For anyone that has Sonic Unleashed my question is this: is it really as bad as the Gamespot review ("There is no fun to be had") suggests?
3.5 on Gamespot -- really that bad?
I played a little on the Wii. It's not bad, but it's not good. The normal Sonic parts are fun, but the Werehog are so boring... the only thing that compels you to finish them is thinking "maybe next stage I'll be able to play with regular Sonic again". It's not 3.5 material, but it's not anything special. I don't recomend it.
i would like to commend the one and only sole true sonic fan who is a developer at sega who decided to build the daytime parts, because that shit (although still a bit mediocre) is awesome and a step in the right direction. all the other assholes at sega who made the piss pore attempt at a sonic "teen wolf"/god of war game and these ridiculous suck ass cut scenes need to be fired. they are probably the same dudes who have ruined my childhood memories of sonic like 8 fucking times now.
"I don't think its THAT bad. Lately GS has been very harsh on rating games lately they gave good games pretty low scores. I don't trust them anymore."eh, i like it the way they've been, its like they're FINALLY using the 1 to 10 scale accordingly. for so long it really seemed like a 5 to 10 scale, and only the absolutely WORSE games got under 5. now they finally rating games the right way. if a game really does suck then it deserves a bad score. i'm glad theyre doing this.
"This is why GB has a 5 star rating instead. Because if GB reviewed it it probably would be a 2 or 3 star game. Now a 3.4 converted to stars = 2 stars, which I wouldn't be surprised. The game overall is bad, the number you put next to it means nothing."But from that example, with the points directly scaling to stars, it really makes no difference.
Gamespot was the only one bitching so much about the game so far. It is ridiculous, how could this game have a worst score than Sonic the Hedgehog (PS3, X360) on GS and yet have a way higher metascore?! WTF VanOrd? They are damaging the metascore/gamerankings average, it is a 6.5 or a 7.0, not a 3.5.
