The reviewer not only didn't know who made the previous games, but he claims the new Max is way better hero than the first two games. Iirc, the only games Rockstar was making back then was GTA. Oh also, mentions what big fans everyone is around the office. It's all completely contradictory.
Now does it sound like he really even played the first two games? Not to mention, has Rockstar EVER released a game with story as compelling as MP or MP2?
NO, not even close.
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
