Is there a way to filter reviews by reviewer?

#1 Posted by CoheedFavorHouse (670 posts) -

Alright, so here's the deal. I was having a discussion with a friend about Brad's Fable III review. I felt the score was a little unfair, but when I went back, him and I had a majority of the same complaints, though he felt they impacted the game a little more than I did. The same situation for Final Fantasy XIII. So, I wanted to go back and read a few of his reviews on other games, to see if this is a continuing trend. But, as far as I can tell, I can't sort them by reviewer. is there something I'm missing? 
 
On the likely chance there's not, does anyone know of specific games that Brad has reviewed? Preferably ones that he gave mediocre reviews, but any game will do.

p.s. You are going to get shitted on by people with sense, so much. Good luck. Find a trowel.

@Cirdain: with sense so much?

No option that I know of. Also Cirdain's comment made no sense at all. 
 
This does nicely illustrate the point that the text of a review is really the important part though.

Go to this page. It says "by Brad Shoemaker" on all the reviews by Brad Shoemaker.

Lost planet 2 was a problematic one for people too. It's a personal opinion. Get to know Brad, and his perspective on games. Then, his reviews will tell you everything you need to know about the game. Same goes for the others, Jeff, Vinny, Ryan and Dave.

Hey he liked it better than Lost Planet 2 ..

In all seriousness though it's an opinion, get over it.

i feel like people are taking this the wrong way. i'm not upset, or disappointed in what Brad has to say. I fully understand reviews are opinions. I just think that it's funny that him and I will pick out almost all of the same flaws in a game, and I just wanted to see if that was a coincidence in those two games, or if most games are like that. The number score doesn't matter to me as much, though it does provide an interesting insight into what sort of flaws ruin a game for him

I think it has something to do with being a reviewer. He plays SO many games that aren't broken, I'm guessing an otherwise fun game with major, inexplicable flaws (like the outright stupid menu design of Fable III) is a bit harder to forgive for him than it is for you.

Nintendo did some special art when they sent Art Academy to reviewers.

This is where you would go, but for some reason staff reviews don't appear in there profile. Some one should tell the top men.
