'09 - Game Reviewers.
want info about a new video game that comes
out it's simply not possible to get a fair
and balanced review.
reviewers are pro Xbox 360 and hate the
PlayStation 3, some reviewers are more
concerned with giving the game a score rather
than telling details about it, and some
reviewers seem to be more interested in
writing witty journalistic banter than giving
a genuine opinion.
reviews are a lot more honest but the problem
is that some players love a game and think it's
perfect and some players will hate the game
with every fibre of their being. So the
review will either be a great game with a 100%
score or a rubbish game with a 0% rating.
learnt to ignore the actual reviews and just
read about the game and gauge my own opinion,
but even then the reviewer's bias will effect
what information they're giving out.
looking for information about Tomb Raider
Underworld on the PlayStation 2. Apparently
it's not the same as the other versions and
has been bitterly criticized by the gaming
press. I personally think it's a good game
but that's just my opinion. What annoyed me
the most is some reviewers hate the game so
much that they don't give out correct facts
about it which implies to me that they never
actually played it! On more than one occasion
the reviewer stated that there are no extra
outfits for Lara to wear, but there are loads.
You do actually need to complete the game
first to change Lara's outfit so the reviewer
obviously hadn't done that. Another reviewer
stated that Lara wears an extra set of guns
for decoration only because she never gets to
use them, this reviewer hadn't bothered to
read the manual to find out what button to
press to change guns. Another reviewer stated
that so much of the game was cut out that
things like ammo for your guns don't exist in
the PS2 version, in fact no other version of
Tomb Raider Underworld has ammo either so
they were never cut from the game if they
weren't there in the first place.
my favourite game of all time is Bullet Witch
and nearly every review in existance gives it
a low rating, I have a sneaky feeling some
reviewers write a review based upon what
another reviewer has said.
