I apologize if this seems needlessly hostile or anything, I just see a lot of people who seem to be under the belief that video game critics don't actually care about their work.
I had 2 or so paragraphs to give my opinion on this, but I can sum it up in a simpler manner. Nintendo did a dumb, the controls are forced, and not being able to change them is really crappy. I exaggerated a fair bit in my original post. I did that cause most reviews I saw went on a control bashing spree and didn't talk about anything else in the game. Of course, if you can't work with the controls, that's all your opinion and review will probably be about. And that's perfectly fine, that's what a review is. We go for that writer's review. The ones who scored it higher had time or whatever else to learn the game and have fun. Those who couldn't cope with the controls slammed it. Simple as that.Sheo_Dagana said:I agree, it seems that people don't understand what's involved as far as game reviews are concerned, or they read only as far into the review as it takes to find something that they disagree with and immediately go into attack mode. Hyperbole gets thrown around in a lot of reviews and people start making assumptions.
My opinion for a "review" of my own is that there's a perfectly fine game in there. It just takes time and practice, cause the learning curve is steep. The controls are awkward at first, absolutely. But they can help you make shots you can't with a Star Fox 64 style control scheme, and I find that has merit, which is probably why Nintendo and Miyamoto made that choice. Not everyone is gonna be ok with that though, and that's what makes me sad more can't enjoy Star Fox Zero because of it
Edit: Hah, I did around the same amount of content anyways. This is a lot more clear cut and cohesive though, so hopefully I got my words out a lot better this time
