I'd like to point out something ironic that we'll see here.
We're gonna have every PS3 fan on this forum comment on this thread.
They'll say things like "another square-enix screw-up" or "square sucks" or "MS bought another flop."
However, the irony is that if OXM had given this game a 10/10, these same people would say "It's OXM, of course they gave it a 10/10," and "Let's wait for some real review sites, this one source isn't credible," or, "OXM, enough said."
The irony doesn't lie in their hypocrisy. It's expected. What's ironic is how kids today couldn't hate corrupt government, intolerance, special interests, and bias more than they do now, yet any one of these folks would be far more bias and corrupt given the same responsibilities as any government official in any government.
I can tell you the people on this website, that you could trust IRL with any kind of social responsibility, and those that you couldn't. Fanboyism has nothing to do with what console you like. It's about the type of person that you are.
Official Xbox Magazine is just that. An Official Xbox Magazine.
When an exclusive gets a 10/10, it can mean two things:
1) The game is amazing
2) The game needs to sell well
When an exclusive gets a 7/10, it can mean one thing:
1) The game is not that great
2) The game needs to sell badly
Why would they want that? So a 10/10 is less reliable than a 7/10. There are more overrated games than underrated games.
And by the way, you're overreacting. People on an internet forum complaining about OXM is not going to create another Hitler. I swear.
