    He only gives those shitty scores for attention on his blog. He knows about as much as a bog brush when it comes to video games.

    Mediocre: 5s are an exercise in apathy, neither Solid nor Liquid. Not exactly bad, but not very good either. Just a bit "meh," really. Basically, this is like a "7" on your grandfather's blog.
    No this I do not agree. It's lke saying that scoring a test with a mere 50% is 'not exactly bad, but not very good either' when it's plainly not good. This guys doesn't know how to make a decent review. And I'm so glad he's not teacher. Or else he would fail so many students.

    I know who this guy is and I fucking hate him for giving Vanquish a 5/10 but Kid Icarus isn't even out yet.

    Are you implying that the guy only likes 1st person shooter games by putting those two at the end for comparison? Do you have any comparable scores from similar games?


    The blog defines what the scores mean, not the reader. His 5 might be the equivalent of an IGN 7 by his own standards. Regardless, people are entitled to their opinion, and you guys are entitled to disagree with those opinions, but only when you've had the same experience.


    Welcome to GBATemp.

    Me, I'm staying open minded. Nintendo Life scored the game 9, IGN 8.5, this guy 5. From what I've seen of the game and other reviews I'm thinking a 9 is probably going to be a bit strong, but I won't know until I play it, right?

    Because Guild plays CoD and dislikes Vanquish?

    And clearly he deserves a fair chance when it comes to his reviews, right?
    Oh come now, that's a little harsh to Guild
    Just a little

    Wait is GBAtemp overacting because an anticipated Nintendo game got a poor review by a mediocre reviewer?

    Colour me surprised.


    Because being critical about Nintendo equals hatred to Nintendo?

    That's not accurate at all.
    I'm not implying anything, I merely presented some of his old reviews. And there are no similar games to Uprising...

    Games on Midna's list I played:
    • Vanquish
    • Assassin's Creed 2
    Games on Midna's list I did not play:
    • Mario Kart 7
    • CoD MW3
    • Killzone 3
    'Kay.

    EDIT: And an 83 Metascore is not the glorious 10/10 everyone was expecting.

    I'm more outraged at the Assassin's Creed 2 thing. 3/10? You shittin' me? Vanquish is also an outrage. I'd accept a 7/10 AT THE LOWEST but 5/10 on a TPS game that really went streets ahead of other TPS games is rather remarkable.

    I think people just need to take reviews a little less seriously. It's your opinion and how you like the game, some games might score 0/10 even in IGN and still be very enjoyable by some gamers.
