But maybe they've made a mistake, (which they sometimes do), and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. will be as good as Far Cry. I hope so.

[edit] here's another one. Notice the gushy description. Notice how any defects are considered "minor" and overuled by all the good points. This is a good review.
Notice the "Editors Choice" on both these reviews. This is what I was hoping for in S.T.A.L.K.E.R., otherwise its just another game. Dont forget how long this game has been in development and all the hype!

But as I said, I dont mean to give the impression they didnt say some favourable things about the game.
I'm not understanding your point...sounds like you want S.T.A.L.K.E.R or any other new "highly hyped" game to be perfect in every way...a game does not have to beat its predecessor to be considedered a great game in my eyes...if S.T.A.L.K.E.R is worse then Far Cry so be it as long as the game as a whole is enjoyable and unique in some way...and the review from GameSpot gave it an 85, meaning they are taking the flaws into consideration...their reviews are pretty accurate in my opinion most of the time...and those 2 links of reviews for Riddick and Far Cry seem very fair to me....they gave the game pretty accurate scores

I hope ST.A.L.K.E.R is half way as good as that review made it seem, if so I know I'm going to enjoy it a lot
