"There is much to love about Jurassic Park: The Game. The writing is top notch, all of the dinosaurs you love from the film (and more) are there in full-force, and it truly delivers that iconic Jurassic Park vibe that we all had when we saw the film for the first time in 1992. Did I mention that the deaths in the game are amazing?? Yeah, there are hundreds of unique ways to see your characters die-by-dino; truly a sight to behold."
The above excerpt is from a user review that gave Jurassic Park: The Game a perfect 10 score on MetaCritic. Problem is, this review was written a member of the game's development team. The first four user reviews of the game, and before any professional review was up were similar in tone and they all gave the game a perfect 10.
After inspecting the reviewers' names and comparing them to the game's credits, it turned out that one of them belongs to a user interface artist and another belongs to a cinematic artist at Telltale.
TellTale didn't deny the incident, nor did it denounce it. "Telltale Games do not censor or muzzle its employees in what they post on the internet," they said. "However, it is being communicated internally that anyone who posts in an industry forum will acknowledge that they are a Telltale employee. In this instance, two people who were proud of the game they worked on, posted positively on Metacritic under recognizable online forum and XBLA account names."
Ignoring the fact that TellTale expects readers to know the names every game's entire development team, it is in fact illegal not to disclose your affiliation to the product you are reviewing.
