Check out this review here:
last night, I started reading about video game review embargoes, and how game companies make game reviewers hold their review of a game until a certain date. In some instances, reviews aren't allowed until A game has been out for a few weeks. We've all ran across a game that we wanted to get a review on because we saw it on the shelf at wal-mart or best buy, but wanted to know how good it was, only to find very little on it. "But the game has been out 3 weeks...what the hell?"
i read the review above, and before I got to the second paragraph, all I could think was...."they bought this sum b**ch." Now, it's commen knowledge that game companies will give certain gaming web sites "exclusive" information on an upcoming game IF they praise and score a game they know is going to suck with a high score and total praise. This review makes it sound like Aliens : CM is the s**t ! Awesome gameplay, balanced multiplayer, incredible sounds, you are the marine, you are the galactic a**kicker, you are on LV246, and you ARE GOD !!
To quote a line from Rambo, "I've been playing games since your mamma was wiping your nose!" (Ok, not a direct quote) But I've been playing since the Atari 2600 days, thru the Commadore 64, Amiga 500, Sega Genisys, Nintendo...you name it, I had it. I know a bad game when I see it, when I play it, and most certainly when I feel ripped off by purchasing it. I played this game...for 3 hours. I was bored to tears with it. I know..I KNOW....it was going to score lower than dirt. I said it on earlier posts, I predicted it, I confirmed it, and alas, it has come to fruition.
You may know me as Eagle_2004....but you can call me Nostrodamus.
