One other reviewer on a major games site was tweeting that he agreed with the other reviews he read before he'd posted his own review.
I disagree with this guy's assertion that the Phantom Menace is regarded as bad just because of the internet, but his overall point is sound. Professional game reviews aren't any different or better than the average forum post on any given site.
