I see a rather large shitstorm has erupted over at CVG towers.|
Rob Crossley has intervened in the comments saying he doesn't think it's a good review, and Rich Stanton has gone on twitter saying "HATE having my stuff on CVG. Fuck that site" and also accusing sites that give the game a bad score are lowballing. Despite his own text matching up pretty exactly with all of the lower-scoring reviews elsewhere. Some very poor professionalism there. Funnily enough, he's a contributor to EG, who would count among the sites he is accusing of deliberately lowballing. I think he hasn't done his career any favours at all with all this.
Which all suggests to me that, quite simply, the review should be taken down by CVG, re-done by someone else, and Rich Stanton shouldn't have his work published on CVG anymore (or anywhere else he just collectively insulted like EG, Edge, etc).
At least Rob Crossley managed to maintain his professionalism in his response.
