Bad Reviews From Mainstream Gaming Sites

in gaming •  23 days ago



Gaming sites like IGN and Gamespot have millions of visits per day. One would expect them to have some gaming knowledge and give fair scores to games they are reviewing, in case of newly released ELEX, a game from Piranha Bytes they reviewed, and wow, they've completely missed the point of this game and gave it 4.9/10. I finished the game and it is easily one of the most rewarding gaming experiences this year. IGN complained that the game is too difficult. The truth is, once you invest some time in it and once the game immerses you in it's world you will see only positives. 



Games like ELEX unfortunately don't  have the budgets of triple A games, so you can't expect it to be as polished as those games. There are several bugs out there, and in my playthrough I haven't found any game breaking one. World of ELEX gives so much of original Fallout vibes even though it is in a completely different universe. Quests are fun, story is fun, world exploring is fun, RPG system is fun, and once you master the combat even the combat is fun. With everything mentioned being fun, how can you give this game a score of 4/10!? Forget the mainstream, forget IGN, they've lost any kind of credibility in my eyes, amount of ignorance is staggering in ELEX review, poor gaming skills of one reviewer destroyed the sales of one of the most original RPG sandbox games that came out in recent years.



If you miss this game you will never come across lines like these above. Remember boys it is all about that ass!

Can't say I'm too surprised, especially since it's IGN. They're definitely one of the companies that gets paid for giving out good reviews. And, just like most mainstream gaming journalist they are basically a joke at this point with their reviews. They'll give piss poor reviews like this for a fun game, yet give 8/10 on the cookie cutter Call of Duty games that change nothing and are dying out.

Once I've read their ELEX review I finally realized what a sham that site is. Well, I knew that the whole time, remember that Heroes of the Storm score 6.4/10? :) IGN does not realize that with great power comes great responsibility.

The price of this game is too high, almost like AAA. So it is deserved. I think it would be awesome game for 25$, not for 50-60$.

·

It is 50$, 10$ less than AAA games, and the game is actually more fun than most AAA games. My playthrough lasted 33h and I explored maybe 40% of the land. In next playthrough with another faction I will have a completely different experience. So, I'd say 50$ is fair.

I am not saying that it is a boring or short game. In my opinion if it would cost 25$ it would have 7/10. Price is important regardless of quality, because you can find many games that cost 10$ and are as fun as this game is.

·

So the price of the game is only based on graphics, or what do you want to say? In this case give me 200$ and go out of the door, THAT graphic is surely worth that money! ;)

not just graphics it is about more things. It is not AAA game so why does it cost the same as AAA games?

·
·
·

So... it is longer then most AAA games, more fun (and diverse) then AAA games... how do you define AAA games if not with those 3 (+graphic) things?

By its price ;)

Nowadays these reviewing sites cannot be relied upon. We have to give a try to the games we love and judge accordingly.

This looks intriguing, and your re-review makes me want to check it out more than if I'd just read something on an official site. And maybe the "less polished" graphics will actually run okay on my aging computer.
