I feel like very, very few AAA games underperform nowadays in terms of review scores. Most big name games seem to be at least 80+ on Metacritic. Publishers are smart enough in most cases to just keep games in the oven (even if it means delays) until they're at least 'good'.

I actually think this will review better than a lot expect. I'm going for a 91 Metacritic.

20 minutes for crows to be eaten or haters to be celebrating

This is going to be an iconic thread

Peak Era until Bloodborne 2 is announced
Even if it reviews well, it'll just be the same as every other review thread, especially for exclusive games, where the haters will keep regurgitating and relying on the handful of rare hyper critical outlier reviews, intentionally ignoring the majority of less scathing or more complimentary ones.

A solid 79 is my guess. +2 to 81 if the narrative turns out to be great. -3 to the MC score if it had a lot of rough technical issues.

But I'm betting on 79 - which is a good start for a new IP.

I actually don't know how to predict this one...I'll say 80 I guess but I'm not sure at all. Probably the hardest game in a long time to predict

Is this the end of Sony?
Will Sony Bend prove their worth?
Will Era go crazy?
Find out in the next episode of Crazy Ball Z.

To be honest I am more excited for its commercial performance

I am expecting it to be Sony's biggest launch ever for a new IP if it scores 80+

Same.

I can't wait for that bump in the game bombing thread. Will be so good and will shut down all the "generic, zombie fatigue" narrative we had to see since the game was announced.

Consider me impressed if it scores more than 85.

If the world is littered with detail and stuff to reward exploration, and the gameplay isn't hindered by "survival" busywork that makes things more frustrating than necessary, I could see this having a better score than that, actually. Rather curious.

Imma commit to a solid 83, because of reasons.

I really shouldn't have as much fun as I do with these silly predictions, lol.

Team 70-79. I expect something between 75-79. And something like really classic, maybe too, but with a good execution. Not a bad game, but nothing to get excited about.
