97 way too much for a game having performance issues across the board. DF confirms that game is poorly optimised on all platforms.

 

I know its a good game but it deserve 90 Metacritic not 97

 

Play on VRR enabled display. Problem solved.

 

I don't have VRR but am not noticing frame rate cause am absorbed in game.

 

Outside some technical issues aka frame rate and pop in, game is feature complete. I would even call it polished, perfect like you expect from big budget Japanese games.

so who decides what constitutes a small technical issues? 
Elden ring issues are quiet big which affects the experience.. no way can you rate a game 10/10 with this many technical shortcomings.. 

 

 

I think it's a subjective question. When BoTW launched, it had some frame drops that affected the performance but was universally praised. 

If the performance issues do not hamper the experience, then I think it's okay (leaving out the PC release here which seems to be a mess).

lol. I have the game. I have played it. There are loads of videos on YT of people pulling off magnificently timed moves on it. So, I for one, can't seem to figure out why you would call ER issues quite big. And yes, I dont know either as to who decides if something is affecting their experience or not. But thats my point - if it doesnt affect you, its not a big deal. it will get fixed. keep that out of the scoring system. mention it, but dont make it part of scoring as that can always get fixed.

Games should be reviewed on exactly the patch that retail audience will experience on Day 1,2,3. 

Plain and simple. You shouldn't have one patch for review that is working fine and then one on release date that doesn't represent review version.

I played the game and I refunded it…

people Buy games based on reviews, it’s the duty of reviews to include performance into review scores… it might be a excellent game but 10/10 it’s not with so many performance issues.. 

Next people will say don’t rate BF’s based on technical issues that will be fixed in a year and that should not affect review scores..

1. You are saying include is as part of score. I am saying mention it without making part of score. In both scenarios, as a buyer you do end up getting the picture. 

2. In cases like BF and CP, many reviewers refused to rate or review the game and that is a better approach imo.

Buy new expensive tv for Elden ring. Good advise. How about they fix their sh*t and improve their engine

That’s what DF has been advising all the SX owners since last one year now. 
 

If one wants better performance than PS5 buy an expensive VRR TV. 
 

But I do agree that Sony has been super unfair to ppl who already have or can afford to buy a VRR TV at this point. 
 

Elden Ring’s superior performance on PS5 with the added benefit of VRR for these ppl would have been the flawless experience ppl wanted. 
 

I hope they Atleast add it by the time I decide to buy as I’ll buy both simultaneously most likely.

I love how the people bashing Elden Ring are the ones who haven't played the game. Elden Ring sits at the top of steam charts with 823,527 concurrent players today. I wonder how that is possible if the game's performance is so bad that its unplayable. :lol:

 

Yes, you might notice a few frame drops if you run a frame counter and run around with your eyes glued to the counter. But the game runs well enough to not deter from the gameplay experience at all.

Elden Ring's performance on ps5 is not superior by any measure. Both platforms have fluctuating framerates and both operate in the same range. 

VRR this VRR that but VRR is not going to fix dips of 10-15 fps. It'll make it smoother and avoid tearing but the inconsistency will still be jarring. 

Having inconsistent framerate is a binary question. You can't have one being more inconsistent than the other. 

It's not a case of XSX dipping more than PS5. The problem is that the fps never sticks to 60. It's always fluctuating.

If you play on PC, maybe your monitor has freesync? 

 

Those are common and not expensive.

When the games are so good, no one cares about dropped frames.

I find this 10x true for Elden Ring right now

 

it can be a crap looking game but I am so swept up in the game that I could play it at 720p 20fps. I have to consciously keep track of stopping because I keep playing too much

WTF are you talking about. 
 

Every tech reviewer has laid out results that clearly tell PS5 version holds up a higher average Framerate. 
 

Resolution too but only marginally so that doesn’t matter. 
 

DF as usual said to go with SX only if one has a VRR display or else stick with PS5. 
Only if PS5 implemented VRR in time for this game it would have given much better results in comparison to SX running on a VRR display.

Unstable framerate is unstable. That's what he means. 50 fps vs 55 fps will not feel very different.

 

Sony should implement VRR ASAP for Elden Ring.

Fluctuating frame rate is bad regardless of average being higher or lower. It would've been better if ps5 held to 60 better than xbox but that doesn't happen. 

Right now both platforms cannot hold the fps consistently. Both are bad.

Lmao 

 

PS5 without VRR > SX without VRR 

PS5 without VRR < SX with VRR 

Hypothetical PS5 with VRR > SX with VRR 

 

Only if Sony could make it happen in time. 
 

A higher inconsistent Framerate is not equals with a lower inconsistent Framerate. 
& It’s not really as hard to fathom as you are making it to be.

I think you're being daft by not understand this. I'm currently playing on ps5 FYI. 

It doesn't matter if the framerate is constantly jumping between 52,53,55,57 or 50,51,53,55. Both of them look and feel bad. Mathematically one may be better than other but none of them look or feel better than the other for practical purposes. 

It's like a musician playing on an inconsistent tempo.

i didn’t realise people cannot complain about performance issues even if they are playing the game… we bought the game, it doesn’t mean we can’t complain about the performance
