Are any of the rumours true?

I can't believe they let this franchise go to the dogs, but did they add some sort of multiplayer? That usually spells doom for the SP experience.

Wait for the Destructoid Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty Ghosts reviews. How much do you want to bet they get high scores for repetitive, rehashed garbage?

Honestly though, I finally got to play this game after reinstalling Win7 and I have to say: it's a button masher disguised as an intelligent game.

I can't say that I bought the game...

But is there some kind of trend going on here? Critics rating games high..then the player base rating is nowhere near the critics rating.

Mind you on metacritc this is a 8.1 from the player base so far.

Yeah, it's called studios are now paying critics to review their games at a minimum rating, at least that's been rumoured quite a bit for certain games/franchises past few years.

Most definitely happening. Not outright bribery but it's all tied into the advertising revenue. Give them a shitty review and they pull their ads.

I'm liking this game.

Honestly, I dont even know if its as overt as that in a lot of cases. I think it has more to do with the benchmarks. Lets take Call of Booty Big Black Co.....err Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Compared to BO1 it was a damn fine game. Compared to most FPS'ers released that year...it was a solid 9. Compared to ALL games it was a 4 (or a 2 if you compare to BorderLands 2). BUT is it fair to compare an apple to an orange? What Im saying is...if the whole genre is shit can 'you' as a reviewer write off an entire genre? Does that do a disservice to a core group of your readers.... Or do you try and give FPS'ers the info they need to make a good decision? It will only change when a GOOD first person shooter is released and CoD number 99999923 numbers will tank.

Personally I think all single rating systems suck. Give it a 'genre' rating and an overall rating. Then its fair to both players of the genre and new people looking for new games.

Warner Bros. apologizes for Arkham Origins? game-breaking bugs | VG247
Is anyone else getting game breaking bugs like the camera teleporting outside the map? Sounds pretty bad.
