Mass Effect got some decently balanced reviews (Gamespot gave it a very good one), but it also got some ridiculously over-the-top bought-and-paid-for "This game is perfect" A++ 5/5 10/10 reviews that completely ignored the game's numerous flaws. My trust in the gaming media gets smaller every year. I used to trust X-Play, but last year they started doing more and more of these half hour infomercials for games like Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty 4, and Mass Effect where there is a 5/5 score at the end which is basically a formality.

Gamespot took a lot of heat over the Kane and Lynch scandal, but in my opinion, Microsoft directly bribing reviews with $800 bags of goodies is more egregious.
