Getting reviewed: Thank you sir, may I have another?

Now that Heroes 5 is out I'm starting to check the reviews for comments on the writing.  A really bad idea.  Now I know what it must be like to get a novel reviewed.  You send your child out into the world, and... half the people say it's stupid and walks funny; the other half find something nice to say.  It's a question of finding pleasure in the pain, I guess. Witness...

From Gamespy:
"The campaigns are fun, but their pacing is just dreadful, as are the cutscenes. Rarely do a game's cutscenes merit a note in a review but these are so bad and so B-movie corny that you almost expect the Beastmaster to appear on screen with Xena. It's painful to watch."

From Gamespot:
"The campaigns let you spend plenty of time focusing on each of the game's different factions, and they're sprinkled with decent 3D cutscenes that weave an engaging-enough story, which should help keep you going even when the missions get tough or start to drag on in spots."

From HookedGamers:
"While my initial impressions of the game were not that positive --the campaign started off very slowly and did not appeal to me at all-- once the plot twists started kicking in, I was sucked in completely and and before I knew it, The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion that I had been playing before I started Heroes of Might & Magic V had become nothing more than a distant memory."

Geez, is it always like this?  My first public exposure and I'm getting all schizophrenic.
