Actually if you pay attention He makes a jab at Killzone 2 in this one that implies that it is bad and some other things about the game which aren't true and is obvious if you actually play the game. Which I have. It was great. So was Eat Lead and a few others I have played recently. But point blank if there are untrue comments made in that nature (I bashed G4 comments on EatLead on a different forum) then it will be bashed. The comment was uneducated and crap. Yahtzee can do better and shouldn't sink to things like that. I love when He jokes about games when I like them and when I don't. But comments like that just ... ah no, unacceptable.

And yes I have it in the right thread.

wow! what a great review. you must review sonic and the black knight. lets just say it has everything you hate about a game...

Captnhaggis:
You know, I come on this site to get a few laughs every wednesday, and yahtzee always delivers. And for a long time I took his advice on games very seriously, and avoided the titles he didn't like. But recently I've been playing some of the games he disliked (fable 2 and fear 2, notably) and I've realized that he's wrong very, very often. He blasts games for being basically all the same, but many of the titles he dislikes actually have a lot of fresh, new content to offer. I find that by listening to him, I miss some of the best games out there.

It seems my mistake was taking his advice seriously. I'm a little embarrassed that it took me this long to realize this, but these segments are not a serious review. Yahtzee is funny, but he's not really a reviewer. A reviewer has to come from an objective angle as much as possible, and yahtzee can't do that because he is obligated to be funny. And as he's mentioned, it's not funny to like a game. And his reviews ARE funny, but that's mainly because he spends the whole time picking the game in question apart. Thus all objectivity goes out the window, making these segments more akin to parody than review.

Reviews are never objective - I believe Yahtzee made that point himself in the mailbag video.

And although I have enjoyed games that Yahtzee has ragged on (I personally liked The World Ends With You quite a bit even though I'm not a typical JRPG fan) I've also found that virtually all his points are valid.

The best approach to using his reviews 'seriously' is, instead of noting how badly he's ragging on the game, note how much what he's ragging on pisses you off. If you liked Fable 1, then you'll probably like Fable 2 - like he says, it's more of an upgrade than a sequel.

In case you haven't noticed, there's very few reviews he's ended on a clearly positive note. Do you really think he hates 99% of the games released?

yes. lets face it though, he just hates games he has to master.

Loved the subliminal messages.

Not that they know anything about work, the lazy nig- [music]

Haha wasn't really expecting it, but thought it might happen. Nice ending.

What does that mean?

The last bit of this latest ZP video crossed the line, IMHO. It was just something you shouldn't really joke about.

Yeah, definitely. There is no way in hell someone who is not a black person, should even be allowed to allude to the word nigger. Black people however, are not barred what so ever and are not looked down upon using the word.

Ah, a good old fashion fakey uproar-ignitor. Classic.

When is M.C. Hammer going to release HammerTime: Survival in the 'Burb?

Well if you think THAT'S the case then you should definately never watch Blazing Saddles then.

i loved the ending to it. was priceless

Great review as always, especially the end where Yahtzee delivers some real truth. Hint: It's not racist if it's true(sorry if that pisses off the PC police). Too bad we couldn't have more people like Yahtzee in the States, then maybe we would've gotten McCain instead of that lazy ni-

brilliant! again! =)
not racist - complete with racism spectrum lol

"Not that they now anything about work, the lazy nig..." LMAO!!! good old Yahtzee :D

The first time I watched blazing saddles was with a black friend (I had no idea what to expect). Only about 15 at the time, was wondering if it was such a good idea after the first 5 or so 'n***ers', especially with the old man and the town bell.
Haven't spoken to him for a few years now, never asked if he found it offensive...

Loved the review though, but fucking hell, it's the Internet guys. If you're that easily offended get the fuck off of it and go back to your padded cell and pre-school books.
By being obviously offended and displaying your displeasure at such a heinous act you merely encourage people to do it more often.

Loved it, and like everyone else i enjoyed the ending haha
I Still cant get used to the intro/outro music.

Love it!

South Park did this first to any ZP fanboys worshipping his clever ploy...but it was a good review

ROFL Lara/Laura Croft found a new husband up until the last word was cut off I thought he meant to say "nitwit."

Great ZP, really funny as usual. Wondering if Yahtzee is gonna get in trouble for that last bit... It really bothers me that people post on these forums ranting about how Yahtzee's opinion is apparently so wrong. For a start, it's his opinion, so leave him be! If he doesn't like a game then fine for him, doesn't stop you liking it. If you have a problem with him, let HIM know. Also I'm sure there are people out there who watch his videos for a laugh and not to find out whether or not they should play a game or not. And even if you heartily disagree with every line he says, you have to admit he's seriously good at making people laugh.

Hey hey hey!!! He said "Nincompoop", dudes. "Nincompoop" Besides, I got the impression that Yahtzee wasn't looking at this game, particularly the story content, as being more than a tongue-in-cheek game that takes itself too seriously for the sake of 50 Cents rep. There have been only two games based on musicians that have been any good at all, and they are Wu-Tang Shaolin Style and Moonwalker. 50 Cent making a game that just shows him running amuck as a free-to-be thug is beyond imbecilic, and is capitalizing on a social existence that is criminal, parasitic, and completely devoid of any social value whatsoever.

There is no reason why anyone should take this game seriously. Keeping that in mind, Yahtzee toed the line, but stayed on this side of appropriate.

It was rather unfortunate for my monitor that I had a half chewed bite of ham sandwich in my mouth when I got to the end of this episode.

THANKS YAHTZEE!

No really, thanks. That was hilarious.

I've ALWAYS hated rappers, and let me tell you Yahtzee actually described pretty much the exact reason I hate them and even how it isn't really a good life in the long run. What Yahtzee said is pretty much every reason I hate rappers and he said it better than I ever could.

I haven't laughed this much since orange box

Def Jam Vendetta and Fight For New York say hi.

OMG. I didn't see that coming at all. My god, that was too hilarious.

I'm black ... and i laughed until i cried at the end. Lolz best ending ever, especially with all of the "I'm not racist" build up throughout the video. Nice one Yahtzee.

The best part is that he didn't actually say the word at the end. It was cut out on purpose. That's better than anyone else who says the word multiple times without any censorship, unless they're being forced to.

i like how the imp is writing a song while sitting on a lady imp

Epic ending.

I've never played the game, and I certainly will not because its most likely just like all those good for nothing games of new Disney movies. I completely agree on how Hip Hop isn't exacly a black thing (I still think it is the music genre of failures and I hate it) and I agree with your last statement, the one you didn't finish.

i found the subliminle message of him with a black guy and a arow saying not racest

I loved the NOT RACIST subliminal messages.

You cant show this video to a politically correct democrat, they'd sue you even though it's freedom of speech.

Great, great great and funny review, yahtzee.
