[Neoseeker] Atari Sues - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Atari couldn't make a decent game if their lives depended on it...

Their not even the real Atari their some dumb crappy french game developer called Infogrames who stole the Atari name in hopes of making sales of nostolgic gamers.

And like all things french, they have no talent and they suck

I don't remember actually.

Atari makes a few good games. Test Drive Unlimited is one of my favorite racing games.

i think it was Kane & Lynch: apparently the game won a BAFTA award before it was even released. That's why i didn't buy it when it was on offer on STEAM a couple of weeks back.

iirc, Atari was one the founding companies that helped make console gaming into what it is today - how did they destroy gaming?

yet another business end of the gaming industry going ass-up..

but to be fair, if this pre-release review was done on 'an illegally pirated copy' then they would have something to sue about..

Hehe.... bought this game out of nostalgia today (I remember the first trilogy being pretty ground breaking), will be installing tomorrow so will post my opinion if I remember

As for sueing over bad reviews... didn't Alienware refuse Hexus machines due to bad reviews last year?

The Alone in the Dark series was originally an Infogrames title, and were damn fine games!

Every time I see any thing Atari I think of this. I am always careful to remember it. They just bought the Atari name and rather cheap I might add. Every now and then I'll catch some saying they'd wish that Atari would make a console again...they have around 40 empolyees now and only publish video games and poor games at that. The only glint of hope Atari has had in recent days (in the PC market any way)was The Witcher and they didn't have much to do with it...CDProjeck did most of the work and the profits.

Honestly, I am thinking they are trying to shut down reviewers that historically give truthful reviews on their games. Since priracy is such a hot topic these days they figured that the law people would side with them, but like most priracy cases they have no way to prove it and I am betting that there was no priracy involved either. Game reviewers are dependant on new games coming out for the advertising on their sites to make money(if they aren't paid under the table for the game devs). I doubt they would hurt it by being involved in priracy. Heh...that one site posted the review one day after it hit retail and they still say it was prirated. From what I've read Alone in the Dark is only about a 12 hour long game any way.

And game reviewers are all subjective any way. I personally have never disaggreed with gamespot...well 95% of the time any way. It is just becasue I think their reviewers and I have the same taste so their reviews work for me. However, I can walk about ten meters and find some one who thinks every one at gamespot is on crack. You just have to find a review site that works for you and then they can be a source of valuable information.

Ever since Infogrames aquired the Atari name several years ago they have done nothing but soil the name of everyone's favorite 80's gaming company with with a never ending barrage of shitty games.. Whats worse is instead of trying to improve their games they cry about it.

French people are overly emotional... bad reviews hurt their "feelings". They probably get depressed and set around eating bonbon's to make themselves feel better.
