Video Review of SotS 2 - EoF by Gamestar

Post by Gambit » Mon Dec 24, 2012 12:09 am

There is a video review of SotS 2 - End of Flesh on Youtube by the German Magazine Gamestar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AqvRsGCh_U

The corresponding article can be found here: http://www.gamestar.de/spiele/sword-of- ... 07859.html

Both in German obviously.

Final Rating is 68.

PS: Google Translate version of article: http://translate.google.com/translate?s ... ml&act=url

Having read the german article and the english translation I must admit I am impressed by the quality of the machine translation. Flawed but much better than expected.

Even tho I had to use google translate to read, I gathered that the depth and subtleties of the game, outstripped the reviewers comprehension.
A very glib review. Then he finishes by misrepresenting the state of the game and Kerberos famed support for their product:
So again I'm waiting for a year to more patches until finally everything is perfect? I think not.

In a perfect world... :roll:

Lol don't take it hard marsh, prime inoculated us to this sort of thing. :P In the end its like newspapers...they went shallower and flashier and then blamed the Internet for their deaths. In this situation, if people like glib then this sort of reviewing will continue to do well, if people start turning away and just trusting themselves it will probably be blamed on "the death of pc games" or something like that.

None by major sites, as far as I am aware. Only one by a small site dedicated to strategy games.
