The dude with the british accent that does really long reviews is good. If you can't trust a guy with a British accent, who can you trust?

Jim Sterling and Angry Joe actually do say that.

It's ok that you're not much of a gamer into the youtube side of things.

actually shadow of mordor is not that good at least to me. It is basically the same concept as say dynsasty warriors/samurai warriors with some exception to its boss battle which is kind of interesting but gets old as well

Didn't watch any reviews for shadow of mordor. Turned out to be a good game either way. Warner Brothers wasted a lot of money 😃

well, he was right about the control for sure, he did say the game was good in other areas but that movement and control\combat is mediocre
the combat system in 90% of games on console is basically like that tho, spam button with or without qtes.
i had to do a break for 2 weeks on my play-through because that bored me so much, they simplified that mechanic to a point it made the potions pointless lol


eh developers have been paying reviewers for quite some time

I went to a Node.JS conference last fall with the like of the BBC presenting and WB had a "booth" there i went to there after presentation talk and they were supposed to have some game running on node.js .. nope i dont really know the full details or excuse but it was a worthless attempt to say they had there own product going on... i was very suspicious at the time as there were i think just some still shots on a web page of the game.. honestly dont even remember what the game was ..which should tell you a thing or two haha

Reviews are useless. Only negative reviews are informative, it's the only thing worth checking on Steam or Metacritic. Gaming """journalism""" is a cringe worthy sad joke.

What some of you may not see is that of course you never believe a game reviewer 100%.

However they MIGHT have seen something that you never thought off or etc which could make you change your mind about the game or else.
