'So we realize that a localized branch of EA may have been withholding review copies from jounalists unlikely to give Battlefield 3 a close to perfect score. That's annoying and the localized branch apologized and said that sort of thing hasn't happened before and wouldn't happen again.
Flash forward less than a week and it's happened again.
Arthur Gies' review of Battlefield 3 is largely positive. He highly recommends the multiplayer but disliked the single player and co-op modes. The game recieved a very respectable 4.5, but the review has a backstory that is rather interesting.
Posted to Tumblr, Arthur discusses the backdrop to his writing the review.'
