Do you think this game would appeal to Castlevania fans too, or is it truly just a Metroid clone?VideoGameCritic wrote:This would probably be an A+ on any other system.
This comment doesn't make much sense to me. If you think it's an A+, you should give it an A+! You seem to be implying that the Nintendo Switch is the Deliverer of A+ games, when really it's still just a 2-game system with a bunch of decent/mediocre games after that. Think long-term... I'm willing to bet that 5 years from now, Mario and Zelda will still be your only A+ games on the system. Sure, right now it'll look a little weird for you to already have three A+ games on the system - but who cares - I say go for it if this game is truly at that level.
Could not agree with you more but keep in mind that the VGC is extremely pro-Nintendo. The reality is that you have to take his grades on Nintendo games and knock them down a half or full letter grade. Mario Galaxy might be an A+ game (albeit and easy one) but Zelda? No flipping way....terrible ending, empty environment, no challenge, combat is a bore....etc, etc, etc.
That being said he has convinced me to buy this game but I got it digitally, I don't need all of that extra junk that comes with the physical copy.
First of all, the reason the game got a lower score on the Switch is because of the way its standard controllers detract from game play, which I absolutely agree with. I constantly, and I mean probably every couple minutes, was accidentally changing my weapon by touching the too-close right stick, and the lack of a directional pad on the left forced me to use the four buttons, which are NOT a substitute, and using the analog stick is almost impossible, especially once you gain abilities that involve double-tapping in a single direction. That being said, I'm not sure I agree with reducing the games score, especially when the pro controller IS available...
Second, the only way a person would think the VGC is "pro-Nintendo" is if that person generally DOESN'T like many of the games that alot of us like, games that Nintendo is known for, and so they assume he must be biased. I count his generally favorable opinion of many of Nintendo's staple franchises as evidence that Nintendo makes alot of good games, and the VGC recognizes them when he sees them.
