PROTOTYPE IGN REVIEW IS UP.....Should you care?
I understand...a review is an opinion of one person....but please have some of the facts in there!
So ign has now reviewed prototype, a game I have been waiting for in great anticipation, and they gave it a 7.5. Thats ok with me, 7.5 is not bad. My problem is that ign along with other professional gaming sites have decided that the faults of a game are more of the meat in their reviews than what it does right. This is an issue because good games become shunned due to the fact that we the gamers seem to follow in majority on reviews about 80% of the time. This is why good games that score low get no sequels or support. I have not played the game yet so I am handicapped in my defense but is so hard to state the fun facts of the game? Erik Brudvig usually does a great job on his reviews but this time he continually states how the graphics hurt the game....BUT WHAT ABOUT THE GAMEPLAY?? He gave the game an 8 for gameplay....which is pretty damn good. I think the problem is that reviews now seem so biased or overtly opinionated that they dont carry much weight anymore, so if they trully are a pro site....give me pro facts. He doesnt mention how the game runs at 60 fps with out any slowdowns, but does mention that it has graphics problems in the city itself. Come on....a sandbox game with subpar graphics is litterally almost all of them. I want to know about how it plays, since he obviously scored gameplay high enough to validate the core game.
