Legal Mess Over Euro Alone In The Dark Reviews

Kotaku summarises: "This week, the following events took place: 1. We got a bunch of tips telling us that the Xbox 360 version of Alone in the Dark had turned up on BitTorrent sites. 2. Scandinavian games site GameReactor were one of the first to review Alone in the Dark. They gave it 3/10. Ouch. However, they then promptly pulled the review, and accusations of shady dealings were levelled against the site by Atari, who said that press copies had only been sent out the day before (the review has since been reinstated, and the 3/10 stands). Odd, seeing as many other European publications also had reviews go live this week, but whatever. 3. German site 4Players reviews the game. Gives it 68%. Then is threatened with legal action by Atari because, yes, Atari had no idea how the site got a copy of the game."

Well I give a 4 out of 10, haven't played it. Just saying I did. Can I get sued now? Please, frivolous lawsuits abound these days. Everyone is so litigious it isn't even funny. Everyone is suing someone.

I might have to try qore. I'm too cheap to put out $12.50AUD for a Mag these days. That is like Petrol for 2 weeks on my motorcycle...

What are you talking about??

This is a gaming website doing its job. The game is a turd and they are warning you not to spend your money?

The story here is that Atari so blatently try and suppress an honestly expressed and valid opinion on this game.

The game IS A turd - having now played it, I can confirm its not worth your money.
