Only partially agree with you there Knight,

You are right, every game review is going to be subjective and not objective. Enjoyment isn't really something which can be objectified as such they have to be subjective. Yes you can list game features in a sterile and objective way, but that's not what consumers are looking for.

What we as consumers can do is find a reviewer/editor who shares similar tastes than we do through games played and opinions shared. This will then give the consumer an idea on if he will like the game or not.

So yes there will be pointless reviews and editors you won't agree with out there. As such sites like Metacritic who collect allot of reviews and then average them provide more of a global overview how a game is perceived.

at least that's my opinion on the topic.

Wow, now D:OS has a 9/10 from the four major international gaming press outlets:

IGN : 9/10
Gamespot: 9/10
GameInformer: 9/10
Eurogamer: 9/10

It's like mass media wanted to prove to Swen that they still enjoy a quality game and that they are far from being completely unimportant. Great job, Larian! smile

Review done by casual player who missed his handholding and didn't appreciate that the way is important and not only the goal. Finding out stuff for yourself is part of the fun, and not a problem....

Agreed, and I think his score is too low, but at least it seems to be an honest appraisal of the game based on actually playing it. Gotta give him credit for that much, at least.

... Veterans of the RPG genre will note that other developers have set these goals before, only to let fans down in the end. (I'll pause here to allow any gamers still scarred by Peter Molyneux's Fable hype to collect themselves.)

Score aside, its a much better reasoned review. Has its praise on good things, explains them clearly, and has criticism that even though i dont necessarily agree, i can perfectly understand and say 'fair enough'.

Its subjective like most reviews, but actually wants to clearly explain the ideas of the reviewer. This is certainly a review anyone can read and understand how the game should feel but doesnt force a potential player to look away just because the reviewer just wanted to mindlessly bash the game due to ignorance and lack of time with it.

Thanks for setting the justice for everyone, fans, review site, customers, developers,, etc.
