Maybe they couldn't play the game? If I couldn't play the game I wouldn't rate it high either, I mean, you have to be honest right, the game runs like complete and utter shit and it's a gamble if it will work or not on your setup yet all the other reviews just glossed over that and kept sucking Rockstars Dick, I'm glad at least one review took notice of how horrible a port it actually is and gave it a score what it's really worth until Rockstar fix it.

Once they get the bugs fixed, they should redo that review.

My brother has a gaming PC that cost him about 2500 euros and it meets the specs but it rarely starts and when it does start it will work for about 5 minutes and then it will just freeze. Can't really give a game an average rating if doesn't even work for you. Good to see reviewers aren't afraid to give bad ratings nowadays.

Most cases some gaming companies actually threaten reviewers if they give bad ratings.

"Laziest console port ever"

What a ridiculous blanket statement to throw around, especially at a game which has vastly improved visuals and an entire new movie mode on PC. They should try Metal Gear Solid 2 for PC, then they'll see what a lazy port is.

The first one that comes to my mind is a Gamespot employee being fired for a review of Kane & Lynch i think. He gave the game too much negative reputation.

A google search will yield alot more info, but i know i've seen this at least 3 separate times

He did say he will review it properly once he can get it working. My brother still can't get it working and he has done all he can, he has checked his drivers, got the patch, checked the specs, update everything. It still doesn't work for him and he is running vista. There isn't really much else he can do to get it working except put it in a drawer until Rockstar fix this problem.

I don't think that will hurt them, they will probably buy the game if they have to just to review it. The review will just be posted later than others is all.

Or the original unpatched Resident Evil 4 port that Ubisoft did.

Oh wow a world reknowned publication like Game Over Online Magazine gave this game 10% in a review.

Why do we care what they have to say. The site looks like crap it just looks like someones lame video game blog.
