Fanboy is a term used to describe an individual (usually male, though the feminine version fangirl may be used for females) who is utterly devoted to a single fannish subject, or to a single point of view within that subject, often to the point where it is considered an obsession.
Fanboys remain loyal to their particular obsession, disregarding any factors that differ from their point of view. Fanboys are also typically aggressive and hateful towards the opposing brand or competition of their obsession regardless of its merits or achievements.
Yup, that sounds just about right for the guy that wrote this review. 🙂
The good: According to this highly thought out, well written, unbiased review 😉 Bioshock only has good graphics, a so-so story-line and some pretty water effects.
The bad: Apparently Bioshock’s animation seems “stiff” and the graphics could’ve been better…oh wait, didn’t he just say it had good graphics? 🙂 Also, the reviewer seems to think that the 360’s power is a limiting factor and also lays some blame on the smaller DVD format for the “bad” graphics.
The ugly: Again, the reviewer feels sorry for developers that had a “limited” amount of system power in the 360 to work with 😉 and duely consoles (no pun intended) the masses that the PS3 version (LOL!) will not disappoint.
Final score: 5/10
PS. This review in all likelihood was written by a 12 year old who practices extreme PS3 fanboism. It should not be taken seriously. May he soon accept the glory that is Bioshock. 🙂
