quote Dr Killfrenzy
This kind of behavior by Eidos only gives software pirates a good reason to crack the game, so they can tell the world they did it so people can honestly make up their mind about a certain game before buying it...
I don't see how they're related. Anyway that's what demos are for.

While it's troubling to have a thing like "review inflation" be an issue in the market, it is not a secret practice among developers and gamer review boards. It's a process folks, called Marketing!! Hype a game up, give a good review on your site, reep the rewards of revenue from developers who want you to review their games and consumers wh'll buy your mag to know more about the game. It's a system of companies cratching each others backs folks.. not rocket science..it's buisness. A fine example of such false hype is from Microsoft and Lionhead with their ever popular over hyped game Fable and Fable 2. The reviews changed from Peter Molnahuex being the virtual Rpg messiah to being it's venomous Anti-christ of false promises directly after the christmas season. In conclusion, Edios (if guilty) hasn't done what everyone else hasn't already done a million times before. The simple solution to this kind of marketing is to stop listening or reading reviews and experence the games yourselves by renting, demoing, or buying the game on your own. I personally think Batman Arkham Asylum is well deserving of its hype, you may feel differently. Think for yourselves people.
