as many gamers are using this opportunity to voice disapproval of the game's DRM, which requires it to be played online.

Woot - off to amazon I go to reviewbomb there.


I'm never a fan of people bombing (or boosting) what they haven't played. It makes actual review ratings utterly pointless and not at all helpful.

You get assholes saying "I haven't played/seen this, but I hate this decision [people actually reviewbombed Casino Royale because they hated a blond James Bond]" then you get fanboys reversing it with "I haven't actually played/seen this, but it must be awesome because the marketing rocks!" The end result is that there's little valid word of mouth and everyone is fucked.

The reviews for this game are absolutely glowing, with the caveat that you damn well better have a strong internet connection for it. If you fit that description, the people the game was made for, you'll love it. If you don't, do not buy it. Sounds reasonable to me. EA is intentionally restricting their audience, and it will probably hurt them regardless of reviewbombs.
