1up Pulls Neverwinter Nights 2 Review

Seems the overly negative review of Neverwinter Nights 2 over at 1up didn't sit to well with the members. But that begs the question, why pull a review because it was negative? 1up says it was because the review didn't live up to their "editorial standards" which can be taken many ways. Was it because everyone thought the review was way, way to negative? Or was it because 1up got hate mail due to the negative review? Who knows. All I know is that 1up actually pulled a review - which I don't think I've ever seen happen before with an online review from a major gaming site. The original review gave Neverwinter Nights 2 a 5/10 score, and it was pretty obvious the reviewer didn't care for the D&D rules or world. Plus, as has been said, it was poorly written. Or was it?

Did 1up do the right thing by pulling the review? Should the review have not been pulled? What does that say about a negative reaction to a review in general, if it is so negative it might get pulled by the company? What do you guys think?

You can read the original review here on the Bioware forums.
