This looks like those half-assed SEGA ages remakes sega used to do on the PS2.

Don't take the lord's name in vain. An agnostic has reprimanded you.

The videos look alot better then the screenshots, seems like they got rid of a lot of the darkness though. Don't really need the torch anymore.

I still don't understand why they removed some of the textures. We'll see....I'm still keeping my eyes out on this once but the signs have been pretty negative so far. I was hoping for something along the lines of the MGS HD caliber.

my shitty laptop w/ an integrated graphics card playing the old pc versions can probably make these games look and run better than this

Here's a question. Why is it, in MGS 2, the node information has been changed? You can't put your birth year in, and it doesn't ask for your full name, only your nick name. Seems odd.

The HD collection and Downpour are both getting patches. Unbelievable the HD collection needs one.

Will reviewers that gave Downpour a 3 out of 10 raise their score?

Hah yeah right.


I'm on quite a few different video game boards and I can tell you that those reviews have for sure influenced people to stay far far away from Downpour, even though the truth is it's a pretty good game. Reviewers have a huge influence on people buying games or not even though some don't like to admit it. You can even see it here on the "what games have you beaten in 2012" thread where there's a few "did it really deserve a 3 out of 10?" posts.

Fuck you IGN.

they didn't get paid enough for a review

as you said, reviewers have influence over what the majority buys, and they know this

Thats pretty much a given since the beggining of this gen.

They review technology, they dont review if the game is enjoyable or not.

I don't know why people care so much. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion and it's sitting on basically a 7/10 right now on Metacritic, which I say is about right from what I've played so far, maybe a 6/10, so why are we all fussing about one review which we all disagree with?

IGN gave it a 4.5/10, not a 3, and is the only 'red' review score on Metacritic.
