    I can't believe Gamespot gave First Light a 6.0...

    I finally got a chance to sit down and play it for more than 30 minutes....and it's just good fun.

    There might not be a lot of meat or missions story wise (not sure, but I heard it's only about 5 hours) but theres a friggin gang gun fight every time I turn around.

    And yes....you're suppose to fight them. You don't have to for the story...at least not the part I'm in...but at the point I'm in right now I'm on one side of the gang war....so theres just random gamplay filler. Not crap filler....filler that actually has you doing mechanics and using your powers and whatnot....gameplay.

    I love this game....it's just as much fun as Second Son. And so far the story is great. The dude you meet at the beginning really successfully is creepy and off-putting.

    Dont listen to the media anymore. They have proven themselves untrustworthy countless amount of times. I have hated games the media has given a 10 and loved games they have given a 5 so $#@! them and dont let them make you enjoy the game any less. I thought it was decent by the way.

    Have to agree with this, the games industry has become too 'high brow' for the games people actually play.

    I just pushed through to the end of Last light last night. IGN gave this game a 7.7/10, on the flip side, they gave Tomb Raider a whopping 9.1/10!

    Personally, i'd switch those scores around:

    TR was entirely generic; weak story, weak atmosphere, VERY weak characters, with decent gameplay.

    Last Light was breathtaking, and exhilarating! Very strong atmosphere, interesting characters, decent story, very strong gameplay!

    Reviewers seem to pander to their consumers. If the consumers have high expectations of a game, "hey, we'll vindicate their excitement!". The only time they actually stick their neck out is when they know it's something they are truly safe in doing so - ie, Aliens Colonial Marines.

    Gamespot got it wrong the game is actually a 1/10.
    Sucker is doing their best, let them deal with it buy addressing any criticism with their next title.
    You just enjoy yourself

    I'm sure it's the infamous dlc. I doubt last light got that low of a score. Just thinking out loud. I have no idea. Haven't looked then up.

    I enjoyed first light more than second son. And getting to play an infamous game with out the good/evil mechanic made me realize I much prefer the game with out it.

    My bad, i was merely trying to point out how useless "Reviewers" are nowadays.

    This probably got such a low score because it is DLC. ergo, they have some stupid justification as to why DLC can't score similarly to the retail game...DLC should be scored as a subset of the fullgame. Not as a standalone full game release (though i understand this also applies as such).

    I've seen countless reviews where the reviewer says "It doesn't add much to the retail game".....no $#@!! it's, at most, an extension to the story using the same base mechanics. removing points because its the same game smacks of....elitism??? entitlement??? i don't know....

    I tend to only use Eurogamer, PC Gamer and Rock Paper Shotgun for my reviews. Stick to ones that you think are strict and ones you read frequently. Then you can usually gauge it better.

    Better yet just watch user reviews if you can wait.

    I never listen to reviews, if I like the look of them I play them, if they turn out to be $#@! then I shall either complete them and sell them or just sell them straight away, the only critic you really need to listen to is yourself, oh and PSU reviewers obviously

    gamespot loves to troll the fans, who refreshes the page 10 times to see if any negative comment about their fav game.

    Listen to IGN not Gamespot. Gamespot went down the tubes years ago since the Gerstman fiasco. These days they pull $#@! like this to grab attention.
    Trophy-licious!

    Not a bad score, its above mid way, if it got 3 or 4 then you think that game must be crap.

    yeah I stopped going by reviews like that after I saw a low score for Darksiders even though I loved that game!

    I tend to go for youtube reviews now

    Haters gonna hate. On the other side of things, PSU has reviews that generally are rated higher than other around the web. Its just like, an opinion man.

    I honestly would have given it an 8. Other than it being short, I had no issues with it, and I enjoyed it. Replayability isn't really there after you get all the trophies (which aren't too hard to get). I think it is worth the 11.99 I paid for it though.

    I don't always trust user reviews. AngryJoe gave Sleeping Dogs a 6/10 but I really enjoyed the game.

    I just finished it today. I wish it were a bit longer, but playing as a Fetch and using her neon powers to cause havoc is a lot of fun. Really enjoyable piece of DLC.

    That is an aspect that I think a lot of reviewers overlook. Value for the money.

    Yeah that's probably one of the most important aspects of DLC nowadays, the DLC they gave for Borderlands 2 for example was amazing

    I only watched the walkthrough vid, but i think it's much better than a 6. The graphics are pretty damn good for dlc content. Gamespot may opine that it's a 6/10, but i wouldn't agree. In any case, i've always taken reviews just as a reference but never as the end all be all.
