...when you read a review talking about your favourite game whose author hates it, says it`s sucks and says anything negative about it? About me it depends on how the author says it. If the cons he notes are reasonable, I`ll understand that. But if he says cons that are false and incorrect or very irrelevant, I`ll get mad and offended.

That makes me very annoyed, because i useually go off what those guys say, because i presume they know what they are on about. It makes me feel like i bought the wrong game. But if the game is cool then no harm done and the auther can go shove the disc up his rear end.

When reading a review, you have to remember that what you are reading is someone’s personal opinion of a game and not everyone is going to share your same view, and because of that, the reviews don't really phase me much although they can help you make a decision on whether or not to buy it. The thing that does piss me off is if they either praise or slag off a game they have only played briefly or not at all, usually due to being influenced by a large bag sitting on their desk with a "$" on it.

I personally don't care what they review it as, as long as I like it is all that matters

I try not to listen to much as to what they say. I know what types of games I like and how I would like them to be. I do look at reviews cause it does help me but I always look at more then 1. And if possible when I wanna buy a game I first play a demo or download the game or play a bit at the store,Then if it`s a good one I`ll buy it. I`ve seen lots of reviews of games that I didn`t like while the person making the review was totally sold by it and vice versa.. I`m not getting mad for that,they just have an other opinion.

It bothers me not. They are entitled to their opinion, negative or positive. I hate some games that some consider to be good. Red Faction, anybody? PC Gaming World put it higher than Half-Life, the heretics, but it was abysmal. I like some games that others hate, for example KotOR would conflict with a certain person's (on these very forums) hatred of all RPGs, even those he hasn't played.

Which is why I only read a review to get an idea of what the game is about. Some technical problems can be noted. Anything based on opinion I largely ignore. Then I play a demo, and if I like the demo, buy the game.

Usually I get really, really mad and offended something like when some lame ass says something in his review about one of my favourites, GTA VICE CITY, he said:

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Like as if it`s hazardous and radioactive...geez.

An example review I absolutely despise is this sort of (GTA VICE CITY)review: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/review/R45306.html

What really insults and offends me the most is that he said false bullshit and lies in the review repeatedly that is "too much cursing".

I have never heard so much swearing in a game in my life, this game was like a Jay and Silent Bob movie WITHOUT HUMOR.
By the time you've heard the main character say the same threatening string of curse words, it just gets boring and redundant.
story wasn't as great as in Part Three (just not enough to do, and too much cursing),
The voices weren't bad, but the cursing made them worthless.
It was the same as GTA 3...with more cursing, and less to do, less to explore.

But I ask you...does GTA Vice City have a lot of swearing? NO! There is little to no swearing in this game when what I mostly remember being said in this game was:

"Tommy Vercetti? Huh, shit."-Sonny Forelli

"Lance Vance? Poor bastard."-Tommy Vercetti

There are a few more out there but this time he really got it all wrong. Maybe the guy`s just too sensitive.

OK, so there are a few points in his review that are agreeable, but if I had the chance I`d kill him right away.(Just joking)

Hmmm.... i have an idea,

If its online, then 1. Track the author down in forums, 2. Challenge them to a game the DO like, and 3. Own their ass!
