You can always tell who's part of the entitled generation by the content of their writing. When it comes to games less is not more ever in any capacity. Optional side quests are just that optional. Tired of these Lame brain rag writers
I will highlight irony of you calling someone entitled because they had a perspective on a game you disagreed with, a game you most likely have not played through yet. I think the review was really well written and your comment was longer than the excerpt you were complaining about, yet mainly consisted of personal attacks. I personally think side quests are regularly pretty empty filler, often virtual chores, it would improve games immeasurably if the quality of them either narratively or practically was more engaging.
See Crimson Wings post. Im loving the game so far! Journalism is not supposed to be all about opinion. Sure thats part of it, buy if the person is already burned out on these games why do they have that person review it?! Reviews should be objective not strict opinion pieces.

Its a review. Which means its someones opinion. Perhaps you think it is a better game than they. But you didnt write a review now did you?
Why don’t we just call reviews opinion pieces then? I always felt reviews were more because they include (or should include) a critical analysis. Anyone can have an opinion. Criticism coupled with a subject matter expert’s knowledge should be included and before you ask what’s the difference between criticism and opinion it’s that criticism relies on intellectual analysis. It makes you wonder what the point of a review is. I always thought it was to help a buyer make an informed purchasing decision based on juxtaposition of previous works held as the industry standard, personal experience, and actual criticism. Opinion absolutely has a place in a review… just not be the review itself. I mean, what’s a game you think is a 9/10? I could say I hated the game , 4/10 and I don’t know how that helps inform an audience, either than I hated the game. If that’s not the case then these should be labeled as opinion pieces since that’s all you’re getting. I think it’d be more honest if these were titled “My opinion on X game and why I think you should care.”
The reviewer seems to give it a glowing review, but doesnt like the enemy life bars and weapon mod elements. Those actually give it a bit of an RPG vibe that is actually a welcome change. The score given here does not match the review.
I've been having a blast with this game in co-op. The gunplay is great, the visuals are great, the audio is superb - I'm really impressed with this one.
