Why do we care how others review the game?

I basicially look at review scores as a basis of what to look forward to.

Not every one is going to agree with everybody about the review score. That's just their opinion.

Now, relating to Nfl2k4... I saw a mini "cardboard pop out" advertisment thing at Gamestop today here in NM.

"I just rented nfl2k3, for the first time on xbox just to see how it is. After playing madden 2002 and 2003 a lot, the ESPN game is a great alternative. Ill be getting ESPN football this year"

Re: Why do we care how others review the game?

I bought 2k3 on Friday for $8 used. I played some Friday night and hated it. I didn't want to give up on it right away so I played lots today. After playing today, the game is awesome. If you are used to Madden, it takes a while to get the feel for the game. I plan on getting ESPN now and not Madden.

Re: Why do we care how others review the game?

Excellent point. Reviewers have thier own opinions on why a game gets a certain score. It is not a contest to see if ESPN can review better than Madden. Last Year it did and still didn't sell as much. Madden fans go way back with the game and it is hard to break them out of there ways. Me...I've played both ever since the Dreamcast days and I believe that Sega Sports has put out a better sim type football game and I will be getting ESPN Football this year.
Last year I played both...and Madden offered no challenge and it seemed like I was playing the madden from the year before. NFL2K3 was a bit frustrating but I wish I gave it more of an attempt. I am not a [censored you naughty boy] of either game. But from all the early coverage, I am impressed with ESPN and not so much with madden. Owner Mode...eh...All I need is franchise...

The word is overused and overated.
