Atari gets a tongue-lashing

Worthplaying has posted an editorial that blasts Atari for some questionable business practices. Apparently, word has gotten out that DRIV3R is about as fun as a papercut; and Atari has been working overtime to keep the word on the street from reaching consumers' ears. The opinion piece claims that Atari has placed a review embargo on the game, hoping they can fool a few more people into buying their bug-ridden product. It seems to us that they could have done a better job gagging the press, since there's already been a flood of bad reviews. The whole thing sounds like a real mess. Atari promised that DRIV3R would be a milestone game. They may be right, after all. But instead of being a great example of good unsavory fun, it will stand for the corrupt practices of the videogame cartel.
