"I'd always wondered why ZombiU was one of the Wii U's pack-in games, and finally it makes sense. ZombiU isn't the obligatory FPS launch title, but an original twist on the genre that has no console equivalent. It's not quite a revolution, lacking the scope and variety of mechanics to compete with high watermarks like Half-Life 2. But that should take nothing away from Ubisoft's achievement, and the success or otherwise of ZombiU could be defining for Wii U.

You see it in the smart plot-twists, hear it in the ambient weeping of an unknown monster, or try to ignore it in the frantic whispering of a terrified survivor near their end. Perhaps Nintendo's new strategy for tempting gamers, it all seems to say, is more about brains than brawn."

Brony believes that Half-Life 2 is overrated. That's the reason for his post.

I wasn't replying to Brony, actually. I'm curious to see this game get both a 4 and a 9.

PERSONALLY believe it's overrated. I'm not treating my opinion like it's a fact, and it's pretty apparent that I'm the only person in the world who doesn't think much of Half-Life 2.

If it had Minerva Minx in it, you would consider it the best game in the world.

My mistake then.

"If it had Minerva Minx in it, you would consider it the best game in the world."

Nah, I'd just look up the footage online and the rest would be history.

This is a "love it or hate it" sort of niche title.

I mean, sure, IGN hated it... but IGN hated titles like God Hand (3/10) and Deadly Premonition (2/10) as well, and those games have a lot of people who love them to death.

Eurogamer's a good publication, and a 9 from them is pretty impressive.

Yeah, I'm definitely inclined to agree with the whole niche consensus. The game has been getting tons of scores all over the map. I'm curious to see how it does amongst the gaming community as a whole.

I definitely remember Deadly Premonition being a "love it or hate it" title. If any game matches that description, it's Deadly Premonition. I wasn't quite sure how God Hand did amongst everyone, though...

Edit: God Hand can definitely qualify, IMO....

Perhaps the litmus test should be "Did you really like Dark/Demon's Souls?".

Since it seems that if you really loved the Souls games, the sort of punishing, deliberate, methodical play that ZombiU requires will be right up your alley.

Sitting at 71 on Metacritic, seems like your average launch title. Pretty much a standard launch line-up score spread so far to. Low 70's to mind 80's, doesn't sound doomed to me. Why is it that the Sony fanthings are so butthurt about this? Even McLame thinks it's going to be a fine console.

Well I am in the same boat in regards to Portal 2... so I understand.

Actually, you and uncledonnie both. I love Portal 2, but I'll respect that. XD
