Yep, Kieron Gillen's review of the game is SomethingAwful's 3rd worst game review of the year!

Check it out.

I quite enjoyed him ripping into the review, until he commented on the AI. He really should play it before he makes that comment. The rest is good :D

Who was it that said "there is no such thing as bad publicity"?

nah edd, he seems to be twisting Kerons words then attacking them, like when he says driv3r should be good because it mixes GTA with other stuff. Keron never said post-genera was a "magic formular" and RTS-RPG would be better than RTS or RPG just that its good to see people experimenting again.

It's true though, as a game review it's pretty bollocks.

Bollocks? I think the word you're looking for is non-formulaic.

The only reason I have any respect for something awful is that SA vs Ebaums debate. Other than that, they kinda suck based on what you see here.

First of all, the article in question
http://www.somethingawful.com/articles.php?a=3468

Secondly this,
'Something Awful, by retards, for retards!'

No, seriously.
baffles me to no end. Such an incomprehensibly ignorant statement. You are labeling hundreds of thousands of viewers by one person's opinion.

I can't see how anyone can be offended by this article, not even Kieron Gillen. The article points out how uneffective the review is to the common person because it explains so little of the game. There is humor there, I don't care if you've never laughed in your life.

If anything, this is positive press. It's Something Awful!
