Dead Rising 3 earns an AVERAGE "70" on Joystiq, EuroGamer, GameSpot

#1BigBOO2UPosted 11/18/2013 10:21:03 AM
No-name or MS paid sites like Xbox Achievements (90) and The Toronto Globe and Mail (100! Get Real!) are currently spiking the game's Metacritic scores at the moment higher than they should be. General consensus is it's "OKAY"

I'm sure some will disagree, but an "OKAY" game doesn't make me want to rush out and buy the console. (I would say the same for the Sony games too so don't get your panties in a knot, Xbots.) I do find it funny that Forza 5 and Ryse are being "held back" though.

Who knew that failing to put a "?" at the end of a sentence will bring down the wrath of the Mods on you for "Trolling" ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

I love today's review score system.

1-6 = Trash
7-8 = Decent
9-10 = GOTY

Ignoring the troll nature of this topic, Dead Rising 3 is around a 70 on average, and it looks like it will be very fun to play. Those two things are not mutually exclusive.

Ugh, I knew this would happen. It's really hard to tell anythings next gen on it except for Ryse.

You realize xbox achievements has a ps3 trophy version site as well.

Also anyone who has seen their editorial style can see its clearly a website where they say what they want

It has an average score higher than Killzone. Sorry PS fanboys.

...And by the way, why are you flat-out ignoring other reviews that clearly aren't from "MS paid sites" (which is an assumption that there are any to begin with)?? Those reviews play into the average, too.

What happened to everyone screaming how Polygon was obviously paid for by Microsoft since they helped fund them? Yet, Polygon is rating the games as they should be rated.
