    RR Worst Review Of 2004: OutRun 2 By Daniel Emery In The Times


    A dedicated group of people have banded together and demanded that we acknowledge the worst review of 2004. So, according to the voting, here it is:

    OutRun 2

    The only nomination received in this specially-added category was for Daniel Emery’s review of OutRun 2 which was printed in The Times (or “The London Times” if you’re American) last year. Claiming the game was “simple”, “dumbed-down” and “shallow” instead of congratulating the outstanding arcade handling missed the point by several leagues. It’s not a five-star game, but giving OutRun 2 one star out of five on the same page that the tedious The Sims 2 and the awful Silent Hill 4: The Room scored three stars each doesn’t look great.

    We would have suggested the OXM “review” of HeadHunter Redemption, but these are your awards, even if there were outside influences.

    2. Ramraider, please take your phrasiology which suggests that anything you don't like is a given statement of fact to the devil, and tell him that I sent you. We have enough of this rubbish to put up with at UK:R without people doing it with a straight face.

    3. Dear Mr. Devil,

      Here is my phrasiology which suggests that anything I don't like is a given statement of fact. I was sent by the unfunny one from UK:R, who submitted the comment six times.

      With love,

      RR.

      The unfunny one from UKR complains about phrasiology but can't write grammatically correct English. As a journalist, you deserve to see your opinions written properly. Ready...

      Do you see? And yes, I love being a wanker.

      You're not a wanker, you're a cunt.
      A cunt whose 'correction' was written just as poorly as the original.
      Cunt.

      Oh, and this...

      ...was quite obviously written by 'The Ram Raider' who also happens to be a cunt.
