IMO, watching the game for a long period is fine if you're just trying to get a sense of whether or not you'd be interested in trying it yourself. For a platformer at least, I wouldn't say it's a good substitute for actual experience when it comes to discussing its gameplay, though. You can definitely get the gist of the game's "feel", but not a whole lot more than that...

@NintenNess - The problem is I don't remember your grammar being so bad before. And grammar is more important than spelling, which I found out the hard way. People can easily determine a fractured word if the context is right, but it's waaaay harder to figure out what the context is if the words are missing, misused, or out of sequence.

Is it just me or did NintenNess' english suddenly go to pot out of nowhere?[OP Fixed his Grammar so...] And to me it sounds like it's only happening to people who are too rough with the circle pad and/or use their 3DS on a regular basis.

I've only played DKC2, while I've played all the old Mario games, and I have to say Donkey Kong has aged far, far better. It's not really my kind of game but the controls are so much better than Mario, where every level seems to be an ice level.
Even the original Mega Man is easier to play than SMB3 or SMW.

Agreed. Now excuse me while I lend you my flame shield. It stood up well the last time I the same thing you did.

I think the main point is whether or not it effects gameplay. I do think the faster paced a game is the higher fps it should be, I haven't seen gameplay footage of this game myself so I cannot comment whether the gameplay seems to be effected by it being 30 fps.

EDIT: I do think 60 fps is better for games, but that doesn't mean every game NEEDS it. if Azure Striker Gunvolt plays fine in 30 fps according to the reviewer then I don't see why he should bring it up.

To come up with a better analogy than the cheese analogy posted earlier, should reviewers not mention when a game lacks online multiplayer? Online multiplayer is a feature which many people don't care about, and while it provides a tremendous boost to some games, it isn't necessary for any game to function. Should people who care about online play be left in the dark by reviewers who don't care about the feature?

A review is not a list of technical features. If you're so desperate to know about the specs and framerate, there are websites specifically for that type of information. Same with Multiplayer - most games list what multiplayer features it has, if it has any at all, right on the box. I highly doubt that if they're left in the dark, it'll be anyone's fault but their own.

That was a really dumb analogy. Framerate makes a huge difference in how the game looks and plays. Cheese... doesn't.

See it doesn't though, the reviewer can't acknowledge an issue he didn't experience with the game.

Thus the cheese analogy, it's a completely tangential side to things that most people are unlikely to detect.

I don't think it's something that most people are unlikely to detect. Whether they care about it is another matter, but the difference is so enormously obvious that anybody who says they don't notice it is lying or being willfully ignorant.

Here's a good comparison video which shows how much worse 30 fps is than 60: http://a.pomf.se/zcaznc.webm If you can't tell the difference, Mr. Optometrist, then maybe you should find a different profession.

I watched that video. I did not notice a difference at all, except looking between two panels started to give me a headache. Heck, I didn't even realize there was supposed to be a difference until I saw the different FPS rates at the bottom. Where was there a difference? What was I supposed to be noticing? They both looked exactly the same to me. I've seen framerate differences. I've played games at 15 FPS. But obviously with a 2D game like that there'd be hardly a difference at all.

Agreed. To me, a shooter is about shooting things. With only a few exceptions (Usually the "shooter RPGs") when they try to focus on things besides shooting things, they aren't nearly as captivating.

You can do as many classes as you want...in fact, you'll have to do a little of each of the non-combat classes, unless you go full mage. It's less Fantasy Life and more Fantasy high school. The combat classes are the electives.
