I love NS2. That said, his criticism of the game is totally justified. Matches can easily be ruined by poor commanders, and there is a very steep learning curve to attempt to be one of those commanders and/or become a good player in the on-foot game. The loading is also a real problem. Personally, if I were to review it, I would weigh those facts a lot lighter given the evidence that there is a stellar game within, but really, it's his review, and if those problems constitute a 6.0 experience to him, then more power to him! To me, it's one of the best things I've seen in multi-player in quite a while - learning curve and internet jerks be damned.
I see nothing factually inaccurate in that review aside from him getting the price wrong as well - understandable given the fact that he probably didn't transact for the game himself.
@Akrid: So I just need to get faster? Would bum rushing him help if I know he's obviously walking up behind me?
Oh yeah, @cspanick is right - your pursuer will always win in that sort of encounter, because their pressing X will always take precedent over your pressing X. If you see a pursuer get real close, you kind of either have to run, or do what I did and (I dunno if they have these in 3) throw a smoke bomb when he gets close and then stun him.
