Let’s just take a moment to note that we’re talking about EA paying for good press and it’s obvious that this is not a question as to it actually being the case, but rather who they’re trying to pay off to praise their game. So far the game has not been received as well as expected by some, much to the dismay of the publisher. There’s a definite split whereby some gamers absolutely love everything about it, and others completely hate what’s on offer.
Head to Metacritic (at the time of writing) and it’s sitting on a 75% aggregate, which is not good, but also not terrible. Now Benjamin Burnley, from Breaking Benjamin, has posted the below image on Instagram along with this message:
[quote]They wanted to pay me to post that I like this piece of sh!t game .. They can shove it up their ass this game sucks I’d rather watch the god awful prequels then play this piece of sh!t one more second that’s for ruining Star Wars EA :)[/quote]
No, paying famous people to say good things about your game is actually nothing new. It’s just that in 2015 it’s still something that’s not appreciated by most and smells like cheap tactics.
