"The guy who reviews Fable 2 on gamespot needs to be shot. "Making money is way too easy" wtf? is that actually a valid reason? From what ive heard its actually hard to earn money in that game."
Why wouldn't that be a valid reason to criticize the game? I'm not going to pretend I actually played the game like all the asshats in this thread but if I was able to say make a million gold in an hour allowing me to then buy every good weapon in the game, that would be a problem, don't you think? Or maybe, just maybe, you should actually read the review and see why he says that.

What the fuck is wrong with a 8.5? Really? I don't fucking understand people. Someone says a game is great and people bitch and moan. Look at all the scores you posted in the OP, a lot of those in the same ballpark as GameSpot's score. You know what, now I really hope that Giant Bomb gives it 4 stars. So, I can see what your reaction is then."
my reaction? lol, im getting the game regardless.
 its system wars rule that "if a game doesnt get AAA (9, 9.5) from gamespot then its a "Flop". its not something you take seriously (if you do youre a sad sad person) but its a way to taunt fanboys. and they used to have bets before they banned it.

im in there right now, every one pretty much agrees the game is great and deserves a great score, even the die hard cows are like "FLOP!!! J/k good score." People dont care about the GS reviews that much anymore.

This is because many gamers let the reviewers dictate the experience they'll have with the reviewed game.

It isnt a valid reason for fable 2, everyone who has been keeping up with at least a little bit of fable 2 over the past year should know that it has been stated that you can be either really really rich or really really famous. I have read the review and to me it seems like he just farmed gold for about an hour then listed it as a valid complaint. wtf do you think will happen if you farm for gold and buy a shop early on in the game?

That's my problem with this. If you know that you are going to enjoy the game, then why do you even care about what GameSpot says?

I really dont care what the review thinks about the game, but a person getting paid to review games, then doing a shitty job at it? it just makes me angry at the retards they have over at gamespot.

What's so shitty about the GameSpot review?

No one should care about reviews for a game ever, if you've been following it for a while and looked into enough of it yourself to know 100% you are going to get the game anyway...and what's wrong with the gamespot review, is that gamespot has lost all credibility in giving out reviews for pretty much everything, so it doesn't matter what the score, whether it was a 10, or a 7, they aren't credible at all, same with Xbox specific mags/sites , because they are all biased to the game on their platform. I could of cared a less whether it got all 9s and higher or all mid 8s though, I've made my mind on picking it up and that isn't changing it.

#59 Posted by daniel_beck_90 (3159 posts) -

Yeah , scores are pretty high

#60 Posted by Kaido (249 posts) -

To retort to the whole 'SCORES ARE INDICATIVE OF A GAME' argument, I'd have to say that they're usually pretty comprehensive and are much faster than reading a lovingly produced text review for Semi-Literate forum goons such as myself (Kind of why I can digest Giant Bomb reviews, actually).

I'm not saying a game can't be just groovy if it's allotted a 7.3, but it must have some shortcomings. In which case, pending further investigation, someone who's been holding out to purchase the game might want to read the whole text review to see if they like it. Oh boy, that sounded incredibly biased right there.

Also, why all the hate?

#61 Posted by SolemnOaf (535 posts) -

Seeing as how my favorite games this generation seem to average around a 60-70 metacritic rating, and the games in my collection I most dislike are all rated 90+, seeing these reviews are actually giving me second thoughts about whether or not to get this game tommorow.  Far Cry 2 looks pretty damn tempting, that isn't helping either.

Gamespot gave it an 8.5? Jesus.. that site is messed up...

Most people only have a limited amount of money to spend on games, and want to get the most out of their money. Reviews have their place, they shouldn't be the be all and end all, but they have their place. Scores are largely pointless though, to get a feel for whether you as an individual will find this game rewarding, you need to know plenty about the game to see if it suits your tastes. A score doesn't tell you this. A full review does.

A score is the summary of the review. Of course it is stupid to see only the score and base your whole idea of the game on that.

Well, I give the first 6 hours of the game a 99 out of 100. One point subtracted because of the stupid chest you have to visit www.fable2.com to open. Wow, talk about taking you out of the world. The rest of the game is pretty sweet though. Graphics, story, combat, My faithful dog, Dex, and even the job mini-games are kinda fun.

#69 Posted by TomA (2531 posts) -

I've been playing the game for about 30 min i love so far,i'm getting the guys warrants.

#70 Edited by skou (1 posts) -

I did the review for Xboxlfe.dk / Xboxlife.com, and so far I have played the game for 25+ hours - it really kicks ass!

Lionhead really managed to pull this one off. Oh, and if you play it, don't forget to check out the Castle :-)

Are the things about the Co-op really true???

Is it just that you CANNOT bring in your own Character from your Game into your Freinds Game??

Man I was so looking forward to it.....ah well

The fact that you cannot take your character into a friends game has been known since they first announced co-op for the game.
