Could not take his review seriously. He talks about no emotions and disconnected. Since the leaks and what happens to joel, he mentally could not deal with what followed. Part of me thinks his mind was distracted because of what has been going on in his personal life dramas. But his review and justification is a joke.
So you're saying we shouldn't trust his judgement because he's had to deal with false sexual assault allegations? This is a new low people.
Angry Joe is not a journalist, so his score 6/10 shouldn't be taken for granted however he does bring up good points. Joe is a gamer and speaks outside the circle jerk of reviewers so just like the DreamCast Guy (7/10) who also loved the 1st game, he was also no fan of the sequel. Add Jim Sterling to that list as well. Anyway, the game was enjoyable, just don't go in expecting an amazing story.
I'll also throw in ACG giving it a 'wait for sale', Yahtzee just recently ripping it a new a-hole, and a couple people I never watched like Skill Up and Upper Echelon Games who gave some really good critiques from what I could tell (avoiding spoilers).
It's more than just a few outliers here. Reviews post-launch from both critics and online personalities have been far more mixed than they'd have us believe.
