Great....now DKCTF got a 9.25/10...

One rating doesn't mean anything. How about 10? Or 20?
You're so silly for wanting a game based on a sole review.

DON'T RELY ONLY ON MERE NUMBERS.

Seriously, the "core" of each review is a list of (objective) pros and cons. This gives you a general idea of what to expect (and you can watch a couple of gameplay videos as well to ensure whether you will make a purchase or not). Any review that doesn't do a good job of providing such a list is UNPROFESSIONAL, no matter how well written it is. That is why user reviews should be avoided most of the time.

Oh, but what do I know...


I agree with this.

Oh hey, LoS 2 got a mediocre score just like LoS 1 did. Good thing I actually played LoS 1 and enjoyed the hell out of it, and therefore know better than to listen to a bunch of bitter fans that are just angry they got a game with some substance and aesthetic instead of another one of Iga's cut+paste jobs.

Isn't that site well known for a very strong pro-Nintendo bias?

Not saying DKCTF will be bad, but...are the reviews really fair? More interested in what mainstream sites will say, not that I expect it will be especially low.


read the review? its not like they give it a score and not back it up at all

Don't understand why it's getting these high scores, it doesn't look that good to me

The only reviewer that I trust is Mark from Classic Game Room and Angry Joe.


This. The dude holds no punches. But he's also completely fair. Although the Vectrex rambling sometimes gets old.

*looks at Tomb Raider score*

That's... pretty inaccurate. They must've gotten paid or bribed for that score.

I'm buying it.


Already played it. This game is definitely maybe a 5/10 at best. Horrid controls, bad graphics and awful story


DDP886, is that you?


Nope, it's AstroFrost's trolling alt.


Yep, wreaks of ass frosting. It must be him.


LMAO

I like Mark. No scores... just him playing the game and enjoying himself.

Every review is just the opinion of one person anyway, so I don't understand why people even take them seriously.
