How is an averaging of mid 80s on Meta/Opencritic an awful game? IGN had 3 high 9s in other regions and a 6.8 for US/UK hardly bargain bin fodder. It's more of a love/hate game like any Kojima game.

Having said that, it's a game I know I won't really like paying full price for so will wait. Like I did with MGSV.

This is only a guess, there is every chance the price can go up when the offer starts

Think I'm gonna wait til this hits half price
I'm a fan of Kojima's games but I would rather (potentially) be disappointed after spending £20 instead of £40
I’m not paying extortion amount for a mediocre game. By Jan probably be down to a £10.
Game is getting solid reviews on metacritic, which is great to see. Meant to be a slow burner, but worth the pay off! Good on Kojima! Think this will hold price a bit, so decent deal. Original IPs with unique ideas have my support!

I remember my brother buying MGS and watching him play. We had no idea of reviews or anything back in the day. Looking too much in reviews just dampens the experience although I can see why it is helpful.
Gotta say this does look very boring....but I’m still intrigued. Will wait until I can pick it up for £20 or less.
Despite the valid criticisms I'm still looking forward to the PC version, wish I didn't have to wait until next year. Be interesting to see whether prices drop quickly as it's clearly not for everyone.

EDGE and Giant Bomb haven't given it a score because they couldn't bring themselves to finish it.
Both played 40hrs+ and hated it.

I want to like it, it might be crap, but I guess there's only 1 way to find out.

Be careful of spoilers then, that's a long time to wait. Sony did fund most of the game so can't begrudge them for that but exclusives are a PITA.

No chance of that happening that early lol.

Gameplay is indeed the weak point of the game, delivering packages from A to B through rough terrain sounds more like a chore than a thing to enjoy.

Yeah the timed exclusivity is understandable, I'm just glad the port was officially confirmed. Somehow I've managed to avoid most of the spoilers for RDR2 and looking forward to playing that next Tuesday

I loved RDR2 - have a soft spot for old westerns so that helped, didn't mind the slow pace of it for the first half of the game. Enjoy!
Listening to Giant Bomb review now. Sounds like boring walking game:

It was pulled, I was told to get in touch with them at midnight when it goes 'live'. Not sure why the other GameCollection posts for the same sale are still active.
The price of this game will tumble fast and eBay will be flooded soon enough. Divisive games like this do not sell well. I think I'll wait before giving it a go.
Can’t wait for this, great price

I got the same
Managed to order a collector's edition from Game today but now says cancelled (even though I've had no email from them and my paypal still says pending)
Been watching a few reviews on this today and cant help but feel this might be a bit tedious as the first few hours are apparently typical Kojima storytelling cut scenes and slow burn. Good if you like micromanagement and non combat games but I think I'll probably swerve it. Good price for now though
Hope you all enjoy walking for hours

I certainly think this one is aimed at older audiences, I do like taking my time with games and find combat tedious at times, so quite looking foward to this.
Even the good reviews don't make it sound good. Just looks so boring.

Other than Resident Evil 2 that I completed recently, I've just become completely bored by any form of combat game - Ghost Recon Breakpoint then sent me over the edge and put me off Ubisoft titles forever.

I actually got in to Fallout 76, so figured I'll probably get into this one too.
Remember P.T, that's the game we should of had, not this walking simulator with Kojima and friends with their pointless cameos and endless cutscenes, I still honestly think P.T (Silent hills) could of been what this game won't be, a guaranteed hit.

Like all of Kojima's games, it will end up on PS Now. I pay about £1.60 a month for that. I can wait.
I must admit I haven't bought the game yet...I think I will hold out for a £30ish deal to come along.

But every time I watch videos of Death Stranding... I keep thinking, in MGS 5 you had an horse, in DS you are the horse.

The game though, looks excellent to me.... Like most geniuses, they tend to split the publics opinion, the real reviews will come much later from those that finish the game and have had time to fully mentally digest the overall experience.

You do get vehicles, check the Playstation Access video
Anyone that likes games that actually innovate check the (spoiler-free) Skill-Up review, and maybe even the Kotaku review. For the latter I saw the hour long length and was like no way I'm gonna watch this for long but was gripped all the way through - also low on spoilers.
If you wanna play a game that takes an age to get from A to B and only fetch quests then go for it , I will wait until it goes to £10 which won’t be long, just like MGS
I will stay well clear of this one until it hits the £10 mark.

I'd rather play a bad game trying to do something different (and possibly failing) than a mediocre but ultimately dull run of the mill game. I'm sure there's some Ubisoft or EA dross you can sink another 400 hours of nothing into instead.
Edited by: "ValueForMoney" 2nd Nov
I thought this game was action and thriller. But apparently its a ups delivery man and trying to avoid obstacles and enemies in a open field. That's hard but also, that's 40 hours minimum gameplay for delivering good from one end to another. Ps plus will let me review one day I guess
