No, because anyone who wasn't completely unreasonable in their hopes for Ryse would've known that it didn't have enough development time on X1 to even -be- a good game. One year ago it was designed for Kinect on Xbox 360. That's not enough transition time. --- Bacon. Playstation Network: Phange
No, because great reviewed games have had embargos like this, and the embargo didn't really change anything anyways. We'd still say the same things about the game if the reviews came a week earlier. --- Official member of the Omastar Club. Official Gen 6 First Route Generic Bird of the Pokemon X/Y boards
I can see how people who pre-ordered it based of the hype might feel this way. I still plan on enjoying the hell out of it, however. I'm very clear on my review stance, so I'm not worried about it. --- if (instr(buf,sys_errlist[errno])) /* you don't see this */
You're being melodramatic. Look at Mario 3D World. Ever since the 2nd trailer, it was obvious the game was going to be phenomenal, but Nintendo still put an embargo in place. It's a common practice that helps increase the hype and promotes impulse buying.

Embargos are there for all games. Most of which aren't lifted until the day before or the day of launch. I didn't expect Ryse to be a AAA game. While I am a bit disappointed in some of the lower scores, it's not making me want to cancel my pre-order.
