    Jesus Christ, that 4players review was brutal.
    Sadly, nothing new. The stuff was clear since it was announced.

    We people in Europe seem to like our RPGs brutal, complicated and deep.
    This is no Lebensraum for Bioware Dreck.

    10-page review of typical German thoroughness. Nice scale too; 0-19% is inzufficient, 40-59% ja zat is zufficient, weil 60-74% is zatisfaktory. They probably rate porn the same way

    Nah, that's Germany for you, where most of the population seems to suffer from permament Sauerkraut poisoning. EDIT: I didn't make through the wall of text, since the review starts with the boring stuff (how characters look during dialogues and all the emotions), but the summary isn't that great either. Complaining that the world does not react to your character enough is valid criticism, but they compare it to Skyrim of all games.

    Then Episode IV... oh, wait.
    Don't be so picky as I don't see other way to refer only to this specific movie, as it both followed plenty of teenager fantasy tropes and title in question had a very "surprising" similarities to it. Not sure about how further books related to ESB and RotJ, as I only knowledgeable about the movie and only by some lulzy reviews, sunce I couldn't bring myself to watch it.

    Apologies if repost, The Telegraph slammed the game and gave it 60/100:

    I love the BDF (Bioware Defense Force) and their attacks on the reviewer:

    lol i stopped taking them seriously when they gave fallout 3 87? 88? or something like that:M same score for Oblivion. than couple years later they started bashing any AAA titles just for the sake of publicity.

    Isn't that almost exactly what one of the advertising plants that was caught out during DAII said?

    Yep, mirrors the BDF damage control when DA2 got slammed. They will be trying to pad the user score up on metacritic tomorrow.

    They have better consistency than most other sites. Also Fallout 3 was a good game, just not a good Fallout game.

    The mushroom eating brats were retarded. Todd sperg levels of retarded. Still, I like Bethesda much more than Biowhore.

    How long do we give it till people that criticise DAI are accused of homophobia, transphobia or misogyny? I seem to remember that tactic being used a lot when DA2 was getting criticised.

    Fuck off, there are like 4 negative reviews out there and dozens of positive ones - it's natural to question the negative ones, especially if it's something like 59%... From what I could gather, the game suffers from too much grind and fed-ex quests in first few hours, its main plot is unoriginal and there's too much shit going on, thus lacking focus (quality) in a particular department... Everything else said about this game in every single review I read (positive or negative) is vague, because those faggots out there fail to give good arguments or dive deep when analyzing (even the german one). It's either praising or bitching, but without capability to back this up (I love how they praise the C&C, yet they never tried the different path to see if it's actually making difference...).

    I'm referring less to specific reviews and more how Bioware/EA will do damage control.

    Fallout 3 is one of the worst game I have ever played and I'm not trying to be edgy here. Skyrim is a fucking masterpiece compare to that abomination.

    THE COMBAT FUCKING SUCKS. TACTICAL MODE FUCKING SUCKS. DRAGON AGE 2 IS A MUCH BETTER GAME. THIS GAME IS NOT ENJOYABLE AT ALL.

    Those are my first impressions playing the new Faggot Age with mouse + keyboard.
