“Frankly, the lawsuit alone is reason enough not to buy this game.” Perfectly valid opinion
“But it’s also a rather poor entry in the Star Control franchise” Perfectly valid opinion
"Avoid.” Perfectly valid recommendation.
Here is what you said 2 days ago:
“I think it might be worth mentioning to potential customers that the publisher is involved in an ongoing legal dispute with the original creators, and that money you give to Stardock will be used in part to pay their legal bills. I assume that’s relevant, even though I know a lot of people won’t care about it at all”
So you went and played the game for 1.4 hours and then stuck your dagger in. You act like you gave the game a fair shake but it just disappointed you. Maybe you did. It’s impossible to know. It’s clear though that you went into it with substantial bias. Maybe this belongs in the SC 2 Origins thread but I’d hate to pollute that thread with this and you posted your strongly felt opinions about the lawsuit here and talked about reviewing it here.
I think what you did was awful. I think it was a deliberate attempt to hurt stick it to stardock because you disagree with the actions they have taken vis a vis the legal dispute over SC. That’s just my opinion but yeah I think it was petty and it makes me angry.
