Seriously! Have you played it? Star Fox Zero was an awesome game, those that didnt like complained it was the graphics and the controls was innovative like Wonderful 101.Star Fox Zero: Seriously bad. Though unknown if it had to do with Platinum or simply Nintendos meddling.
They developed Astral Chain, which was awesome. it like many people didnt play that GAME. If u havent GET A SWITCH and play it. It was unique and FRESH!Great summary. I forgot about a lot of their titles. I've had discussions with friends who swear by Platinum but as your post outlined there are more middling titles than great. I'd argue even most of the good to great games have something about them that diminishes Platinum somehow. Wonderful101 was extremely short. Nier: Automata gets a lot of deserved praise but it's greatness isn't really in the gameplay and is more attributed to Yoko Taro and the amazing soundtrack. With MGSR they inherited a lot of assets and worked under the direction of Kojima. Vanquish had good gameplay but wasn't for everyone due to how Japanese and campy it was.
I am still a fan of them and will always be interested in learning more about whatever they work on. But it's clear to me that they work better with outside direction or at least a clear idea of what the game is supposed to be.
Exactly.I will defend Star Fox Zero till the end... that game is good, it was a very faithful reboot of Star Fox, with elements of Star Fox 1, 2 and 64.
I would get it, but getting a switch to play a game is something I'm not looking forward to, price is too high and controllers are crap.They developed Astral Chain, which was awesome. it like many people didnt play that GAME. If u havent GET A SWITCH and play it. It was unique and FRESH!
Even the games they make that are good are a disappointment of sales in this industry
Like how people said THEY SHOULD GIVE STAR FOX TO THEM and see what happened. the game BOMBED even though it was an awesome game. Pls released it for the Switch and see it do Well.
They got canned from the recent granblue fantasy rpg game.
Nah I'm good man Bayonetta 3 looks like a gen 7 developed game so why should I be surprised about anything at this point.That's a weird and very opaque situation. The game's always looked good but its been delayed and delayed and the art-style has clearly been completely revamped over the course of development. Then of course there's the other big Cygames project which again seems to be stuck in some kind of development hell...
Like with Scalebound, these are partnership situations so its only fair to look at the performance of the other party as much as Platinum's contribution. Arguably you should blame the publishing party primarily as they are the senior, dominant member.
Yup.Too many bombs, low sales, not enough money, and not enough time/talent to put on games.
Without any breakout success, they're dying slowly.
Thanks Jennings.Transformers Devastation
A great action game with authentic voices are inspired art style that came out after Bayonetta 2.
Really? Who replaced them?They got canned from the recent granblue fantasy rpg game.
Idk why this comment made me laugh but I agree overall. I used to be opposed to the idea but, PG is one of the only devs still making Japanese action games. Maybe I’m crazy but, I think if they have the budget and time to actually make what they want, they could be top tier.Yeah but come on, Platinum has no one to blame but themselves. The Wonderful 101 is a really weird game that looks completely out of step with the mass market and sold accordingly.
I'm surprised they are still around, someone should acquire them, give them a proper budget and not greenlight completely stupid projects.
No doubt. They really shoulda just stuck with Capcom; they seemed to be on their way so to speak. Wtf happened?Yup.
Unfortunately upon reflection they’re a mediocre dev despite a strong start. Taken as a whole, most of their games are garbage unfortunately.
Bayo 1 and Vanquish were great, most of the other stuff is shite if we’re being honest with ourselves.
