    It was predicted to be like this COA (Crap On Arrival) oh well i guess a price drop most will wait for.

    Purely subjective though judging on reviews.

    Seems like first impressions are never wrong. For the last week I’ve wanted to give it a chance, but yeah.

    It always looked dull, I’ll see ya on PS+ Knack. This is what they delayed the Last Guardian for… Fuck you Cerny.

    Yeah really didn’t expect anything from Knack although I did think maybe 6′s across the board. So mostly correct so far.

    The demo i played really didn’t leave a good impression, it was pretty though.

    Woah, thats a mixed bag! Still, looking forward to playing it. Resogun is a hit, though! OPM gave it a 9

  13. TrickyAudio

    Well, I guess theres always Lego Marvel!

    @11, And its free! Whoop!

    I think I’d probably enjoy this, but I’ve always said it shouldn’t be a full price title and if it was more reasonably priced it might have been reviewed more favourably … haha what am I thinking, reviewers never take cost of title into account! Will wait for it to be on PS+ or very cheap in sales.

    It’s launch people. How many people were in love with resistance fall of man when ps3 launched? It will get better with time. ISS will boost it back up

    Same here I wished they put pupeeteer and dressed it up as a PS4 launch title because that game was absolutely fantastic! This game seems like another tech demo and a poorly executed game.

    @ 15 Mate, I got Resistance, COD 3 and The Godfather Dons Edition on PS3 launch night. This is a 100% better than that.

    I got the telltals lego kinda impression outta this game. Can’t say that I’m surprised at all about the scores, disappointing considering the hype particularly by the PS4′s lead architect Mark Cerny.

    This looked god awful, I really couldn’t see why anyone thought this title was going to be any good atall.

    Lego Avengers should get much more attention, but, people can get that on systems they may already own.

    Overall, off to a poor start exclusives-wise. Resogun (which is free), looking to have bested the full price retail efforts.

    Ouch! This plus KZ has terrible AI.
    PS4- We have great multi-platt titles!

    This game sucks. I’ve been playing it myself, and I can confirm is sucks ass

    I expect the Xbone to do a little better (they have more shit to throw at the fan!), but this is just classic launch territory.

    Same here especially since MS is so nice to pull an embargo until launch of the console.

    #25 1 year ago
  26. DrDamn

    Forza will pull KZ like scores, DR3 will pull Knack like scores and Ryse could go either way I reckon. Zoo Tycoon, Loco-cycle and The Fighter Within probably Knack-like.

    Well Sony haven’t exactly lifted the embargo well before the console launch have they?

    #26 1 year ago
  27. Phoenixblight


    They didn’t have an embargo people were doing comparisons of BF4 on all next gen and they mentioned in those reviews that they couldn’t really talk about Xbox One. The fact I have seen more stuff on PS4 than Xbox One titles doesn’t help either and I have been reading reviews and previews of next gen extensively. Though I am getting a PS4, I still look at the other side of the fence. :P

    I see a Nintendroid wants to be fed and offering an opinion no-one asked for.

    Sad thing is you think thats damage control which is ironic coming from you.

    Was anybody actually looking forward to this? Seriously.

    This looked shit from the beginning. Plenty of people could see that, myself included.

    Absolutely NO surprises here.

    #34 1 year ago
  35. TheBlackHole


    You should totally have called it a G1GAflop ;)

    #35 1 year ago

    More like a ‘TERRI’flop.

    The game looks sympathetic visually but it failed at something crucial.
    The game is visually targeting young audience, the game probably had too much talk around across articles and forced shut gamers’ eyes as a result of visual “appeal” but reality is here, it may be fun to play but it does not attract.

    Next Gen Is Here! First shit game on ps4. I fully expect double the amount of tits in next God of War game as compensation Sony.
    Now Imma gonna put those video reviews on my tablet and go through the line of people freezing their asses off waiting in line for ps4.

    Calling me a Nintendoid? LOL I play games on all consoles. Yet you primarily play on Sony consoles.

    And I can give my opinion whenever I want drone, its a comment board you idiot.

    @38 lol that kind of is the GOW formula isn’t it?

    Sony, offering 40% more tits than Xbox One!

  41. Legendaryboss

    Proof for that claim? None? Just as expected. Can’t be offended if you can’t prove it.

    As for your opinion don’t direct to someone who never asked for it.

    Good to know you remember comment terms as it was only a week ago you were forbidding me from section Nintendo for…

    Just watched a stream of this.

    What the hell were they thinking? Objects you destroy still disappear a mere 1.5 seconds after you destroy it, making it seem the console is running with 512MB RAM or something.

    There is NO excuse for crap like this in next gen games. Destruction is worthless if it disappears seconds after it’s destroyed (MGS Rising is guilty of this aswell).

    Such a shame.
