Its a total score. The pro's and con's don't give you the score. The pro's and con's were significant highlights of HL2. For any number of arbitrary reasons could have caused HL2 to earn 90%. Assuming its true (sorry I didn't read 270 plus replies).merc said:ya why would the game get docked so much just because it doesnt have a flipping deatmatch with it, i mean the games mods will more than make up for it
Well I guess sequels are supposed to build on the previous game, not cut large parts out.The Mullinator said:I don't think they would subtract 10% all becuase of no DM. How many games are there out there that were single player only and didn't have any problems with the marks?
Did the first Splinter Cell game get marks off because of a lack of multiplayer from anyone (especially anything like 10%).
I'm just saying if US gives them over 94% I have more reasons to belive in them. I bet they don't con the game because it doesn't have any MP like NL do.Torre said:This is just to clear things up, that this isn't a hoax, like 90% of this board "knew".
If you don't care about the NL score, don't f***ing read/post here.
You don't realize that it doesn't matter wether or not you think a game you've never played deserves above 90%.L337_Assasain said:This is for those of you who believe people are complaining that 90% is a low score for nothing. 90% is not a low score, in fact, it's an extremely good score, yet i think some of us (like me) have a hard time believing we've wasted alot of time waiting for a game that is just "very good", even if the score is low because there is no DM, it doesn't make it feel any better for someone to say what you've been looking forward to for the past year is just another good game . Valve has spent alot of time on this game, and i think it deserves better than a 90% (even though i won't b*itch about it). IMO HL2 deserves a 9 just for the entertainment the binks provided, and playing the games has got to be much more enjoyable
Thats why I had the smiley you know......that I was kidding around alittle.Torre said:It's very obvious then that us belgians are used to more critical reviews then UK or US reviews.
And i'm not telling you to do anything, it annoys me to see your post begin with "Who cares about NL?" ... Maybe dutch or belgian people do.
Think before you post.
Np, I better stop joking around before something serious happensTorre said:I'm still figuring out what you just said EVIL ...
Sry there Nex321, it's just some guys who replied in this thread make my blood boil, kinda didn't see the smiley.
Oh well, i'm going back to waiting.
Actually, this doesn't clarify anything for me. I still see no reason to believe any of you people. That is unless there's been something else previously in this topic. I really can't be bitched to wade through all this crap.flupke said:Stop f* around... Torre's post was just to clarify that Koba wasn't lying! Leave it now..
Oh yes, you mighty Belgians can certainly withstand them hardcore critical reviews! Better than us pussyfoot English speakers! God knows that we only live to be appeased by hearing what we want to hear!Torre said:It's very obvious then that us belgians are used to more critical reviews then UK or US reviews.
Gold.Think before you post.
Looks like the site went down.jAkUp said:Just reminding you guys, I have all the up to date news on both of the magazines... includes all currently released quotes, screenshots, whatever. If you don't have time to read through all the threads, here is the summary:
How am I supposed to take it?Torre said:Absinthe, I didn't mean to be offensive with what i said there, so you're just taking it the wrong way. The second quote wasn't even referring to you.
If I'm to believe the scans I've seen (which I usually do), then I don't really need any proof. In any case, a 90% is not going to stop me from buying the game...And no, there isn't any proof yet, but koba said he would show proof tomorrow. So after tomorrow, you can shout out that you all were correct if he doesn't.
hmm.. I read that as positive; it's not the end of the story meaning there will be hl3 and.. it's not ever stupid corriders like in doom3, so all in all it's really positive.EVIL said:why is the pcgamer score taking the points "ever stupid corridors" "the end of the story" as cons. I dont see the logic, they didnt complaint about corridors @ the doom 3 review. and if its the end of the story, then why is hl3 in the making?
PC Gamer do "It's" and "It's not" as opposed to pros and cons. Try putting "it's not" in front of those words!EVIL said:why is the pcgamer score taking the points "ever stupid corridors" "the end of the story" as cons.

It didn't say "Cons" necessarily. I'm confused by the "It's Not" bit.EVIL said:why is the pcgamer score taking the points "ever stupid corridors" "the end of the story" as cons.

It's saying "it's not: the end of the story". And reams of corridors are large cliche in FPS games, so I assume they mean it's a relief to not have to go through hundreds of corridors that look exactly the same again, and that it's good HL2 is avoiding this sort of thing.EVIL said:
