I call BS on your review, you have already pre-judged this game in your worst of 2013 debacle.




To claim, "what I experienced in this game was the aforementioned degrading and shameful experience." is ludicrous. In other MMO's I have beheaded both men and women as well as a number of imaginary folk, beheaded that is with fountains of blood literally spraying out of the neck, I have disemboweled, electrocuted, melted, disintegrated, shot, kneecapped so many pixel's I can't count. Yet you don't bash those for violence. Almost every game displays so mild form of nudity, in one shape or another (though I concede SB takes it to a new level) and you don't bash the others. 




I don't play SB, I downloaded it, tried it out, but it was not my cup of tea.  But this review is shameful, and it degrades honest reviewers, so again I call BS on the review!

It's funny, reviews like this just make me want to download the game to see how crap it is for myself.  It makes me laugh how disgruntled people get over a bit of bare female flesh.  Everywhere you look there's tits and arse, from music videos on TV to posters in the high street.  It's ok to find loads of imaginative ways to kill people in a video game, but show a nipple and it's time to call the vicar.

I'm trying to figure out what's in the game, but I can't as the reviewer was so "offended" that he forgot to write the full game review.


 


Why did they have someone that can't handle cleavage write a review for this game?  He got so damn upset and flustered he couldn't really review the game.  


 


Maybe I haven't seen all of this game but everything I've seen has characters that are covered to an extent...no Mortal Online type nudity.

Wow...a review from MMORPG that's not a score of 7.5.  Interesting.

I find it ironic that this game claims to have a "mature theme," as the first thing that came to mind when I tried it out was "this is juvenile nonsense."

__________
When you see a new MMORPG, honestly think to yourself: "Is this game designed to EARN my $15 per month subscription with content, originality, and long-term value, or is it just designed to SCAM me out of $50 when I buy the box at the store with flashy advertising, biased reviews, and empty promises?"

You have eight headings up there under which you rate this game.  In five out of eight you keep smashing us over the head with the "shameless pornography" thing (after you already gave it to us in the intro I might add).  We get it already ... you were offended.  Alright, fine, you covered that pretty well in the friggin title actually.  I agree their approach is over the top, blatent, ridiculous, etc ... but could you spare us the morality hammer please and just review the game.  There are plenty of games out there where characters are taken straight from a stereotype - or we get to see spines ripped out of bodies, heads cut from their necks, limbs hacked off - or any number of other themes, yet you're losing your mind over some breasts and jiggle?  Get real man.  I tried the game and I think it sucks.  I had a chuckle at the "in your face" use of erotic themes and moved on to the next one.  I really don't think you were exercising very good journalistic integrity here.

If you can't kill it, don't make it mad.

Do you think you could have used the words "degrading and shameful" a few more times?... ^^  Granted the game is silly, and as a MMO its the all too typical grind fest, but going on (and on...) about how "degrading" it is,  says more about your ideology, than it does about the game.  

Lets not even get in to the PC aspects of this, but you could have simply pointed out how little the game brings to the table in terms of game play, its dynamic systems and all of the related *game* aspects, and that would have been more than sufficient, to warrant a low score.

You are obviously not part of the demographic that this game is targeted at.  As much as some might wish other wise, sex sells, especially to those this game is directed at.  But without all of the hysterical over reactions that its received, it would have rightly passed un noticed by the vast majority of players.

Morals are absolutely relevant to aesthetics if the aesthetics offend.

If you are "offended" by some aspect of a game, the best response is to not play it, and go play something else.

Is it just coincidence that mmorpg.com is no longer displaying ads for this game that it got a (slightly) unfair review? LOL


 


Don't get me wrong, I agree with most of the review, BUT some things I don't think were fully fair.. the game LOOKS good(Aside from it being pretty offensive for a 'mainstream' game)


 


But ya, I find it amusing that this came out the day after the ads stopped.

While I don't entirely disagree with the review, it sure seems like the reviewer had his mind made up before he even started playing. This is the poorest review I've seen on this site so far. Seemed more like a rant than a review. Oh well, they can't all be good. For the most part I love MMORPG.com reviews. Keep up the good work fellas! :D

Just google "Topfreedom wikipedia", you may find the new york section an interesting read lol

 

Edit: I took out the link as it has a couple boobies showing on the wiki page and i don't feel like getting some warnings.

Here is my take on this MMO from a woman's perspective.


 


I went in to this game knowing what is was like on the surface. It's a game geared towards a very specific market and hits the target. It's a fairly humorous game and makes no issue to point this out to you. If you take this game as seriously as you would a ranked SC2 match, you'll come out disappointed.


This game is about using fantasy women in a fantasy setting. Shameful and Degrading? Not so much. While this game makes it a point to keep each character as scantily dressed as possible, the developers make it a point not to go overboard. Players that intentionally go around in what is essentially the "buff" are quickly taken care of. Dress me in lingerie, yes. Prance me around naked, no.


What also makes this game different from whatever the reviewer plated, is that while skin is heavily prevalent, these women are deadly combatants. The developers have made sexy women who are also skilled soldiers. While this is a heavily used cliche, it's a good one. Basically along the lines of, "I can take on anything while still looking good."


The developers also portray these digital ladies a little more realistically than your average magazine portraying the latest Cover Girl. While they have some amazing measurements, they are within the realm of reality. And yes, for the most part the typical Asian male fantasy of a good looking woman with very large breasts is in the game. But then, so is it in many other Asian games, Anime, and Manga.


Gameplay wise....this game needs a lot of work. It's not the worst game I've ever tried, but it really really needs work. Really mediocre, kind of like Defiance.


If you can keep in your head that this is an ASIAN developed game with the NORMAL ASIAN MALE preferences while also taking in to consideration that this game does NOT take itself too seriously (it does more than Wildstar though) and if you can put up with a mediocre game (hey, if you got through Defiance (the game) you can get through this) then it might be a game for you.


And for those of you who feel this is "Shameful & Degrading" experience, I suggest you compare these completely fake women with what you see on a fashion runway or magazine. Heck, these 3d woman look more human than most supermodels.

If this was written for solely that reason, then it should be titled as an Editorial not a Review. The two are not exactly the same.

Please do heed your own advice as you seem to be one that needs it. Again, we aren't discussing seeing breast in a game. I don't understand why some of you have such a deep rooted desire to see naked 14 year old sex dolls, nor do I understand why you feel anyone that doesn't needs to grow up

 Highlighted for you even though you will still not to see the hypocrisy...

I'm not sure if that was meant for me or not. If it was...

Yes, with some getting bent out of shape because many find the game and it's models offensive it does come off as they have a deep rooted need to see these models, so much so that they need to bash and insult anyone that doesn't find the models appropriate for a game. Yes, I do feel that look like 14 year old sex dolls and for $20 extra yes, they can be naked. 

Yes, being appalled by something that resembles a 14 year old sex doll is different from being offended by seeing breast in a game. 

Yes, I feel telling people to grow up because they find the models and their young perverse appearance to be offensive to grow up is confusing.

 

You are correct that I do not see the hypocrisy so by all means please point it out to me. 

 

dude let me explain it to you: to grow up means also to be aware and responsibility of your emotions, thinking and reactions. if you have issues, you are ashamed of nudity or you have other problems with it

1. dont go to a nudist beach

2. try to understand what you are afraid of

3. because we are speaking of morality  and  ethic - they are not universal. Game reviews should not go into this territory.  People spouting moral lessons on a gaming site are hypocritical (look the all killing, wars and drama in games ) and dont have the mandate nor competency to teach people of what is moral and what not.

I wouldn't preach about competency if I were you seeing as you have completely failed at reading my post and or comprehending it prior to replying to it. 

Nudity (Partial or fully) in itself is not an issue nor is it the issue. I've explained it as plainly as I can and if you can not understand it by now you really shouldn't attempt lecturing anyone about competency.

Yet another article based on a pseudo-feminist point of view that actually is just another patriarchal religious bullcrap. Reminds of the early days of cinema and TV. You showed a breast and it was hell to pay, now it's common. Games are the new grounds, show a nipple and it's distasteful, degrading, bad, satanic, heretical, evil to the core! But as more and more companies understand and break away from this stupid point of view (hey George, violence should be such a bigger issue than a nice pair of breasts) I hope we will get the gaming industry to the maturity level that finally other visual midias have achieved.


Not saying just blunt out porn out everything, but if you want to add nudity to a game, more power to you. Nothing wrong with that (see popularity of nudity mods).


 


Fun fact, APB has in it's female textures nipples draw on them (G1 didn't remove it in APB:Reloaded). Maybe they got scared of this kind of negative crap from the media and decided to pull away from ever putting (or allowing the removal) clothing that would show a bit more skin. Can still dress your character like a tramp. Like most games (don't even get me started on their "art" about the game. Seriously, even those timed based "strategy" browser games sport a scantly clad girl to advertise them and you don't see articles giving crap about it).

I can never judge games by their content because I have no game design experience. Far too many of these 'Reviews' are done by bloggers who also have no game design experience.


 


IMHO I find nothing wrong with Scarlet Blade except with some icon/toolbar problems. I would rate this game with solid nines. I minimize chat and don't pay attention to what other characters are doing, unless they decide to attack me.

I pretty much agree with this. I think SB likes to dramatize things a little too much.

There are many things young folk<including teens> are doing now which parents are either turning their heads or not curbing.

With America's fear-approach to any topic on sexuality often leaves much room for ignorance and fear that can have a negative effect. Sometimes it is better to be open with one's own kids and explain things, even things deemed as uncomfortable instead of leaving them out to find those things out themselves where then possible issues can occur.


That does not come from relying on a video-game or any other form of entertainment for instructions or 'moral' structures<would be poor to rely on entertainment for self-image or instructions in the first place>. It comes from actual guidance and real-world factors and dealing with real-world situations that eventually everyone will have to face in their life-time. Real-life is not always a bed of roses or a park walk. It's knowing how to deal with those situations that are important and have an actual effect on one's life, not worrying about a optional and non-obligatory M-rated titles in video-games with some nude pixels.


Whether they want their kid to play a game or not is up to those parents but if it is already rated for a audience, then that audience is allowed to play it by rating requirements. Not every child is raised under the same guidelines or expectations as every other child, nor should they forced or expected to be as such. What it comes down to if the parent approves of them playing a game or not, and SB is still rated M regardless.


Some parents disapprove of the story <The Perks Of Being a WallFlower> and want it banned. Does it mean that an entire book should be forever banned because it makes a couple of parents out there uncomfortable<it talks about the voodoo subjects like sexuality, drugs, abuse, pyschological issues and suicide > so no one else can view or read it? No I don't believe so and the same is to video-gaming.  The problem with gaming is that these subjects are never touched upon and if they are they are quickly put under a cover or put away. Because gaming is still being consider only a Disney Place, where such subjects should never be expressed in a game or immediatly become shunned. Yet gaming itself can diversely serve audiences of different ages. No different than movies or books can yet the realization of this still hasn't occured. Which is why gaming still remains within the 4 walls effect


The ratings and descriptions of games exist for a reason so those who play games know ahead of time what to expect in a game.

As for America's phobia on human form and sexuality, one part I do not understand with all the bible-thumping religion condemnation of the human form, it was the very same westernized god who made what the human form looks like for both female, male and in-between. In reality it should be a celebration, not a condemnation influenced by hypocrites who'll condemn the human body, yet praise and support painting of naked cupid or a cover off national geographic.

Your comments about its aesthetics lacks objectivity, a characteristic required for good journalism. Your moral views are irrelevant to aesthetics, probably shaped and nurtured by some corporate religion. This is a meta-ethical moral relativists world we live in by the way

Morals are absolutely relevant to aesthetics if the aesthetics offend.

The problem is that the "morals" of ultra-violence in these games is *NEVER* pointed out or scored negatively, but apparently sexuality is.

I have no doubt this game sucks ass, and is cheesy, though I haven't played it. But I don't need morals dictated to me by reviewers, especially if the morality of violence and other aspects aren't rated in these games by said reviewers.

I notice they had no problem collecting advertising funds for this "degrading" game.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.
