Jeff Gerstman fired from Gamespot
      #13177858 - 11/29/07 09:00 PM

http://kotaku.com/gaming/rumor/gamespot-editor-fired-over-kane--lynch-review-328244.php



Rumor is he has been fired because Eidos who bought a ton of ads on the gamespot frontpage weren't too pleased with his review of the game.
If you've ever been at gamespot.com you'll probably know him since he has been a reviewer there for 10 years iirc.

If it's true it certainly destroys any cred gamespot had left.

I never really liked this guy's reviews to be honest, but if that's true... wow, that sucks.

At first I was like "that sucks" then I saw his 8.8 rating for Twilight Princess.

i didn't play TP, but i was in the room while my gf was going through it. the wolf sections looked lame, there was a fairy audibly sighing every five seconds, the wagon on fire section looked very annoying, the androgynous huge-eyed cutscene graphics were disturbing, etc. i'm sure the game is good overall, but using ocarina as a baseline of 10 it's hard for me to imagine TP breaking 9 in my book if i actually played it.

I'm not sure I could really be precise enough for a 100 point scale but 9 sounds right for Twilight Princess.

Off the original topic: I'm a huge Nintendo and Zelda fan, but I think 8.8 is too high for TP. Everything outside of the dungeons was not good at all, and was a huge step back from MM and WW. Also, the Palace of Twilight and Hyrule Castle were not up to Zelda standards.

On the original topic: Yeah, that sounds pretty suspicious.
