    8 is average?

    Funny, I though 5 was average.

    No wonder so many gaming publications use such an inflated scoring system, which that kind of prevalent idiot attitude.

    Edit: HOLY CRAP! I CAN EDIT!

    #14 4 years ago
  15. Gadzooks!

    I loved the gritty grimy feel of the first Motorstorm despite the horrendous loading times. The rediculously bad collision detection and rubber band AI meant I couldnt take the racing seriously, but it was a hell of a lot of fun riding the boost right on the edge of exploding, and going BOOM! over the finish line.

    Didnt get on at all with MS:PR though. I thought it lost the whole ‘down there in the mud’ atmosphere of the first game and the controls felt far too floaty.

    I’m very suspicious of the whole narrative thing going on in MS:A. There’s absolutely no need for narrative in a racer, it’s wasted budget, IMO.

    #15 4 years ago
  16. StolenGlory

    @14 I utterly agree.

    In what fucking crazy ass world did I wake up in, in which 8 is considered an average score?

    The scoring system doesn’t run from 5-10 y’know.

    Honestly.

    #16 4 years ago
  17. xino

    well to me 8/10 is average…anything below that I will not consider.

    lOL….seriously this site makes me laugh!

    when someone dislikes a PS Exclusive, the fanboys will quickly jump on defence!

    #17 4 years ago
  18. Ireland Michael

    @16 “The scoring system doesn’t run from 5-10 y’know.”

    In most gaming publications (thanks to individuals such as xino) it sadly does.

    @17 Wait, I’m a PS3 fanboy now?

    I thought I was a 360 fanboy?

    Oh wait, that’s right, I support all format’s equally.

    I wouldn’t care what game this was. The fact that only a 8 or above score is your own definition of a valid game is utterly retarded.

    Do you even understand what the word average means? It’s the *middle* value, with everything to the left or right being equally lower or higher.

    8 is only average if you’re using some sort of retarded 16 scale system.

    I love how you say you’re waiting for Homefront as well, despite having no idea about the quality of the game. What if it ends up scoring nothing by 7?

    Last time I checked, 7 = good.

    #18 4 years ago
  19. DrDamn

    @17
    You didn’t say you disliked it – you said over 8 was an average score. Then you made some comment about a completely unrelated FPS. It doesn’t matter what the game is or on which platform.

    @27 ireland michael well 32/40 is the same number as 8/10, so seeing that this is the common score that this game is getting on most sites, i think they do know about a good game, and thats the exact word good, but not great

    @Michael
    Again assumption!
    I call people fanboy but never gave out names!
    if you are not a fanboy you wouldn’t take it as an offence!

    Just like Ethr the pc fanboy, he said something about psfanboy always defending their graphics, but you don’t see me going defensive and saying I’m not a fanboy because he did not directly say xino the psfanboy.

    And please don’t try and tell people what is right, wrong, average what so ever. If you want to be a teacher go back to school.
    7/10 to me is a straight rent and not considered average, 7/10 might be good for you but to me it’s not!

    @19
    EXACTLY!
    I didn’t say it was a piece of shit like Killzone 3. I gladly chose Homefront over the game and you have psfanboy as usual defending their exclusives.

    @26 and 27
    again… ps fanboy
    so you know Famistu’s taste more than us and their taste right?

    #30 4 years ago
  31. Deacon

    I would regard 8 as an average score. I am obviously aware that the average between 1 and 10 is indeed 5, but I agree with Xino on this one – we all expect most games to obtain at least a 7/10, thus making it a rather average score.

    9/10 would be good or great, while 10/10 = fantastic / unmissable.

    My point is that I would certainly refer to a 7/10 game as ‘average’.

    [ Had to edit cos I had my numbers all wrong... ; p ]

    #31 4 years ago
  32. xino

    HAHAHAHAHHAHA

    You want me to prove contradiction?

    I said the game is an average score for the 8/10.

    Famistu scored it 8/8/8

    now fanboys such as Michael and others are having a go at me for calling Motorstorm average because of the 8/10.
    Yet they complain Famistu wouldn’t know a good racing game because they scored it 8/8/8.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHA

    Farking fanboys! GTFO!

    @29
    You can always create an EU account – I’ve got US, Japanese and HK accounts myself. In the US I live in Beverly Hills as it’s the only zipcode which came to mind :D.

    I loved the original Motorstorm – it added something to the racing genre which you didn’t get anywhere else. Pacific Rift went too diverse. The first was great graphically because they nailed the environment within the bounds of their engine. Stop and examine it all and it didn’t look so great but the overall look and in-motion were fantastic. Pacific Rift was a mishmash of environments – generally messy graphically and confusing. I actually preferred 3D Rift as in parring down the graphics a little for the 3D processing the overall look became cleaner and clearer.

    Downloading the demo now – hoping the collapsing city environments theme will end up with the graphics having more focus and overall clarity this time. Has to be said so far it does look very nice.

    And also, the scores match but I was calling out their qualification to give out 8/8/8/8 in the first place and NOT the score itself.

    #37 4 years ago
  38. DrDamn

    @31
    “My point is that I would certainly refer to a 7/10 game as ‘average’.”

    So therefore 8/10 is above average no?

    @30
    You completely missed my point – the argument is nothing to do with the game or platform it’s on, it’s the idea that 8/10 is somehow average. That’s wrong what ever game you are talking about.

    #38 4 years ago
  39. ManuOtaku

    The game is good hence the 8/10 reviews (most of them), therefore is not great, end of story, average games are between 5 and 6 , good games are between 7 and 8, and great games 9 and beyond, plain and simple, come on guys dont argue about this, there are more important news like dance hero….oh good one activision good one…..

    #39 4 years ago
  40. DSB

    The easy way to do away with it, is to simply make an uneven scale. I prefer 1-5 personally, because that more than encompasses the number of ways you can feel about anything, and it actually forces the reviewer to come to a real conclusion of whether something is good, or bad.

    There’s absolutely no way you’re going to be able to feel 6 different ways about a piece of entertainment, unless you simply aren’t qualified to treat it – Not to mention 10. Most civilians tend to stick to two – “Did like” and “Didn’t like”, which is the context they look for in a review anyway.

    There’s no such thing as an average game, an average movie or an average album. Giving it an average mark just means it’s irrelevant, and if it’s irrelevant to the reviewer, then he simply isn’t doing his job of relating to the material and communicating what he finds to the audience.

    There’s always something that tips the scales. Being mediocre is still being shit.

    @32 The problem isn’t with all the Famitsu writers giving the game it an 8. I could care if they gave it a 10. I simply said their reviews were crap.

    They’re amateur journalists at best. Their reviews are shorter than my entire post right now. And there’s been constant controversy over their scores being inflated due to promotion. Why would I care about the opinion of a publication such as that?

    @35 “it depends on the publication, Edge, Games TM and Eg use the whole spectrum. a 7 from them means good.”

    Right now, those are the only publications I even bother to check the scores of.

    Regarding the game itself, I just played the demo. Here are my thoughts.

    The Good:

    - Everything feels faster, and the car mechanics feels a lot tighter in motion.
    - You get back on the track much faster no. No ending up in last place because of a single accidental crash anymore. Thank god!
    - The various routes you can take through the course is still as enjoyable an experience as ever.
    - The track altering during the races is definitely fun, although its nowhere near the level of something like Split Second.

    The Bad:

    – Lack of after-effects makes things look jaggy and artificial.
    – There seems to be a lot of rubber banding in this one. I’ve hit the edge of walls and scenery in numerous locations and instead of crashing I simply get awkwardly pushed back onto the track.

    And… oh look, my review of the demo was more detailed than Famitsu’s review of the full game!

    #42 4 years ago
  43. DaMan

    definitely, same here. also they’re practically the only ones not giving the games high scores based on their appeal to general public (like ie Famitsu enjoys doing).

    I think your using fanboy too loosely in your topics xino. You call people ps fanboys when each article you call them that on is a franchise specific. I can see where you would call someone a ps fanboy when its about the console. But, these last few point outs have been on a specific ip.

    In a nut shell instead of psfanboy, it should be MotorS fanboys or KZ3fanboys. Seeing how their defending the franchise and not the console

    @Michael
    so they are bad journalist now?
    what if they are Japanese and you are not Japanese?
    they view the games at different perspective!
    The game is aimed at the West not East so they scored it a decent 8/10. They would prefer a game like Initial D.

    Quantum Theory sold more in Japan and got good score in Japan though did bad in the West. So what exactly is your point?

    everyone has different taste in gaming.
    Killzone 3 was a piece of shit to me!
    Motorstorm seems average to me (demo downloading now:P)
    Famistu sees the game a 8/10.
    Now you are saying Famistu reviewers are bad at the job for their indecent review scores lately. But you missed the point that they are Japanese and you are not.

    “amateur ”

    BIG WORD! And very insulting to others.

    In fact I don’t really need to play the demo, I’ve tried the game at conventions in 3D, I wasn’t blown away and I’ve never tried any motorstorm games. I prefer burnout.

    This has nothing to do with them viewing games from a different perspective. I play games from *every* genre, from *every* corner of the world, and on *practically* every single format.

    Famitsu is the GamesMaster of Japan. It’s made *entirely* to pander to and promote the tastes of its readers. They have absolutely no independent opinion of their own. Someone puts enough advertising dollars into the issue, they’ll give the game top marks.

    A few years ago, their scores might have meant something. Now it’s just a glorified promotion rag.

    WHY DOES EVERY SINGLE THREAD HAVE TO DERAIL HERE?

    well so are you implying that Sony paid them some money to give the game an 8 score?

    “Famitsu is the GamesMaster of Japan. It’s made *entirely* to pander to and promote the tastes of its readers.”
    Everyone does it! Look at the incident with TopWare:/

    one thing i love about famistu is their unique score that gets different scores from different editors.
    If 1 gives a game like Ninja Gaiden III a 7/8/8/9 then it’s fair. One person did not like it that much. If they give a score like 10/10/10/10 then they got paid, something is going on or just honesty.

    I remember one scandal about Famistu using their score system to make MGS Peace Maker/Walker make the game sell.

    All I’m saying is, if you see an in-value score in Famistu from the rest, the score seems fair. Something like 9/9/9/9 proves something is going on. If it’s 7/8/8/8 then it makes sense because 1 person might be honest.

    @50 Dude, you are missing my point entirely.

    I’m saying their reviews are meaningless *regardless* of the score.

    “Everyone does it! Look at the incident with TopWare”

    Neither EDGE nor GamesTM do, and they’re the only gaming publication worth reading. I wouldn’t even waste the other 90% of them as toilet paper.

    EDGE has lost its way man. everyone’s the same!

    i never read GamesTM, I definitely know EDGE has become so picky just like IGN.

    #53 4 years ago
  54. StolenGlory

    @54

    I still believe EDGE to be a solid and informed read.

    Although with that said, to this day I still call bullshit on their Bladestorm score from back in 2007.

    8/10?

    No.

    Just no.

    But other than that little blip, they’ve usually been quite spot on for me and if I play a particular game after reading a review of theirs, I can generally identify with their opinions on it.

    #54 4 years ago
  55. DrDamn

    I think GamesTM can be too inconsistent – sometimes what you get is straight personal opinion of the reviewer, not a professional objective review. There is always and should always be a personal element to a professional review – but there should be a distinction between a professional review and the opinion of some random person off the internet. For me that’s an element of objectivity and balance.

    Edge I find too far up it’s own arse.

    #55 4 years ago
  56. DrDamn

    Oh video of the Playr review here … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BX0KE12aegY … useful for the footage even if you don’t rate their reviews.

    #56 4 years ago
  57. DSB

    Edge has been accused by several former employees of misconduct. Future Publishing isn’t exactly known for their eminent concern for journalistic integrity.

    I’m not really as bothered by that, as I am by the pseudo-intellectual wankfest.

    I think it’s always going to be a question of your own references. There are journalists I understand, and journalists that I know to be the exact opposite of myself, and that helps me in understanding the games they write about.

    It’s pretty rare that the title of a magazine actually signifies a red thread between the people writing for it. It’s usually just a brand.

    #57 4 years ago
  58. StolenGlory

    @57

    You make a decent point actually. Whilst I do enjoy their reviews to an extent, they wouldn’t half be a lot more palatable if they seperated cranium from rectum once in a while.

    all their points stand regardless of the writing, although sometimes they do make me giggle, same with Eurogamer.. they seem to forget that they’re evaluating toys. I don’t really mind that anyway, it only improves my foreign language skills.

    #60 4 years ago
  61. Gekidami

    @59
    I’m pretty sure its because Sony have MLB 11 coming out this month in the US and they dont want both games out at the same time.

    The demo is fun, but that’s about it. For me this probably won’t last long, graphically it’s really nothing incredibly special neither.

    #62 4 years ago
  63. Dr.Ghettoblaster

    Ok.

    I want this game.

    BAD.

    I live in USA. I can simply import the Euro version and I should have NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER playing online, saving, reading, and patching any necessary updates, right?

    The demo is nice

    I reckon in short bursts this game would be great to play!
