Games don't get bombed for political reasons, do they?
So many user reviews on Steam and Metacritic giving games 0s for things that have nothing to do with how the game plays. It's why I find the user scores mostly useless and tend to ignore them.
I'm not saying that there aren't extraneous factors that may or may not influence whether I buy a game or not - there are. But that's one of the reasons I visit this and other forums: for those extra bits. But they have no place in a review.
The first one played like a crap if you didn't do what they wanted you to do(use elemental crap 24 / 7 / 365). It also looked like crap and had a crappy cartoon like story with one of most irritating cast ever. Idk, maybe manga guys can bear it. Me? Fuck off. Ugh, what a dreadful game!cheyane said:I am so very happy reading this. I absolutely loved the first game with all its flaws. The cheese seller and that guy who tries to trick you into having sex with him, their voices still occasionally still run through my head. My son who did not play the game was singing one of the vendor chants without realising it.
If you cannot get into the turn based combat or the way the game plays and looks I must say you're missing something really good and that's a pity.
Will be playing this as soon as I finish with my current stuff or else they will all be shoved aside in favour of this gorgeous game.
If only GW 2 were just a tiny bit less silly(more of Prophecies / Nightfall, less of Eye tyvm!) and there was just a tiny modicum more reason to play(it feels pointless and quite childlike to me)...I mean combat wise, the game's quite fun and it has a LOT of potential...it's just pointless open world + childlike crap buries it all.
I think it's the colorful UI and environments that give it a less weighty vibe.
I enjoyed the darker atmosphere of, say, WAR, but I enjoy the focus on open world content, and I don't mind the lighter atmosphere of GW2's environments and UI.
