EDIT: Big thanks you all the people on TL who helped to VASTLY improve my original addition of the criticism section You've linked up relevant references in the mainstream press, enhanced the wording, cut out the unnecessary bits and turned it into a great little piece that follows the wikipedia guidelines.
UPDATE: The criticism section has temporarily removed and the article locked for 3 days. The reason is not opposition to the new section but rather a desire by the wiki-people to make sure there is a consensus about the content to be included and a variety of well founded sources.
So I'm going to start updating this main link with good sources and I encourage anyone wanting to contribute to also add good links for inclusion.
The ultimate aim is to create an unbiased section that is well founded in fact and supported by a variety of articles from around the web.
Our current sources are:
-The original Frank Pearce interview:
-An INC Gamers article on the petitions to include LAN support:
-An INC Gamers article on the lack of even Semi-LAN support:
-A Game Rant article discussing the lack of LAN:
