Flores left a KZ2 amazon review without playing the game. EGMs review is short, lazy and out of line (score wise) with the rest of reviews. All known red flags. Going for web hits is a well known tactic, it's how these sites make advertising money. It's logical to assume this.

A 7, huh?
Has any known Xbot been rushed to the ER just yet?

AV club trolled UC3 hard. Look they aren't even an active game review site.
last review
D- Ninja Gaiden 3 03/26

doesn't take much to get on metacritic, but it's a good way to get traffic

Good for them, it seems they are the only ones who had the balls to be brutally honest about how terrible the Uncharted games are.

Actually many ppl here defendend the onion for that, back then.
Fanboys at NeoGaf were really having seizures when thanks to this review UC3's Metascore went down from 93 to 92.

You do realize that just because you say things like,

D E S T R O Y E D or S U B M I S S I O N

Doesn't mean that you actually did either of things.

when stacked up to Dishonored, Far Cry 3, and Black Ops II, Halo 4's campaign feels as empty and uninspired as its strong, silent protagonist.

I didn't know you could play the campaigns for Black Ops 2 and Far Cry 3 already?

"It's logical to assume this."

I do not disagree; conversely, why is it that an outlier that doesn't agree with your expectations is the only one mentioned as engaging in this behavior?

Donnie is the epitome of this inconsistency. Take for example this quote:

"Good for them, it seems they are the only ones who had the balls to be brutally honest about how terrible the Uncharted games are."

The AV club is the outlier in this case, yet in this example, because Donnie agrees with the review, they are the only honest website on the planet.

Not a big deal, I like both of you guys well enough, but there is an inconsistency here that has a certain stench of bias. :)

how can anybody take this review seriously?

RoadKing says:
I didn't read anyone freaking out. I do wonder how in the review he can compare the campaign to two games that aren't out themselves and come out later than Halo 4. I really don't think he has played the campaign for Black Ops 2 yet and especially not Far Cry 3.

and i didn't know Halo 4 was supposed to drastically change its own formula, Cause thats the only complaint in the review is that its formula is getting old?

Christ, I don't think the AV club is "the only honest website on the planet" I just agree with what they said.

Fair enough, I misrepresented what you said, but the insinuation is that their review is an honest one and one of the few that had the 'balls' to tell it like it is.

Just pointing out the inconsistency when we agree/disagree with outliers. I used your quote because it is in this thread, but we all engage in this behavior when it suits us.

You'd agree with any/all reviewers that crap on PS3 exclusives, regardless of who they are.

Trying to be the oddball generates the best hits.

"Trying to be the oddball generates the best hits."

A fair statement by itself; however, should the oddball be the one review site 'who had the balls to be brutally honest' we must also agree that their motivation is for 'the best hits'.
