Re: The Witcher 2
I'm surprised to see some reviews for it already, especially those posted a mere day after release, since the game is likely 40+ hours long. I don't think any media got early copies, so although I'm happy to see it getting good scores I do think some people are rushing through the game or maybe not even finishing it before posting a review.
In a way it works against the game if reviews roll in at various times, since later ones are more inclined to score it lower to spite those who posted theirs early, and since the game isn't backed by a big publisher there's no reason to overrate the game like they do with most big titles backed by big publishers (which we all know they do often).
User score seems positive for now, at any rate.
