Game Reviews

2. Re: 1Up Dec 22, 2003, 00:56 4D-Boxing
At least i'm not the only one that feels this about that review. I can't believe he dares call himself a harcore fan of the genre his review sounds like it was made by someone who was forced to play a genre he hates on a platform he hates. Don't get me wrong the game is not perfect but it's d@mn good. He wishes the game was more like freelancer but as a fan of the genre who's been gaming since the days of the vic20 the freelancer mouse interface is the main reason i can't stand the game. Joysticks are 10$ now come on people... to me it does not make sense to take points away because the reviewer does not have enough commen sense to realize that a space sim is best played with a stick.

"He always judges games on what he wants them to be, not on what they are. His reviews are very unreliable because of that."

That seems to be the trend with many of the new gaming sites or new reviewers. Some reviews i have seen on this game where so bad that it was obvious they never even opened the manual and had no clue how to play the game.

I wish sites could afford to hire guys for each type and each platform instead of having to read comments from pc gamers that hate consoles games or console gamers that hate pc games and end up posting ureliable reviews.
