That is the main reason I very rarely go buy/see something early. You can't trust critics, have to wait for a demo/pirate/ask friends/etc. I mean, one if the greatest games of all time, Darkfall, got a 2/10 score, while world of kidcraft gets 9/10? Some medicore bestsellers get 9/10 scores, while actually interesting books often get no more than 6/10? You could trust the inverse of critic scores, but, you never know if it is a good thing they didn't get paid to praise, or if it is an actually bad thing. Sort of sad, that their entire profession is moot and does not perform its function.
