Destructoid: Mario Kart 7 Review

Jim Sterling writes:

"The more a game has the word "new" printed on the back of its game case, the better the chances are that the game inside will feel older than time itself. Mario Kart 7 has the word "new" printed on the back of its game case no less than four times, and true to the theory, its contents are less fresh than the contents of Joan Crawford's underwear.

At this point, it's customary with a Nintendo game to mention how that's not a bad thing, to highlight how nothing was broken and didn't need fixing. In Mario Kart 7, however, I don't think that's appropriate. For once, sticking to tradition has not worked in Nintendo's favor."

Does anyone actually take this guy seriously?

Never. Gonna get the game this week hopefully and I know I'll have loads of fun with it. Jims a hater. And no, I didn't take his stealth troll review of Killzone 3 seriously.

The solution to the "everybody gives 8s" problem is not to shit on a likely very good game with a poor review.

I don't care for the score to be honest, but the entire review is highly unprofessional. I don't care if that guy claims to have played MK64 til he was blue in the face, he clearly did not want to review that game, and you can tell from the tone and lack of information in his entire review.

It's a goddamn shame that these paid journalists can't even match the objective analysis and overall quality of amateur blog reviewers and forum users. Goddamn shame I say.

Jim Sterling is in general an asshole. I don't trust him with any review.
