Or more to the point for this example, even play much of them before they rate the game? In the new issue of game informer, they review quantum redshift for the Xbox, and say "its too slow, and only 2 laps per race..." Anyone who has this game and has spent any time with it knows that playing each level of difficulty, you earn points to upgrade your ship, and this game becomes ANYTHING but slow. Honestly one of the fastest games i have ever seen and becomes EXTREMELY challenging. The number of laps also increases with each difficulty. So the difficulty level selection is not like starting a whole new game as it is in most games.Any power boosts you have carry over to the next level of difficulty.. so i ask... do reviewers play through games or just simply play for a while and slap a "review" dowm?... In the long run, for me...it doesnt matter what they say if i really want the game, but this DOES make a difference to some, who may not get the game now because of inaccurate comments like the ones in the review. By the way... i know game informer is not the best mag out there, but ive seen things like this in other mags too. thoughts?
