I usually like the content of AngryJoe reviews (I ignore his opinion, I just look at what's presented...his quick points usually give a good idea about a game), but this felt lazy. He kept on stating inaccurate information, such as statements which assume that Ascaron made Sacred 3, and that they were (maybe) a Polish company. He obviously didn't do any research (which he's usually pretty good about), and he had access to Google throughout the video.
He started off very entertained (due to novelty), but that wears off within the first hour (which isn't a good sign for the game).
Gogo: The South Park RPG review was the one which sticks out in my mind as one where he was relatively consistent, and he liked the game.
Generally though, his opinion seems to vary wildly (including within the same review) and he seems to get caught up on the little things. Sometimes I think he's just doing it to try to stay true to the "angry" part of his name, when it really isn't in his nature to be angry.
He seemed to be completely bi-polar about Sacred 2. Both in this video alone: Time 1 = It's an awful game, I hated it. Time 2 = It was a great game, I'm a fan of it. His Saints Row 3 and 4 reviews were completely bi-polar also (and he got hung up on tiny details, and completely missed the point of details in SR3, then caught onto them in SR4...which drastically changed his opinion of each game).
I'll be honest and respond that I wasn't very happy with his review at all. I've gotten some fun laughing at the way he talks and those eye goggle expressions he makes, but for a serious, relatively fair review of something I'd want to purchase, I wasn't able to find bearing on method of presentation. Mystix, you're dead on with with his lack of real reference that, I think, he owes us as fans.
Yes we're big Sacred series fans here, but that doesn't mean with go into any new interation of game with blinders on.
A balanced aproach would have garnered more of my respect for him, but I ultimately came away with the impression that he'd walked in with his gun loaded, with nothing to shoot but boring and meaningless blanks
two thumbs down for angry joe's handling of this review
maybe he needs to take a nap
