Overrated?

Oh trust me, the main reason I think alot of people say Tales of Graces f was so great wasn't really because of it's greatness. I think many of them were so glad it was released stateside that they were gonna think it was great regardless of how good it was. I've been a fan of the Tales series for awhile and I think the western audience is getting shafted for the most part. Even on game that came out here, we didn't get the best versions all the time.(Tales of Vesperia PS3)

Overall bad, no.

So I was right, you can't divorce "I like it" from "It's a good game."

Are you going back on whatever it is up you posted before? You said anything in yellow sucked. Well...

As I said, I thought it was fun. It's definitely not a great game, but I don't regret buying it for $30.

Hmmm...Positive...Mixed...Negative.

Nope, I read that right. Positive/great games are in green. Mixed/good games in yellow. Negative/bad games in red.


So yeah, you're new to metacritic. Let me explain how game grading works.

First of all, ignore everything metacritic has to say on their grading process, as it's fatally flawed. Here is how games are graded - it's based on the North American school grade system.

A: ~90-100
B: ~80-~90
C: ~70-~80
D: ~60-~70
F: <60

Metacritic was originally created to grade and aggregate movies. Movies, unlike games, tend to use the whole 1-10 scale. This is why metacritic's conversion of letter grades to number scores and their definition of "positive, mixed, and negative" is so flawed - they're using the whole scale like they do in movies when that's not how games get graded on average.

FF2 is a solid D, and that's pretty much how I'd describe it.

They're just apparently both trolls who think highly of themselves and can't accept other people's opinions is the gist I'm getting from this topic.

Hmm, pretty much. Thanatos loves Xenoblade so much it's his gf while Vanille hates anything that is not by Squeenix so she hangs around JRPG boards saying they suck and deserve low sales, it's like "gurl rly?"
