Wow, this was a bad review. It's full of grammar/spelling errors, specific spoilers abound, and the jokes are way too forced. You also exaggerate to make points (like the enemy grenades bit), which some people prefer to call "lying".

On the plus side, I thought it was funny how you spend the whole review attacking the game and then end up recommending it. That gave me a genuine chuckle.

EmP made a big long feedback comment for the first review this guy posted here explaining everything he did wrong, and he ignored it entirely and has kept making the same mistakes. If everyone on staff believes that he's a lousy writer (and I'd be inclined to agree) then I might suggest that rejecting his next review may be the best way to get his attention.

I think a better question is why his reviews are even accepted in the first place if they're all that bad. I can understand accepting the first review for the sake of leaving feedback or giving second chances or whatever, though.

The score is better than the other 3 reviewers who are constantly sucking up to Infinity Ward though.

I would actually score it even lower.

And don't forget the MS Paint scetches embedded in your review.

Okay, good, I'm not the only one who thought this was an overblown review. There are actually some things I like about it. There is an attempt, early on, to make a clear definition of what the game's failings are which is nicely to the point. Unfortunately, the validity of these points is called into question by the writer's extreme and obvious ego (the signature at the end of the review made my eyebrows arch spectacularly) and by some random mentions that seem totally out of place (example: the music).

Just went through and read his other reviews. Yeah, probably not worth it to keep hosting this guy's stuff. Someone called it in a previous feedback thread. This guy is obviously trying to leech off of the increased professionalism of Honest Gamer. Otherwise, why keep pointing readers back to his site? If he would actually make an appearance and comment on some of these comments, it might seem a bit better.
