39% of positive steam reviews and 6000 steam reviews today.

That poor percentage means a big amount of people who are not going to adquire the game in the near future.

Yeah, and 39% is the magic threshold to drop from "Mixed" to "Mostly Negative":

Now, I don't own the game, so I don't have an opinion about the game itself. But what astounds me is what I see scrolling down the Steam page a bit:

I think this would be a good time for all the major game journalism sites to take a good hard look in the mirror, and try to discover why they are so out of touch with the consumers they purport to inform.

I usually read RockPaperShotgun and they don't give "Bestest Bests" recommendation easily, but with Imperator they did it :shock:

I miss the days of game demos, some companies still do it, but most instead of offering a taste upfront want your money up front, and companies like paradox shouldn't really need the funding from the player base to complete a project.
