PR Protip: How to handle criticism in a review

Love the review, Danielle. It’s a fair assessment and completely factual. I’m truly thankful that it was you who wrote it, and wouldn’t even think of requesting you change a single letter.

The comments from the game’s supporters are definitely disheartening. It’s ok to not like a game based on an art style, and Polygon is allowed to score the game however they feel necessary. It goes through multiple levels of editing before it’s fully approved, and they’re entitled to their own, informed opinion of the game.

I urge you to please respect the Danielle’s/Polygon’s opinion and then form your own instead of trying to force your opinion on them.

Atlus PR handled some criticism of their new game like pros, admonishing their fans to dial it back after they went a bit rabid on the reviewer.
