    The very first link has a typo – “watch ad ad” should be “watch an ad”

    “Fudzilla: Crysis 2 expected to score over 90% in reviews, says EA ”

    Lol! Speculation on the average review score for a future release. Now I’ve seen everything.

    I’m thinking 88.5%, not 90%. Lol!

      I must admit…I had a hearty laugh reading that one. 🙂

      Suddenly you’re against expectations too? Is there anything you genuinely don’t oppose? You’re like a more grating version of Krogoth.

        Why don’t you head over to the Atom article and look what I wrote about 667 MHz? Learn to read and stop picking fights.

      Yeah… The first Crysis was a nice game. By no means brilliant, but a nice game. Personally I enjoyed it. But I think they are a little bit too arrogant. First, when they didn’t meet their expected sales / profit margins on the first game, they whined up and down about piracy, even though the game sold pretty well. Now, they claim they expect reviews above 90% for the next release, and this:

      Crysis 2 is one big “meh” at this point. Graphics look worse than Crysis 1. Controls look worse. AI looks worse. Not seeing an upside yet.
