PC Gamer's review of Spiral Knights had about as many howling factual errors as it had paragraphs, in spite of being relatively light on factual claims. It also made it pretty obvious that the reviewer had jumped into the game without knowing what to expect, played for about an hour, not understood what was going on, and then stopped to write the review. So no, one shouldn't expect quality reviews from them.
It's one thing to disagree with a game's score. It's quite another for a review to be wildly wrong on factual matters. A review of WoW that calls it a sandbox game that mostly revolves around raiding in parties of seven players and has a level cap of 75 is not a quality review, no matter what score the review gives the game.
I haven't bought a gaming magazine in years now.
I always end up reading two or three interesting articles and then the magazine winds up gathering dust before finally vanishing into the garbage.
Not really worth it when I can cherrypick the games I want to read about on the internet.
My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)
Are you talking site or the magazine?
Cause the mag is awesome and they actually break news with in-depth articles you don't find elsewhere. This is also known as journalism.

So you are taking issue with a scripted run through review by PC Gamer, I belive the game was still under NDA when they posted the article. Also the game is still in beta.
Why would anyone check barrels and shelves when in previous Elder Scrolls game all that was ever in them was junk?
Finally if the reviewer doesn't like the game are they supposed to lie to you and tell you how great it is against thier own feelings?
I see your point, the idiot that reviewed this was negative from the start.

I really wish you had given us choices other than agreeing with you. PC Gamer may not be exactly what I want in a magazine about games, but at least they are still being published and I find most of their reviews well thought out (even if I disagree with them). I have no clue what they did to piss you off, but I really think you need to get over it.
