But my god the review they gave for Natural Selection 2. I can easily say that this is the WORST review I had personally EVER read on this site. It was simply downright wrong.
First off the review starts off stating early that the game is $30, when it is in reality a $25 game (and the review insinuated that this was expensive). Besides this inaccuracy the actual review gives hardly ANY insight to the game and hardly has any facts involved at all. Just reading the good/bad section alone is pathetic. About the only legitimate flaw listed is that the game does indeed have a steep learning curve, and this is true, but I question how many points you can knock off a game for this factor alone.
The reviewer complains about graphics, which seems incredibly minute. The game looks completely fine considering it is an independent in-house developed engine that is utilized for a multiplayer game. The art goes a long way toward carrying the presentation which is the same method a game such as TF2 follows. He complains of 5+ minute loading times which...is insane. The game does have excess loading between maps, but I have never experienced anything over 30 seconds. I suppose this is not surprising considering Gamespot made a MoH Warfighter video graphics comparison video bragging about their GTX 285, and referencing it as a newer high/mid-range card.
Besides these his only other complaint is the community...which is ridiculous because there are servers on the list clearly defined in green specifically made for rookie players, and from playing about 30 hours have had a GREAT experience with the community found on these servers for new players. Regardless, I just felt compelled to show the flaws of this review. The inaccuracies in it is insurmountable, and giving this great game a 6/10 for such failure in proper review is inacceptable. Some of the comments for that review said that it was going to be pulled, but for now I will remember Eric Neigher as the worst reviewer for Gamespot and take any future articles from him with caution.
(p.s. as I type this I went back to the page and noticed the 6/10 was indeed taken down, thank goodness. Eric Neigher sucks at his job)
