Why is this game raised #2 on Most Popular games list and why Gamespot keep bulling readers like that?

Shame on you Gamespot you 've got no credibility at all.

@gabeb-What are you talking about regarding credibility and "bulling?" Do you understand how that list works? Low-scoring reviews often receive a lot of traffic, and the most popular rankings are determined by the number of people visiting the page, and are not determined by GameSpot. It is akin to the throngs of people that turn up to gawk at a car wreck, and is very common on most game review sites. People are curious about bad games, particularly when not a lot of games are coming out.

In other words, readers choose what games show up in the "most popular list," not GameSpot. Keep that in mind before spouting silly fictional accusations that have no basis in fact, but are made up in your head.

Kevin and GSpot would not review a game poorly, then turn around and hype it up on the list like that. That's pretty contradictory when you think about it.

I don't think anyone will ever realize the lists are made by HITS, not by GameSpot putting them up

Well Kev is rite. There isn't a lot of games coming out now and so if there is a review on one (mainly PC) then everyone wants to know why it scored good/bad just caus their looking for anything new. So I can see why there areso many hits on this game just caus of this.
