wow, what an incredibly developer biased review. A ridiculous score glossing over the obvious flaws in the game. Conclusion- this review site cannot be trusted or treated seriously.

Welcome Hammer!  I hope you retract your statement - I resent the implication that it is a developer-based review and impuning the entire site for it rubs me the wrong way.  You can disagree with my assessment of the game, slandering the site just makes you look foolish given the hundreds of reviews that are dead-on.

Thanks!  Besides...I want to like you, you are a Wings fan. smile

... and since the staff is too nixce to say so, I'll take the opportunity to remind hammer600 and any users reading this that, hey... people don't like crapweasels, but they do like people who suggest improvements in a constructive way.

Or at least I'm hoping so... huh?

Hell, I was surprised when I saw it- that's the highest score this site has ever given a game!  I don't think Ron gave it that score lightly...

Basically, though, all it boils down to the fact that he just liked it a helluva lot more than you do.

Personally I thought the review was dead on.  I personally enjoyed the game more than either KOTOR and am eagerly hoping for a sequel.

I apologize about the tone of my post. I really enjoy the site and did not intend to offend anyone. Just feel the score is a bit high. Sorry. biggrin

You sure do have an odd way of saying, "gee I thought that review was a bit high.... this is why I thought it was high..." and actually listing out why you thought it was high... instead you bashed the site and it's reviewers...

Myself I would of ranked it in the mid 70s. The combat is too flawed and the story wasn't that engaging. Still, props for doing an original rpg set  in something other than a LOTR rip off

My thoughts exactly.  There was nothing about the story or characters that interested me at all, and I quit about 11 hours in.  It just felt like an asian-themed KotOR mod to me, which wasn't really that interesting.

*nods*  As with many reviews, your mileage may vary.  People love Gran Turismo but personally I just can't get into it at all.  I'm not a gear-head and I don't like driving a crappy car to earn my way to the fun ones.  *shrug*  On those types of reviews you are looking at high-90s scores, but I just ignore the numbers and read the text.  smile

I'm about 11 hrs in and I'd give it a B-.  So I guess that's low 80's maybe...I haven't played any XBOX in about 4 days because this is my go to title right now.

In other words, I'm too lazy to learn the controls of another game and I don't care enough about this one to invest the time.... But I will be finishing it...and probably before I do move onto something else...

Once again, when I reread my post this morning I realized how inflamatory and insulting it was.

I honestly enjoy this site, as a matter of fact it has been my homepage for months.

No excuses but last night I was frustrated after a 4 hour WOW session because I am having a hard time getting to level 39. And I am worried about affording my mount.

All I can do is apologize again, and state that I know the reviews on this site are honest and reflective of the reviewers viewpoint. Knightshade I hope you can forgive me.

Now back to WOW.

Maybe the review is referring to 98% badness of voice acting. Because while the game is really good, the acting is BAD.

Or the 98% of the game that is dialogue and text. slywink
