Why Do We Need Video Game Reviews?

Don’t be shocked by Thompson’s first line: “BioShock Infinite is the worst game of the year.” As a stand-alone lead, the line might seem like a grand and original statement. It really isn’t. Richard Goodness, a lesser-known critic, said this about Bioshock Infinite in a July article titled “I Miss ‘Interactive Movies’”: “Bioshock Infinite is perhaps the worst videogame I have played all year.” On top of this, GameSpot recently ran its second review of Bioshock Infinite. Written by Tom McShea, this review gave Bioshock Infinite a 4 out of 10.

I say you shouldn’t be shocked by any of this, but if you’re used to mainstream video game reviewing, I can’t blame you if you are shocked or, at the very least, inquisitive about the sincerity of negative Bioshock Infinite reviews.

Umm because they don't give us demos for every game. I'm pretty sure that if they gave us demos of all games, a lot of games wouldn't be purchased by very many. A lot of us need reviews to see if our hard earned money should be spent on the game.

Exactly. I mean. What's so hard abour making a generic demo level to test out gameplay?
