Luckily the game is published by SouthPeak in the US so I don't have to worry about supporting the TopWare imbeciles.

I still wouldn't buy it though. Seeing these kinds of things makes me sick, eventhough it has a different publisher.

Edit: I think you still support TopWare by buying the game since developer of the game, Reality Pump Studios, is an in house developer for TopWare.

Nah Sales in the US and UK will all go to Southpeak and Sales in the EU go to Topware :)

Your Supporting Reality Pump (the devs) if u buy the game annywhere :)

Well I really want this game, and I really want to support the dev, so I may end up getting it anyway. Shit sucks but I wouldnt have been anymore likely to have gotten it if it had a few more 8.5's anyway

I remember hearing about Ubisoft doing some serious arm twisting when it came to reviews, but all of that news and information suddenly dried up shortly after it was first reported.

I wonder why that i$...

looks like someone cant handle some opinion...

Masterchef20072826d ago

if the game is terrible people have the right to know. That is why i am against devs doing this. I can understand that there might be one or 2 reviews written by fanboys but to me whats legit is what the majority of people think about the game. Well except for call of duty i dont understand how that game got such high scores if it was plagued with problems from the start.

Im with you, but the thing is, this is not a terrible game.

Its about a 6.5-7.

I'd say slightly above average that fans of the genere should check out, but probably nobody else.

Reviewers may have had some bias built in from the last game, or they thought it was a blank check to give a game with some press behind it a bad score because its kinda fun...

That sounds about right for a score & description. I remember when Blue Dragon had around that same score frame, and people go "omg it's horrible".

Reviewers need to use the full scale, not this top half one where anything after a 7 apparently equals bad. To be honest, I had bias as well from the first one, because I still can't get out of my head that they had printed on the box of a quote saying It's Oblivion on crack basically.
