Gamespot Review is Up Now

I figured the game would get scores 8-9 for most reviews. That's how NT's previous games reviewed despite their flaws.

It shows how sad gaming journalism has become. EGM is known for being very harsh on most games. This game, a 9.5? No way in hell. Everyone can tell that something fishy is going on.


Like I said, the guy who reviewed it then decided to strawman all the critics by using arguments that aren't really used anymore. That's one guy I've blacklisted

are people just going to say paid off. Hell there was even one guy who gave a vid review that was positive about the game im guessing hes paid off somehow to.

Sessler actually tends to speak his mind about most things. Hell, he had the balls to give Fable 2 Game of the Year. A 3/5 sounds like a fair score to me.

As for Gamespot, they lost all credibility with me ages ago. They could give this game a 1 or a 5 or a 7 and I still wouldn't care because it's Gamespot.

Gamespot fired Jeff over him not giving Kane and Lynch a high score... Like Eidos PAID them to...

Yeah, this does take money for reviews.

The EGM review just BAFFLES me since he says the story is complete junk. Plus the critic makes a complete ass of himself in the comments by playing strawman.

Gametrailers gave it an 8.5. I find it hilarious how they could rate that junk storyline better than DMC4's


From what I've seen from EGM they seem like idiots. I read one of their MGR previews and the guy would call the game either Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance or Metal Gear Rising: Vengeance lol.

I don't accuse game journalists of being bought...I accuse them of being gutless cowards who cry crocodile tears when they're called out on their spinelessness and slanted views. It's gotten REALLY bad in the last few years

Wait.
This thing gets a 9.5?

And they rated Human Revolution an 8.5

Yes, this definitely reeks like "Thank you Capcom" to me.

And @ ff94:
No. But websites giving this thing THAT much praise when clearly superior (in every way) games receive a whole point less and the review is filled to the brim with strawmen, yes that is a bought review.
Capcom is very good at this.
