Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Uncharted 2 score controversy

Angry fans calling us names

Yesterday our Swedish sister site published their review of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and the final score that it was given (8/10) by Editor-in-chief Petter Hegevall caused quite a controversy among fans. Instead of taking it for what it is - the opinon of one reviewer - there's been quite a bit of name calling directed towards Gamereactor, with some commenters calling Petter Hegevall everything from a liar to a Xbox fanboy (completely missing that the same reviewer gave Killzone 2 the top score, 10/10, and that Gamereactor Sweden gave Halo 3: ODST the same score as they gave Uncharted 2).

Game reviewing is serious business, just like the rest of the Internet. We at Gamereactor International are saddened by how some people treat game journalists, which is hardly isolated to this particular case, and hope that at some point people will start to realise what a review is - the opinion of one person. Hopefully some commenters will also stop to pass judgement on reviews of games they haven't even played themselves.

A review of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, in English, will be published here on Gamereactor International next week. Until then, be excellent to each other.

Hugs, Nathan! 8/10 is still a great score!
