^^^ Skim thru this link. it shows every review in a quick summary with score, no spoilers. as you can see most reviews give it high 9's

Current Metascore — 84/100, based on 71 reviews (positive: 59, mixed: 11, negative: 1)

Majority of reviews are 9's and 10's and a couple cry babys who threw in 3/10s and 6/10s brought the average down

I read both the positive and negative reviews - you can't just settled down with one review and take it as gospel. you have to understand the story from both sides.

overall the concerning issue is that even '10/10' reviews are criticizing the bland and awful gameplay loop. This may be the best case example of 'The Emperor's New Clothes' situation playing out in real life because clearly people are gargling kojima's pseudointellectual balls.

The concerns Iíve seen in regards to the gameplay loop is that its unlike most other games, not everyone is gonna like it and its one of the most indepth and robust systems in a game ever.

I think, and I believe this to be very clear, that everyone focusing on the handful of bad reviews is evident that people are placing more value in reviews that support their preconceived notion of this game than the others. Today has been literally confirmation bias gold. People talmbout ďbut no review explicitly states that its a fun gameĒ like how many games 9/10 and above arent fun?

This is just like Red Dead last year, Kojima just like Rockstar has gaming fans that hate them because they feel their games are overhyped yada yada and these lames have dedicated their lives to slander everything released from both camps, even if its straight fire. Once I seen n*ggas say RDR was wack because you cant skip the looting animation, I knew what time it was

I’m waiting until it goes on sale or hits PSNow. I’m a Kojima fan and enjoy story driven games...but this is a bit much to ask for $60 lol.

Might wait for more “real world” reviews to come through. Most of the
Reviews I’ve read have been kind of pretentious. Like when people feel they have to love a new Kanye album or David Lynch Movies.

A game solely carried by kojimas name. This game looks awful but has an interesting story.

How many times do people need to get tricked by cool cinematics in a trailer?

Remember The Order? No Mans Sky? The list never ends.

If they cant show you decent game play, its because it doesnt exist. This sh*t is not hard to figure out.

3 days left until we get to play and enjoy this game and Xbots are forced to find another narrative to slander this game.

I got my money on them complaining about the coop structure, what about yall?
