    See, another shining example. I loved ROTR too, but others seem to think it's just mheh. Was possibly my most enjoyable experience this generation, until I played Quantum break, which again is regarded as mheh.

    I am just trying to get into Witcher 3, and as someone new to RPG's as whole, I find it overwhelming at times, even though it's good, but right now, Im not having anywhere near as much fun as with ROTR or Quantum Break.

    Who would have thought, we can all have individual opinions on these games and all not be wrong about that.:rolleyes:

    "Mate, the very definition of a review is to evaluate whether something is good or not."

    You missed my point, which is that Martin can call it worst game ever and tag it with various derogatory comments, but that in itself won't define if you enjoy game or not. Only your experience will define it as a good or bad game...for you at least. So why get caught up the opinion of some person who you don't know from Bob the Builder. Who cares what Martin thinks?

    I just don't get people's mentality with reviews period.

    People blamed score system, but reality is that it's people reading reviews that are issue. They just can't seem to think for themselves.

    In modern era with text reviews, video reviews, youtube footage of gameplay etc etc, it's so easy to see for yourself whether you think a game is for you or not. Until you play it, you can't say for sure either way, but it's generally enough to get an idea based on own tastes.

    Id happily abandon all scoring systems in reviews. Im more interested in their thoughts and video footage anyway.

    I just posted one review criticising it for much of what this reviewer has.

    Either way, it's the reviewers opinion and feelings on the game, and you are still relying on other's opinion to decide whether this is true or not based on their opinions.

    Why?

    He felt this, someone else did too, but then others didn't feel was an issue.

    Is it an issue for you? If so, don't buy it. If you think you might enjoy it regardless, buy anyway and find out yourself if it is true or not.

    End of day, if EG reviewer said it was worst game he'd ever played, but you play it and enjoyed it, so what?

    It is just a review. scores or even word's of any reviewer don't define whether a game is good or now. Stop obsessing about those things and play it and decide whether you enjoy it or not.

    Metro review of game seems quite good, giving pros and cons, and actually backing up EG in many ways, but still remaining positive overall.

    The latest PS4 exclusive may have some of the most high-tech visuals ever seen but does it have the gameplay to match?

    So there we were, crouching down in the long grass, considering how best to take on a group of bandits. There were some mechanical horses a little way over, that we could hack into, but we knew they were better used for transport than attack. We lined up a headshot on a bandit, with our bow and arrow, but before we had a chance to fire the sound of explosions and gunfire boomed from across the mesa.

    A giant metal, rocket-launching, Tyrannosaurs Rex had wandered onto the scene, apparently irritated by the bandits’ presence. Remembering a previous encounter, where we’d forced two robot tigers to fight each other, we hacked the horse anyway and sent it off into the melee. A few minutes later a badly injured Tyrannosaurs Rex was all that was left, and after a few armour-piercing arrows to his exposed weak spots we set about looting the corpses of all concerned. Welcome to Horizon Zero Dawn.

    As you’d expect from the makers of Killzone, this is a stunning-looking game. Perhaps the most graphically accomplished of the generation. Not only that but the state-of-the-art visuals are paired with equally impressive art design, that we’ve been in love with ever since the first concept art leaked out years ago. What we were less certain of though, was that the gameplay would be anywhere close to the same standards. But thankfully it more than holds its own.



    Horizon Zero Dawn is set on a post-apocalyptic Earth where mankind has been reduced to a medieval, or lower, state of technology and mechanical animals roam the Earth. But although the backstory for what is going on is quite clever, and not as straightforward as you first assume, for the majority of the game you’re just dealing with uninteresting tribal politics, typically workmanlike video game dialogue, and equally generic video game characters.

    That includes heroine Aloy, who is essentially just a bog-standard chosen one, who exhibits no real personality except during the occasional BioWare style moral decisions. Some of the details of the plot, such as the matriarchal society of Aloy’s tribe, are nicely unusual but overall the storytelling is one of Horizon’s weaker elements. But that’s fine, because as an open world game you make your own stories and the one in our opening paragraph is just one of an infinite array of unique encounters.

    The structure of the game though is less extraordinary, and follows the Ubisoft formula almost to the letter. The radio towers you climb to fill your map with icons are giant robotic giraffes (actually one of our favourite sub-quests) and the collectables are audio logs from before the apocalypse, but the parallels with games like Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry are obvious.

    The gameplay mechanics are more interesting than either game has ever been though, with enjoyably straightforward platforming and stealth-based combat. Although later in the game you can use guns dropped by robots, Aloy’s weapons are a spear for close-up combat, a variety of bows, and specialist equipment such as a slingshot, tripwires, and a rope gun that can tether enemies to the ground.

    Games review: Horizon Zero Dawn has the best graphics ever
    Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4) – did we mention it was pretty?
    A bow and arrow is fine against the smaller robots – as long as you get them in the eye or one of the other weak points revealed by the detective vision style accessory that kick-starts the game’s plot. Others have to be dealt with much more cautiously, as you lay traps for them, lure them away with whistles or thrown rocks, or set other robots against them (you can only ‘override’ the simpler ones, unless you complete one of a number of particularly hard sub-quests into underground lairs).

    Things get more complicated the bigger and more powerful the robots get, as elemental weaknesses are introduced and you have to acquire weapons which can take advantage of them. Despite this, many will argue that the stealth and combat is fundamentally too simplistic, and they do have a point. Eventually you begin to realise that it’s often best to just avoid the robots rather than getting into a fight, encouraging you to circumvent most of the gameplay.

    The artificial intelligence is quite simplistic, with everyone (and thing) suffering from the usual goldfish-like memory spans of most stealth games. Horizon is certainly not the deepest action role-player around, and it also pales next to more dedicated stealth game such as Metal Gear Solid V – which in some ways it quite closely resembles. The movement and aiming system is great though, and the way the robots interact with you and the rest of the world is unlike any other modern game.

    Whether it’s swimming just under the water to avoid the gaze of giant mechanical birds or laying freeze traps for dinosaur-like creatures that spit fire like the bugs from Starship Troopers, the game constantly generates memorable set pieces without even trying. In fact, the more scripted scenarios often pale in comparison to the ones you just stumble upon and create yourselves.



    The role-playing aspects are as straightforward as the rest of the game, with a limited, very linear, set of skill trees and a trading system primarily based around the components you loot from robots. If you want to be boring about things you can farm these, and experience points, to become very powerful, very quickly. Although this is mitigated to a degree by some side-quests having quite a high experience level requirement.

    What’s meant to further lessen the impact of the game’s faults is the (robotic) elephant in the room: the fact that Horizon may well be the most graphically impressive game of the entire generation. Played on a PS4 Pro and 4K television it’s absolutely staggering, with the lighting and level of detail at times seeming almost impossibly good. The game’s still gorgeous on a normal PlayStation 4 though, aided by the wonderful Zoid-like creature designs.

    It has taken a long time for Sony, and the other publishers, to get into gear this generation, but with releases like this we finally begin to see games that do real justice to the current hardware. The gameplay design is still rooted firmly in the previous generation, but the best parts of Horizon seem as if they’d be impossible on the PlayStation 3. The end result is a game that can astound you in terms of both graphics and gameplay, in what will hopefully be a new dawn for current gen gaming in general.

    Horizon Zero Dawn
    In Short: State-of-the-art visuals help create one of gaming’s most entertaining open worlds, even if the gameplay doesn’t quite reach the same standards.

    Pros: Superb graphics and art design, and a huge, impressively interactive, open world environment. Highly enjoyable combat and stealth, with an interesting array of weapons.

    Cons: Repetition is an issue, and resource farming can be abused. The backstory is interesting but the storytelling is workmanlike.

    Score: 8/10

    "When was the last time you played a truly original AAA title? Most games are derivative of others. It's the implementation of these mechanics that should stand out.

    And, according to other reviewers, this game is nothing short of spectacular in that regard. The same goes for the story and the side quests".

    Well, then you have to wonder why this game has been highlighted specifically for being lacking imagination? Maybe the reviewer felt this was a particularly bad example of this and the reviewer decided it stood out for him to point it was worthy of highlighting.

    Either way, you're still focused on what you feel this game deserves to be scored at, despite never having played it. Even if this was the sole bad review, it's just an opinion, that's all a review is, get over it.

    Well, that's the point I guess. They feel it lacks it's own identity, and is nothing but a game that relies heavily on work of others. That in itself says a lot about the game, if you view it that way.

    Yes, there was only one 5/10, plus couple 7/10, so it's not like EVERYONE thinks this is amazing.

    And I really wouldn't use IGN or Gamespot when trying to establish credibility for quality. They both are kinda renowned for getting aboard the hype train anyway.

    What's USgamer's affiliation with Eurogamer got to do with score? Did they use same reviewer, or are you suggesting this is an "anti Sony policy?"

    Far more likely for a site to have been influenced to give positive scores than negative, as no site wants to end up with being blacklisted by Sony or big publishers etc.

    "Exactly! It's really puzzling that people need to be told what they should and shouldn't buy. FFS most of us are adults here aren't we?"

    Indeed, it's baffling.

    If I was a sheeple incapable of independent thought, I'd have so many games that I simply don't play as I don't like them. If I bought Drak Souls for example, I would simply feel i had wasted £40, but according to others it's greatest game ever.

    I know more or less what games I like and don't like, and reviews simply give me further information about a game that i might be interested in.

    Too many insecure fanboys in the world.

    Indeed, Quantum break was hardly glowing in terms of it's reviews, and for first 15 minutes, I kinda saw why, but I ended up loving it. Infamous was regarded as a series that was almost great, but not quite, but I enjoyed it far more than many more open world games.

    I just like stupidly OP superhero games it seems.

    Frankly, Guerilla seem incapable of actually being truly innovative, but they are technically gifted and produce games that are good, but often completely derivative.

    Yet I still enjoyed the MP aspects of KZ games.

    Don't be silly, everyone is entitled to a different opinion.

    Id rather see a few critical reviews out there and then make my own choice when balanced alongside the positive ones, as this industry has been guilty of riding the hype train for far too long.

    How often do we see glowing reviews and then later on the issues with the games start to rise as people actually play it and then we complain that they didn't cover these points?

    I am far more inclined to trust a review that raises some issues, than sings it's praises from rooftops.

    There's also a couple of 5/10 on metacritic from reviewers who were more damning.

    Play the game and make your own decision, not rant about someone not agreeing with your decision for a score on a game that you haven't even played yet.

    well, I still am not really seeing reason to upgrade my 3570k (still have no issues with hitting 60fps in games, but if Ryzen really shakes things up, as the hype suggests, then it will be great for those who wish to do so.

    Here's hoping AMD finally are competitive again in both CPU and GPU industry, as we will all benefit which side we end up on.

    I have to admit, I am fed up of Intel changing sockets, so if AMD can stick to one for a while, when I do look at upgrading, then i'll definitely consider their products if they competitive and well priced.

    " This article only measures the "extreme" setting and resolutions I am not interested in because I play on a TV"

    What's playing on TV got to do with not using extreme settings?

    Again, dedicated gpu benchmarking sites are what you require. Or if nvidia does it's performance articles for a game, they can't be beaten.

    This is not the site you're looking for I'm afraid, if you expecting a full breakdown of settings and their impact. There's other sites that give more details like that, and they're dedicated pc gaming sites usually.

    They've given you in the article and videos what extra features can be found in extreme settings.

    " And it still doesn't help me with my Zelda decision."

    Zelda isn't even out yet and they haven't done that article, so calm your self.

    " Sorry for asking but this is a pet peeve of mine and I have to know. Why do you 'lol' your own sentence? Are you actually laughing out loud after writing it or what is it supposed to tell me? Is it a smiley substitute?"

    No, it's me laughing at the fact, DF don't give a shit ultimately. They are simply maximising hits for site by getting an article out as quickly as possible while game is relevant still.

    My pet peeve? Whingeing people, who will complain about siten and articles, instead of simply finding another site

    Jesus Christ.

    There's a reason some games can hit 60fps and some can't on consoles.

    Not every game is demanding in same way.

    Some are being held back by the gpu, and some by the cpu.

    This game...probably the gpu, as on pc at modern i3 is more than is capable of hitting over 120fps with this game.

    Now this isn't the case in all games and you might struggle to hit 60fps with same cpu in some games.

    Just because you think certain games are pretty and can hit 60fps doesn't mean it's possible to do so in all games

    Yes, but up until now, developers haven't really had choice to support older titles on new hardware, and even now it still requires a patch for support.

    I'm a pc gamer and consider it a great benefit, but as long as developers don't throw all their support into remasters, then I see no harm in them doing some remasters along way.

    I don't see how you can justify someone building a pc to play old games alone. The extra it would cost to expand that build to an actually capable machine for AAA games wouldn't be that much more and would be infinitely more worth it.

    But if someone can pick up second hand components and fancies picking up some utter bargains then I couldn't argue with that logic

    @bad09

    I have to agree, that building a PC is a little daunting, although not monumentally so if you use internet for research purposes.

    I started with zero knowledge and was able to build my own from scratch. There's also sites with prebuilds and you can get idea of the most suitable combination of components at varying expense tiers etc, and some will even advise you on if you need more powerful psu etc with certain components, so if you are inclined to do so, you can get ample information in pre-assembling it, and then putting it together is fairly simple these days, and like a bloomin expensive lego kit or something.

    It all depends on whether you have the temperament for a project and learning some new things.

    Once they are assembled, there's little that is beyond average joe when it comes to gaming. If it is beyond them, it's optional and not a requirement for basic gaming.

    @Hellotherenow

    So just to be clear...Konami and more specifically Kojima are only developer in industry who have the required talent to create an open world 60fps game ? (Let's not include the vita port for obvious reason).

    Or are we to propose, and to me this is far more logical, that MGS V was a game engine designed with 60fps in mind and that anything that got in way of that was pared back.? Now other game engine such as JC3 target 30fps on consoles , knowing the cpu and gpu limitations and aim for more from the visuals (this isn't to discredit metal gear visually, it's good looking game, but is not really open in reality, with lots of sections and loading of missions in certain areas).JC3 is far more open than MGS V therefore more cpu draw calls, has more physics and more alpha transparency effects being used with explosions and subsequently more cpu demand.

    If you think even naughty dog could pull jc3 off at 60fps , you're deluded.

    It requires a powerful cpu on pc to achieve 60fps in the game.

    Whereas MGSV can be played on a relatively low end cpu at 60fps.with a pentium G3258.

    Wonder what the connection is????

    "What other argument?"

    CrashZzap and his "trolling" of consoles.

    "But you have to build it."

    No, you dont have to build it. You can buy pre made, if you so desire. Plenty available pre made.

    "You have to diagnose issues a lot more frequently, and you are more prone to such than with a console."

    Do you? When did you last own a PC? Cause number of issues I've had in last year with PC gaming? You guessed it zero.

    I had few in early days of PC gaming, but mainly this revolved around me faffing about with overclocks and mods etc

    "You cannot access games directly after turning it on (some people can, but it isn't a simple set up) "

    Steam Big Picture game mode says hello.

    "but it isn't a simple set up) and isn't a 1080 and i7 about a grand combined?"

    What's your point? That was simply an example of how you can fit vast amounts of compute power in small form factor these days with PC gaming, not a requirement.

    Secondly, you never discussed cost in the quote I used, and i was addressing your comment regarding PC gaming being so hard to enjoy with TV from your couch.

    If cost is an issue, you can go much more conservative with your components and choose an even smaller form factor.

    "It is not easy or - most importantly to most console gamers - cheap."

    A) I was a console gamer, and it was easy to me, and others who have swapped over and i built my own (Google is your friend) and B) it's as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be.

    Will it initially cost you more than an equivalent performing PC, most likely, but I pay no online fees, get games cheaper and more importantly for me, i have choice about things like performance being prioritised over visual effects

    "But does it not bother PC owners that they can't comfortably enjoy lounge gaming? I know there are ways around it, but popping a rig under you TV in the front room is not easy for lots of people, not nearly as easy as popping a cheaper, out of the box, very decent option anyway"

    I'm not getting involved in your argument with other poster, but it really is easily possible these days. You can build a pc that is not that much bigger than original xb1 these days that will house a 1080 and an i7.

    You can easily game from lounge as pc gamer,

    Gotta agree. Playing the game on pc one of first things I did was turn down God rays to lower level to allow for stable frame rates. They murder gpu on higher settings and were only really noticeable at brief moments anyway.

    Here if they sacrificed that or draw distance, they could have finally given ps4 owners should stable preformance

    Steam is always extortionate.

    Windows store and origin too.

    Only time to buy off any of them is in sales

  • More than three years after launch, GTA5 is back top of the charts

    Why wouldn't they want to increase that ecosystem though? They attempted it through online PC games from development studios at one point. Planetside was obviously biggest example.

    They also did so recently with the streaming service for it's ps3 games etc.

    They can obviously choose not to do so, and hold out for PC gamers to crack and buy a ps4. That's their prerogative.

  • Nine years later, one feature in GTA4 has never been bettered - here's its story

    I know GTA stories are kinda a parody of modern culture and everything that comes with it, but I find the stories and characters to be little too childish and pathetic to relate to, as everything is still told in a semi serious manner.

    At Least with Saints Row it's so absurd, it's very tongue in cheek in nature and I don't feel appalled at what Im watching.
