I like how the author assumes that because he doesn't like puzzles, no one does. Maybe he should play something other than an action/adventure game?

It might not be a glowing review, but it stills seems to come off as more objective than Gamespot's.

I don't like reviews where the reviewer is negative because it's not the kind of game they like.

The Gamespy reviewer's point is basically "I don't like puzzles! I don't like exploration!"

So why is he playing an adventure game? I don't like sports, so if I were to review a football game or whatever I'd write something like "this sucks, I hate having a bunch of people throw a ball around and tackle each other," which wouldn't be fair to people who do like sports games.

If he is looking for all action, he should play an all-action game, not write a poor review of Defiance.

You have a good point there, blinc. When reading the review, it somehow felt like the reviewer really wasn't into this genre.

I haven't had the pleasure of playing Defiance myself yet, so I have no idea about how it is. But it is still my most anticipated game since SR2! :D
