His review of CoJ:BiB was way too negative. I really loved this game and fully believe this is better than fucking wolfenstein.
" I only tried the demo, and it seems like a fun western rental. I imagine the online is intolerably slow. I love the cover system, though. "Online is decent, as far as connectivity and fun goes. I liked the cover too; it made me wonder why it got so much flak for being awkward.
The problem with Call of Juarez is that it's really hard to review - the start is crap, the "tutorial", corn-hiding and shooting horseback feels awkward and like it's straight from a budget game. After that, the game kicks into the right trail and it's almost pure win, but some ideas feel a bit underdeveloped.
Besides, only Nemesis cares about stars. It's all about the reviews here - there are plenty of games when in the review you can feel so much entusiasm mixed with a bit of disappointment which can't be reflected in stars.
I bought it and enjoyed it all of the way through,there were even some moments that made me lol,I never tried the multiplayer,but I beat the single player game.I don't review games so I don't know how many "stars" it should have gotten,but I really liked it so.....
He was pretty positive about the game wasn't he? I thought it was a really good game too, and I don't really remember Jeff saying it wasn't?

Did you read Jeff's review of it? It was very positive. Sure, he pointed out it's flaws, but he was largely positive about the game, and gave it a decent score. And at the end of the day, it's just an opinion. You can't expect Jeff's taste in games to line up perfectly with yours.
Who gives a flying fuck about 'scores' given to games. Read the review and talking about the points he raised in it. If you're going to argue about review scores go to Gamespot and whine why a game 'was given a 9.1 when it clearly is a 9.6+, reviewer biased to give such low score???'.
You should have taken the time to think about this and instead said, "I do not agree with Jeff's review," rather than coming out and saying "it's off the mark." Sorry you're butt-hurt, but that's your own fault for being unable to enjoy games and leaving it at that, not Jeff's, for giving his more informed opinion on a game.
For instance, I enjoy the Dynasty Warriors series, even though it consistently receives scores that indicate it's rather low quality. Do I usually agree with these reviews? Yes! But it doesn't stop me from still finding my own enjoyment out of the game.
