It's very possible that the game simply IS this good. I haven't played it, so I can't judge it. The videos make it look pretty decent, if also fairly standard pew pew pew hitscan multiplayer fare.
However, Drew McCoy, the publisher who is going to be publishing your game is absolutely very well known for paying people for positive opinions (or making it nigh impossible to give a negative one.) In fact, they are in the news for such horseshit just about once a month.
So for you to get all uppity and pretend like you work for some kind of bastion of game virtue is really quite amusing. Why do people suspect that opinions on your game have been bought? Well, because it's happened before, frequently, and because gamers are getting a bit tired of constantly being lied to by the shitheels that infest this industry.
This is the environment you work in, an environment that many of your fellow workers in this industry helped foster. Welcome to the real world.
I agree with this, game could be good, be all above board. But the industry has been caught red handed several times. So like other things, how many times are we to be lied to before we can actually just be down right doughtful? Sure it sucks from a Devs side when everything is above board, but they also have to understand where all this came from and not for us, but people that in fact did buy ratings and got caught. Forever tainted.
