What is with PS3 fanboys posting non-deals in the Deals forum...:roll:

Metacritic average is 63... sounds like a winner... for me to poop on.

FWIW- I'm far from a PS3 fanboy, and I really liked this game.

Well there is only 17 votes on that game from users on Metacritic. And only 3 of them are dragging that score down (one is a zero LOL) while the rest are 8 and 9. Go to Gamespot and you will see the user review score 8.2 from 89 users. Or even Amazon has over 4 stars(out of a possible five) from 9 reviewers. I would think that gamespot would be the most reliable since it has over 89 users commenting on the game. Like I said before I thought flower was very mediorcre and Afrika (with flaws: long loading time and no voice narrative at all) was a great game. We just have different tastes in games. I totally think this game is a great purchase especially around $30.


This. Some absolutley terrible reviews + some reviews saying it's excellent = niche title, not bad title.

I enjoy this title a lot but as it has been stated it is a niche title. The game is fine, but the style of gameplay is not for everyone.

So I received this game today and it came in a generic black box, not the official PS3 clear box. Is that normal?

Sounds like it's a real winner.
IGN gave it a 3.5.


They also gave God Hand a 3 which means their reviews don't matter.

I bought this game from this post and have been playing a bit. It's actually not bad. It's a nature game so no head shots and decapitation on the animals. Nor can you run them over with your Suzuki. It's a very calm type game and fairly relaxing. If I have to give it a rating between 1-10, it'd be a 7. There are some framerate issues and the rediculous 387mb save file that takes over a minute to load/save. Oh and Gamestop sucks for shipping me the game in a generic case. Now I know when they guarrantee a box, it doesn't mean it's official box. They can just give you any old box. Gamestop is a 3, not this game.

Shhh. Blasphemy. Haven't you heard, we're not allowed to like games that don't fit generic stereotypes that the professional reviewers love.
