So are you basing your opinion of BF3 the game solely on the fact that some reviewers will be bias? That's the state of global media, it is bias, it is virtually impossible for anybody not to be bias in their review. That said it is the gamers job to make up their own minds, be reasonable and come to their own conclusions. At the end of the day the consumer is the mother of all reviewers. Thought even you and I aren't bias free.

Seems like a bad move. The game's gonna kill, to the point that bad reviews won't matter (don't ask how I know, I just do). Looks a lot more gracious to give review copies to one and all and let them do their worst. EA could have looked like the bigger man (in Norway).

Just because some DLC doesn't get reviews doesn't mean that reviews of other DLC packs are irrelevant. I understand that there are some cases where the analogy provided wouldn't stand, however it doesn't take much intellect to realise that the analogy wasn't about 'horse armour DLC'.

Well, there are always two sides of the story. EA may be trying to prevent objective reviewers from revealing that the game isn't all it's hyped up to be, but it's also possible they have reason to believe that the blocked reviewers have a bias, agenda or worse, compromised.

Two years ago, the New York Times published fabricated evidence. Dan Rather had a counterfeit military article regarding Bush's combat history faxed to him..... It's really not far fetched at all to think a few reviewers are in the pockets of rival game companies.
