Xbox One - Launch Games Review Predictions

   0
It's happening.  The X1 is less than a week from hitting the shelves and gracing our homes.  Starting Monday the first reviews will trickle in from all the major websites for a handful of games with more being released as the week progresses.  I thought this to be a prime chance to give my opinion on how well (or poorly) the "big four" will do.

Forza 5

Forza 5 will bring in reviews in the 8-9 range.  Anything less and I would be completely surprised judging by everything we know about it so far.  Tried and true, if you're a car guy or gal than Forza is the launch title for you.  It may also be the best scoring launch title the X1 has to offer.

Dead Rising 3


Earlier last week, Digital Foundry put out this article stating that DR3 has serious frame-rate issues.  But, this has now been widely ignored due to a couple of factors.  A) They never once say their tests were done on a release build of the game.  They state "the build we saw".  B) Recent videos from websites like IGN show DR3 running without any issues even in online multiplayer.  Of course, all of this is just hearsay until official reviews come out and we have the chance to play it for ourselves.  I'm predicting 7-8s for DR3, assuming it runs as planned.

Killer Instinct


The new KI is going to be something of a wild card.  From looking at it, it appears to be a very well done fighter and the dojo mode looks incredibly in depth.  Probably the most detailed tutorial in a fighter that I've ever seen.  If the gameplay holds up, KI should enjoy scores in the 7-8 range.

Ryse

The most unknown of all the X1 has to offer on launch day and the one that I think everyone is on the fence about.  I'm not even going to try to predict the score on Ryse.  It's far too up in the air.  I went ahead and pre-ordered it, I'm expecting a decent amount of fun with a relatively short single player game that is basically a fantastic looking tech demo.  That's how I'm going to treat it and if it turns out to be a great game, I'll be very happily surprised.  I expect "meh", except for the visuals.  Notice his facial expression in the gif?  If nothing else, Ryse is incredibly slick on the visual side.

What are your predictions on these and the other X1 games?

EDIT:
While I truly do feel very bad for all the PS4 owners that are having hardware troubles, I couldn't help but laugh at this.  Seriously though, when I get a PS4 I really hope it doesn't do this.  Hell, I'm praying to the gaming gods every night that the X1 doesn't have any trouble.
