The perils of the Hype Train…

The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

What do these ratings mean?

Alright, it really kills me to see games like this get so much hype and attention. I own the game I thought I give it a try and now I must reveiw it on my fav site. GH3. To start off with should not cost $100 dollars nor should the game itself cost $50. The bottom line is this is a DDR "Dance Dance Revolution" style game. People always consider DDR players to be losers yet they look at this and think its "cool". Ill explain. Graphics, they are horrible cartoony and poorly animated graphics. Most reviews and preveiws you read all say the same thing, "Improved Graphics!" Yea, improved from what? The N64? Common? Give me a break, its not like the game disc itself is cramed full of songs that they couldnt bump the graphics with "Reall" charactors or at least, at least make the audience look reall. Madden NFL has millions of fans in the stage this game has like 60 at most and they all have the same 3 animations that they go through. I guess I can understand why they dont put good graphics is so it doesnt destract you. Its a decent excuse. But it doesnt clear the $100 price tag. Onto gameplay, alright Ill admit, the game is a lil fun at first when you first start trying to memorize the colors to puch at the right time and getting the fealling your really playing the songs and whatnot, but after you play bassically one song on hardest difficulty your pretty much able to play them all. You have these lil bubbles that come at you and you start off only needing to use 3 of the colors on the lil miniture guitar but after a while youll master them and when you do youll probably jump from hard to the hardest diffuculty. They introduce a mario go cart formula to this game. Durring boss battles and online battles you can send attacks at your opponent, which were cleaverly come up with but it is so broken and incomplete that its one of those things youll avoid, for instance, playing single player when you get to a boss and are using a attack that cuts his strings, he will repair them in two seconds then come back with the same move to you and youll spend the rest of the song trying to repair it. Its so broken, it also sends random attacks at your opponent so you never know exactly what your doing nor do you have control over when and what to attack with. They come in forms of special notes when hit correctly itll send a random attack so there is no "stragedy" to it, you play and hope you get the best attack.

Now, the guitar that comes with it is wireless, and thats the only reall cool thing about it. younger teens will think its cool and hip but if your 20 and up itll feel like a kids toy when you put it around your neck. Its small, plasticy feels easy to break and you look dumb as hell with it on. I personally dont care what people think of me but ill have to admit having my girl there while playing kinda made me feel stupid expecially when a reall guitar impresses. The guitar doesnt earn the $100 price tag eather. It all comes as a bundle but with the ps1/ps2 graphics, the ddr unoriginal gameplay and the limited amount of songs its just not worth the price. Definitly a intristing game at first but about 2 weeks and you'll be back to playing other games that companies actually spent time and money in developing.
