BioShock Infinite Reviews Soar

The unfortunate inequitable review embargo for BioShock Infinite has expired, and viewpoints on Irrational Games' shooter prequel can now compete with each other for supremacy, just as Andrew Ryan would have wanted. Metacritic currently shows the game with 31 positive critic's reviews and a 95 metascore, which is in the rarified air of the best reviewed games of all time, including the original BioShock, which is one of seven PC games with a metascore of 96. As of now there are no user reviews, as the game is not due until tomorrow.

Meh, I'm still going to wait. Sim City has a bunch of 90 reviews from the Press before it shipped.

I have to wonder how much getting these games Free can fog the vision of reviewers. I know when I "bought" diablo 3 with credits and such, didn't spend any money on it, I wasn't that upset with how things turned out.

Other games that I've paid for, if those don't feel worth it, that is a totally different experience. That is a "You deserve to go out of business for taking my money in exchange for this trash you good for nothing bag of shit."*

I doubt reviewers ever get to experience that rage since most everything they play is either a business expense (at best) or just a free copy sent by the publishers.

I trust buyers like myself as far as game feedback. I want to see people who've paid that $60 price come out and talk positively about a game before I bother looking at it.

*Examples
Bought Swtor $60 - Meh, too bad it wasn't better.
Bought Diablo 3 $0 - Really disappointing game, but meh, $0.
Bought ME3 $60 - You should go out of business.

I think if you're going to charge someone $60 the game better deliver. If it doesn't you've made an enemy for life...or until your next game is balls to the wall awesome and somehow balances out the giant mountain of ship you created. (this never happens, companies never recover from this in my experience, once they go down hill they snowball)
