A brief note (GameSpy inflates rating)

operation: drumbeat (blargticle)

"I’ve never done this before, and I probably shouldn’t be doing it now, but I want to take the opportunity to completely disown the GameSpy Donkey Konga 2 review in its published form. It grew an extra star and a half (or another 30% on the gamerankings scale) from its submitted version, along with several laudatory phrases that I didn’t write and certainly don’t mean. I hated the game. It’s not a 3/5.

Wow, that is pretty major news. GameSpy inflated a rating, which really discredits the site as a place to go to get useful game reviews. Because there is no way to know if the review is the actual review or not. Hopefully someone will have a follow-up for this.
