A technique seems to have evolved for appraising these game reviews. If the review is written with poor spelling, bad grammar and ridiculous punctuation then I would say it's a fair bet you can dismiss it almost immediately and don't waste your time reading it. Also the ones with the four and five stars can be equally dismissed simply because they're usually the gushing ones and don't really offer much of an insight into the true workings of the game.
So it is with much regret that I didn't take the reviews that are worth reading with the lower star ratings more seriously. It is also with deep regret that I allowed myself to be suckered by the hype once again into buying this game at the top of the market and once again paying top dollar for an inadequate title, rather than patiently waiting until the price comes down to a more reasonable level.
GTA on horseback seems to be an appropriate description. Not only that, it is also boring and repetitive with a healthy dollop of anger and frustration thrown in. But there again you can read as many of the reviews as you like, although you'll never truly know what you're letting yourself in for until you try it for yourself.
