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.

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.

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

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.

Even though it is a reader opinion, I'm sure any reviewer would give a score of 2 or less to this crappy game.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
