I can only wonder what the hell that Titov guy was thinking, trying his luck after his involvement in BIG RIGS.

Seriously. It's pretty damn clear that he's meant for other things.

IGN did not review this game, but I would not be shocked if the game got a similar score from an ign reviewer.The game will be reviewed by an ign reviewer after the holidays

if the dev wants to pretend that its ready for full release (even though its not), then they should have it reviewed now and be labelled with the stigma forever.

Actually, Titov went ahead and finally made a real apology recently, then went ahead and admitted he was being a bit arrogant.

It was still too late and still too modest an apology for the crap that company is pulling, but I think they're starting to learn not to screw themselves over with their PR. Sort of.

This is a review that just so happens to be on IGN. It is not IGN's review.

Everyone already hates their reviews, anyways. Wouldn't make a difference.

#17 Posted by GarGx1 (3383 posts) -

Perhaps it's IGN's indirect way of putting people off the game, which, from everything I've seen and heard, is a very good thing to do.

With the low standard of PS3 games, you hit that nail right on the head....

#22 Posted by Vatusus (5205 posts) -

it feels like the reviewer is just going with the hating flow this game and its creator are getting latelly. I never played the game myself but from the footage is far from a 1.5 game

Vatusus
This game Is one of very few that deserves every bit of hate that it gets without exception. And you are correct in saying its far from a 1.5, it should have been in the negatives.

IGN trying to be hip and jump on the bandwagon. Such an easy target, journalistic integrity seems absent.

It's a user review. I doubt they're gonna devote employee hours to reviewing a pile of sh*t :P

#37 Posted by heretrix (37525 posts) -

Jeez. Why would you review such an obviously broken game?

God. They are such attention whores.

#38 Posted by SPYDER0416 (16736 posts) -

Thank you OP for not fact checking, thank God this forum isn't a base for journalistic integrity.

It's a reader review everyone, it's been said multiple times.

#39 Posted by Miroku32 (8666 posts) -
Even though it is a reader opinion, I'm sure any reviewer would give a score of 2 or less to this crappy game.

Maybe this video would change your mind.

The game is crap.

Reportedly they didn't have time to put out a review before they closed for the year.

Only Gamespy has a review out so far. We should start seeing more pop up this week.

Actually, Titov went ahead and finally made a real apology recently, then went ahead and admitted he was being a bit arrogant.

SPYDER0416

"Real"? "Apology"? Let's not get crazy here. It's Sergey Titov letting a PR guy who knows English spruce up his words in an attempt to do damage control and convince people to continue giving him money.

heretrix

I don't comprehend what it is you're talking about.

Gaming press should publish reviews of games based on the state the games are in at the time it is purported to be ready for release, sold for money, put on the market, version 1.0, review code sent out. Right?

But you're saying if a game happens to be buggy and unfinished, then they should not publish the review and inform people of this, because if they do, they're attention whores?

#43 Posted by sSubZerOo (44160 posts) -
The game could be amazing, and I still wouldn't play it simply due to how big of pricks the devs are.

No, I'm saying that after all of the negative publicity this game has gotten because it is unfinished, buggy and yanked off of Steam, reviewing it is beating a burning multilated horse. Anyone that would read a "review" from IGN would already know how f*cked up it is. A review really isn't needed.

Also didn't really read the TC so I didn't know IGN didn't write the review, so...ah, hell, they still are attention whores anyway.

After the disaster that Big Rigs was I'm amazed the guy didn't find a new career.. maybe now after War Z he will since he obviously can't make good games.
#46 Posted by Timstuff (26837 posts) -
Weren't there rumors that Big Rigs may have been made using Russian slave labor?
#47 Posted by GarGx1 (3383 posts) -

Titov is clearly a con man, he should be jailed for fraud. He and his company are scamming people out of money, with unfinished products, absolutely dire business practices and false advertisement. I am glad I've never given him or his company a penny of my hard earned cash.

There are people who don't know. Not reviewing it would be doing Hammerpoint a favor they don't deserve. The horse should be beaten until it is vaporized and blown out to sea. Attention horse.

Too high imo
