Batman reviews swing in, EG goes with 9

This is looking pretty much unanimous. Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum’s sitting pretty with a 92 percent MC average, with even the “tougher” pubs coming out with glowing praise.

It’s out this Friday. We’re sending you subliminal messages to buy it by having our website covered in Batman ads. Actually, fuck it: just buy it.

    So why did they hold back on it? If they were going to give it a 9 they should have published early.

    “So why did they hold back on it? If they were going to give it a 9 they should have published early.”

    It’s fairly obvious that the early reviews were just exclusives rather than shenanigans now…

    To avoid the appearance of corruption, or maybe the embargo wasn’t based on the score at all.

    “To avoid the appearance of corruption, or maybe the embargo wasn’t based on the score at all.”

    That’s not corruption, that’s just run of the mill business, giving exclusives to certain magazines in exchange for advertising etc.

    So when did the review embargo end?

    Today.

    And it was magazines who could publish their reviews early if their scores were 9/10 or above, not websites. I think.

    That’s assuming all that stuff was genuine in the first place, of course.
