There was some controversy surrounding a bad review of game from Gamespot, namely due to the fact that the reviewer, Jeff Gerstmann, was fired shortly afterwards.

It was believed by many that his dismissal may have been a result from external pressure from Eidos Interactive, as he gave Kane & Lynch an unfavourable review, while there was a large amount of advertisements for the game on the site. Both Gamespot and its parent company CNET, however, stated that this was not the case and the termination of his employment was for reasons unrelated.
