What Are Reviews Good For?
How do us consumers use the work of critics in their own decision making and why do they show such hostility to poor reviews?
Last weekend turned out to be an interesting one for those interested in the culture of game reviewing. Whilst Keith Stuart of the Guardian Gamesblog was questioning whether reviewers really cared about (or even understood) innovation when critiquing games, Edge-Online published a review that gave 'Resistance 2' a quite controversial but perhaps not surprising 6 out of 10.
and watch the cum fest.
Edge hate the PS3 it is hardly a secret
"This leads on to Edge’s review of ‘Resistance 2’, which criticised the game largely for its lack of innovation and improvement since the franchise’s first instalment."
So why did Gears 2 and l4d received a 9/10? Consistency with reviews is all we asking for.
A very good read about what a review really is and how too many people don't come up with their own opinions and focus too much on the final score.
So a PS3 exclusive didnt get a high score and automatically Edge is biased what about the majority of reviews of R2 which are in the 8-8.5 range, Edge are known for being extra harsh thats why it got lower than the average of 8
