  • Gamereactor re-posts Alone in the Dark review - with the same score

    Gamereactor’s put its Alone in the Dark review back up, and it’s still got a 3/10 on it. The site removed its piece after posting it yesterday. It later transpired that code had only been sent through the day earlier. A “3″ isn’t going to do that average much good, is it?
