The game is released on PC so what's wrong with reviewing the PC version, if you are going to buy the console version go somewhere else for your review. The idea that a game shouldn't be reviewed on a certain platform because it's better on another platform is ludicrous.
He admitted that he doesn't do console multiplayer so he played PC. He also scored Titanfall lower partially because of EA's Origin. He also isnt a fan of twitch shooters which are pretty big on consoles. Also watch the review, you'll see what I mean. In general he's not the best authority on FPS on any platform unless it is single player. Watch the review to see what I am talking about first though.
You realize that those are totally viable reasons to lower a games score right? Origin is a pain in the ass, as is Uplay and others like them. I generally prefer PC shooters over consoles shooters because a mouse and keyboard tend to be a better control solution for them, at least in my opinion.
Just because you disagree with his view on a game or genre doesn't mean he should stop doing reviews of them. It's actually quite funny you think that.
As long as he specifies that its only the PC version (like he did with COD) that he's judging then fine. Its not about disagreeing either, its the same reason I was frustrated with Ryan McCaffrey from IGN reviewing Alien: Isolation. He bitched and moaned about the whole game during the review. Its obvious that the game wasn't for him. Thats why he got bashed by readers. It was hard for him to stick to the review for the sake of other readers. This is why I say, he should review games that are more within our realm of understanding. My only gripe with Joe is him focusing on the all of the details when dealing with multiplayer shooters.
As I said, check out Robin Gaming's review to see what I mean opposed to Angry Joe.
I have seen both. I find both to be viable. Both back up their statements justly. I tend to side with Joe more on this though. I'm bored of most fps games. They all blend together. I'm always amazed at how much COD sells consoles. I enjoyed WAW, BO1 and BO2 was okay. The rest I could have done without. I find the multiplayer for the most part to be the same on all the COD games so for me the differentiating factors are the single player campaigns which many don't even play anymore. I heard a lot of good stuff about AW, but after looking into it closer, I'm just going to save my money and put it towards something I'll get more enjoyment out of.
