All this means to me is that a lot of people certainly seem to like it. That doesn't make me like it any more. Plus the critical consensus matters very little to me when it comes to games, since most "professional" video game reviewers are terrible and don't take their jobs seriously at all.

Does every big tentpole movie that comes out receive a round of butt kissing from film critics? No, because they have standards. In the world of video game criticism, a big budget means almost guaranteed rave reviews. Of course not entirely, but there are very few video game critics whose opinion carries any weight to me at all. They might as well be a herd of chimps.
