Stories about this game (and EA in general) just seem to be getting more and more ridiculous...

It's really annoying. They need to learn to listen to their customers instead of continually publishing shite they don't want over and over again. Well, that and ruining games by making them always online and so on. It pisses me off I can't play with my Simpsons when I don't have a connection.

It still makes money, and that's the only way how EA rate success. I'm pretty sure the last few quarters they made better than expected profits.

People need to stop blindly pre-ordering games, and buying the extras and crap that you *shouldn't* have to pay for. Then maybe EA will listen.

I truly wish there was some sort of quality control board for all games companies, so companies like EA could get slammed for pulling crap like this!

I mean I get that the game is crap, but don't pull rating manipulation stunts like that, just to get more suckers to buy the game.

Whilst it is true that users can leave whatever rating they want on the Google Play store, it does mean they have to say that they will leave a 5 star rating first and then change their mind when they get there."

Or they could just rate the game from the store like any other app on.

I can't believe how much this story has been picked up over the media. I'd rather tell a developer why I don't like their game/app than leave a 1 star "itz shits" review like so many do.

I have zero intention playing the game as I find the current free to play model with time accelerating microtranstactions to be a total joke. Then again its not meant for me is it? Its meant for those that find this a satisfying experience. While those people pay this is going to get even worse.

Well run, I would be suprised if this type of behaviour does not run against Googles Ts n Cs.

Cant agree more with the later part of your post though.

It is amazing what you can get away with with various reviews systems etc which why as a retail company choosing a review system is important as many allow the company being reviewed to edit and vet all the incoming reviews which defeats the point in my opinion.

I persuaded my boss to implement a review system on our ecommerce site which the reviews can only be edited by the review company if it breaches their t's and c's. Now as a decent retailer i am proud to show this off and would much rather have a 90-99% approval rating than a 100% beacuse that <9% validates that its real feedback.

Reviews serve 2 key purposes;
1) inform the customer whether item/service is of value boosting sales
2) inform the retailer etc what they are doing right or wrong.

EA I fear have focussed on 1) and not the other.

I vowed never to buy another EA game years ago, sadly not everyone can resist buying the latest COD or BF game, even when they probably know EA is going to treat them like a cash cow with things like DLC releases on day one.

EA has definitely made me stop pre-ordering. Never again. The last game I pre-ordered that met or beat my expectations was BF:BC2.
