An article is not a review. It will not be indexed by Metacritic, nor will it be read by many consumers.Fasckira said:Bit of an over-reaction.RvLeshrac said:"...not our official opinion..." As usual, while the games industry burns down around them, the 'journalists' fiddle.
The game is broken. It should be reviewed AS IT WAS RELEASED TO CONSUMERS. Anything else is base cowardice, fearing for ad revenue provided by the games industry and "exclusives."
Would you review a car the same way? "Looks nice, but we're going to hold our reviews for a month until Ford puts working engines in."
How about a restaurant? "Waiter shat on our plates, but we'll wait until the replacement meal comes out before giving you our full review."
Review. The. Damned. Game. As. Shipped.
Likely the full review later on will also cover all the problems so far but at present any review of the game will be hard pushed to avoid devolving into a rant about its issues. If a review were to be released now that covered the game and avoided talking about the problems then it'd be stoned for being biased.
Cant really refer to this as base cowardice after hes just written a two page article about all the faults in the game.
