There are certain games you should know to not take Sterling's opinions seriously on. The Dynasty Warriors games, for instance, are some of his favorite games and many get absurdly high scores. This is another similar situation. He is a massive Ninja Theory fanboy. He even wrote a scathing article discussing how the gaming community at large was essentially wrong for not buying hundreds of thousands of copies of Enslaved, despite it being a very mediocre title.

His mind was already made up on DmC the second he found out who was developing it. Add to this, his incessant need to stir up controversy, and the notable backlash with this title, and his plan was pretty much laid out for him.

And Resident Evil 6 is an objectively awkward product. Deal with it.


Jim's mostly just a clown; he yells hoping someone will notice him like a child flailing his arms for attention. I leave him to rot in the garbage dump known as Destructoid. Though, like most narcissists he instead takes people being annoyed with him as just not understanding his genius thus why he never tries to improve his attitude or methods.

Still, his opinion should hold some weight; just don't view his (or anyone else's) review as a be-all, end-all score of the game.


Why should his score hold any weight when he blatantly contradicts himself?

There are no unbiased game reviewers out there. As someone else stated, there's no equivalent neutral source for reviews as there are for other media. They're all either owned by vendors or depend on advertising income online.

Contrary to popular belief, opinions can be, and often are, wrong.

Claiming to be an official ____ of a board is officially dumb

Was gameinformer ever consider reputable?


Once upon a time they were on their way to being decent. But then they started turning tricks for the industry and never looked back. The end.

They always deduct points for RPGs made in Japan. So it actually got an 8 or 9 without the anti-JRPG filter applied. Rejoice!

Okay now this is the first review to really annoy me. I've had gameinformer mailed to my house since like 2006. I mean I sort of expected it since lately there's been a drop in quality but come on....

When the boss battles suck
The story is poorly written
The combat is watered down from previous games

and all of this adds up to a 9? Good to know, standards on what makes a good game just keep getting lower. I think most pros would even agree this game isn't a 9.
