In Response To: Re: Ars Technica pans ODST (Narcogen)
Ok now that I've had sleep I couldn't say it any better myself. Leave it to you to break it down so simply and eloquently.
Bungie has never been perfect. However there are some things which have always been great with them. That one thing is the music. Also as said reading the review he admits that his first play through was on normal with a friend. Then he makes it a point to mention the friends negative remarks. So he wasn't exactly being open minded it seemed.
Another thing I noticed. I went back and checked out his Halo 2 review there. I'm sorry but it even though it was good for the most part was not a good review. He managed to list the graphics as both a positive and a negative because well they weren't high rez like his computer can do. Then he said a negative was that it didn't have a PC port. Keep in mind though at the time of his Halo 2 review there was not a Halo 2 Vista. His Halo 2 review was pretty much just as negative as this one on the grounds it wasn't a PC shooter.
So how can I or anyone for that matter take his reviews seriously when he has shown that he's obviously not a big console gaming fan at least when it comes to first person shooters?
