I found the review fair, lets be honest, eve isn't the game to pick up if you hate playing games with other people (as any of his multiplayer game reviews shows he is). Besides, he pretty much pans every game he reviews, so its not a surprise he did this one too.

From memory, I think he also slags EvE off in his Mass Effect 2 review (something about being bored rigid with the planet surveying feature, and saying if he wanted to be a space quantity surveyor he would play EvE).

He does however hit the nail on the head with some of his critiques, like the whole "Press X to not die" crap in console cutscenes.


He seems to hit the nail on the head while simultaneously missing the point entirely.


What's the point of them, then? Some kind of dead mans switch for console gamers?

Nah, he burned GTA IV down later when he was brown nosing Saints Row 2, I picked that one up because he was so remarkably positive but I didn't like it at all (all kinds of issues with the pc version at least).

Just Cause 2 is one of my favorite games. Sand<3Box. Was a huge fan of the first one when I got it on the original OxBox.

Back when it was first posted, I found it to be surprisingly accurate and funny - especially for someone who didn't want to play with others.

Ed: He's also been positive about Thief, Portal, Batman, Silent Hill, and a couple other games.

The odd thing is, I find Yahtzee's reviews to be really very helpful in assessing games - it's a matter of looking at *what* he criticised. Including bearing in mind that he's really, truly not very good at gaming.

Dude wimped out of Demon's Souls without evening finishing 1-2. I'm a girl, and don't really think of myself as being exceptionally good at gaming, and I've finished Demon's Souls through to NG++++ with all weapons, spells, and trophies collected...

But he *is* funny.


Yeah, Demon's Souls isn't all that hard per se, just very unforgiving of mistakes and carelessness.

This is why most companies don't have public internats forums. They got smart and cut all the ******s off at the elbows.

all this poor chap proves is that he doesnt quite have the head for the awesomeness that is EVE online.


I saw this a long time ago in someone's bio, I think it was the CEO of the first corp I joined a week after I started playing EVE.

I like his reviews, they're comedy gold. I watch them mainly for comedic effect though, very rarely have I actually wanted an opinion.

His review of Eve is pretty accurate but it's obvious he didn't look into it more than the 14-day free trial's length. Eve is an enormously complex game that 14 days is barely going to scratch the top-most layer of finish off the top-most layer of paint.

But ignorant of what else Eve does have to offer, he pretty accurately described every player's first two weeks.

Yahtzee's own words "Consider me a praiser by exception, and anything I don't mention is fine".

It's his job to nit-pick and rip games apart in the most comedic way possible. Even games he professes to enjoy (Batman: Arkham Asylum and Psyconaughts immediatly come to mind) he tears apart. Just the way the Aussie is. And I wouldn't have him any other way.

I hope he rips apart APB soon.

He's not Australian. He's English.

He just lives in Queensland.
