Well I read the Gamespot review just now and I'm not sure why they gave the game this score only thing I could see with my glance was that they hated the bad connection and such.
Still I bought the game just now trough impulse mainly beacause it is produced/published whatever trough this company since last game I bought was Sins Entrenchement which is a great success and I enjoy playing it from time to time.
Also I really like impuluse at first I hated it since it was just annoying and sometimes it told me that i didn't have sins installed even though I had donwloaded it trough it and so on but still it's great since I can get full use of my connection and downloading demigod takes less than one hour which is pretty good considering the size of it.
all in all can't gamespot just change their review since it won't affect the online play of the game anymore since well it was the first day what game have you played that didn't have annoying bugs the first few weeks even months that turned out to be great. First game that comes to mind is Age of Conan which gamespot gave 8.5 but was worth like 4.5 since the game had alot of major bugs which kicked me out of the game
