Steam reviews have hit a new low and I finally see just how damaging they are to a company like Stardock. This is the thread to point out supposedly sincere reviews that are hard to grasp (or have ulterior motives).
This review was written by “DaBlaarg” and is about the new MOO. Yes it’s listed on Moo’s front page of reviews and has 3 out of 3 “this was a helpful” votes (soon to be 3 out of 4).
“Cannot play this. I logged in probably 10K hours in MOO2…can’t play this…doesn’t matter what I do/build/etc cannot win. and this is on lowest difficulty. this game is broken. then I figured I’d mod it so I can at least get a few hours of play out of it and not be a complete waste of money. omg…the modding process is like getting a lava fingered prostate exam. I don’t think anyone could make it more of a pain in the ♥♥♥♥. 1/10 I had such high hopes for this game. completely dissapointed. I’ve never even bothered to write a review for anything online before.”
This guy supposedly played MOO2 for “10,000 hours” and can’t win on the lowest difficulty? You have to do a lot of meth or suffer a serious neurological brain disorder to lose that kind of brain mass. 10,000 hours = 1,250 workdays or 4.6 work years. Nearly enough time to work your way through graduate school and get a PhD on the subject.
