Gee, big surprise. Of course their reviews are predicated on advertising dollars. All the big budget games have always got glowing reviews - regardless of what everyone else is saying - and all the smaller titles get ripped apart to appear to give them some sort of 'street cred' that they're legit. It's why since day one I always relied on - at the time - for smaller, more honest sites like the Adrenaline Vault for reviews, as well as sites like Blues, VE, etc. to find me more legitimate reviews. And of course, most importantly, my fellow gamers.

Spot on Cutter, same way, Game Informer being a perfect example, owned by Gamestop/EBGames, every high profile title like a Madden or a BL2 gets 9's or 10's every time. Hell even some of the lesser known titles get high scores that they don't deserve.

I put far more faith into word of mouth here, or at Rock Paper Shotgun than any big review house any day.
