I never trusted any magazine or website that is affiliated with big name video game publishers. Independent reviews is where the truth is at.I mean, how can you take these jokers seriously if this is their final verdict:Muldred said:You can't take a review seriously from a magazine that gave DA2 a 95/100. That's just...no.
The only thing remotely embarrassing about that is the mention of it being a modern classic. 95 is high but some are easy graders.Muldred said:
I think the mocking/hatred against DAII is quite universal and ubiquitous in the net, Firky, so it is here. In my opinion the game was enjoyable, but flawed (let's say 7,5/10). It one of the worst Bioware games, but that not saying too much since in my opinion Bioware standars are quite high. Some of its problems are quite incredible for a game from experienced developers as the canadians (i.e., repeated levels).Firky said:Seriously? I'm as old school/hardcore/PC/whatever as it gets and I can't stand the complaining about DAII. It's just a game. It was fine. Enjoyable. It's missing a lot of traditional elements associated with the RPG genre, I get that, but so what? It is what it is.I've come over here to read the boards and get interested in TW2 and practically every thread is making fun of DAII or delighting in its "perceived failure." If this is the future of gaming discourse, I'm out. Why anyone would think these devs would want a backhanded compliment like "We hate DAII, but we love you" I have no idea.Otherwise, this is an amazing score. I'm really looking forward to being able to read criticisms of the game. (Which are more useful than score, IMO.)
Nah, they used the press preview build. They're judging the whole game with 1/3 of it at maximum.Firky said:How did they get a full copy of the game? Is this a review, or a preview?
