Was this a con by Microsoft because they knew it would get bad reviews or are you okay with it? Opinions please.

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.

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.

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.

I did not know this.

This explains why the combat mechanics would be limited even for a PS2/Xbox game

The game isn't out yet...if reviews scare you away, you can transfer your preorder to another game.
Hell, it's about time.

I don't understand how people expected this to be a good game.

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. If you want to feel cheated, then blame MS for rushing the game to release

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.

honestly, I think that is an absurd and stupid thing to think.

why,

because console and game are not out yet so if they wanted to hide it from you they would put the embargo after it was out.

why are people this dumb to actually think there was some conspiracy because now everyone can drop their preorders.
