SSM could counter this by releasing a very limiting MP demo, at least that's what I think, along with a few others on here. Ascension simply doesn't deserve this.
There's nothing to counter. SSM doesn't care about these reviews, they know the hard work and committment that they put into this and that the game is for us, the players/fans. They're gearing for release day next Tuesday, not worrying about what these drones think.
my main concern is the fact that these people play like the game for a day possibly even 2 days on there own or on a close MP experience then they are supposed to give a review of game.....like they know the actual game like the back of there hand........ none of the videos ive seen that the games journos have made have shown anything that decent in my opinion because ...well...they seem to simply suck at the mutiplayer and just mash buttons.....yet they then mark down the game because of it....so the question shoudnt be about the game but maybe more about whos actualy playing it.
watched one review where they said the attack system of MP wasnt as diverse as the single player yet not once mentioned the fact that each weapon has special attacks that are asscociated with them . makes me wonder how much they actualy know about a game they review.......
Also, reviews are pointless for us people (fans of the series), most have already bought the game. Reviews are meant to help inform a buyer of a product before purchase, so they can make an educated decision on whether or not they should purchase the item. Everyone on this forum is pumped for the game, we should careless about a review, it's not going to sway our decision. If anyone here has pre-ordered the game then backs out because of a bad review then they need to seek medical help, because something is mentally wrong with them. We know the game, we know what we expect, no need for us to care about a review.
I'll once again use Tomb Raider as a reference because it came out this week. MP got bad reviews, it's often called the "weak point" of the game. I bought it on release day Tuesday, played it all three days after I got off work and I've yet to even start the SP cause I'm addicited to the MP. Stayed up till 3AM then got up for work at 7AM Wednesday night, and again last night (yes, I'm dragging here at work today). Why did I do that? Cause it's fun and I've met some cool people on there and everytime I say "OK, just one more game", I end up saying that 15 times cause I can't put it down. If I had listened to the reviews of Tomb Raider MP, I would have never even tried it...
This is how I feel, if I am playing the game and I find it good than that is all that matters! Some reviews have said they don't like the fix camra setting. I have never been bother by this. It doesn't disturb my enjoyment. CVG gave it a 7.5 which I just stopped reading. I didn't play much of the multiplayer, but I did find it enjoyable. They really can't call it a bust because it hasn't really been out yet to make that determination! A few guys playing in a room doesn't count!
Wow, not one period. Not one.
