That is some funny stuff. First, he lied to the DEVELOPERS of the game about not playing it on normal, then he omits that section of his review? That's some low down, dirty stuff right there. I'm glad that I don't usually read "professional" reviews for games, although I tend to just gloss over them to see what the reviewers think of certain aspects.
Also, I didn't know that Pixeljunk Sidescroller was a platformer; I thought it was a sidescrolling shooter.
