Former Fired Gamespot Editor Reviews Kane & Lynch 2 Xbox 360 version

Jeff Gerstmann, who was fired for his negative review of the first Kane & Lynch, writes:

"Kane and Lynch's trek through Shanghai's underworld is astoundingly brief, leaving you just enough time to get a feel for the game's great visual style, but not much else. Also, we experienced a fairly crippling technical issue while testing the Xbox 360 version."

Why was he fired for giving a review?

StarScream4Ever3107d ago

Edios paid huge amount for the ads space on Gamespot to promote the game prior to its release. When the game was given a mediocre review there was high suspicion that Gerstmann firing was due to Eidos pressure against CNET(Gamespot parent company). Though both Eidos and CNET never did gave actual reason for the firing (due to legal restraint) there was enough forum and internet opinion piece that suggested all the ads purchase and promotion was a form of bribe hoping to gain higher scoring and push for making advertisers happy.
