The Darkfall Forums have a reaction from Aventurine to a review of their new MMORPG published yesterday in Eurogamer that awarded the game a 2 out of 10 score, the lowest score the site can give a game that isn't actually broken. The response from Aventurine includes information from their server logs indicating the reviewer played the game for less than two hours spread over 13 sessions. Eurogamer's response to the complaints includes the reviewer's insistence he played for at least nine hours and the server logs are inaccurate. Another bone of contention from the review is the complaint from Aventurine that the article is not accurate, and the Eurogamer forums have posts from players pointing out what they claim are factual errors in the article. Eurogamer defends the original review, and has refused demands it be pulled, but they also say they've "learned some lessons from this episode," and are assigning a second writer to review the game and see how the outcome jibes with their original write-up.
