Anyways, yea it's stupid of that dev to post a review on metacritic, and for EA to defend him when they don't really need to. Was he wrong though? Most of those reviews are by angry kids who can't stand the fact that they didn't develop the game for the PC first. He was probably just annoyed that after putting all that work into a game (It's actually pretty good, just not great) and then hear a ton of complaints that don't have much ground.

While they may be right they just made themselves look like they are full of themselves and are complete asshats in the process. You don't go bragging about this kinda stuff. You apologize and try to clean up the mess.

Way to get your games pirated you idiots.

EA needs to die already. Like the company needs to go bust. So we can get some better quality games. For the sake of quality PC Gaming.

I doubt I would ever buy a game based upon a review...

I've seen so many lame titles hit the shelf, I just stay in the loop of gamers and listen to what they say is awesome...

In one game you ask players what a good game to buy is, and they will be more than glad to tell you what is hot and what's not...

DA2 is NOT a hot game... It's just mediocre at best..

Gamer: This games look like it sucks!
DA Fan: Shut up and try the demo!
*Gamer tries the demo*
Gamer: This demo is terrible!
DA Fan: You stupid little <censored> you have no right to say that. Try the final game?
*Shrugs, buys the game, installs and plays as much as is possible without throwing up*
Gamer: I really don't like this game.
*DA Fan bursts into incomprehensible rage and attacks Gamer*

LOL, quoted for truth!! Only complaint I have is you left out any Valve game from your sentence. That would have hit the nail on the head for overclock.net and pc gaming threads.

Stupid or desperate?

I think the latter.

The game wasn't that great, people are disappointed, and Bioware made some crap decisions (This being one of them, assuming they had any involvement in this employee's choice to write the review - and they prolly did)

Who would? They're so easily bribed or corrupt in some way. I've not trusted reviewers for years - only that of friends and family, and my own judgement if i play it myself.

Gaming in general has been on a downward spiral for years. All flash and no substance. They forgot how to make games feel fun without feeling like you are being nickel and dimed to death.
Pumping the ratings of your own game is just sad. If the game isn't good enough to stand on it's own feet then it deserves to die.
Personally I'd be happy if they remade Star Wars Galaxies with all it's depth and gameplay intact with a much more efficient and pleasant graphics engine.

Metacritic has 300+ reviews and 1 review skewd the results? Yeah right... Like half of those 0/10 reviews aren't just troll reviews based on others (like usually happens, bashing without actually trying).

Personally I think DA2 is a 9/10 while DAO is an 8.5/10. Thats MY personal opinion like most reviews on Metacritic and even professional reviewing.
