    This might(or is) something that inspires both flame wars and trolling, i sincerely hope people refrain from such things in here(if not the moderators can shut it down)

    Not sure if Eurogamer minds a specific critisim pointed towards their reviews, but i want to start this thread with the idea of actually improving future reviews, and reviewers neglecting important parts of individual games.

    The review that i most recently found very very bad was the White Knight Chornicles Review.

    The game was reviewed WAY before any other reviews were out which makes you wonder whether the review actually spend time with the game.

    Secondly, online servers were not up and are a integral part of the game, it shouldn't be solely reviewed on it campaign.

    Thirdly, the reviewer complains about the intro of the game for about 1/2, 3/4 page. He could;'ve simply read the manual or played part 1 in the series to understand the mechanics.

    No mention of the inclusion of part 1 which offers a substantional amount of gameplay something that should've been mentioned.

    Even though the first part might've been reviewed by someone else, it is strange the the grades vary extremely in a short period of time even with the consideration of comparisons of other games in the genre.

    I only posted this thread in the hope that eurogamer uses constructive critisims to improve their reviews. Please post clear and constructive critisims that actually contributes.

    EDIT:

    I might have actualyl posted this in the wrong section, move it as you see fit moderators

    The Socom 4 review was not only the worse review I've ever read on EG, but the worse review I've ever read, period.

    Awfully written and by someone who has no idea or experience about/with the Socom franchise.

    My 4 year old god daughter could have written better.

    I like it when he's angry.

    The Chromehounds review is coming up to its fifth anniversary, that's still recent enough for me.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Every game not reviewed by Keza.
  • Deleted user 15 June 2011 23:38:44
    Too many for me. Don't get me wrong, a lot of them are well written, but theres no consistency. Some games get hammered for not being original/offering something new, yet some games that get milked and add pretty much nothing from year to year score well. It's a slight problem on most websites, though. EG is the best website for news, but the last place I come for a review.

    The Brink score was quite something. How it scored above 5 on any site is beyond me. Thank god that I only got it on rental.

    meh! those who base buying games on the words of a stranger deserve to get burned! :p

    I'm not too bothered about reviews, as I usually make up my mind on whether I'm going to get a game for myself. I have to say the Mafia II review made me piss my sides though. EG are like an Edge Lite for games reviews I tend to find.

    This. She's written some fantastic reviews. Her Demon Souls review (and now her OOT review) will always stick in my mind. Bang on the money.

    Come to think of it, I can't think of any reviews off the top of my head that I haven't agreed with. Its the news section and Digital Foundry articles that annoy me.

    EDIT: Just been reminded of the Resi 4 Wii review. That was terrible. That recent 'beginners guide to survival horror' article was an absolute joke as well.

    Never mind the wrong section. I think you may have chosen the wrong forum nae website for this one.

    I see someone has already mentioned Dorkfail. (damn)

    Not sure I get the

    bit. Are you trying to say the reviewer didn't like the opening half of the game? I would have thought that if you get to that point and you think it's a bit shit it's probably a bit shit.
