Even sites that you find reliable can be hit and miss because different reviewers are reviewing each game. PC Gamer has been known for giving ridiculously high scores to games that deserve much less (Dragon Age 2, Doom 3 and Crysis come to mind). RPS is a little more consistent, though their review of Fallout New Vegas was pretty terrible.

They're rare, though, and people generally call them out on it. Dragon Age 2 had a demo, at least, so everyone knew they were being too generous (even though I gave it about an 80, myself, disappointing as a sequel but still pretty good). I also thought they were praising Dungeon Siege 3 too much, I wonder if that was the same guy? Doom 3 and Crysis were ages ago, so I don't remember reading those.

Not saying that Absolution doesn't deserve the scorn they gave it, just that you can't automatically assume that they are correct.

Well, unless they're passing along a boatload of 'factual inaccuracies,' I can pretty objectively determine that they are correct here.
