Weird.

The only negative comment is "lack of presentational quality".


Probably means they were disappointed in the look and feel of the menus and such.


If I were only disappointed by the menus, I would not shave off 2 points right away.
Anyway, I'm currently reading the review. I'm sure Colin pointed out more cons in detail.

The only negative they mentioned was lack of presentation.

Very unimportant in a game like this in my mind, though I Definately agree with them

Good on you IGN. Ashame that most people see an 8.0 as a bad score.

IGN gave Hitman a 9/10 so I'll read some others first.

Actually, based on the review, it was more directed at the underwhelming delivery of the story material in Arcade mode.

Here's the quote of what seemed to hurt the score the most:

"Unfortunately, while playing against the computer in solo mode proves fun, the experience can also become redundant and predictable. I was disappointed during my first play through to see the story told through static images coupled with voiceovers for both a character’s intro and ending, accompanied by a limited, animated take on the rivalry battle itself. This is the same for each character. All-Stars could have used more love in its single-player presentation, even if the campaigns, tutorials and trials act as excellent proving grounds before jumping into multiplayer (and even if there are a flood of unlockables, from icons to cheerleader-like minions and everything in between, to earn). If SuperBot makes a sequel, this is the greatest problem in the game worthy of being fixed."

They mean story mode not the menus guys. They never once mentioned the menus in the review. Y'all should read.

It's hard to take this review seriously when they called this game more technical than Smash. No doubt they've never seen high level Smash or played anyone good. But they've admitted to being bad at fighting games in general so I can't be too picky.

I'm kind of suprised by this review. They were really hyping this game game up, I was sure they were going to give it an 8.5 at least or higher.

8/10 in this day and age unfortunately is average at best especially for IGN.

Lack of a fleshed out story is such a stupid complaint for a fighting game. They might as well take off 2 points for just about every fighting game this gen because of that.

I guess we won't get the subspace scale story then... Kind of disappointing, but it's nice to see the game is doing good.
