Eidos has stated there is no truth to claims made by British industry insider blog, RamRaider, that it has been fixing Batman: Arkham Asylum review scores.
Actually even if it were true, that would be the least of eidos' "cheating crimes." Publishers often only want the good reviews to be posted early, and it's not that they are asking outlets to give it a 9 or what not, but rather, if it does get a high score, you can publish, otherwise not. It is up to the outlet itself to decide whether they want to cheat in order to get the early coverage or not. I'm not condoning the practise, but it's been done plenty of times before by plenty of other publishers.
Kane and Lynch all over again? I hope not as I have high hopes for this game. Anybody else think the batman character was modeled after george clooney?
who will get fired their review this time?
This is nothing new.
this game doesnt need paid reviews and all that, its gonna be awesome
Sounds like the same thing that happened with Tomb Raider and Kane And Lynch. Good that Eidos is being wiped out by Square Enix.
... their track record suggests otherwise. I'm hoping this claim is false, because I want this game to be good. But it seems like this is playing out kinda like Tomb Raider Underworld did. While TR wasn't at all bad, it certainly wasn't great. And they knew it. This could be the same thing all over again. *sigh* and dammit, no.
I would have believed this since it happened before, but since i played the demo at Gamestop, I would disagree. The game plays amazing and the fighting system is so well done and is brutal as well. I'm def picking this game up, I would suggest you guys do the same. If you have not played the demo go to your nearest Gamestop, you would not want to put the controller down. I want my fix of the dark bat.
man you are my hero i had this game on pre order but after reading the article i was getting scared if the game maybe will suck but now you gave my hope again bubles fore you
Except there isnt a necessary correlation between the quality of the game and wanting to fix reviews . Especially with some magazines and sites tendancies to once everywhile tone down a good game's score , just to appears edgy and rebel . After everything they've done i believe them capable of that , even with good games . Anyway the game has convinced me enough eons ago
in the trailers i've seen i'm very impressed with the atmosphere of the game.
... I'm NOT buying this game unless Jeff Gerstmann says it's worth buying...
