Don't you just hate that?
Now I have a quandary. I get access to reviewer copies of games (mostly in PDF) and for the most part, I only take reviewer copies of stuff I feel I'll actually enjoy. I've gotten pretty good at this. Once in a while I fail, and fail bad.
I failed bad the other night. Bad as in "What the Fuck did I Get?"
Not even bad as in funny bad. Not bad as in stupid bad. Bad as in the publisher is pretty clueless as to the minimum qualities expected from a game publisher of any sort of amateur status. Bad as in if I had downloaded this free, I'd still be upset with the quality. Bad as in "they have HOW MANY products to their credit and they still can't get it right?" bad. There might be something worthwhile behind the abysmal presentation, but I'm not wasting my time or patience to find it.
No, I won't mention the name of the product, or the publisher. The saying you can't judge a book by it's cover certainly applies here.
If you track me down via email, I may tell you if your guess is right.
