When Sega produced Nancy Drew: White Wolf of Icicle Creek for the Wii last year, they sent me a free review copy. I like getting free games, and I like the Nancy Drew series, so I decided to make the review extra-special by filming a video review, not just writing a review.
If you haven't seen the review I did, here it is:
Recently I wondered, "Hey, why hasn't Sega sent me a free review copy of Her Interactive's Hardy Boys DS game that they produced?" So I checked in with Paul, my semi-boss when it comes to videogame stuff, and he says that Sega's PR person didn't like my review. Specifically, Paul shared this part of the email from Sega with me:
"Sorry that your reviewer didn’t enjoy the game…his score is actually drastically lower than any other score we’ve received so far."
Ouch! I guess that means no more free games from Sega for me!
