I dont really pay attention to the opinion aspect of an review. As im sure even with all the negatives about the game there are people who still think its a good fun game.
Yeah, everyone I've talked to who has played it has liked it. Things like repetition are subjective. I find CoD/BF4 to be two of the most repetitious games out there yet people love them for some reason.

You should look up Deadly Premonition. The game got hit hard across the board with reviews, but many people think it's the best survival horror/mystery game last gen and one of the best games of the generation in general. 1 review or 30 reviews, I don't put any stock into any of them. If I did, there are countless games I never would have played that are better than most AAA games that get 10/10s.

Deadly Premonition >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Bioshock Infinite/Last of Us/GTA5, but it got a 2/10 from IGN. Here you have one of the craziest, off the wall games that brings extremely unique characters, an amazing story, fun gameplay, a crazy world full of weird things going on, and it gets a 2/10 where you got a FPS game that does absolutely nothing new or interesting in Bioshock Infinite, it's just another first person shooter, getting 10/10s across the board. It's a disgrace.

To be honest I rarely buy a game anymore without playing it first. I had to learn the hard way that great reviews don't make a great game. Remember that one Matrix game? It got awesome reviews, I paid 60 bucks for it and finished it within 5 hours. Worst buy of my life. Then there are these movies in game format that don't offer a lot in terms of gameplay but get 10/10 reviews (The Last of Us, Beyond, Fahrenheit,...). It's crazy! Luckily there are Let's Plays these days.

Mine was force unleashed.

I wait until there is a used copy somwhere so I can return it if its awful or I beat it quickly. I don't own any of the arhkam games for that reason.

Played about 2.5 hours of Knack, it's pretty good. The only real fault I have with it 2.5 hours in is that 3-4 times during a chapter, there will be a cool looking jump and instead of the game letting you do it, it happens in a cut-scene. Other than that it has been fun, and quite challenging which adds a lot to it. The bosses remind me A LOT of old school bosses like Jak & Daxter/Sly Cooper, which works really well with this style of game.

There hasn't been a straight platformer in so long. I might check that out M.C.

Well it's not a straight platformer, if you want one of those get Mario 3D World that just came out or Rayman Legends. Knack is more of a beat 'em up with some platforming elements.

I played a bit more of it, so far it is certainly better than Killzone. Killzone is yawn inducing at the best of times, and after day or two of multiplayer it gets boring. At least this game is challenging with a unique graphic style and a very unique character to play as.

I dunno... all the review sites i go to have given deadly premonition an average to good review. The user scores tend to average on 7-8 out of 10. I dont go to IGN though.

Even Gamespot gave it a 7 (Good) out of 10 and thats a very mainstream gaming website. And the user score is 7.7 out of 10.

I was expecting the reviews to straight up trash it.

Some have recognized it as one of the best games ever made, like these guys:

http://metro.co.uk/2011/08/10/the-10...fect-2-110631/

http://www.destructoid.com/deadly-pr...e-164794.phtml

http://www.gamecritics.com/daniel-we...he-year-part-1

So you are right that some acknowledged it for its rightful place in one of the best games ever made list, but there are many reviews that are under 5/10, the game has a 68 on metacritic, and for a game as outstanding as it is that is embarrassing and has made me completely ignore reviews ever since that game came out.
