3/5

"-Story is insipid
-Writing is embarrassing
-Later levels are lacking"


funny how you leave out the positives in a positive review.

EGM is the same publication that gave Final Fantasy X a 6...

Everyone can tell that something fishy is going on. DmC a 9.5? No way in hell. These are obviously paid off. This isn't some massive off-the-walls conspiracy theory, either. It's just obvious.


Uh huh. Sure.


You're seriously going to tell me that the game is worthy of a 9.5?

A game with writing this terrible? A game with watered down gameplay compared to its predecessors? A game with very basic platforming shoe-horned in? A game with lots of technical issues?

I'll understand a 7 or a 7.5, but a 9.5? From EGM? No way.

And it's Capcom. Of course they'll pay people off. They're no stranger to dirty business practices.

I never knew that a 60% is positive.

Or, you know, the guy who reviewed it actually liked it. Mind blowing I know!

50 is average. 60 is above average. You literally left out the parts that pop up on screen that are positive. That's called spinning and that's a logical fallacy.

I pointed out the negatives because I'm openly biased against this game. I'm not trying to hide the fact that I'm against it, obviously. And it's a mostly negative review, so I don't really care about listing the positives.

And no, I'm not one of the people that hated it from the start. I played the demo and it was by far the worst thing I have ever played on my PS3, which is why I started to hate it.

They gave Deus Ex: Human Revolution an 8.5.

Are you trying to tell me that this game is better than Deus Ex?

Again, Capcom isn't a stranger to dirty business practices, and after the Resident Evil 6 fiasco, you think they're going to let an already disadvantaged AAA title such as this one just rot? Of course not. They cannot afford even a few negative reviews. They'll pay them off. Anything to cure the game of its very negative stigma.

You aren't helping yourself.

Hmm... Openly biased.... I think that makes you less credible. At least crimson, if he caught the review by sealer first, would have posted both the positive and negative parts about the review. Good job at only giving half the story though. Makes you look good.
