I didnt see the peacewalker review, but you have got to be shitting me! Did ign honestly dock points for a complicated story? This is why ign is undescribably frustrating when reading reviews sometimes, but honestly, I think I was so happy with BBS's review because IGN actually gave everything more than a 7 (well, one 7.0 exactly)
yeah

it is pretty retarded :/
Huh.. I looked at both the graphic scores for BBS, MGS: PW and FFVII CC:

BBS: 7.5
CC:8.5
PW: 9.0

This reviewer is BS. All of those games are practicly on the same graphical level and BBS got the lowest score.

i for one think that bbs has better graphics than peacewalker

not that peacewalker has bad graphics

Somewhere of course.
Okay review but I really disagree about the music. Yeah there are quite a few music from the other games in this one, but alot of these remixes sounds great. Overall the soundtrack is very top notch, and seeing the sound section having only a 7 mostly due to the soundtrack is just sad IMO.

Crudcakes. You beat me to it. Anyhoo, this was a fairly good review for IGN. I do agree that the worlds are a tad generic, but Kingdom Hearts is no Zelda. Believe me. Exactly how is the music recycled? Could someone elaborate on this please.

The worlds that were in previous games have "recycled" themes, even though they've been remixed (Radiant Garden, Olympus, Mysterious Tower). Apparently this is enough to call the majority of the tracks recycled :\

I agree completely about the battle system.

I just find it odd that after all the praise they've given it, it only got a 8.5.

All in all, this was a fair review and I think it will get kh the fans it deserves. Though, I have to question the UMD-only buying option. What was the logic behind that, Square?

Dissidia. Like nobodiesguard said, approximately 5.2 million units were pirated.

The World That Never Was
Same here. I personally thought the BBS soundtrack was the best one in the entire series.

I agree with both of you guys. from what i listened to on youtube, this is def. one of the best soundtracks for the series. I also don't get the worlds things. Hollow and empty? This is the first KH in long time to have new worlds.

And to whoever said it, you're right. IGN always complains about the camera controls on every game they ever review.

8.5 is still good though. They really liked the story and battle it sounds like. But like Sign said, the love the battle system and only give it a 8.5? I really disagree with that chart.

BTW I like your avatar Sign

not that peacewalker has bad graphics

it is pretty retarded, and that just put me in a bad mood.

and as far as the graphics thing, I feel crisis core and bbs are both ahead of peacewalker graphicswise, only by a little, and I think bbs and crisis core are probably about the same

Yeah. The BS got the most praise. I expected it to atleast get a 9.0 or 9.5.

They are. I think i read somewhere that BBS used the same engine as CC. And like I said, CC got an 8.5, and i believe BBS should've got that too.

th thing is that

i think that the reviews of one site reflect on others

when GT and gamespot reviews it, it will most like have the same reviews

but i hope that the cons are much more reasonable

I bet they will give good reviews. IGN barely talked about BBS. GS and GT gave the most coverage on it. I think their reviews will give the game the score it deserves unlike IGN.

Reviews almost always tend to be very similar though. If I read a bad FF review in GI, IGN will say the same thing. Honestly, reviewers biggest problems are as far as rpg's, it seems like they are all stuck in the past (ps1) days of rpg's. Yeah, ps1 may have had some of the best ones out there, but the thing the reviewers aren't getting through their heads is that some good rpg's are still produced today.

I'm more interested in the Gametrailers review, and what the Noobtoob guys think of it, just because I'm curious. ^^

But at least this review was okay. I mean, it can't get as bad as that Dissidia review from, I think, GameInformer? Seriously, you don't let a guy who hates Final Fantasy review a Final Fantasy game.
