Money.

BIOWARE's just another company going down the crapper because thats all they care about.

Personally, i'm not surprised this has happend.

If they actually worked hard on it they wouldn't have this problem.

Nope. It's also worth mentioning to the conspiracy theorists in here that the review in question was artificially pushed to the very top of the list by hundreds of positive votes and there was at least one other cookie-cutter 10/10 review by a user with the exact same name as a Bioware forum mod. You'll just have to trust me about the forum mod one as I can't find the screenshot of it anymore.

Also played it through, loads of content my arse, one ****in city in which every where is either a mansion, slum or warehouse. Thats it 3 ****in rooms for all your combat. And a couple of caves that all look the same.

Its not bad but i feel to say they "worked hard" and "loads of content" is a joke. Theres 2 DLCs each which take 10 minutes, nice.

Just because you can do something over and over again doesn't make it content, it makes it a bad game
