I was searching for black and white 2 tips when i stumbled across this pile off dog crap. http://eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=61124 Some moron takling like he knows it all, but it's all wrong to me. what maks it worse is this - http://eurogamer.net/article_discussion.php?article_id=61124 Hoardes of little innocent followers taking it all in, this shouldn't be allowed, it pisses me off he can get away with this, The number of people who it seems will miss out on how great this game is just because of this dick talking rubbish. and they are all believing it, without even making their own opinion, they just let him make up their opinions for them, fuck*ng parrots! :mad:
He's entitled to his opinion... People don't have to blindly follow what the reviewer says, usually I'd check more than 1 review.
I know thats why it pisses me off, alot of them aren't bothering looking at anything else, they just believe every word of it like its fact.
I think that review was very hitlery
I think he's giving it a bad review based on mere annoyances he had with it. He claims the whole game sucked because the conscience(s?) was/were there all the time and popped up all the time. I'll admit they did get on my nerves when the bad one kept putting his morbidly ugly face right up to the screen, but as I said that didn't make the game suck it just was a little annoying. He also says that The fact that the people don't build their own cities is dumb but you know what? I bet he'd whine about how he didn't get to choose how he got to build the cities if they built them for him. So my conclusion: He doesn't know how to properly review (or play for that matter) a game.
hey jamie, looking good =) i have to agree with the p*ssed of guy at the top, the reviewer probably used to work at LionHead but got made redundant, so he now has a vendetta. Im loving this game, and personally, the people who only read mister vendetta are losing out because of their petulence (soz about spelling!) If you check all the over reviews, they are pretty sound. May i suggest gamespot.com (shameless i know!) Ciao for now and see you tonight jamie ;)
bah! i just found out Jamie is a bloke =( i am a purple plum

I'd defend the reviewer and say that he's entitled to his opinion, as normally threads like these are made by fans who blindly believe everything about their game/movie/whatever is perfect, and that nobody can possibly have a negative opinion about it. The fact that you called him a 'little sh*t' reinforced that preconception. However, this isn't a review. A review tells you what a game is about, gives you details regarding how it works and what the aim/storyline is, and then goes on to list positives and negatives before finishing with a conclusion and a score which (should) reflect the contents of the review. This, on the other hand, is nothing more than a rant, and it's not even written with accurate knowledge of the game. It sounds very much to me like a reviewer who had already made up his mind before playing the game. He fills out most of the review with jokes and piss-taking, which don't really help anybody much. Had I not already played the game before reading this, I would have come out of this review knowing virtually nothing about it. That is, if he did indeed play it. I've noticed that a lot of things he listed are completely different to the way he described. So, carry on. But Tumerok89, you might want to calm down a bit -- this isn't really something worth getting riled up over; it's just a childish, unprofessional rant. Oh, and you might not want to worry too much about the comments from people agreeing blindly to the review either. It seems to me that all of them had, like the reviewer, already made up their minds about the game -- most of them seem to be anti-Lionhead zealots, much like the anti-EA and anti-Microsoft people you see around. Irrational and impossible to reason with, hating anything with a certain label on it no matter how good it is. Their loss, not ours.
to tell the truth i agree with that guys review he was a little to harsh but alot of it is kind of true its a great game and im loving it disbit the amount of lag i get after i play it for a few our but the guy is right and there are alot of stuff missing and broken and i also recon he could have also list the very good view point which do exsist but whos gonna go back in time and tell him that? overall i would personally give black and white 2 7/10 and its still a great game p.s i know they are adding MP but what about skirmish?
well I agree with Mr.Matt saying it is a childish rant I mean all he really talks about are comparasans (sorry bout spelling) between B&W 1 and B&W 2 also he rants about the about your conscience and well what I think is The conscience are just funny little characters designed to aid you through the power of repetetive (again sory abotu spelling) suggestion that si why on the start tutorial he goes through moving backwards and forwards/pitching up and down ect. many times because itis basiv pyscology that when you have something repeated to you it sticks in your head. and well that isd just about all I have to say on the matter just don't let this little pillack p*ss you guys off
