A user metacritic score of 3.8 isn't anything to be proud about and the disparity between 'professional' reviewers (score 88) and users (score 3.8) makes the 'professionals' look a bit dubious.

My take on why the game sold 'well' is because a lot of knuckleheads (like me, for example) ran out and bought the game based on the brand name alone only to be rudely surprised at how bad it was. I played the game a few hours and it has sat on the shelf ever since.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
