Is GB reviewing this?

#1 Posted by Deusoma (3001 posts) -

Don't get me wrong, this isn't me whining that the review isn't out yet, I'm just confused. I was definitely under the impression that Giant Bomb was gonna do a review of this one. Is that still/was that ever in the cards, or was the Quick Look with Jeff and Alex all they're gonna do? I was actually delaying my purchase until GB's review, and it just occurred to me 'hang on, it still isn't out yet'. I would fully understand if it was a Dante's Inferno-style hangup delaying the review. 
 
Anyone got any word one way or the other?

I think that someone (Brad? Jeff maybe?) was working on it, but decided to drop it for another game. At least that's what I remember reading somewhere.

@Deusoma: Alex Navarro was supposed to review it for GB. Judging by his twitter he seems to hate it so maybe its best that the review stay stillborn.

I thought Alex might have reviewed it.  I guess we will wait and see.  From first hand experience, the game is good.

I don't think they got it before release and there are plenty of other games coming out they could review.  This happened with Red Dead Redemption.
