Re: The Witcher 2
I don't always agree with him either, but he at least displays a consistent approach and is actually a reviewer who you can easily identify for his style. Most reviewers (literally, like 95% of them) are similar, all write the same, sound the same, and always, without fail, overrate poor quality games.
In my mind, at this stage in gaming media, it's much better to be wrong for underrating games, rather than overrating them.
But yeah, Vanquish obviously is better than 5/10, and The Witcher 2 is likely 7/10 at worst. I think he likes to go as low as he thinks he can go to get his point across, but that's just how he rolls.
