Go to Gamefaqs, there's plenty of reviews like that. People constantly try to get well written negative reviews banned, but worship poorly written fanboy reviews. Maybe, I've spent too much time on the Lunar boards on Gamefaqs, but that also seems to be the case here. How many topics are their praising a review that was extremely negative towards the series? By my count zero...
Although, to be fair I haven't glanced over every single topic so I could be wrong.
GameFAQs is not a game magazine, so that's not a fair example. GameFAQs reviews can be good, but are best taken with a grain of salt. A professional publication or website on the other hand should know better.
Also, we have posted and discussed negative reviews of Lunar: Dragon Song in the past, especially those that have made good points against the game which we agree with.
Anyway, praising a negative review is not the same as picking apart a positive review for getting its facts wrong. In the first case we're making a value judgment based on how we like the game; in the second case, we're criticizing the review's observations. One dispute is based in opinion, the other in the use of facts. In this case, we're criticizing a review for getting its facts wrong and misjudging the game for potential buyers who read the magazine.
Finally, as I said before, the lack of posts to substantiate your claim does not amount to a proof, but rather a lack of evidence either way.
