Ok, my two cents here:
Reviews, sorry, but I don’t trust them. Not because the industry is corrupt, and it is (look out those glossing amazing reviews for Overwatch with better notes than The Witcher 3 ) and not because these days are more reviews and critics that are just regular joes in websites or YouTube than profesional critics. It’s because reviews, even the most worked ones that tried to be impartial, are done by people with a certain taste and background in the matter at hand.
I mean, I can see a review for a movie or a videogame or even a book but until I don’t have it in my hands I can’t judge properly, not if is good or bad, but if it is my cup of tea.
That’s the most important thing: You don’t have to try to get something that is perfect or the best, you have to find something that you like.
These days reviews doesn’t look to be in my orbit so much. People pummeled intto the ground both Batman v Superman and X-men Apocalypse and I liked those movies. I know they had errors or things that could be better but heck, I had fun, I was invested. Even when I dislike WoW with passion (I love the three old Warcraft games but WoW since Burning crusade makes me want to vomit in my mouth), I enjoyed the movie.
And about games the same. People hyped a lot about Overwatch but my hype died when I played it on beta. It became a one trick pony that bored me fast. In the other hand I love Battleborn and Paladins from Hi-Rez is something that I play daily and get piss every time a Blizzard fanzombie call it copy of Overwatch or call a character copy for the most absurd reasons (like a jackass in Paladins’ Youtube channel, in a comment, saying Androxus was a copy of McCree… just because both use a revolver. Like a godhunter demon that dashes even in mid air, returns damage while blocking it and with an ult that charge the weapon for a couple of huge hits is the ■■■■■■■ same as a cowboy with a stun and a aimbot instakill ult… ■■■■ logic )
But… in conclussion, is that: we are human and even trying to be unbiased, we can’t. That review smells a lot like ‘Not my cup of tea’ and ‘I don’t like it because I don’t have what I want in the game’ and is perfectly good but not as a compass to select if the game is good or not.
