Test Drive Unlimited 2 Review Plagiarized

StrengthGamer: "...I take my job very seriously.
When writing a review on a video game I truly take pride in my work... So when I read a review - then read another review - and notice they are the same, I get angry.

That's exactly what David Garfield of the Examiner did to Oli Welsh of eurogamer.net. Below you will find both articles side by side for your reading pleasures." (PC, PS3, Test Drive Unlimited 2, Xbox 360)

Are you sure it's not the same person as a ghost writer? It's common practice in the media industry. Of course it could also be a complete rip off, just saying...

What did you expect from "the Examiner". The articles posted here are either "Quick look at the screen shots only we and the rest of the press are allowed to show", or useless new trivia.

I'm not sure what's more pathetic --Examiner for the plagiarism or Strengthgamer for sticking their nose into other people's affairs and trying to get hits from it.

Worry about your own crappy articles before playing watch dog for everyone else.

David Garfield already IS famous morons!

Watch "The Suitcase" which hit #1 on amazon on demand, and invite him over, he'll have a pizza cutter waiting for you too!

Amazing.

People, remember the name - David Garfield

That's: David Garfield

DAVID GARFIELD

Hey, David Garfield, now's the time to change your name, get a sex change and move to another country. Your reputation is RUINED.

that's hilarious

You dicks, it's the same peeps

It was removed from the examiner site - lol
gameguidedog  +   1264d ago
It was not removed, it was reposted with the correct article. The original 'attempt' thing was a source by a 'contributor' and examiner.com and gameguidedog had no intention of posting it. The actual review has been posted. Glad you all had some fun. And everyone can remember David Garfield! That's a good thing, he's a 'dick' in the latest movie with Mark Wahlburg's brother: (as well as the writer, producer, and director, and no he didn't copy it either):

I use a mobile device - sometimes links don't work but when I clicked onit, it said the article didn't exist

@gameguidedog IS DAVID GARFIELD!!!

Stop replying to him! It's David himself!

Read the comments on the strengthgamer article and you can see for yourself.

This guy is a joke!
