Superb assessment as ever Psyringe I find the most ironic part of it, is the collective amnesia experienced upon release of a new franchise installment. Reviews will say things like "some of the obvious faults of the predecessor have been rectified, and then much improved upon"...."the far from perfect ai is now a true test of the players skill"...."several clumsy mechanisms have been removed and elegant streamlined ideas have been substituted"....etc.etc. BUT, if you look at their reviews of the previous installment, NONE of the above would have been mentioned. The previous installment would have received glowing accolades, scores of 9/10 or 95/100, and would have reviews ending "another candidate for GOTY" etc.etc. It's disgusting really. And how long can it go on? There's the famous story of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf", or in modern day terms (for you NFL fans and particularly any fellow NY Jets diehards)- "The Ryan who cried Rex". Basically for the rest of you, the NY Jets coach, Rex Ryan, guaranteed a Superbowl win at the start of the 2009 season. Didn't happen. He then did the same in 2010. Again didn't happen. Yet again he's done it this season. Now as much as I hope he's right this year, it's becoming an embarrasment. He's becoming (become) a figure of mockery. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool everyone three times, call him Rex. How many more times, can reviewers and marketeers call Wolf, before we call foul. Don't believe the hype.
