Just got my copy of Game Informer, and they gave a 6.75 out of 10. For some reason this doesn't concern me to much, and won't stop me from buying the game anyway. I can already tell that this game is going to be completely based on the opinion of the player. None of the major reviewers are going to be very kind to it because they are too focused on every game having LA Noire style graphics and a massive online community.
I think that AMR is a game very much akin to the original, and still focuses on its predecessors' main concerns. It made up for shaky gameplay and limited graphics with atmosphere and an unusual story. AMR seems to be working in the same mold, using the gameplay as a means of allowing you to experience the atmosphere and story without detracting from it.
A lot of new games that get high ratings now are the ones that I feel have moved away from storyteling prowess and begun to use graphical realism as a crutch. AMR is one of those games that you cant rely on the big reviewers to judge fairly. Maybe it will be great maybe it wont, but its going to be up to the player to make that decision. Not the reviewers who seem to have forgotten what made games so popular in the first place: a sheer sense of fun and discovery.
