He's okay, but his style and personality is very tiring and I can't deal with it for long.
If he liked it that much, that's entirely his opinion, which is what you get from any review (the reviewers opinion). I can tell you right now though, there was no bribing or greasing of wheels on the part of NCsoft or ArenaNet with that review. That much I know for a fact (in case you are implying there was).
No, most review websites have very strong policies about accepting any type of gifts at all. Besides if someone "bought" a score it doesn't really help in the generation of metacritic. BTW metacritic will show you how a particular company scores things compared to others. For example Gamespot is a bit lower scores than average, while IGN gives a tad bit higher
O yea to answer OP question. I dislike video review or video pretty much altogether.
He is okay, would like a more objective view from him (he often don't explain why it's fun or boring. But he finish games, so he brings the entire experience out there, not just the first half hour.
Also get rid of the rating system, has no place when he review so many genres.
Angry Joe has a lot going for him. He does fly off the handle on certain occasions and miss the point on others, but that's usually in his vlogs and not in his actual reviews. He does exaggerate on occasion but he's still a lot better than the vast majority online reviewers that I've seen.
If he's got a review on a game I'm interested it's usually one of the sources I use to make my decision.

yeah, one of the best reviewers out there if you ask me..or at least i like him like others have said, fun and informative
Joe is a glorified troll just like the Zero Punctuation guy.
If his reviews were 15 minutes shorther then sure, he'd be fine..
But as it is, his attitude gets tiring after 25+ minutes.. He is a bit "everyone who thinks otherwise, is an idiot" for me.
I like juice
I think he does make some good points and definitely puts a lot of time and effort into research, production and arguments. I just don't like his presentation style. Unless it's something I'm really interested in but slightly put-off by certain aspects I don't tend to watch reviews anyway, but in those instances I will look at his. I couldn't watch him "just for entertainment" though. I don't find him very funny or endearing enough for that.
I watch him occasionally. Him and Totalbiscuit are my go to when wondering if I should buy a game.
To prevent any flaming - I don't follow them blindly and I acknowledge that they both have flaws in their attitude.
I thought his reviews are honest and unbiased. That was before I've seen his GW2 review. Since then I don't watch him anymore.
