Oke before we start, i dont want any Eidos bashing or CD bashing, i just read this and i think its pretty sad that this is being done... Deffinantly when compaired AOD came out and they didn't give a crapper about it...
It reminds me kinda of what Atari did with Alone in the Dark

Official reaction from Barrington Harvey, PR manager at Eidos UK:
[quote]“That’s right. We’re trying to manage the review scores at the request of Eidos. Just that we’re trying to get the Metacritic rating to be high, and the brand manager in the US that’s handling all of Tomb Raider has asked that we just manage the scores before the game is out, really, just to ensure that we don’t put people off buying the game, basically.”

Deeeeeeesperate. ;)

Seriously, by doing this they ENSURED more people won't buy it.

Casual gamer: Wow. Idios forces reviewers to recall low scores? The game must be a total mess. That's one game I won't be buying! :D Oh, yes, now for my copy of Generic FPS X: The Sequel.
