Some people here were hyping it up as Game of The Year.

NOTE:
All game trailers should look good no matter what. If a game company can't make a game look good in a trailer then there is something seriously wrong with their product or their marketing team. Many here were drooling all over the CGI trailer and pumping up with anticipation.

What's your point?

75% is a flop? @_@

I don't know who said it was GOTY, I certainly didn't, but it looks like what it's supposed to be.

I think when all is said and done it'll get around an 80 metacritic. Which isn't bad.

It doesn't look anything like the original trailer which first caught my interest

Quick, judge experience via other's opinions and arbitrary numbers without actually trying for yourself! It's the gamer way!

I'm pretty sure that Hideo confirmed that you don't argue MGS semantics with Onslaught. - Serazee - backloggery.com/main.php?user=onslaughtx

Devilman, Techland didn't make that trailer. That trailer has no real gameplay, but I can see why that would influence your expectation of the gameplay. It was just a CGI trailer. All the CGI cutscenes in, say, FF don't reflect the gameplay of those games, but people still know what the game plays like. If you watched some gameplay videos afet the initial trailer came out, you would know what it really is supposed to be.

75% is definitely not a flop. It's just that with a score like that, it doesn't really stand out.

On the PS3 there's already been 53 games with higher average scores this year alone:

And that's without even considering the huge lineup of games between now and the end of the year>
