Dillon's Rolling Western Review (Modojo)

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Even the biggest Nintendo hater has to admit the 3DS eShop is on a roll, with quality titles like VVVVVV, Mighty Switch Force! and Pushmo. It appeared Dillon's Rolling Western would join this highly regarded group, but sadly, this latest experiment is all over the place, unfair and mind-numbingly repetitive.

The story is too old to be commented.

Funny to me this game just came out today Nintendo stated it would take 20 hours at least to finish yet we got a review.

"Funny to me this game just came out today Nintendo stated it would take 20 hours at least to finish yet we got a review."

Reviewers get games a good couple weeks before they release to the general public -- sometimes as much as a month earlier.

Yes retail games not downloadable games. Am i right about that?

Ulf2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )


Nope. Reviewers get early access to downloadable titles as well. A long time, even, before launch. Review embargos are the only thing that prevents most reviews from hitting the street a good two weeks before any game launches.

Games are typically finished at least 6 weeks before launch, because it takes that long to manufacture and ship/distribute the titles to retail. Even downloadable titles take some time to validate the digital packaging, so they are potentially ready for reviewer submission weeks before hitting the online market.

Often a game will be at a testing stage where the only remaining bugs are localization (foreign language) related. During this period, if a correct-language build is available without these typos, grammar errors, etc., it can be sent off for review, despite the fact that it will be a good month (or more, if it needs physical manufacturing) before the title is available to the general public.

Lies! Lies and slander! The game is fun

IGN gave it 8/10

Just saying...

modojo (particularly Buffa) seems to be keen on giving abnormally low scores to things. I guess they think it makes them cool... or something.
