Backhanded Box Quotes: BFG Is A POS

Welcome back to “Backhanded Box Quotes”, a collection of measured, thoughtful criticism from the user reviews of Metacritic and elsewhere.

Doom? James Bond? Dragon Ball Z? Big names, big deal. With critic scores inflated like your typical Ivy League comparative lit final, we’ve got to go to the vox populi to get the real word on the abject crappiness of the latest re-releases and never-shoulda-been-releases.

Dragonball Z for Kinect

Released: Oct. 9

Critic: therealgiblet (Metacritic)
“I bought a Kinect for this as my son is an avid Dragon Ball Z fan. We’re not actaully going to be able to eat now for a week — but hell it’s worth it. If this isn’t the future then I’m a hungry disillusioned idiot.”
Score: 0.

That’s the most heartbreaking user review I’ve ever read.
