    @DUFFMAN5 I'll read the reviews and get a general gist. I can't seeing this getting crazy low scores (my 'Wonderstuff-sense' tells me 7-8/10). Everything I have seen ticks my boxes for open-world/zombie type games (not that there are many mind). I'll get it even if the it's not a 9/10 - I and your goodself appreciate those flawed gems.

    Thinking 6/7 myself. There is some gameplay aspects that people have been calling out as clunky for ages and the gunplay is meant to be serviceable at best.

    @DUFFMAN5 The late review embargo was a slight worry but some of Sony's big successes have had the same so i'm hoping its decent. ACG's verdict will do for me. Reviews are out just after 1PM.

    The review I saw this morning had it at 8.3, and must say it looked quite promising. A lot of the early clunky build is now supposed to have been addressed.

    All good chaps. I will await ACG. MrWonderstuff, I know mate, for many years now. I'm amazed we both still look so young ;)

    @Optimas It'll be heavily discounted if it reviews poorly.I'm optimistic though.

    Is anyone super excited about this or just cautiously optimistic? This thread only appeared a week ago which didnt suggest a lot of hype.

    In theory, this game should have me on the hook. Big fan of Sons of Anarchy and was a big fan of The Walking Dead. And yet I cannot muster up any enthusiasm for it. I am pretty burnt out on open world games - Horizon ZD, Far Cry 5 and RDR2 have a lot to answer for. Although Spiderman has not felt like a chore so far.

    This just seems very unremarkable. Perhaps I am being cynical but I see them marketing it right alongside Spiderman and God of War as top first party games. Is this going for assumed quality by association or is Days Gone genuinely on the same sort of level?

    I guess the reviews will tell all, but right now tackling another big open world is not top of my list.

    I'm in the super excited brigade, been looking forward to this since the first lumberyard showing at E3 in 2016 or so. Just ticks all the right boxes for me like the biker angle, zombies ( not zombies ) and the broken down world to explore.

    Saying that though even the recent showings have a decent amount of jank going on but I can forgive a fair amount given the right gameplay and setting. I don't think it'll be on the same level as Spiderman etc. just because of the level of polish in those first party games. It does though sound like it's on a much bigger scope being open world.

    Not convinced it'll review massively well but am personally fairly convinced I'll love it from what I've seen.

    Pure Playstation scored it 8.7/10

    Sure I'll get it but when it's closer to 30 quid.

    Looks like the definition of a 6 or 7 out of 10 that'll get 8 and 9s because it's an exclusive

    I'm not super excited but I'm not cautiously optimistic eiterh. I think it'll be decent at what it's trying to do, which is much more evolution rather than revolution.
    I like the look of the world and the swarm tech. Don't have much affinity to biking but if they spin the narrative around it I'm fine. I don't have an exceptional love for horses either but I don't dislike riding in Red Dead, etc.

    Embargo is up in 45 minutes I believe, for what it's worth.

    Intrigued to see how this title does.

    I think EG will give this a no score review, or 6/7 basically.

    ACG
    "wait for a sale/deep deep sale" That will do for me. I can give it a month or so, I'm sure it will drop.

    Sony will get a pass, they are the darlings after all. This on Xbox would have been reported and hated ten times more.

    Do Eurogamer have a history of not liking Sony exclusives or something?

    That's because Sony actually have other games.

    @Decks Never :)

    @Aaron.
    I totally agree mate. I have all the sony's and for the most part their exclusives are head and shoulders and more above MS. I just think MS have done a lot right in the years since the totally fucked up reveal and they do not get to much credit for it. Sony do a lot right but also a lot wrong.

    All good though :)

    I had an Xbox but didn't hold on to it because there just didn't seem to be anything coming out on it.
