Re: Golly, Pie With Cheese Is Good

I know I've ranted about this before, but I just don't get how so many people can write reviews of games using early builds and just ignore the issues. Sure they're issues that will most likely be fixed for retail release. But what if they aren't? Is it really a good idea to review a game based on what you see AND what you're promised? Crazy.


So what if the review is a week later? At least it's accurate and isn't that what matters most. Promise I won't bring it up again... OK, my fingers were crossed.
