I can see both sides of the story, it's just hard by looking and reading a review to tell if the reviewer was being serious, or if he was being "venomous", because some writers just have a certain way about them, putting how they feel in stronger words. That doesn't necessarily mean they're trying to go out of their way to kill a game, it just means they write differently than others and interpret what they like and don't like about a game differently.
