Your Impressions

16 replies 239 views Edited Oct 31, 2012

I got on IGN last night to check out the AC: Liberation and Ragnarok Odyssey reviews, needless to say I was disappointed.  Both reviews were much lower than I had expected.  Just wanted to get some impressions of the games from all of you, after all IGN has been overly critical of most Vita games so far (at least in my opinion)  

 

Also is there another good source for game reviews out there?  My opinions on games are not lining up with IGNs as much as they once did and I think its time for me to look somewhere else.

I think they got ACIII:L about right.

They were overly harsh on Ragnarok. Its not a world burner and it is repetitive grinding for gear but everyone knows that going in. Also with the lack of RPGs on the system its got a fairly large online player base atm. I would think it deserved something closer to 7/10

I think the AC3: L review was fair. But the RO was absolutely stupid, the reviewer clearly has no idea of how the monster hunting genre works. Ironically, the same site gave 7+ to titles like Gods Eater Burst and Monster Hunters. Games that, just like RO, aren't true RPGs and lack plot / leveling up~.

Here is a tip stop going to IGN for reviews. I mean any what so ever, a huge majority of their staff are literally complete idiots.

 

IGN:
Silent Hill Book of Memories: 6.0/10
Resistance Burning Skies: 5.5/10
Ragnarok Odyssey: 5.0/10

Fifa 13: 4/10

Destructoid:
Ragnarok Odyssey: 9/10
Silent Hill Book of Memories: 6.5/10
Resistance Burning Skies: 2/10

Fifa 13: No review, which it deserved for the Vita since it was just last years Fifa Soccer with new colors.

Good to know RO is not as bad as IGN says.  Now I just have to find a place to buy it.  Vita games can be hard to find.

That's assuming he's an American customer; Amazon doesn't ship videogames to several countries and Gamestop charges astronomic prices for shipping overseas~.

Im in the US.  Made a few calls but none of the stores in my area have it.  Downloading it right now.  Iv never downloaded a game before, I like havening a physical copy, but I thought I should at least try it before I decided I don't like it.
