Reasons to have him:

 

1.  Sony Santa Monica owns the character so it isn't  hard to get the rights to the IP, unlike other products (even other Sony IP's are hard to get, since you still have to go through their holder)

 

2.  It's cheaper to get Graves, a first party character from inhouse, than a 3rd party character, which allows them to give him away for free instead of charging for DLC.  They aren't going to give away Snake.

 

 

Reasons not to have him:

 

1.  Starhawk sold less than 200k games worldwide, which was the reason Lightbox, the studio that developed the game, didn't have its contract renewed with Sony and had to lay off a majority of its workers and now is going to try to focus on IOS games.

 

2.  To quote IGN's review of Starhawk and Graves, "...these characters suck..."  Basically every critic who reviewed this game said the characters were lame and 2 dimensional.

 

3.  The character design is bland and generic.  He looks like basically any other soldier we have seen a thousand times the last decade.  Doesn't look cool and has no charm at all.

 

4.  He is not an all-star.  His game was a flop, he was widely criticized as a character, most people don't know him and he caused the studio that created him to basically shutter its doors.

 

I'm not saying he won't be fun to play gameplay wise, but he is a absolutely horrible choice from a character standpoint.

 


Just thought you should know, ign also gave the game a 9.


Read the review, or watch the video review, they gave it a 9 for its multiplayer and their one complaint were the weak characters in the game... that is, to quote them again, "...these characters suck...," when referring to Graves.

 

As I said, the game could be fun if it is your thing, but, either/or, Graves is a weak and lame character.

dude, people are excited to have him here and play as him mostly because:

1. he reps for starhawk, and warhawk by proxy,

2. of his unique play style which would incorporate the build & battle system...

Play For Fun!

Exactly Tenk

 

Sony do that to all their games that's not GOW, Uncharted and LBP. Starhawk probably would've sold a million or more if it was a multiplatform game or MS/Nintendo game. Sometimes half of sony first party games should just go multiplat since they don't deserved them.

Yeah, it did get a 9. Funny how he didn't mention that. I guess he could be somewhat questionable but he obviously would have a unique moveset and being coupled with kat (who is awesome) is just great. And of course again it is FREE. I don't really undersand why any and every bit of news pertaining to this game is enveloped in negativity. I honestly feel bad for superbot at this point. People treat them like they are nonthing.


 

I wouldn't worry too much, man. I'm sure Superbot knew they were going to be dealing with their fair share of trolls. You just haveto expect that in this digital age we live in and not let it get to you.

I'll get him because he's black because I'm black too. I never played StarHawk cause I don't remember it being commercialized, besides he can make up for James Heller.

Why can't people just appreciate what they are getting on this forum.. They say: ''The roster is to small and therefore it's a bad game..'' Then they get FREE characters as dlc form POPULAR playstation ip's nd they are still whining... -.-'' I think all the whiners can dream on with Crash, Wander or what ever the duck they want so bad.. They aren't in the game and they won't be.. Just get over it...

 

You probably haven't played Starhawk.. And there are fans that want him to, so the people on this forum are being selfish..

I'm quoting this from RedWaltz someone with the blue squirl avatar: ''4.  He is not an all-star.  His game was a flop, he was widely criticized as a character, most people don't know him and he caused the studio that created him to basically shutter its doors.''

 

So your basicly saying that Nariko shouldn't be in either Smiley Wink Just get over it.

While there are more deserving characters, yes, Emmett will have been a piece of cake to get the rights for since Santa Monica owns him and they're assisting in making the game. In fact i'd wager that he was probably intended to be in the initial roster but due to time constraints they had to push him back. The fact he's free should make any complaint null and void. If we had to pay for him i could maybe understand but he's free, and he was easy to implement, so whats the problem? More DLC will come, hopefully the highly requested characters, but we'll have to pay, so enjoy the free DLC while you can, no matter who it is.
