It's not unreasonable to expect people to research a game before buying, even if you do make good dollar. And as you get older, it's not so much about the $ as it is the time investment.
Personally the demo + reviews helped me decided not to get the game. a 7.5-8 can be overlooked based on personal bias, but several 4.5 - 6 scores is horrible for a triple AAA title.
I agree. I read the reviews and have seen the low scores accross the board, but instead of me completely dismissing it, I decided to try it out for myself and I am having a blast with it since. I was cautious, rented it, and made a smart choice in my opinion.
A close buddy of mine asked me last night if I bought it and if I did, why, and was quick to bash Capcom because of Gamespots review. That makes me wonder how many people on here bashing the game have even played the game?
