You thought the Zelda 8.8 review was bad?

    Red Steel review. 5.5
    http://au.gamespot.com/wii/action/redsteel/review.html

    Red Steel introduces a promising control scheme both for shooting thugs and for slashing them with samurai swords, but wraps it in a buggy, thoroughly unimpressive game.

    The Good: Interesting take on first-person shooter controls; nice explosions and destructible environments.

    The Bad: Clunky sword-fighting sequences slapped into the middle of all the shooting; inane story chock-full of painful dialogue and voice acting; numerous noticeable bugs and glitches.

    I was expecting at least a 7.0 or above. This is horrible. :/

    Ouch. But the Zelda review is not bad on the other hand. 8.8 is well above average.

    Well, let's see how the casuals like it.
    Obviously, we gotta step back and think whether this game is geared toward us. Maybe our time is up...

    Dark Messiah was fantastic. They reviewed it horribly because their shatty dells weren't up to the job apparently. they complained of bugs and glitches and horrible issues all around, when I didn't have a single problem with the game. Gamespot makes me sick >.<

    As for Red Steel, I hope it does well, but.... until we see more reviews. Its hard to tell, with the way GS has been rating recently.

    If there is one game on Wii geared towards us hardcore gamers, it's Red Steel...

    Ive decided to not mind what those reviews say. When I say "those reviews" I mean "all reviews" cause they're usually a)uninformed or b)biased.

    I go by screenshots and videos to get an opinion on a game rather than reading someone elses bullcrap (that Detroit freepress article comes to mind...)

    I don't think so, my friend. Never will an FPS be more geared toward the hardcore than action-rpgs like Zelda.
    If you had to choose between Red Steel or Zelda, what would you choose?

    You shouldn't put stock in someones opinion just because they have a website.

    This is why I don't read reviews anymore, if I pick my games based on what one or some website shmucks say, then I'm probably gonna miss out on some great games.

    The closest thing I do to reading reviews is talk to my friends about the game who have a simillar taste in gaming.

    Oh lord. Ubisoft talks a good game about supporting Wii, but watch them pull support quickly once their crappy launch games bomb. And, of course, it'll be all Nintendo's fault.

    Wow. God forbid these guys actually get off their fat @$$3$ and try to immerse themselves in the game. Hell, if anything, they'd probably lose a few pounds from a couple rounds of Wii Bowling... [​IMG]

    Just take a look at those fat bastard Gamespot reviewers... maybe the side effect of physical movement know as exercise, is just a little to much for them to handle, hence some of their ridiculous wii review scores...
