Some gamers may have certain expectations in regards to the quality (or lack thereof), of the new Devil May Cry title. But that’s no excuse to fraudulently post a review, in which you defame the game based on expectations and made up assumptions.
According to Ninja Theory’s Twitter account, faux DmC reviews are currently in the wild:
The whole point of a review is to give you an informed opinion about a game – you may disagree with the opinion, but at least it should be informed. A review is supposed to help you determine whether a specific title is worth your time and money.
So, how do you properly distinguish a fake review from a legitimate review? Well, unfortunately there generally aren’t any solid ways to do so, other than trying to judge the legitimacy of a website. In this case, the embargo for online website reviews of DmC is still up, so any online reviews published now are highly questionable.
Would you like to start reading pretend-reviews from PlayStation LifeStyle? I haven’t actually played Duke Nukem: Forever, but, Duke’s chiseled chest, and the inappropriate humor are right up my alley – that’s worth a 10/10, isn’t it?
