    - Joystiq put up a review of Conduit 2 that was extremely negative
    - High Voltage catches wind of the review
    - After digging, High Voltage learns that the Joystiq reviewer is actually an author as well, and has written a book
    - That book is called The Dragon Ruby.
    - An email (image) is sent around High Voltage suggesting that perhaps some employees should 'repay the favor' of the negative Conduit 2 review by adding negative reviews to the Amazon listing
    - Book listing on Amazon is bombarded with bad reviews[/p]

    This is rather childish of High Voltage.

    The first Conduit was great in my opinion, couldn't get the second one, saving up, but now I'm sort of glad I didn't.

    This guy is nuts. Conduit 2 is arguably the best shooter for Wii. His review is bullshit.

    Sounds like Sony! [​IMG]

    LOL... just kidding

    Anyway, High Voltage, instead of "returning em' the favor", i suggest you work on your next conduit game and have it as little mistakes as possible so that you can get a more favorable review. [​IMG]

    Maybe the reviewer is also a Sony fanboy and only says killzone is da bomb? Who knows? [​IMG]

    I don't care. I'm still waiting for my conduit 3DS.

    Apparently, I can immediately tell that this guy hasn't played with this game before.

    The most horrible game I have EVER played is Pac Man World 3 for DS, and it still got 37/100 (2.5 stars).

    The "have fun" line at the end of the e-mail does a lot to set the tone, though.

    Yes, thats right. Perfect Dark on N64 has better graphics than Conduit 2, *insert facepalm here*

    It doesn't matter if he said people should read the book. That's just to cover his ass. Did he honestly expect anybody to?

    See the quotation marks? And the way I typed it out. It's meant to represent what probably happened in a sarcastic matter.

    *looks at your username*

    Okay nevermind, not even going to bother.

    Seriously, have you (the reviewer) even played conduit 2?

    He has spoiled the end of the game in his"review", so apparently, he played it.

    Meh I hate shooters, so I really don't care if it got a 1 out of 5. But it is childish to rate down a book because your game got a bad review.

    It may be childish but it's a lot more childish to deliberately review a game so bad like this person did. Have a look at his review and judge for yourself.

    The review is harsh for sure, but it sounds like it was something the reviewer genuinely did not enjoy.

    In my opinion, High Voltage deserves this score now for being childish bastards. Go market the game to the five year old's that you act like.
