Yeah, I think it did deserve a better rating, but with their decision to screw over early adopters, it is bad karma.

3 and a half? I guess it is opinion, but I am playing this game so much and I am still loving it. It deserved much better.

Yes, it bears much replay value if you are into this genre. MS basically improved their core game in almost every aspect. Of course it is more of the same, but delivered in a much nicer package. I don't regret my purchase at all.

It's also hilarious that Rovio puts out the basically same exact game over and over with Angry Birds and gets 5 star reviews every time, but Minigore 2 improves upon nearly every aspect of the original and gets a 3.5.

I give Minigore2 4/5, and God of Blades 4/5 as well.

The Minigore 2 review by TA doesnt make sense, just as the God of Blades review did. Minigore 2 got all the high praises, and the ending that says it's more of the same, and it got a 3.5.

Sure it's pretty much the same, but the slight improvements and the fun gameplay (even if it's the same) deserves at least a 4.

Then again, reviews are all opinion.

I think the fact that they focused on Zombies this time around made the game look more like fishing for attention to the reviewers. Everybody adds Zombies to sell more copies. Its a stupid trend, really.

Except mini gore was always about beasts and ghouls or monsters
