Haha, he's got some good points, but the thing I mainly agree on is that if you like RPGs you'll like Mass Effect, but if you don't like RPGs you probably won't.

One of his worst reviews IMO (N)

Still funny, but one of my least liked.

This one was pretty good, not having played the game, but understanding his cynical tirades, I beleive this is one of his best.

Saw this on Kotaku and laughed. Going with Giga on this one; if you don't like RPG's and are looking at this as purely a shooter, return the game right away. :p

I thought he was right in a few areas but mostly the rest was way off.

I am going to have to agree with Audio as his worse ever.

Lighten the **** up! Christ if it's xbox exclusive you won't have a bad word against it. :rolleyes:

Certainly one of better written ones. You can't fault his vocabulary genius. :)

Wow because i disagree with this review of his, it gives you the right to tell me to lighten the **** up? Are you sure you should be the one that should lighten up because it sounds by your tune that you have something against me. :(

I think he has done good reviews in the past on games such as Bioshock and Assassins Creed but not this one.

Something against you? I don't know you! :/

It's not a review it's one mans over the top ranting. It's a joke, christ take it for what it is.

His review itself is not a joke. He intends to be funny when he talks about it, and he is, but his points about the games are not jokes and we have every right to disagree with him. He had some good points but I mostly disagree with him about the game. PiracyX did nothing to warrant a, "Lighten the **** up!" response from you. He simply disagreed with the review.

THAR INTERARWEB IS A SERIOUS BIZNESS. Again. Lighten up it's christmas! :laugh:

I don't think you're watching these vids how I see them. He gets paid to demolish games in an entertaining way. Just like Charlie Brooker on screenwipe picks on TVs awful points and slates the programme. A review is a list of pros and cons from a neutral PoV.

Would he still be fun to watch if he spoke fast and complemented every good point of the game? Far from it.

Sorry, but, "Lighten the **** up!" is out of line if you ask me. I don't care if you think it's funny or joking, you don't just say that in a playful way. Maybe if you had left the curse word out it might have seemed a little more lighthearted, but you just had to add it in there and I think pretty much anybody (except you apparently) would take it as harsh and rude. So please, learn some manners.

But he's not the first. I had to have a look to see if he is any relation or went to school with Charlie Brooker but couldn't find anything. I think he must be either influenced or pure luck! :p

(Incase you don't know him Brooker:

& Being 'THE TALENT')
