Welcome to "Backhanded Box Quotes," a collection of super pissed-off user reviews from people just like you! Whoa, whoa, don't take that personal.


Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

Released: May 22

Critic: Error_317002 (Metacritic)
"Feels more like Gears of Duty: Future Ops."
Score: 4.


Critic: tigger (Metacritic)
• "I can best describe it as a bad Gears of Ghostduty."
Score: 4.

Critic: pilotin909 (Amazon)
• "Seems like they tried to jump on the Call of Duty Black Ops bandwagon. I HATE Call of Duty."
Score: 1 star

Dragon's Dogma

Released: May 22

Critic: The Gentleman (Metacritic)
• "This is a terrible game wrapped up in the ideas for a good game."
• "The AI tag alongs are about as helpful as taking the pill in the third trimester of pregnancy!"
Score: 3.


Critic: nicknamesbestupid (Amazon)
"I was just about to open my copy of Dragon's Dogma, which I had pre-ordered some weeks back, when I saw news that Capcom admits that this game has on-disc DLC. I knew I was taking a gamble when pre-ordering this game, since this IS Capcom we're talking about. But since this was an RPG and not a fighting game I thought it was worth the risk. Well, guess I was wrong.

Sorry, Capcom. I, as a responsible consumer, refuse to support such unethical business practices. I shall be returning my copy to Amazon ASAP."
Score: 1 star.


Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II

Released: May 16

Critic: NextGenFilter (Metacritic).
"The game [feels] like a bad Mario romhack"
Score: 1.

The only thing that's sort of keeping me from playing Dragon's Dogma is the seemingly sluggish framerate (based on the demo I played). That, and Diablo III.

BTW, why no Backhanded Box Quotes for Diablo III?
