knowing if they are CoD fan is legitimate cause they are mindless
knowing if they played and complained about a BETA like it was a demo too it indicates a poor level of understanding when it comes to this industry.

Very biased comment. Curious question, if Activision does the same thing for CoD that EA is doing now, are they be manipulating reviews? If yes, then the same goes for EA too.

Sort of surprised at the number of people defending EA in this thread. No matter how much you like a particular game or how good a game supposedly is or will be, developers who do their best to manipulate scores do no good to anyone who actually looks to reviews for information. For a truly unbiased collection of reviews we should be hearing from a wide variety of people, not the ones handpicked by the developers that are expected to give favorable reviews.

I love these people accusing reviewers of taking bribes/etc/not knowing anything about their own industry when most of them do it for a living and love what they do.

It's like yelp vs your local newspaper critic. One likes to feel like their opinion is important, one actually has a background/experience writing about the topic/usually knows more than the former.

Do i agree with most of them? No. But i'd pick those reviewers any day over a bunch of ppl that think they know everything b/c they know how to google

I never understood the BF vs CoD thing. They aren't even the same type of game outside of being FPS.

What? You mean like a profession maybe? Again: what?! Review of any game should be done by gamer and not some idiot who was paid to do it.

Me too, just played both games and enjoyed them in Single player.

None of them can beat Q3 and CS in multiplayer anyway.
