Title should be "EA does what all game publishers do".

Seems legit to me. Why should they bother letting some critic review their new game before launch if all they did was give bad scores on all their previous games. Who the hell reads reviews for games now anyways with betas and all (not that betas should be considered as a mirror of the finished product), should I honestly trust some random guys opinion on what makes a great game?

If you were a Battlefield 2 fan, you're going to buy Battlefield 3. That's all there is to it. I don't need any clowns telling me what they don't like about the game.

He is a funny reviewer and I watch his show to get a laugh; but this is one reviewer you dont want to take seriously, other reviewers aren't that much better though.
He's only a terrible reviewer if you don't know how to take certain things away or with a grain of salt, and the stuff he complains about? Well, generally it is stuff that gets annoying after a while.

I hate to be one of the douches that say this..But I like how it being BF3 means it's alright, but when it's say, Kane and Lynch people got really angry about it.

Not surprised, many game reviews here in Norway generally don't match with what gamers say and what other reviewers said:

Gamereactor Norway managed to say Duke Nukem Forever has excellent puzzles and the driving of the truck is among the best parts of the game. They even managed to say the game lacked direction markers.
For those who didn't play DNF, the puzzles were horribly bad designed and the monstertruck driving is generally among the most boring and worst parts. And the game is more linear than Portal.

Out of interest are you dumb? Do you believe everything that you read? If you don't then I don't think that you can say that others do. I think it is wrong logic too readily used, to say that I know I'm not manipulated by reviews, but, there is a mass of pulpy, mushy, people that are. Name them, or even, name one of them.

I really don't even see the problem. They asked some no-name websites to fill out a questionnaire when they requested a FREE EARLY copy of their game. There's nothing wrong with that.

You would be amazed how easily people are swayed by sham reviews from professional reviewers and bloggers.

Yes, that is why people should take those advertisement reviews with a huge grain of salt.

EA is a MetaScore whore. This is not surprising at all.

I never trust a review anyway. I like to try and play a game before I buy, or ask other people on OCN etc who can actually agree on what games I like that they like too
