Hmm... Why do I get the feeling OXM is being bitter because they're not skilled at the game...

I'm revealing my questionable music tastes here, but it's probably the same reason "Kerrang" gave Linkin Park's "Reanimation" 1/5. It's not really anything new, it's just remixed. Therefore, by some strange logic, it's lazy.

But if they're anything like the guy on IGN, then yeah. They suck.

9 is still a good score and i dont think its just because its a remix or too hard

NGB wont have the same impact as NG had even with the extras

im not even that excited about NGB because i know what to except

A 9 is a very good score for this game, if you know that even with all these extra's, it's a year old now.

actually, only the story is a year old. the rest of the game has been completely changed.

True, but the very core is still the same. Beneath all those new things, it is still the Ninja Gaiden we came to love and worship.

Reviewers and scores don't matter. It's what the fans like you or me think about a game that matters.

Also true, but the trouble is, reviewers can make and break a game. as people see them as experts, which they aren't(usually).

oh and Ryu: WTF? you're two ranks ahead of even me and Sabotage.

I sure am Very Happy

And the whole review thing: no matter what they sey about a game, it's all about if you will like it. For instance: the gave Dino Crisis 3 and GoldenEye Rogue Agent bad reviews, yet still I own them and have a lot of fun with these games. Sadly not much people think the same way Sad

if reviewers think it's good, more people will buy it, if more people will buy it there will be more chance for a sequel. Q.E.D.

The game is already a year and half old and I guess that affected the score. OXM probably gave the "can't-teach-an-old-dog-new-tricks" review for the game, but are you really gonna listen to that?

As for rank, you all need to play some serious catch-up to get anywhere near my rank or Keylay's rank but don't fret! You'll make it.


Very Happy

Well, my local EB just called me to tell me to confirm my preorder and tell me that NGB ships here on Sept. 23rd... Guess it got pushed back a little.
