I mean you get the latest hyped up game coming out be it Halo Killzone MW2 UC Gears Etc Etc and according to the mainstream reviewers they not only live up to the hype but surpass it.
You get the game and start playing it and say to yourself wtf is wrong with me as I just dont get the wow factor the guy on IGN or Gamespot or whatever site got.
So you plod along anyway and then hit the blogs and realise hey I am not the only one under whelmed by this game.
So what is the story with the mainstream reviewers.
Are they under pressure by there editors to make sure the review is to there masters liking.
I mean I have stopped reading reviews of hyped games in the last few months and tend to wait for the real reviews IE gamers who have played it.
But I still get stung by the odd one unfortunatley.
So do you share my thoughts or are you happy with the status qou?
By the way the games I mentioned are only examples and not vindicative of said games.
