Many small sites have to take the publisher line otherwise they risk losing all access and potential ad revenue in the future. Not saying it's ok but I get it.

Also there is the possibility that they just disagree with others, however remote

I think it's more likely that they actually liked the game. Reviews coming out at this point are by sites that weren't provided review copies in the first place, something smaller sites don't often get.

It really hasn't gotten bad reviews, even from people who have just been playing it, just a lot of bad press for the online-only component causing so many problems. To be fair, I haven't played it, but it's not universally reviled aside from the connectivity issues.

EA buys review scores from some larger places, I don't doubt that. The idea that every good review score is bought, though, or that only the reviews that reinforce a negative opinion on the game are accurate...not sure what to say about that, other than to wonder why someone would even bother with a review when their mind is already made up.
