'The Last of Us' Review: Lone Wolf and Cub | Forbes

The story is too old to be commented.

wtf, wasn't there a force review about this earlier which gave it an 8?

I'm confused

Forbes has like 20 reviewers haha

Ezz20131988d ago

so is 8 from them or 9.5/10 ?

Emillio no offense but these are reviews by Forbes contributors just like we have reviews by contributors here. I wouldnt post them as reviews on the site.

Not exactly, but it was an interesting read trying to check the merits of that claim.

So here is the deal
1 - We've always accepted them so far
2 - You basically have to apply for the position, not just sign up.
3 - They have editors and training staff

So while I would agree there is some form of grey area in regards to this, I wouldn't call it a personal blog (making it unacceptable). I will talk with cgoodno about it just to be sure.

Thank you

Ok cool didnt know that thanks for clearing it up ^^. I just thought the system worked in the same way as it does here.

I'm opened to multiple opinions.

The quality of Forbes contributions varies wildly. Basically, anyone with a barely coherent blog will get approved. I would not consider the contributions made there to be much more relevant than the user blogs and reviews submitted here.

The Daily Mail use a similar model now, as do a number of other larger news/press websites.

I could be wrong, but I find it hard to believe that the "contributor" had a review copy, unless the "official" forbes reviewer gave them one, which would probably be breaking some sort of law or ethics code for review copies.

While I have a huge issue with the quality of some Forbes authors, Emilio is 100% right in his explanation of why Forbes reviews (and other submissions) are allowed.

It would be easy to say "should we make a case for Forbes" but that would lead to a slippery slope of doing the same thing with other sites or "making cases" for other things when it's much easier for us to utilize a set collection of guidelines and let the community decide from there.

Submissions can still be failed, no matter the source, for various reasons (I've failed a few from Forbes for pretty much just being flamebait, blind fanboy opinion pieces).
