    Certainly an odd review but the score is still pretty damning

    Same score they gave RE6 :lol: and that WAS poo.
    Just strange no mention of atmosphere. Audio. Or much about graphics. Considering it's survival horror and not another COD clone I can't read it seriously.

    I think it'll average 6/7

    Really? RE6 isn't that bad, it's certainly an above average game.

    I don't agree. I thinks it's really quite bad, and way below average.

    Gamespot did give Skyward Sword 7.5. Also, the reviewer does sound like a turd.

    Gamespot do have a history of trying to be 'alternative' with their reviews. The fact this is so low, and the first review available, may suggest to a more cynical person, a very clever hit generator.

    It's the second review, ONM gave it 92 - but the gave red steel 91

    So two reviews we can't count on then? :D

    Glad I didn't order the Zombie U bundle but still I hoped it would get good reviews so I could pick it up on the 30th. Maybe it will get better reviews but I can't see it being anything other than average.

    Yeah, I agree, the part about the cricket bat does seem a little worrying, seems to me like the guy did't grasp the whole 'survival horror' concept - the fact he was getting chased by a huge pack of zombies kinda backs this up. How annoying though, one amazing review and one shitty one, typical.

    That's why I am firmly in the 6/7 bracket. If it is all 4s I'll be gutted :(

    the review is pretty barebones. is it a transcript instead?

    Am I being punk'd? None of those links work, and no one is mentioning the actual review. Anyone got a real link?

    Latest Edge has popping in through the post.

    ZombiU? 7/10.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    They all worked earlier, probably taken down due to breaking the embargo.
    The review was barebones as they come.

    "A title that infuse impulse buyers, early adopters and Nintendo diehards with relief and appreciation of the novel gameplay with Wii U can and will continue to provide".

    Main criticism not with controls but with the story. Seems to take a turn towards fantasy towards the end after spending most of the game grounded in reality. Also some unnecessary treasure hunts you're forced to do.

    Thanks for that mate. Feel a lot better about my purchase now!

    I see they rated SMBU and Nintendoland pretty much as expected.

    Yeah, it's looking pretty positive overall. Defo won't be the disaster that some people wanted it to be. Not by a long shot.

    Actually found the video review on gamespot... The guy reviewing it really is a miserable idiot ain't he? Constantly contradicting himself.

    Here's the link to the Video review

    Oh and a 7/10 from edge looks very promising.

    I'd say that gamespot review will be the worst of all for ZombieU.

    Heard the story can be a little disjointed with plot characters treating a new survivor as an old buddy but I can give or take with that. Surprised the review mentioned barely anything about the scanning systems.

    I'd love to see a Eternal Darkness esque game for the WiiU as well as Suda 51's next No More Hero's game!

    7/10 from Edge is like a 10/10 from IGN.

    Also, check out his review history

    Almost all fighting games, and mostly 7.0-8.0 or an odd 5.5. No range in his scores and a 7.5 for silent hill downpour ffs. No credibility really.

    I watched the Maxwell McGee review and all the negativity was hypocritical to what the game is all about.

    Must dash off to the Big Top.

    I've noticed the ZombiU pack popping up on Amazon a couple of times today, saying that you can pre-order it for release day. I guess a few people are getting cold feet. They don't hang around long when they pop up, but it's worth a look every now and then if you're desperate for one.

    Metroid Prime is ten years old today, not tomorrow. Reggie Fils-Amie is the worst president ever.

    Reviewed as an FPS rather than a survival horror though. Biggest issue for the reviewer is a lack of ammo!

    Zombi U shooty pew pew fail.
    So the biggest issue was it's a proper horror survival game?
    Basically, yeah. The guy just ran in fighting everything and complained it didn't work!
    I'd be surprised if he actually survived longer than 20 minutes.
