If anything the Splatoon 2 long game might be premature. Update 3.0 coming at the end of this month, followed by Octo Expansion in the summer.

 

It’s already gone from an 8/10 sequel to a 10. We’ve only just begun and I’d guess I’ve already spent more time playing Salmon Run on its own than Odyssey.

8/10...

 

Just like Resi 4 was only a 9.

 

But Bayo and every From game is a 10

 

Edge. Sort yourself out.

 

Bloodborne and - only after a retrospective reappraisal years after the original review - Dark Souls then. Every From game. All of those Armored Core, Otogi, King's Field games that From released must have been in an alternate reality. ;)

I haven't finished GoW yet, but it's a 9 from me so far and an exceptional game. I do think all the tens are overated. They want to support it because games like this don't really get made anymore. But a lot of what GoW does is quite old fashioned.

8/10 for GOW?

 

1 more than SOT?
 

Jesus, those guys really are out of touch.

American games get penalised. Strong unconscious bias in bath. If this same game was uprezzed by media molecule it would be an 11.

I’m at the witches house in GOW. 

 

That one moment with no actual gameplay is better than the entirety of Bayonetta 1 and 2.

 

You'd bloomin love Space Ace and Dragons Lair!

This is the first time I've been to Reset Era since it launched. Good grief. What an embarrassment of a forum. 

 

I'll never complain about you guys again. :hug:

An 8 is a good score all you moaning mentalists :lol:

Eights have just been devalued over the years given the amount of shit games that have gotten it across all game criticism. realistically no one familiar with video games reads that and goes: oohh that must be good. Not if they have any context. 

 

they can call it whatever they want (Edge just calls it Eight) but in games journalism it has meant effectively slightly better than mediocre for all of 20 years. something like 60 publications gave this game a ten because there is no other number to give it with nines having been so inflated over the years. Little Big Planet motherfucking 3! was an edge nine.

I threw down a giant moratorium on reviews in general back in 2008 when Edge gave Little Big Planet a 10. The disconnect between that review and what I played was too staggering to ignore.

Reaction over. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt given I’m only a few hours in, but if it gets to the point where that score is patently absurd I’m unsubbing. 

As long as you don't overreact :D

I'll tell you what I've just read that Edge review as mine came today, and it's a superbly written piece. I'd urge everyone to give it a read. Also I agree with them about Alfheim, that is one visually stunning level. 

 

I'd give their review 9/10 ;)

 

Also nice Post Sctipt in which they draw comparisons with RE4.
