Yes, very true, the first five star review on Amazon actually used a real name that could be traced back easily to an domain site, not just clumsy or amateurish, it was downright stupid.

Cannot disagree with this, kids stuff, it really is, to have the same reviewer giving five star reviews to the same game on three different formats was more than transparent.

Which is why I don't read them, if there is a new game I like the look of, I play a demo to get some idea of how it plays, then rely on word of mouth, or rent a game I am not sure of, the Game Gadget reviews caught my eye as it was amazingly obvious there was an online war of reviews between the company and their own customers.
