The whole point of his reviews is to look down on everything for comedic effect, so it bugs me when people cite him as an actual review.

I haven't watched it though... afraid doing so would just aggrivate me after that Destructoid review.

The game is not perfect and is certainly not a big budget AAA title, but if you like stealth gameplay... think early Splinte Cell and Thief... then you aren't thrown many bones lately, and this game is made for you.

Yahtzee really doesn't talk too bad about the game, more about the lack of choices in the game and how it just seems off at times. Watch it, its actually a decent review...

Yatzee needs to give out number scores to be taken remotely seriously.

Let me guess, that wouldn't be necessary if he liked the same kind of games you do, right?

If you actually pay attention to the content of what he says, he makes many valid points about a lot of games.

Can't make any sense of what he says half the time not to mention determine whether he's trying to make a valid point or simply trying to be witty. Putting a simple number would make his overall opinion of the games crystal clear and more respected but I don't think that's what he wants.

I understand him perfectly... I rather he give his opinion then a number. Too many people think the number is all that is needed and I usually try to ignore it. Someitmes good games get overlooked because it has a low score yet the reviewer just did not like some aspects of the games design.

Take IGNs review of Infamous, it got knocked acouple points in the audio because the reviewer did not like the sound of the characters voice... now I have no complaint with teh sound of his voice but if I just looked at the score without reading why it got the score I could have thought the sound portion of the game was weak when it really isn't.

I think numbers should be banned from reviews, and sites like metacritic made obsolete.

I give it 1 out of 7 due to a lack of highress ass screenshots, or nightgowns.

That's all this game is about, running around in a nightgown or staring at the main characters ass while the background characters make cheap porno-talk conversations in a poor attempt to fill the void that exists outside of said nightgownery and ass-fetishism features.
