What is Eidos up to now? Well, Barrington Harvey, PR firm from the UK working with Eidos, confirmed today that British sites are being asked to not post any Tomb Raider: Underworld reviews with scores lower than 80 percent, at least, not until Monday. According to videogaming247.com, a Barrington Harvey rep stated â€œThatâ€™s right. Weâ€™re trying to manage the review scores at the request of Eidos.â€
Why would Eidos be doing this? “Just that weâ€™re trying to get the Metacritic rating to be high, and the brand manager in the US thatâ€™s handling all of Tomb Raider has asked that we just manage the scores before the game is out, really, just to ensure that we donâ€™t put people off buying the game, basically,” the rep added.
