Binary Domain: Possible the most overrated underrated game this gen?

#1JessicaJungxoPosted 3/12/2013 11:30:09 AM
Before I start, I'm a big fan of games of all genres from Harvest Moon to Gears of War and not loyal to any video game publisher. I'm writing this after my first play through on normal mode without a mic or any guides.

- Trust system is pointless.
- Bosses look awesome, but the mechanics are nothing new.
- Even with limb specific damage, I ended up just shooting the head all the time.
- Same 3 generic bot types that all fight the same. (gray, red, and blue)
- Predictable when boss battles will occur: wide open space? Get ready for a boss fight!
- Ending boss was actually not as intimidating as earlier bosses.

+ Funny as hell characters.
+ I enjoyed the twists, made me keep wanting to play.
+ Weapon upgrading system is a nice addition.

minor complaint: sad to see online is barren.

conclusion: I stand by my 7.5/10, which means it's just as good as Resident Evil 5. The story, plot, and characters are the main draw, however, the gameplay isn't anything special.

Overrated... And Underrated?

So is it... appropriately rated?

As weird as your topic title initially sounded, once your point washed over me… I’d have to say I agree 110%. That game is about as average as it gets, tired of always hearing how it’s “underrated gem of this gen!!!” and “10/10!!!” Like, really?? You don’t see ANY faults with that game?? Your complaints about the game are totally spot-on.

10/10 = super fun, couldn't have had more fun.

10/10 =/= without any faults.

Transformers Fall of Cybertron would like to have a word with you.

Just compare FoC's quality and it's (very poor) sales!

I'm basing my shock in the 10's of others on the first point as much, if not more, than the second point. I thought overall that game needed a LOT of improvement.

you mocked others for having a different opinion, I was just saying how a 10/10 to a lot of people does not mean without any faults. I also am one of those that gave it a 10/10.

I’m STILL shocked to find you would give it a 10/10. I’m not mocking the opinion of anyone who felt that the game deserved that score, only that the game seemed to have enough objective flaws that it wouldn’t typically fall into a 10/10 range for a lot of people. That’s my take; if it was 10/10 for anyone, then good for them.

I'm not a professional reviewer so I don't need to be responsible with my scoring, I can just base them on pure personal fun.
