I think it's rather saddening, I was really excited to get this game. I'm still getting it, but I had no idea it was going to be "hated" so much.
Although some websites have given it a great scores, I see the negative scores outweigh the positive ones.
I don't base my purchases 100% on reviews, and I hope you don't either. Instead give the game a try tomorrow, when the Resistance: Burning Skies, and Gravity Rush demos are released.
Here are some websites that have reviewed the game:
(IGN, 5.5) http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/05/28/ ... ies-review
(JPS, 6.3) http://www.justpushstart.com/2012/05/re ... w-ps-vita/
(PlayStation Life Style, 8.5) http://playstationlifestyle.net/2012/05 ... view-vita/
(I didn't include the Destructoid review, because I think a score of 2/10 is just very appalling. Jim Sterling is hard to take serious sometimes.)
Those are only a few, but I'd like to know what you guys/gals think!
