Review Prediction

[ Edited ]

I have played PLASBR beta a ton, and I watched a ton of gameplay on youtube and have reached to conclusion of how this game will do.

 

This game will have a ton of mixed reviews. All of them ranging in the score range between 6.5-8.5 (maybe 9's)

Three major flaws I know the critics WILL hate. (maybe users too)

1. The arcade mode + story mode is crap. This is based off fact, and not opinion.

2. The AI is so bad, they are just dummies that stand there and attack every 5-10 seconds. 

3. Some characters have moves that are super overpowered. e.g: Kratos's LVL 3 (its possible to get 9 kills with that thing) 

 

I understand that this game is completely different than Smash bros, but that game is better in every way.

1. The story mode was pretty decent (not the greatest, but decent. The characters connected in some way)

2. The Ai gave a solid challenge, and put up a good, fair fight.

3.There were some overpowered characters, but not crazy like Kratos's lvl 3 (A giant sword that also shoots projectiles? Please)

 

However, I see that everything else will be great, because each character has sooo much detail.. BUT the scores will all depend on how harshly the critics will grade these 3 huge flaws. Some will not care that much (Ign, co optimuus, gamestrailer and youtube reviewers), while other reviewers like gamespot, will care, and put this game down.

 

I will still buy the game, because I don't care about the arcade and story mode. Others will. And I warn them. 

 

This is my review from what I have seen (pre release)

 

+Great party game

+Great tutorial

+Characters are polished and have a ton of detail

+Nice learning curve

+Confirmed future free dlc

 

- Terrible AI

-Lacluster story mode

-Not good for competative play because of overpowered moves

-Mediocre Menus (They could have done a much better job, its sooo plain)

 

Overall 8.3

You do realize that Superbot is committed to patching this game until it is acceptable balance wise, right?  So that can be taken off of your list of cons.

It hard to accurately predict because a lot of reviewers are completely bias.

I agree man, I feel like this game is going to get mediocre reviews, not that I care but it's still sad because some people tend to hold reviews in high regard.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

 

1.  Arcade mode fits this game well. A platforming arcade mode like brawls wouldn't make sense with the super system. Plus they even added original cutscenes and rivalries which is just above and beyond what they needed to do for a good arcade

2. How can you say that if you haven't even seen the hardest AI difficuly yet? ....cmon, that's pushing it. 

3. There aren't any OP moves or characters. Moves that are stronger are harder to get generally. Also, no it's not possible to get 9 kills with kratoses level 3. Although that would be awesome

4. Mediocre menus- WHAT? What other games have custimisible menu options. There's 20 different menu themes. Like....what? THat's the opposite of mediocre IMO

 

=D

nobody seems to get the story ;/

Spoiler
basically polygon man is like "god", when he says "your world is an illusion" its because the characters worlds dont actually exist. people are like "oh nathan drakes searching for treasure and than fighting cole randomly" because he was in his story, and still thinks he is, he thinks cole cmae into his world etc. its really hard to explain, but basically you notice how they dont freak out and go "what is this place?!" in the rival stage? thats because they still think they are in their world, they just see random people running through their world etc. they dont know whats really going on, that polygon man is controlling it all, its hard to explain but at least the story isnt the generic "they fell through a wormhole"
