Default PCgamer slammed Quake4 ?

Saw this on the Fear official forum so no idea if its true but why would he lie..

Just hit news stands. PC Gamer just slammed Quake 4 with a 70% review. Said it was tired and uninspired. Gee FEAR got a 92% - which one will I be buying

If thats true that must be the most medicore score given to such a huge title in recent times... I can't remember the last time PCGamer gave a bad score to a game as big as this.

I know I won't be getting FEAR. That game doesn't seem to interesting to me.
And I could care less for great AI. A game can be fun even if it's AI isn't doing loops in the air and dodging bullets.

Besides, ID's games always had the atmosphere to make them unique, no?

I hate to say it, but I really don't think there is a single "unique" aspect to this game. It LOOKS like Doom 3, it's a generic space-based "kill the alien menance" first person shooter--something that has been done to death and beyond.

Honestly, what did you expect? There really was never anything unique about the Quake series other than the graphics, and this game's graphics were unique over a year ago when it was first released...as Doom 3.

Raven has made many high quality games, most of which are my favorites. I haven't given up yet.

I agree, fear is a " the ring rip-off ", and it looks quite cheesy to me. OOOH a little girl in the dark, big f*ckin deal. So we have the matrix bullet time, mixed with little girls this forum is so "fear"ful of....I dunno man, to each his own..

Quake 4 looks simply awesome, and the fact that pcgamer rated it a 70% doesnt bother me at all, because well....it's pcgamer....these are the same schlucks that gave doom 3 like a 90 or 95%....

1.) It has a little girl... that is about its only similarity to Ringu.
2.) Matrix didn't invent slow motion... stop acting like it did.
3.) We get it... you don't like the game.
