8.9 Overall... Sound 9.0? Lasting Appeal 9.0? - CoD Fanboy Cunts! ;D

 
 
  
   
 
Enjoy!

Sweet, I was looking forward to this one. 

#3 Posted by Zereta (1368 posts) -

For a game whose demo I love more than the entire full version of the other big name modern warfare shooter, 8.9 seems like a shit score. At least to me. In comparison of course. 
 
No matter. BF: BC2 will steal my life away.

Yeah - the overall score is definitly is on the very low end. Almost unacceptably low. Especially given the fact the reviewer thought BF:BC 2's sound design is worth a mere 9.0. Borderline offensively ignorant. Same goes for the lasting appeal. 9.0? Serisously? For anybody enjoying BF's style of gameplay it's easily a 10 out 10 when it comes to lasting appeal. Hell - I've clocked in over 250 hours and the game ain't even out yet. 
 
He should have at least have bumped it up to a 9.0. The 8.9 score seems like a dick move to get nerdrage pageviews to me.

mmmmm. He calls out the single player being six hours, That seems to be the standard in FPS genre.

#14 Posted by DCFGS3 (1054 posts) -

Wait, he was criticising this game for being too dramatic compared to MW2!??!? That is bs, MW2 is the zenith of too much drama.

10 is reserved for Battlefield 3 obviously.

Since a majority of us here has acutally played the Beta and Demo of BF:BC 2 - of course we can. At least when it comes to sound design and lasting appeal. 
 
 The sound design is undisputably the best in the bizz. It deserves the perfect 10. Many of us have clocked in countless hours in the demo and beta already - way more than in most full game releases. Anything but a 10 for lasting appeal is a mockery.  
 
On a sidenote: IGN gave MW2 a perfect 10 in both sound design and lasting appeal. Now that's really fucked up.

I think if anything really, 9 for sound compared to freakin MW2's 10 is horrible.

P.S. I've got 250h of playtime on the beta and demo combined. It's very likely I've already spent 10x more time on BF:BC 2 than the IGN reviewer. 
 
Lasting appeal a 9.0... ridiculous!

Guess what. I love Battlefield. It's the kind of franchise, which has devoted fans. I guess all you're capable off gobbling down one game after the other and thus can't understand my devotion. Once you've played 1000+ hours of any franchise - be it Street Fighter, Starcraft, WoW, CoD or whatever - you will understand. 
 
Anyways - get the fuck off your 'whatever - man...' horse.

You may have played more total time than him but he's played the entire game.  And he seems to have enjoyed it quite a bit.   So go play it as long as a 10 out of 10 lasting appeal score deserves.  Stop being so angry that someone else only thinks this game is simply great.
@Aishan said:

No, you walked into a world where 8.9 out of 10 is a bad score.   
#27 Edited by Seppli (10251 posts) -

First of all, I'm not angry. 8.9 overall is a great score.  
  
Anyways - there's no explanation given in the review why the sound design is a mere 9.0 and not a 10. The general opinion being that BF:BC 2 has the best or one of the best sound designs in the bizz. Same goes for the lasting appeal. The number has been pulled out of an ass without a reasoning. I see plenty of reasons why it should get the perfect 10 in those two categories from what I've played from the game thus far. 
 
Especially considering IGN gave MW2 a perfect 10 for its sound and its lasting appeal, I am not the only one thinking it's 'effin inconsistent.

#29 Posted by baconbits33 (1156 posts) -

Why is everyone freakin out about the score? It's freakin IGN, their reviews almost always suck, we all know that. And as soon as he said Bad Company was annoying in the first game, and then began to compare it to MW2 you should of realized that it was obviously gonna be a standard IGN review: Bullshit.

#30 Posted by EvolutionX0 (413 posts) -

Seems like Jeff is going to put out his review soon then, I saw him on IGNs Squad. As for the review it has a reasonable score, i don't know what the single player is yet so im going to have to figure that one out by my self but the multiplayer is intense and is way better than MW2, that is why I'm getting it.

#31 Edited by Pie (7099 posts) -

Although its a very good score i'd like to know what makes MW2 better. Campaign is roughly same length and sounds of about equal quality. Multiplayer sounds fantastic just like MW2 is (in a different way albeit). 
The 8.9 score seems like a very nerd rage page view move, I mean the game got 4/5 9's and just one 8 in the closing comments (and some of those sound wrong, sound only an 9? Lasting appeal 9 even though the quote with that is  

This is the kind of multiplayer game you can go back to for months and months without getting bored.

sounds like a ten to me) 
I really am buying into the whole minute numbers nerdrage thing but why did both MW2 and BC2 get 9 in graphics? From what i've saw BC2 has superior graphics. 
Well I dont know

I agree with this. I mean MW2's gun sounds are like pea shooters compared to this game's sound quality.
#34 Posted by Weeber (36 posts) -

You guys are aware that MW2 was not reviewed by the same person right? So comparing the two scores is kind of silly.

How long was the demo/beta avaiable for, about 30 days, give or take? Doesn't that mean that you spent a third of an entire month playing games?
#37 Posted by cap123 (2477 posts) -

the sound and lasting appeal scores do seem strange, but 8.9 is still a pretty good score considering none of us have played the actual game yet.

#38 Edited by Illmatic (1358 posts) -

IGN isn't a single person you know. It's composed of many different reviewers of different tastes, views, and opinions. What one reviewer may consider a 10 the other may consider a 9. You're obviously a battlefield enthusiast judging by the playtime you've put into the game but that just means you felt a much stronger liking for the game than the reviewer did. How is that wrong in any way?  He's simply doing his job, telling you how he felt about the game. I guarantee there are others who feel the exact opposite as you, thinking the praise this game is getting is unwarranted. And there are finally those who think its about right from what they've experienced. The general consensus is that the game is good. That should be enough for a fan. Those who were going to buy it before the review are still going to buy it. Bad Company 2's rep isn't tarnished by an 8.9.  This whole debacle isn't because IGN sucks as a review source, it's because of the 7-10 review scale that has existed since the 1-10 range was introduced and the amount of gamers out there who use reviews for entirely the wrong reasons. In this warped world, a 7 is terrible, an 8 is good, a 9 is amazing,  and a 10 is scoffed as overhyped.

#40 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3683 posts) -

First off let me start offf by saying that was a very well put together review. It focused on the strong while pointing out the weak. My problem is while BF games in general always look so fun and the online intense. However  as soon I actually start playing, I soon realize thats things are not the same. while yes it is possible to have intense awesome moments there will also be a lot of  time my team does not want to work together and  we get constally killed by tanks ect by a the other team(in the demo anyways). So I think I will still have to give this a rent first. See if it was just the crate gamemode i did not enjoy in the demo.

#41 Posted by regnits (39 posts) -

 I'm fine with the score it's the fact that two numbers should be 10. Sound and lasting appeal have to be 10 if MW2 had 10. Everyone in the gaming industry will not say that this is not fact.
 
I gave up on MW2 after 3 months as the MP did not live up to my hopes. I'm still playing BF2 so based on that fact MW2 10 for lasting appeal is false for me. The sound for BC2 is the best there is fact so how it was not 10 if MW2 was is false for me too.    For these facts and the person doing the review hates BC1 is a good reason to question the review score. 

 
But at the end of the day everyone if going to have a lot of fun with BC2 for months or years that is all that matters.

#42 Posted by Peacemaker (1104 posts) -

I made this point in the other locked thread but two different people reviewed BF and MW.  

#43 Posted by Gspoon (107 posts) -

I am starting to think that ANY thread with IGN reference in the title on the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Forum should be auto locked.  

This shit is getting silly between 3 threads about IGN and all of the MW2 vs BC2 crap. If you guys hate IGN so much just avoid their content. If you really disagree with the reviewer write him/her a email or get on the IGN forums and raise hell. I am just going to throw this out here, their is NO game that deserves a "Perfect 10 " nothing is perfect in the virtual world or the real one. If you enjoy a game that no one else does then congratulations your a human not a robot that only buys games with a 8-10 score.
 
BTW I don't pay attention to review scores because their like assholes everyone has one and no 2 are alike, )
#44 Posted by regnits (39 posts) -

The point I was making if MW2 got a high score for sound and lasting appeal then BC2 should be at least equal. Just these two scores make no sense compared to the last modern combat game. 
 
The rest of the review scores and review is fine for a non-Bad Company fan.

#45 Posted by Evolved (1 posts) -

A 9.0 for sound and lasting appeal is a bad score?  Wow, I guess I'm living in a different universe.  This is also ONE MAN'S OPINION guys.  Settle down.

  1. Erik Brudvig is an idiot, I can't stand it when he talks.
  2. The Bad Company squad is annoying? I would take B-company over those no-personality muscle dudes from MW2.
  3. Short campaign? Okay, 6 hours is shorter than I expected, but then why was his review 3/4 about singleplayer?
  4. Sound? You can ask any sound engineer for games, Frostbite's HDR audio is more advanced than MW2's canned sound effects based on proximity.
  5. Lasting appeal? I don't see how MW2 has a more of a lasting appeal over BC2.
 
Granted, this game is not perfect, but only suffers from the same reason it didn't get super good scores before: a sub-par campaign. I don't really like that rating system, the decimals make it seem too much like a formula, and not an opinion.
 
Oh, thanks to the mod who told me to shut up, then locked my thread. Real professional.
 

Alright, I got over it, thanks to this:
