IGN Reviewer has Bad Day, Flames 203

IGN reviewer Steve Butts (Please, no jokes - were all adults here ) has posted a highly negitive review of S&M 203: Night of the Raving Dead, saying many crazy things like "The magic wanes. Here's hoping it can be resurrected." and "It was inevitable that the Sam and Max series would slip. After so many quality episodes, we really can't be surprised that this latest sees the quality dip a bit, particularly in terms of story and humor.". Okay, i just clipped the few first lines of the article, but i think you guys get the point: That this guy completely missed the point alltogether. Put aside the fact that this "review" from a professional gaming site came several weeks after the titles release, it really just seems he just going throught the motions of reviewing a title, one that apperently he had no interest in playing.

Yes its true that not everyone likes everything but i honesly feel that this game (so far one of the best in the series imho) got the short end of the stick from IGN and needed to share that opinion

See it Here

Im done ranting now

the funny thing is I agreed with a lot of his review and then he just slapped a low score on at the end, he didn't really explain where the story or jokes fell flat for him.

Low score? He gave it 6.8 out of 10!

You're forgetting that gamers and game reviewers have no idea what a normal distribution is.


You mean the way the sea stays steady as a rock and the buildings keep washing up and down? Yes I thought that was odd.

It often seems like the scale goes from 5 to 10 in their heads.

In other Sam & Max reviewer-related joy, I'm happy to say that John Walker has stopped reviewing the series for PC Gamer. I can't remember who took his place for 202, but whoever it was actually felt like he liked the games and didn't want them to burn in hell - unlike JW.
