Origins was one of the worst platformers i've played in years, I know i'm in the minority, but it's game play was downright sloppy, tedious, annoying, and it didn't offer that classic pixel perfect precise platforming in comparison to something like NSMB.Wii. Didn't have that much fun with it at all, the focus seemed more on the visuals and delivering an experimental artsy fartsy music number. I forced myself to finish it.....And it absolutely pales in comparison to the original 2D Rayman back on the PS1. that game deserves every single trinket of praise that it got. a couple of other members on this site share the same feelings and then some based on origins, but everybody else seems to be swooning over it. I'd rather swoon over wario land shake it, that game was just amazing.

I guess we just have massively different tastes in games, then. I thought Origins and Legends were both fantastic (though admittedly I haven't finished the latter yet). While I enjoyed NSMB and Super Mario 3D world (especially multiplayer), I've been less and less happy with the series with each new release. I also feel that systems don't need to be complex in order to be fun and engaging - I'm the type of person who prefers the skill selections of Guild Wars 2 and the Secret World over something like World of Warcraft, which covers half your screen in abilities.

It said I can start the download at 12:01pm so I'll download it and play some before work.

I'm looking forward to the game, but buying it before its release? ...ok.

I mean it isn't like I'm expecting this to be the next Aliens Colonial Marines or anything but putting that much faith in a new IP before its even released is a bit...eh...(though certainly better than ignoring any new IP for no reason, BUY WONDERFUL 101 YOU FOOLS :( )

But I'll probably get this within a day or 2 of release if enough people say its good.

I've watch pretty much every video they're released about the game and have enjoyed everything I've seen. That's all the information I need. I quit paying attention to game reviews years ago - how I perceive a game is always completely hit or miss when compared to the general perception, and thus they're pretty useless for me except for the entertainment factor.

Ubi has released several trailers, extended gameplay footage, and there's even several interviews with devs who worked on the game giving background info on the concept and story. Its not like someone who pre-orders this is going in blind or something.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

Pretty much the same as predordering At brick and motar. Only difference is its going to automatically download while my PS4 is in standby mode when the system updates.

Well, not really. I would preorder physical for two reasons: preorder bonuses or a guaranteed copy on release date. With digital, the latter doesn't really apply, though I suppose an automatic download could be convenient.

Digital has been giving pre-order bonuses for a while now though. Plus it helps to balance what I'm going to buy. Though I tend to not pre-order and buy from my job so I can get a discount. I did pre-order destiny for a beta code.

So reviews are coming in and its looking like my fears for this game are true, its a beautiful and fun but shallow and easy game by most accounts. Scores are between 6-8 mostly, here's a few samples, the content of the reviews are more informative than the base scores.

Well at the very least I'll take the suggestion of Eurogamer and start the game on hard mode!

Well that's fine, but after the Aliens Colonial Marines debacle, I've been more careful with pre-orders. Just to clarify, I didn't buy Aliens. I will only preorder a game if it's from one of my favorite franchises from a trusted developer (mainly Nintendo). Otherwise, I'll wait a week for reviews.

Yeah I just might wait for a sale on this or some user opinions here. Too many good games coming up and need to save the money if I can. Still it looks beautiful and I really do want to play it but if the games a bit shallow then I can wait!

Roberr from Zeboyd games is saying the game shines at Hard diffuctlly a and called BS at the polygon review.

http://zeboyd.com/2014/04/28/a-review-of-arthur-gies-review-o...

Scores are about what I expected for a $15 RPG. It was probably always going to be shallow based on intent and ubiaofts other digital only games. They're great buy usually pretty short and sweet.

Uggh, I see Push Square gave it a 9 on the PS4 version. Its not rating badly at all actually at 85%for now for PS4 and 83% for the One. I wonder if the U will have unique uses of the gamepad and that could be the icing on the cake!

Yeah the reviews for this one are all over the place, lowest so far is 6 and highest is 8.5. The art is too good to pass up despite the lack of depth imo but i'll likley play it on hardmode out the gate based on what i've read.

Actually over on Metacritic the highest is a 100% and the lowest I seen in this post was a 5 from Polygon! Its tracking fairly well thus far.

Like I said above I hope the U will have a unique feature or 2 to bump the score a bit!

Cool, thanks for the update. One thing that's missing from alot of the reviews though is meaty co-op info, doesn't seem like anyone bothered to play the whole game co-op. Co-optimus have yet to post their review but will no doubt fill in the blanks.

Also hoping for some Wii U features and a decent co-op experience, if not i'll likely just get it for PC in the next Steam sale.
