Eurogamer Reviews

    I can't understand Eurogamers reviewing policy.

    COD Black Ops 2 has been out since yesterday and still no sign of a review on the website!

    Other online gaming sites have their reviews out already so why has Eurogamer not got round to it yet?

    I could understand it with an obscure title but with one that is highly anticipated and hugely popular I find it bizarre not to have it covered by now.

    The only idea I have is that the indications are not good for the game and in order to not have a negative impact on the launch (and for that matter Activision advertising) the review is delayed?

    Can anyone else shed any light on the way this works as it seems to happen quite often getting a lot of hype in the news and then delayed reviews.

    It's late because they didn't want to go to some VIP retreat thing to review it, apparently. Was mentioned in some Editor's Blog somewhere.

    Read the Blops 1 review, but change the "1" into a "2" in your little mind.

    Yes it's because EG didn't go to the review event.

    Via EG's Twitter account: The Black Ops 2 review is due tomorrow and the Vita version is to be reviewed on Friday.

    I think EG should reverse the policy so the comment idiots don't stray onto the forum asking why the review is delayed...

    One thing I would like to see is placeholder pages when games are released. So the "Black Ops 2" review page for instance would have a bit of text stating when the review will be up.

    at least that way we would know if EG are intending to review the game or ignoring it.

    Just go buy the damn game, you shoot motherfuckers in the face, what more do you need to know?

    Don't bother buying it. You can just as easily shoot motherfuckers in the face in MW3 or blops or World at War blah blah. Just stop buying this shit and they will stop making more and that will make me happy.

    So make me happy.

    OP, you should change your name to bullet

    I'll tell you the score, it got an 8.

    Functionally the same game
    Game engine looking tired
    Multiplayer still fun - just enough innovation to justify repurchase

    What they say every year, really.

    Does anybody actually read this site? Op has been answered in so many threads and articles it isn't funny :D

    @ecureuil I need a review for the vita game. I need to know how much steam is rising from it.
