Ever since that, I never took TA reviews seriously. I mean, SMAMC...5 stars, really? Basically the old game with an eye for freemium/IAPs and they gave that 5 stars too.
So yeah, now I just read them to get an idea, but give no shits about the ultimate score.
Yes, I'm saying that the 5 star rating for God of Blades is unwarranted as the 3.5 star rating for Minigore 2. They are both equally inaccurate, and I feel accuracy counts more than opinion when it comes to professional reviews. The ironic part is the actual review of the God of Blades talks about the bland gamely in the first paragraph but still receives a 5 star review, and the overall feel of the Minigore 2 review had me believe it was going to be at least 4 stars, until I scrolled down and saw the slighted 3.5. The context often contradicts the actual rating.
But before I get ran off the forum by the TA police, I should clarify that there are plenty of TA ratings I DO agree with. It's only the blatant injustices that I'm highlighting here.
