This game came out with a relatively high "professional" review, and then the majority of the consumers who were ripped off by it give exactly the opposite review. All of this shilling in the game industry has reached really a disgusting and cynical state of affairs.
Can you be caertain its the majority? Or just a loud minority? Besides I've seen networks like g4 bring developers on their shows for interviews and to promote their game. When the game actually comes out they will often savage that very same game.
