws. That's the score between the lines. And reason it is scored differently elsewhere is again for same reasons, IGN(and most of player base) either have even less substance to them, or they couldn't care less.

I want my good old Gamespot back. With staff like from PS1-2 era. If you cannot find decent reviewers who have an ability to differentiate quality from crap, and what define "great" game in crowd of thousand's recycled garbage, then better close this site before it become new CNN joke. Oh and in case they are forced to "think this way" rather than their own by GS administration, shame on you, you derogatory pig-suits!

"When they said this is a fantasy based on reality, my first though was that we where gonna see the heavy toll war has on people, topics like discrimination, slavery and human suffering, after all, this was said to be a very dark story. Instead the reality we got is the obsession people have with taking selfies and using filters, eating exotic foods, listening to bad music in the radio that no one wants to listen to but hipsters because its not "mainstream", fishing and growing organic carrots."

^Yep don't forget this was intended for US market, what else to expect in this age :). It also wouldn't surprise me if game started with:

"This game was made by people from multiple cultures, *genders*, ... bla bla... not intended to offend... bla bla... all is fictional and do not represent real..."

That said, try Yakuza 0, I would never believe someone can actually pull such thing today, there is your true dark story in there(just finished it).

@Arguyle: Ok let me explain. By me 5 is average, not 7. And this one is just weak and unnecessary title, hence 3. Not an average game(but below) because I average based on my all time experience and games released since I started gaming, that is since 8bit. So there is nothing even average for me here, its just a weak and unoriginal copycat in every single area.

Also, by my judgement average game is not the one that is "stable enough" and/or without "significant mechanic flaws" like most reviewers go. I judge games based on how much they hook me, what they bring on the table in terms of art, story, gameplay, music, originality etc. compare to thousands I played before. What time in morning I went sleep because I couldn't let go etc. I dont even judge them based on optimizations/FPS they can pull, as long as they are not too buggy. Average game should at least be interesting and original enough to not me feel allergic to it. Feel free to differ of course.

Even if you would consider this at least average(5) game though, I am still off by 2 points vs GS's 4 points, or 2x better accuracy(unless we also differ on scoring as well, that is, if you average at 7) :).

Lets see. BORING generic music putting player to sleep, by the numbers "art" wannabe graphics, enemies often staying in spots without movement until you "trigger" them - having no purpose, same voice actor for many NPC's without any sound modification, blatant ripoff of other game from every single aspect(gameplay, graphics, music...), yet another cheap budget game, from intro looking like another generic story with atrocious narrator. 9/10

I mean, how many of this recycled garbage before people/reviewers realize its NOT art, its NOT mentally stimulating and its NOT at all interesting? My body is literally developing allergy to these types of games.

9/10? Give me a break. 3/10 I say.

If you have a budget, make a type of game that can be handled without any compromises within it. PS1 games are more interesting to play how about that.

@alienko: You dont know that. I do expect everything from game, or at least some effort to hook me, not a dumb stuff. People like you keep saying same for everything else, sometimes even for RPG's.

@fecalmatters: It was ok I finished it, but not really *that* special, aside graphics which were quite great for that time. I personally liked first the most.

@frostblind: Exactly. And its interesting people always pinpoint same negatives like "not enough to explore" etc. but nobody finally say its really same old garbage story of certain "big guy" vs "group of rebels" like we have seen in... I dont know... 1m times?

No twists, no real narrative, no great story to accompany the world. Just a garbage filler with ugly accents, made on cheap.

How many more times we have to liberate individual "map sections" and support certain "factions" to get to some final crappy dude before it gets old. meh
