    Ooh bribery, maybe not quite as blatant but simiilar (normally ad based) things have happened in the past.

    But for those oft useless averaging sites to pull the reviews it must be something special.

    SC runs fine on my PC and it's an absolute blast to play.

    What kind of PC do you have? I heard SC even gives high-end PCs a run for its money. I have a 3.4Ghz P4, 1GB Memory, Mobility Radeon X600 and I know I can't run SC because running CoH will cause my notebook PC to overheat and shut down.

    I have a nVidia GeForce 6600 as my video card. I'm not sure what everything else is because my dad takes care of all that stuff, I just update the video card.

    Sure I can't run the game on super full graphics, but knocking the stuff down to about 40% graphic capabilities seems to run fine.

    This reminds me of the GamePro preview/review of the old Sega 32X game Metal Head.

    In the previews, they said it NEVER gets repetitive or boring. Then, when the review came out they said it is very repetitive and boring. After that I never trusted GamePro again.

    That was how many years ago now?

    Apparently they are still pulling that crap.

    I want to know is if EA's pulled this shit before, and of all the people, why the Australian division? Less chance of getting noticed?
