    How does the debug review kit differ to the retail console? Just interested.

    Apparently out of date firmware making the Motion+ not respond accurately...

    Well, GST is a buy this weekend for me now anyway, had been struggling to make a decision after the conflicting reviews.

    Good call EG, but it does beg the question how a broken game (at least with the debug machine) even managed to score a 5!

    Maybe they can edit the old review down to a 3/10 before editing it back to 7 or 8 on Monday...

    Good news. Now can you review Zoo Keeper for a third time? I forgot how the game is like.

    Zing!

    Have you hired a writer in the last few days bengali?

    For Folklore the review was an import version, doesn't mean they should review it again.
    Yeah, it's not like it was a Japanese copy of a story-based game reviewed by a reviewer who doesn't read/speak Japanese or something terrible like that.

    Of course, Folklore isn't a high-profile title from EA, so who cares?

    OK now the VT review has been pulled. How about doing both as a head to head Wimbledon-style face off!

    Well done EG for admitting the mistake. I wonder if some other reviews of GST elsewhere were done on a debug kit with out of date firmware?

    Good to see EG being big enough to admit an error - good call.

    Chromehounds next!

    I'll also have a 7/10 for Circle of Doom and an 11 for Stalker whilst you're at it, YOU CHARLATANS.
