Re: Killzone Mercenary Reviews are in! Check 'em out!

I think IGN rated it a little low considering that the technical issues they complained about will be fixed with the 1.1 gig patch. Should have been at least a 9. But it is what it is and at least we now have a great fps that others should follow. If you have a vita, buy this game. Show the developers it can be done and we will buy.

Even so, it's still a valid complaint.

 


If there are issues with the game so bad that it requires a 1GB+ patch on Day one, that's just poor.

 

It also makes it quite annoying, since even people who go physical media only, still have to dedicate that 1.1GB just to this game.


And the ones that go digital, have to tack on 1.1GB to the 3.3GB game.

It's a shame to see this game get such low scores for poor reasons.

Well no one is reviewing it properly, really.


It's like they're failing to realize this is a HANDHELD game.


I think that's a bit of Sony's fault. They've basically touted it as a portable home console, and as a result, all their games are being compared to their console counterparts.

Why are reviewers comparing vita to home console, games?  How about judge it based on the platform it is on? Mercenary is by far the best shooter EVER on a handheld, these reviewers are idiots. The gaming media is atrocious.

That's good. A highly rated FPS is good for the Vita.

A 1.2GB Update on Day 1.

 

That's just awful. Good thing I bought a 32GB card, but still.

 

That means the 4GB card can't even hold the game (since the game is 3.3 GB without the patch)


I think it is actually a good thing, developers are not afraid of going past the memory capacity to give the best experience possible.
