That's pretty embarrassing for Daemon, now the game is stuck with a 6.5 from ign because he didn't play through the game properly and tried to cover it up, very poor show indeed.

At least they removed the false part, though there should an explanation as to what happened at the end of the review.

What usually doesn't happen is the guy straight up lying through his teeth about what difficulty he played on.

Eurogamer was busted for something similar a few years ago

When we read the hostile review by Ed Zitron, one thing became apparent: he had not played the game at all. Eurogamer readers and Darkfall players are posting bullet lists of factual errors in the story. The reviewer hadn't even figured out the very basics of the game before he wrote about it. We checked the logs for the 2 accounts we gave Eurogamer and we found that one of them had around 3 minutes playtime, and the other had less than 2 hours spread out in 13 sessions. Most of these 2 hours were spent in the character creator since during almost every one of the logins the reviewer spent the time creating a new character. The rest of the time was apparently spent taking the low-res screenshots that accompanied the article. At no point did this reviewer spend more than a few minutes online at a time.

I think many reviewers are like that, unfortunately. Sometimes they have a lot of games to play so they rush through the game or simply do not beat it from start to finish. Sad but I'm not suprised by IGN. No one remembers the Joystiq Nier review?

There is one reviewer that posts here in particular that I won't mention that never got to beat the last chapter in MGS Peace Walker (the chapter after the first credits roll). In fact he thought the game only had 4 acts while it has 5.

That's what's so horrible about this. The weight that an IGN score carries in the gaming community is devastating to a game like this. :(

Ugh - so unprofessional. The writer should be fired on the spot.

How can people put a game on casual/easy difficulty then review it. I know this time of year there are tons of titles to review but that still seems unacceptable. Then again, I don't read reviews for the most part so I'm not their audience.

I can understand them doing it on an easy difficulty considering the number of games they have to try and play through.
