Ob­jec­tive Games Re­views may be an ex­tended prank, its mis­sion to ex­tract ev­ery last morsel of cri­tique from game re­views in favour of a fac­tu­ally in­dis­putable break­down of a game’s me­chan­ics, key fea­tures and plot. “Booker must fight his way through po­lice of­fi­cers and oth­ers, like people who can turn into crows and back into people in­def­i­nitely un­til Booker kills them,” is an ab­surd sen­tence, af­ter all. But given the thor­ough­ness of the joke, and the com­pre­hen­sive­ness of the site’s man­i­festo, there ex­ists the pos­si­bil­ity that Ob­jec­tive Games Re­views is not whimsy, but a very real re­sponse to some play­ers’ de­mands for stupid things like opin­ions to stop cloud­ing crit­ics’ opin­ions about games. Ei­ther way, it’s the place to go if you need a game de­scribed in painstak­ing de­tail.
