Can you link to the previous RPGs he has reviewed?
You can click on anyone's name on the site and see all reviews, news, videos, interviews, or anything else they've written or contributed to. We are transparent. Dig as much as you'd like.
That is good. I will admit, I think the review is garbage myself, but pulling a review because people don't like your opinion is bad form. On the same token, though, the review has inaccuracies and light details of such a nature that the review really is poor quality. I've seen a few good reviews of this game that are pretty poor too.
The fun part is that I've got folks here saying "don't pull the review" and I've got folks on Steam accusing us of baiting for clicks by leaving the review up. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
[quote]That's hardly a biting personal attack. If the text was skimmed, and it caused him to have difficulty questing, that's hardly a criticism you cannot ignore. You said this guy likes RPGs--they tend to be text heavy, and in this game most of the details are are in the text. The game does have some problems with not telling you some things--some of them are in the manual however. It's fair for him to bring this up, but it's not so severe that it renders the game impossible to play. Missing the fact that the alt key shows items is both in the manual and is covered in the tutorial he mentions, so his criticism about not being able to find items is pretty clearly a sign of skimming since the point it MENTIONS that is a case where you need to find the key to open a chest!
Most modern RPGs are not heavily text based. I imagine that there will be a lot of reviews that cite this as a negative. Whether those reviews are positive or negative remain to be seen. In all cases, they are that person's opinion.
