That 4/10 reader review

#1MozillaFennekinPosted 4/29/2013 8:52:05 PM
Why would someone give this masterpiece such a low score? Did WestbrickIII even play the game?

We can definitely do this!

The low scores tend to be written by people who like comparing Awakening to older installments.

By itself, it's an excellent game.

Keep in mind, it's his opinion. And maybe he didn't play the game much, but if he wasn't enjoying it, why would he? Some people just don't like certain kinds of games. Most people like FE Awakening a lot right? Well I'm the same way with Kingdom Hearts. Loads of people love it, but I just can't play it no matter how many times I try.

Apparently he's beaten the game many many times

and he used to have a review that was 10/10 then changed it after doing Lunatic+

And people can have different opinions so I don't know why someone disliking a game is so baffling

There's been topics about that review, and everyone just said that he basically hated the game because he played it too much.

Yes, he did, he played it until he was sick of it and created his review in that state, hence explaining his acute animosity towards the game.

But while he did have some valid points concerning how the game was less complex in design than its predecessors in certain areas, the way he expressed himself just made him sound like an idiot who was bashing the game mindlessly even if he wasn't.

Multiple massive gameplay and difficulty balance flaws (although avatar and nosferatu, to an extent, are based off of pair up, so those three should probably be combined). Basically every review on thsi site that gave the game a 6/10 or lower addresses any number of these flaws, usually all of them.

A weak storyline doesn't help either.

WestbrickIII is the very definition of Burnout Hipster.
He writes this, which rightfully was one of the best reviews of 2012.

He plays the hell out of it...Then game comes out, gets popular. And well, there you go.

The fact that he played the game some 20 times should be setting off warning bells. It's like me bashing Tales of Symphonia. (213 times thru.) You simply don't play a 4/10 that much.

The guy was a troll who OD'd on Fire Emblem. His opinion is worth a grain a salt.

honestly, I think the most hilarious part was that he got so fed up trying to justify his score that he just up and closed his account.
