GT5 currently only has 11 reviews, that's not a lot of reviews. I would wait until there are more reviews for it to determine if it is a flop or not.

If it doesn't score more than 95 on Metacritic, 360 fanboys will declare it a flop. True story. Either way racing sims are boring. Sorry Blixt. Smile

Well actually, the score could drop even further.

From what I notice about game reviews. The more reviews there are the lower the average will be. Halo Reach started with a 94 and dropped to a 91. Fable 3 started with an 83 and dropped to an 80. Black Ops started with a 92 and dropped to an 88 (85 for PC).

Either way, an 86 is not a flop. A flop would be a game that scores 70-ish...

Was it overhyped? Yea. I remember someone predicting that GT5 will get somewhere between a 97-99 for its metascore. That's a rediculous expectation.

No.GoW 3 was hyped to be best game of the year or something along the lines of that.But when the game came out, it had issues with its story.

If GoW 3 got high AAA like it was hyped to be, then it would have lived up to it.But it didnt

What issues? It ended the trilogy in a way that made sense for the character and the plot. Animations and graphics were the best of the year and it featured some of the most epic moments in a game to date. Not my GOTY, but certainly one of the best titles this year.


XBR, I guess...

Dude, you need to learn what "overhyped" means.It DOES NOT mean that the game was bad.It means it wasnt as good as it was hyped, which is completly true.

Overhyped does not mean flop either.You critisize XBR members yet you seem more stupid than them no offense

LOL WOW

86 metacritic average..................didnt see that coming. I expected a 98 average or soemthing Razz

by the way guys, a flop is when a games reception DOES NOT meet its HYPE.

Hype = AAA
Reality = AA
Game = Flop.......even though AA is still amazing for a game.

Wow so Forza 3 is still king.....review wise.......and sales wise (for now Razz )

That would be crazy if it was 98.


GT5 will pretty much outsell Forza 3 pretty easily due to the Black Friday.

forza 3 has a 3 million lead PLUS is bundled in the 250 gig 360

itll make it all the harder to catch up. besides, NA isnt GT strongest market

YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!


Its a flop fully. for the reason of the amount of years it took them to make it and it only got AA.

This isn't about sales neither which PS3 fanboys can't even counter on Smile.

I should of merged it with the one above but who cares. DW does it Razz

Some of the best games i have played are AA. so really GT5 or any other AA game isnt a flop. but if it sells bad it is Razz

DAMNNN!

I told those fuckers that were saying it'd get like a 98 or 99 that their expectations were too high but they wouldn't listen! Ya know I'm sure it's a good game but I was hearing shit like the racing games to end all racing games from one of my friends but now I can rub it in his face. Razz

A piece from the IGN review.

Quote :
Its brilliance on the track, however is matched by its sloppiness off of it, and there's a lack of polish that would at one time have seemed sacrilegious to the series.

Sad

I think its THE FIRST TIME that any review site praises GTs physics and destroys its graphics...lol, the world we live in...

Hey GT installers take heed, the game is a crash-athon as of right now, be careful when online.... damn, and to think ppl were complaining that F3 was a freezathon... GT gets it on LAUNCH DAY.. check GT Planet's forum if u dont believe, its up there in the GT5 section

PS, Flopza who now beetchez

it will sell more than 3M I'm guessing, play.com have shot up in terms of preorders, better for Sony the bundles have shot way up with Gt5 in too people are really anticipating this game.

I don't know about some of these reviews, guys. An article on N4G says the review copies shipped out Monday. You think that's enough time to play a game and properly review it?

That's because the online wasn't even enabled until the game released. I dont see how you review a game when you've only had it for a day and the online wasn't even available yet. =/ But even so, many will take these few reviews and dub GT5 to be a flop when the actual flop are the reviewers.

You bring up a good point. I liked MAG a lot (lol) and a lot of reviews came out before Zipper even put the servers up. I thought reviewers are suppose to be professional. A meaty content packed game like GT5 should be played for at least 15-20 hours before giving an honest review

Perhaps they should have waited until it comes out to review it.Like they did with Star Craft 2

It's not a flop if you buy it and like the game. Opinions>facts.

Once GT5 gets the same amount of reviews as Forza 3 and is still lower then you can call it whatever you want. Also as Shoke(Jamin) said they got copies of GT5 on Monday and the first reviews came out today and late last night. That gives them 2-3 days to play a massive game like GT5, and write the review. Also as Alan said NO REVIEWER whatsoever even mentioned the online (which is awesome). Sounds fishy to me. It saddens me that some of you call GT5 a flop and don't call Alan Wake one even though the same EXACT thing happened to it. *goes to play GT5*
