I would argue that the game scores maybe should be lower if the game's single player is really that bad.
You just got 2 presents, two different boxes, bought seperately, and having nothing to do with each other. If someone gives you a box of chocolates that has both SHIT and delicious chocoliate in it guess what...that box still has shit in it. Was it seperate from the chocolate, sure...can you throw it out without having the shit effect your chocolate...sure, but the box and commercials still advertise that box of chocolate as having AWESOME CHOCOLATE AND NOT SHIT...and guess what you got: awesome chocolate and shit.
You need to learn how to compare and contrast better. I learned that in grade school.
I am going to request to have this thread locked; either he is trolling (poorly) or it's meant to be some sort of flame bait.
1. You are possibly trolling and making a poor attempt
2. You can't understand the basics of video game reviewing, even when a review posts complete, concise, and clear thoughts on the game they are reviewing
3. You are upset that a game you love, or want to love, has any sort of negative thing associated with it all no matter how illogical your arguments become
4. You can't clearly, or logically, make an argument about your feelings as it becomes clear that your argument devolves into nonsense. An example being something you said a few posts ago.
- Your (illogical) Question: " Again, should Assassin's Creed II be considered a bad game because it has NO multi player ?"
- My (logical) and truthful answer: No, and it never was considered in a review. I'll explain further:
Assassin's Creed 2 was reviewed positively across the board. The game was single player only and no reviews have mentioned multiplayer. When Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was released it contained a single player game and a multiplayer game. Both modes were reviewed positively and that factors into the score. A+B=C, basically.
Now, had you made an argument or complete thought that was something along the lines of "I wish game reviewers were more consistent when reviewing games that have single and multiplayer modes that are drastically different in quality to each other. An example? Metal Gear Solid 4 (as someone mentioned earlier) has both a single and multiplayer component, but I can't honestly see a score being effected negatively because of a decent multiplayer (even though the hoops to get to the multiplayer were incredibly dumb and frustrating). Your argument is also made illogical and invalid AGAIN because all review scores of the game Battlefield 3 have been largely positive and seemingly do not take the single player game into account too much. Also the single player campaign was shown before any multiplayer, the single player campaign has been marketed more heavily than the single player, and if I am not mistaken the single player has been demoed to those in the enthusiast press more than the multiplayer.
Again, you come off as completely illogical and whiny. If you can't understand why then I think you have bigger problems than not being able to process review scores.
@Mageman: A flaw in the system? Who cares if DICE didn't want to make it (I haven't read any interviews saying they DIDNT want to make it...as I said the last 2 games with BATTLEFIELD in the title have had a single player campaign as did Mirror's Edge...a DICE game), the single player is part of the game and game reviewers review what? The game...again, your choice of words and tone indicate you are just pissed the game isn't getting a specific score for the hell of it. If a car manufacturer makes a decent car but the automatic seats are fucked, don't move properly, and are uncomfortable why would that not factor into a final review of the car? You bring it on yourself. "Anti-fanboys" aren't "anti-fanboys", we are just gamers who don't understand irrational "logic" and the defense force mentality.
I haven't seen a reviewer yet "bash" the single player, but critique and say "the single player is a poor experience but the multiplayer is awesome". If that ruffles your feathers then you have more than just a problem with Battlefield 3 reviews to work on. A game reviewer reviewing a game isn't bashing. Show proof, quotable proof, of a reviewer "bashing" the single player and we'll talk.

▪ He is accused of raping the girl. ▪ She was raped by a fellow student.
If anyone here actually has raped you I would suggest contacting your local authorities...or just choose better words to emphasize your feelings.
