OMFG The media in this industry is just so F&*$ing stupid.

I was roaming the internet at work and came across 2 reviews that have peeked my intrest

http://www.gametrailers.com/gamereview.php?id=10364

http://www.gametrailers.com/gamereview.php?id=10562

GT is going to just sit there and critisize Uncharted 2 for not being "free roaming and only "polishing 10yrs done before game development". Then give Uncharted an 8.9 on game design. Not only that, GT is going to praise ODST on it's expanding gameplay and new twist of being a non-spartan and give ODST 9.2 on game design. Overall UC II did beat ODST by .4 points but seriously I haven't played UC II but UC I is better than ODST (IMO)...Only HALO CE did anything for gaming there rest have only continued the story. Kinda like the Matrix.

Sure Bungie made some Map Packs for multiplayer along the way but who really cares. I can't believe I actually go to this website and some-what support it. This just ****es me off so much I am sitting here at work writting about it. Plus I can't get all of my thoughts out. The level of bias-ness and stupidity in the video gaming media just never ceases to amaze me. Someone please tell me I'm wrong.

An 8.9 on game design....Really.....

I agree, the whole playing favorites is really getting annoying. The fact that it screws good upcoming series like Uncharted, from getting the credit it deserves just bothers me.

My Halo friend was saying how great ODST was, until he beat it. Said the game isnt worth 60 dollars at all and was a rip off that it wasnt just an expansion to Halo 3. I mean come on a 4 hour campeign and the game almost gets a 9? I know halo already lacks in the SP department, but 4 hours? It should of defently been an expansion.

Well it suits the typical bias of a lot of websites, vote down the competition or run articles all the time about the competition, a lot of technology websites run like that, talk all about Apple and when Microsoft does something, slam them. Or maybe they just wanted to stand out, increase their website traffic because of everyone hears they gave it an 8.9 they will then go to their website to see why.

Well, the thing you gotta remember too is that there are multiple reviewers working for the same site. Just because one reviewer gave U2 an 8.9 for game design, that doesn't mean it's comparable to the other reviewer that gave Halo a 9.2. Different people have different opinions, especially on something as subjective as 'game design'.

I guess what Nick says is true as well, different people do have different opinions

Nick does bring up a very interesting point but on these articles it doesn't tell you who wrote the review or who is narrorating the video review. So, there is no way to tell what the reviewer's history/prefrences are. At least with this site (PCN) and many others, we kinda know what the reviewer may like and dislike due his or her previous reviews.
