Eidos & Arkham Asylum Reviews [Updated]

A post on The RAM Raider alleges more review score shenanigans from Eidos, already notorious for the GameSpot/Kane & Lynch Fiasco and attemting to delay negative Tomb Raider reviews. According to their report, Eidos UK has embargoed reviews of Batman: Arkham Asylum until the end of the month, and while there is nothing unusual about that, the problem comes in their offer of how to get around this, as they have allegedly offered to allow magazines to print their reviews early, provided they feature the game on their cover and guarantee a review score of at least 90%. The site concludes with a guide to spotting questionable (they use a stronger term) reviews: "This means that if you see a mag turn up within the next few weeks (ding!) that features Arkham Asylum on its cover (ding!) and gives it at least 90% (ding ding ding!), you have a winner." Update: Kotaku has comment from Jon Brooke, Head of UK Marketing, Eidos, denying any wrongdoing: "With regards an article posted on RamRaider alleging that Eidos has fixed review scores for Batman: Arkham Asylum, we want to state that no discussions have been held about review scores with any magazines. In short there is simply not one shred of truth in this article, except for the title of the game."
