    What the f*** are you sniffing?

    PC Zone UK & PC Gamer UK are more like each other than either admits - Both have their fanboi reviews and have been known to give ratings more favourably than not (how many games have got less than half marks in either magazine compared to more than?)

    The most critical magazine in the UK is Edge - I'd love to see their score for it Having said that, this and a 96% from PCG UK must mean something - Either they're both full of HL2 fanboys , Valve paid both of them off or HL2 really is something after all

    All computer magazines are "pants". They don't dare give bad reviews to the big releases for fear of losing advertising money. So unless a game really sucks (or blows) then it'll get a decent review or more likely a rave review.

    It just makes sense for them to hype a game for months (or even years) as it sells magazines. How many "Exclusive screenshots/previews/reviews/demos of Game X" covers have you seen?

    Well that's my experience of them anyhow. The media lies, you're better off getting your game reviews from me. Mind, I hate all games....
