You should be shot, right now. Bloodwake is hands down the best example of developers making great graphics, and some of the worst gameplay/story/sounds ever. Bloodwake is the best example, horrible gameplay, the worst story ever, and some lame boring sounds, BUT GREAT GRAPHICS. This is why I hate new systems, graphics get better, and better, thats why I see no reason in making new systems, cause Graphics sell 80% of the time, never a game with great gameplay, and a great story, those never sell. So developers make games with great graphics. I hate it. Want an example? Eternal Darkness is one of the best games of all time IMHO, and look how well it sold....I rest my case. Oh yeah, guess what, it didnt have very good graphics.

On the subject, I've never disagreed with the majoraty of ratings. The only rating I've ever disagreed with is (if you read most of my posts, you guessed it) Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. I won't discuss GTA:VC. Other than that, I can't ever say I disagreed 100% with a rating, Game Informer, IGN, and Gamespot gives.

Conflict Desert Storm didn't rate that well, but it sold a million copies, and it's still the same price as it was when it came out last October. But it got lousy scores, and it's my favorite game.

Bloodwake was another, bad score..good game situation.

Prisoner of War, it got a 5.9 by OXM, its not a game for everyone, but I like it and think its a pretty good game.

Dead To Rights..................."It's too hard" bunch of whiners, great game, great challenge. Perfect example of gameplay over graphics.

Runner up, although all of a sudden everyone is seeing how much fun it is, but Buffy got slammed when it was released, I love this game also, alot of fun.

Most recentlly, Tao Feng, very under appreciated.

Buffy got slammed?
correct me if I'm wrong but Official Xbox Magazine gave it a 9.0 when it came out. That doesn't count as slammed in my book.

Dead to Rights is a Perfect Example..................


BUT........................TWO games come to mind


QUANTUM REDSHIFT, BLINX.


they got slammed, but they are two of the most enjoyable games that I played last year.

NFL Fever 2003 didn't score as high as I think it should have and I've played the other two football games.

Two games that score high that are trash are NHL 2K3. Great gameplay with best A.I. I've ever seen but PS1 graphics. Also EA's NHL 2003. What a waste of a once good series.

People that say gameplay over graphics IMO are just giving lazy (EA Sports) developers an excuse. At the prices we pay for games the graphics and the gameplay should be stellar.

I hope companies that put out games like Shrek, Raw and Kabuki Warriors end up losing a lot of $$ on those type of games because there is no excuse for them.

Blood Wake, Quantum Redshift, and Kung Fu Chaos. All of them I had a good time with, and was surprised when they weren't rated that great, but who cares, ratings don't make decisions for me.

I've never heard a bad word about Blinx, other than it isn't for the serious nut out there who loves to play "serious" games. Only stuff I have heard about it is that it the trendsetter in how to use the XBOX for games, with the VCR feature well utilised on a system that can handle it.....

I think NBA 2K3 is a lot better than people rate it. As well as Ghost Recon.

Kung Fu Chaos. what else can i say other than GIGANTIC and REVENGENCE DAY! lol that game was great fun.

Batman Dark Tomorrow had bad ratings but it will always be in my heart... and i'll be sure to play it over and over...

Buffy The Vampire Slayer....get the "No one play this game" award at Gamespot... :rolleyes: I like it to dead...

yeah, who can forget nfl fever 2003. That game really got slammed and is a joy to play on LIVE.


NBA INSIDE DRIVE 2002 & 2003 also got bad scores but imho are the two best b-ball titles two years in a row.

Exactly what I had in mind.

POW was pretty good, too. I figured when it comes out on PC that PCGAMER would rate it somewhere in the 70%, which is what I would've rated it. Sure enough, POW got a 70%, which isn't bad. Games that rate in the 70's are "GOOD", 80's are "Excellent" and 90's-100 are "Editor's Choice". I love PCGAMER. :]

Didn't Mortal Kombat get somewhat slammed around? I think it's the best Mortal Kombat to date and I play it religiously. By the way, all ya'll are lucky it's not XBox Live enabled :D

You gotta be fu(kin kiddin me. So im gonna take it as a joke. I think that GR was or shall i say is the greatest LIVE game to date, or at least the most played. Tru enough it got a mid to high 8's in the ratings, but i think it deserved a 9.6. I remember the day it came out, i was actuallly debating between it and mechassault, i got GR instead. About 2 months later i got MA on sale, then i sold it back in like 3 days. I still play GR today.

How bout that this is my 100th post!!!!!

I think we are looking at "accross the board" ratings, almost every title gets "ONE" good review somewhere.

Quantum, although a fantastic game, is headed to Platinum status, and Buffy, until recentlly, was no ones choice to pick up...OXM rating or not.

My votes go to Enclave, Turok, and the most unappreciated game ever goes to


NFL2K3!!! Alot of people didn't buy it dispite great reviews. It's far and away the best sports game ever released. It's now selling for $10.00 I couldn't believe it. It's a travesty in the gaming world.

im surprised noone said Azurik yet... that game is one that i loved soo much, one of my favourite games for the box so far

new legends wasnt bad either, it had a good story and awesome gameplay, but its weak graphics screwed it over

I'll second your vote for Azurik. I loved that game. The world was huge and gorgeous. The puzzles were inventive. I was sad when I finished that game.

ya, i have to add to what highlite said - i wouldnt take OXM into consideration for giving reviews. It widely known that OXM is so biased in the reviews they arent even worth reading. I think its a little strange that they usually give the games a few points higher than ANYWHERE esle. Makes me mad.
