I'm not going to 100% believe critic reviews because they could also be paid.


 

Looks like you haven't play ME1 and ME2 series... this is what happened when people jump the gun right on ME3 without playing the previous series.

I was just skimming over the user comments and a quite a few of them quite thoroughly explain their reasons for why they didn't like the game. I myself have played through ME1 and have pretty much lost count of how many times I've played through ME2 with various difficulty settings and classes. A lot of them seem to know what they're talking about.

I believe it when all the Metacritic users are saying that the game's dialogue has been drastically dumbed down and the whole thing has essentially been turned into a Michael Bay movie. I believe them when they're saying that the game raises a middle finger to those who played previous games with gaping plot holes, even if they imported their ME2 Sheps.

Looks like EA/Bioware is not getting my money after all. It's a great weight off my chest I suppose, I was getting tired of all the hype and wait deciding whether it it was worth spending money on it.

After reading through all of the reviews, I've come to the following conclusion. None of which is my personal opinion.
Here are the two main reasons people are upset with ME3.

Spoilers obviously.

First. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It's finally revealed what the Quarians look like and people have judged it as a cop-out on Bioware's part. . Their faces are basically identical to humans, ruining any mystique or mystery to them.
As quoted by one woman.
Quote:
"What was the point of hiding them and keeping their faces a secret for so long then? Bioware went for the easy way out in order to make everybody happy and cheapened the character."

Second. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The ending is too static. No matter what you do, everything follows the same chain of events.

1. The Relay explodes.
2. The Normandy crashes.
3. Shepard Dies.

There's nothing you can do to change the ultimate outcome. Which, for a game based heavily on individual actions, kills the sense of wonder.

No dude, you're supposed to rate it 10/10 because you super like the game and anyone who doesn't is a troll.

I never follow reviews anymore, people are way too harsh and only tend to review things they don't like only. When people enjoy something rarely do they really write a good review. Think of it like this, what seems more likely to happen a comment on how good something as they play it and really get into it ? Or a comment on something you don't like, and you sit there complaining all day because you can't enjoy it and feel like you wasted your money.

Some of my favorite movies, and video games have TERRIBLE reviews, and I prefer them over these 10/10 Halo, GTA, popular title games etc. The only game I've played that had a 10/10 that I absolutely believe deserved it was Bioshock.

Having played through both twice, I liked them and really like this one. Everything has been building up to this point. I have listened to the soundtrack and some of the tracks and titles imply that this will be a very epic game IMO.


Besides what is Metacritic. No really, never heard of it....rolleyes.gif

Now we just need Yahtzee to aim his critic-cannon this game. And he WILL do it because he reviewed both ME1 and ME2.
