im sure i could write the same kind of review about pretty much any game: Gears of War - "you spend a frustrating 10 hours running through tight corridors chainsawing waves upon waves of enemies in half up to the point of numbness in your brain until the campaign has ended. during this time you have to endure the ever occuring texture glitches presetn in the unreal 3 engine. 4/10"

it seems this one is getting as much flak as the first one. and that almost makes up the charm of the series, the one series that just doesnt give a f*** and the main stream press hates it and tries to keep the bastard child of the gaming industry down. im lovin it.

i just read this review and it sounds way more objective:

im sure i can agree with that, sounds like a 6-7/10

You want to see a negative review? Check out Destructoid's- a 1/10.

Looks like I won't be touching this game.

well my gamesmaster gave it 85% and OXM gave it 9/10. I wouldn't listen to this pathetic review. What i find unbelievable is that Destructiod gave it 1/10. That is beyond a joke. It is obvious the reviewer was high when he wrote it.

Ok, I know i'm wading into Hammer Legion Member waters here, but don't take this personally. OXM is a piece of , and I mean that politely. They're basically a publishing arm of microsoft, so of course they want to sell games.

No, but I wouldn't call them a font of radical fringe journalism either, they're usually pretty mainstream. Of course I realize the game probably isn't that bad, but combine destructoid's rating with a lot of the other low scores and things start to look bad.

no game is worth 1/10. Much worse games have got higher reviews than kand and lynch 2.I think people are deluded, if they think that anybody who reviews this game highly, must have been paid off.

I agree that the game probably doesn't deserve a 1, but it's still looking pretty bad. I didn't mean that OXM was bribed, but if you look at their reviewing history I think it'd be safe to draw the conclusion that their staff is encouraged to "think positive".

I tend to really not trust reviewers, between bribery, personal grudges and plain bias from the reviewer. We are only humans after all.

I've seen all sorts of POS being praised for being fantastic games, when they where barely average, while very decent games where trashed for dubious reasons.

I never ever trust reviews 100%. I have my own opinion. What killed this game for me was the POS demo.
