Lost Planet 3 is sitting in the low 60s and rightfully so, truth be told, but I’d recommend it whole -heartedly to anyone who wants some junk food.
lost planet 2 has a 63 which is unacceptable
Lost Planet 2 is probably my pick. Severely underrated game.
lp2 is canon, my husband started playing it with friends using the arcane ass windows live platform and they’re usually 4 of maybe 8-10 people max playing worldwide at any given time, which is a travesty. it’s so fun to watch, i wish all games were dunked in that much bloom. monhun could never.
i really want them to do a re-release porting it to a non-GFWL platform because it truly is one of the best action games ever made
also everyone loving monhun world probably made people more accepting of byzantine control schemes
buying lp2 when it’s .97 cents on steam and making people play it with you without giving them any explanation is the best way to experience it
coincidentally this is also the best way to get people into EYE: Divine Cybermancy
as far as i can tell so much of the lukewarm reception had to do with timing and context and the target audiences not understanding what it was doing, i think western audiences would be way more receptive to it now.
edf 2017 has 69 and 4.1 has 64
i can’t get over that shiren score thats absolute bullshit
Holy shit FFXIII has a 7.2.
LOWER THAN IT DESERVES
Chu Lip has 57. That one really makes scores feel completely irrelevant.
Dark Fall got a 68
Feels like adventure games are unfairly denigrated on metacritic
That was my literal next thought, but I don’t have the time and brainpower to effortpost right now.
But soon, soon I will.
Continue?9876543210 has a score of 62, which is higher than I would have expected. I looked that one up first because I sometimes think that no one liked it other than me.
Raw Danger has a 63 and it’s my favorite game on PS2.
Two recent ones are Crackdown 3 (60) and Wolfenstein: Youngblood (63) which both owned.
Haunting Ground has 67 and is one of my favourite survival horror games. I think at the time it looked dated when releasing right after RE4.
Arcade ports often get scored low due to “dated” gameplay and “lack of replay value”:
Spikeout on Xbox - 54
Zombie Revenge - 60
King of Fighters 99 - 67
Time Crisis Razing Storm - 58 (only home port of Deadstorm Pirates which is worth the admission alone)
Vampire Night - 65
Resident Evil Outbreak File 2 - 58
Sonic the Fighters - 47!
rain world has a 66, which is only one point less than nier, both games i love dearly and yet were more well known for being lambasted by reviewers then anything
Looks like Venetica hit 41 on PS3, and its probably my favorite B-tier Euro Action RPG about wandering around and stealing people’s bread.
OK, yeah, I will legit go to bat for Submerged (PC 47), because anyone who pretends that the last thee Tomb Raider games are in any way preferable, or less clunky, than Submerged are paid shills who have never experienced emotions that they haven’t immediately apologized for. Sometimes you just want to cruise around some ivy covered buildings, and then climb that shit.
resident evil 6 has a 60!!
