got mayo?™ says:
If you don't like CoD Mp, don't bother getting it even at $1. That is pretty much all Declassified is and all it is decent at.

I'm not listening to users, I'm listening to actual reviewers.

Burning Skies got a 60, I gave it an 80. Say Declassified is bumped up 20 more, it's still a 49 even with a 20 point bump, which is still pretty crap.

You're comparing two games with a 31 point difference. Yeah.......

That's what she said.

Probably at $10 - 15 I'd do it.

Today was my first day on metacritic but that is because 99% of the games I play are RPGs. Pro reviews for RPGs are utterly useless.

Trust me it's okay if you don't want the game I was just surprised that most of you wouldn't give it a shot at a lower price point if you love FPS. Even Mayo said it was alright last night and he is far from a Sonymite or Vita lover.

I have never seen an aggregated user review score that more accurately represented how much I might like a game than the pro review aggregate.

Not to drag this out because I respect that other people know what they like but..

Resistance BS got a "Pro" metacritic of 60 from 63 critics vs less than 10 for COD Vita. The user reviews at the moment are nearly the same for both games.

I enjoyed Burning Skies a bit. But I'm super biased when it comes to Resistance.

UziHorowitz says:
You're talking about two different games, one with a 29 and one with a 60. 60's can be enjoyed under the right circumstances, 29's are almost always trash.

No worries, I sounded like a Sony rep trying to talk you guys into buying it lol.

I will give Infinite a try when it cheaper simply because I'm not sure that I will get into it. I think those guys are really creative and make an awesome world though. That was what drew me in. I'm not into the run and gun stuff.

I thought you were interested in it and defending it, like I said I didn't mean any offense. Will you be playing Bioshock Infinite?

Paper Tiger says:
Not much different than you defending Resistance:BS ; )

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 15, 2012 1:44:08 PM PST
I don't think ALL of them are overreacting. I mean, User reviews for games on PSN and XBL are almost always higher than MetaCritic. Observe:

http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-360/arkadian-warriors

59%

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Arkadian-Warriors/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d80258410807

75%

Paper Tiger says:
I don't play FPS I was just surprised you guys all thought it stunk based on pro reviews. That and I feel bad for you guys waiting for a good game. Also, I am working lol.

If you set me loose to review FPS I'd give Halo 4 the same score as this most likely. I'd be equally bored with both.

It's more likely for someone to defend something if they have personal stake in it.

Paper Tiger says:
I just looked at Metacritic finally and the user score is 6.3. The 29 is the "pro" reviewers. That's about what I expected. End of speculation I guess on a game I never wanted ; ) Poor Vita.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 15, 2012 1:40:14 PM PST
I don't mean any offense here, but if you want to buy the game, just buy it. You're not going to convince any of us in here that it's a good game.

That means you probably wouldn't like CoD, as you appear to have actual taste in FPS games.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 15, 2012 1:38:25 PM PST
UziHorowitz says:
At any rate, bump it up by 10, 20, 30 points and it's still not a good game by any stretch.

The "pro" critics. I was looking through user reviews on Amazon and took a look when I was on PSN last night and the game is sitting at 5 stars with 200+ reviews(which is absurd of course) but it should even out to 3-4 stars I'm sure once the obligatory 1 stars arrive.

I'm the type of person who couldn't even tell you what a good FPS is though. I only liked Bioshock.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 15, 2012 1:31:33 PM PST
Which reviews? The users or the critics?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 15, 2012 1:30:00 PM PST
Paper Tiger says:
Ok, I mean I'm sure this game is mediocre but if I liked FPS and had a Vita I might get it at $20 or somethin. These reviews seem like an over reaction just like Resistance Vita.

Vita is worthless, we already knew this

MetaCritic separates User reviews from Pro reviews (and I use the term Pro very loosely.)
