The Critical Hit Pretzel!

6/30/14 7:35:24 AM#22

Well, you might want to work on propaganda (seeing as your evident ESO fanboyism which you even throw in your signature silly enough) since when you throw up a missleading title as you did, then give the score of a 7 which is far from bad (specially compared to ESO) you aren't doing a very good job degrading the game.

 

At least I assume you are, considering your post had absolutely nothing of discussion outside throwing someone's review up giving no impression of your own, ignoring any good and just finding a negative quote to be your driving point. I mean come on, be a bit less bias and at least tell of the score rather then use the negative quote (a rarity in the review) as the title (even as stupid as scores are). The only reason I even mention anything is just due to the fact you purposely are flaming a game while linking a review that is actually primarily positive. You know, the Fox news spin.

Still is a good score and better than ESO 6/10 http://www.gamespot.com/reviews/the-elder-scrolls-online-review/1900-6415741/

IGN gave WS 8,7 http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/06/26/wildstar-review and ESO 7.8 http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/03/31/the-elder-scrolls-online-review

PCGamer gave WS 89/100 http://www.pcgamer.com/review/wildstar-review/ and ESO 68/100 http://www.pcgamer.com/review/the-elder-scrolls-online-review/

Metacritic WS overall critics score 85/100 & User score 7.9 http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/wildstar while for ESO oevrall critics is 71/100 and user score 5.8 http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/the-elder-scrolls-online

So imo WS is doing just fine :)

Instead of relying on a single columnist and his staff to predict the potential of a game, I like to see what players actually feel. One of my favorite places to go is IGN. Here, you can get an idea of what players feel.

personally i'm loving wildstar.. having a healing esper 2/4 dungeon attuned with the other 2 should be done by mid week this week and a 50 spell slinger DPS who just got up to his dungeon attunements, i love the challenge the game presents and that everything is not a cakewalk and handed to you like a lot of other games these days.

 

i honestly am having much more fun and spending a lot more time playing this then i did with ESO even though i have a vet 10 sorc, i couldnt bring myself to login much after capping vet 10 and  doing the vet dungeons etc... the challenge just wasnt great enough i left like 2 weeks before the content patch dropped.

 

i could care less what people are reviewing the game as because i'm going to play it regardless of if they give it a 1 or a 10... i'm in a highly active guild with everyone close to being ready to get into raids and basically 2 20 man teams should be ready to go in the next week or so, so then that content will be fun.. and should be well prepared for 40 man content when it's time to jump into that too.

The best comments were from Colin&Co. trying to push dumbfuck GW2 over Wildstar. :)

Any type of review is flawed due to it's very nature, it's 100% completely subjective.  It's like rating food , what tastes terrible to one may be delicious to another.  So I don't really care if gamespot gave Wildstar a 7 or a 1, I am having a ton of fun playing and that's all that really matters. 

 

P.S. - As long as we are talking about opinions, here is mine.  GW2 should be rated below most MMOs including Wildstar, Rift, and WoW, and running neck and neck with ESO as they are both beautiful games with great storyline and that's about all they offer.

Wildstar is a game I should have liked. Always been a fan of WoW style questing and actually enjoyed that part of WS.

But I just couldn't get behind putting time in to a character when I knew there would be nothing of interest in the game once I reached max level.

Are you freaking crazy? This game has tons of end-game and hard to reach goals <o> People even cry out because of the difficulty. Whatever you are smoking man, I want some too, lol.

This is an odd thing to say, considering Wildstar has one of the most robust endgames on release of any mmo. I mean, sure if you don't like actually challenging veteran adventures and dungeons, maxing out reps, 20 and 40 man raiding, pvp bg's, eternal customization of your house, the 40v40 warplots, or even the two new max level zones being patched in very soon, then sure, there is nothing of interest at max level.

I suspect if you don't like those things though, then you don't like themeparks which is totally legit too.

Color me surprised by the low score. The game is very polished, though I completely agree with the "over the top" comments. Always felt they just tried too hard and after a couple weeks of it in beta, it was irritating, not funny.


I hope they do well though, for the sake of the industry and genre.

Yeah, Gamespot gave SWtOR an 8/10. I guess NCSoft doesn't fork out the big bucks to reviewers like EA does. They also gave Rome 2 an 8/10 and that game is a huge turd in the Total War punch bowl.

No i think he's right. And what you said is why i don't like these so called pro.reviews. I would rather get my reviews from people that buy and play games. Its already been proven that the review sites can and have been bought and paid for in the past. How anyone still trust these sites amazes me. But then if your a fan of the game and it gets a good review thats different i guess.

I'm not into the whole gamespot paid reviews conspiracy thing that goes around, and I actually enjoyed SWTOR (for the stories), but I wouldn't call it great, or better than Wildstar or Mists of Pandaria (which got a 7.5).

What you say is 100% true.

 

But I think that Kevin VanOrd, the reviewer, is a case apart. Although there're things and reviews and tastes that I don't share with him - which is perfectly natural - a look at his track record and the time he takes to play games before writing, as well as the effort he puts in analyzing the critical aspects of games, speak of integrity. I mean, you may not share his opinions but saying that he's full of BS would be unfair:

Yeah, I just use that line to add flavor to the absurdity of the rating. I enjoyed the story of my Gunslinger in SWtOR immensely along with owning and living in my very own spaceship (that could have been way more fleshed out though.) Other than that though the game felt really bland and don't even get me started on the endgame fiasco. The best part of SWtOR was the individual story lines, but everything else was done so poorly that user base plummeted and they will never be able to invest the money into furthering the individual voiced stories.

Anyways, my point was that if Rome 2 and SWtOR (as an MMO not single player rpg) are 8s, then Wildstar should be at least an 11 on that scale.

I think he's fighting an uphill battle. TESO is leaking subs to WS. WS has a lot better reception than TESO. It had smoother launch and its overall more fun with more features. I can't imagine a world where a game like TESO is doing better than WildStar. The games are just in different leagues. It's like comparing lemons to oranges.

They're both leaking subs to WoW.  People are starting to return to get ready for WoD.  I play both WoW and ESO right now, but more and more of my friends are coming back to WoW.

 

Edit: Since WoW just started Beta of WoD, last night we had 6 people who left WoW come back and raid with my guild.

 Just because 6 people returned to WoW doesn't mean any game is "leaking" subs to it.  WoWs player base is lower than it has ever been and history has shown that WoW always picks up about a million or so subs upon x-pack release.  I played WoW for 8 + years and I will not be returning for WoD and neither will any of the 10 friends that I have raided with since TBC that I am now playing wildstar with. 

 

Truth be told, WoW was a great game, it's still a solid game but it's old and stale for a lot of long time players.  Also a lot of the more hardcore WoW players aren't happy with the constant over simplification of the game.  Which is why those people tend to really enjoy a game like wildstar. 

 

WoW is far from dead but I don't think people who are playing Wildstar would leave to play WoW.  Wildstar basically does everything WoW does but better and it's new and fresh.   The people that will return to WoW are the people that don't like actually working for their loot and IMO Wildstar is better off without them.

people here seems shocked that someone's review doesn't reflect their own opinions of the game.

i personally would'nt give it that high of a rating and it's not a stab at everyone who likes the game.. it's just my opinion.
