Gameplayer are reporting that the flaws brought up in one of Zero Punctuation's harshest reviews got to the developer, and changes are on the cards.
Even though Mr. Cohen has seen the review (and thinks it was funny which says a lot), I highly doubt it was just Yahtzee's review that brought about this change. Mr. Cohen clearly states that after the patches, they hope the game will be re-reviewed, not just by ZP, but by other reviewers. That seems to point to Yahtzee's complaints not being alone. He is one funny M-Fer. And his reviews are usually spot on.
his Uncharted review was way off
At 1.1, agreed that his Uncharted review was off because he went on an undeserved tangent. However that is the only misleading review he ever did of all those I saw from him. Nobody's perfect, overall he is the funniest reviewer by far.
Does one of the patches add t!ts to the buildings?
What if this happened to a console game, people wouldn't get the patches if they didn't have internet. This re-reviewing leads to more lazy game developers to try to put a unfinished game out there, and If a game does deserve to get ripped apart by the reviewers.
Yahtzee's reviews are the only ones I trust, and hes very funny, but his constant America bashing is really getting old. Plus, his claim that Uncharted is racist was just ridiculous.
there's nothing funny in zero punctuation.
it's just mental masturbation.speaking very quicly
and saying bizzare things doesn't make you intelligent
nor gives you any credibility.he is actually surfing on a media wave
thanks to shows like x-play.those kind of stuff can look cool on youtube or daily motion,but should not be taken seriously.what this is is a lack of talent.
This guy does not deserve the popularity he has. His reviews would have no merit on paper and rely on the same old "in joke" humour that makes webcomics so lame.
Hes the only reviewer around who has the balls to point out all the negatives in popular games like Halo 3 or Mass Effect. Every other reviewer out there is a microsoft whore, who's reviews are bought and paid for. You're probably a fan of Play magazine, where every game gets at least a 9.
Besides all the comments about the review, has anyone here actually played the game? I was planning on picking this up down the road, but once I saw other reviews...well, I guess you already know where I'm going.
I agree that re-reviewing doesn't exactly send the right message to devs, but if it gets the rare game fixed because of numerous bad reviews, than I'm all for it. Anyone remember Lair?
Its 2 am and all i know is that a couple pints and almost anyone can write a review. thats what makes yathzees' reviews great is that they ARE rants and people love rants don't they i know i do. anywho his reviews are usually spot on to a degree and i like someone who is not scared to voice their opinion . but i do feel like while uncharted did rehash alot of gameplay mechanics from other titles that the culmaination of the offering made for an outstanding game. so ask yourself this do the police work for you or do you work for the police? Figure that out and you know why myself and the po's don't get long,i suspect. If not then toss off and have a good night.
