Great game too. Bought day one without any regret. My guts were right about this one.
A review was, when I started gaming, writers trying to help gamers to decide if a game is worth their time and money. Today they are treated as a show in themselves, an opportunity for the writer to shine. And that is not very helpful to undecided consumers.
I am not sure what the future reserves, and if reviews continues this trend of being less and less helpful to make conscious purchase, I will say this:
Reviews doesn't matter. Don't base your purchases on them. Play demos, watch YouTube, ask a friend that have a copy to let you play it a bit. This will be way more helpful than any writer's opinion he/she tossed on a site. Above all remember: nobody knows what you like more than yourself.
