Well, this doesn’t look good at all. Unfortunately, some Harmonix employees were caught posting positive reviews about Rock Band 4 on Amazon.

They would have gotten away with it but some Reddit users caught them and the situation became pretty embarrassing for Harmonix. Below you can see an image of positive reviews posted by Harmonix employees. Beware, some of them are cringe worthy.

The reddit post highlighted reviews made by Morgan Milardo, Harmonix’s legal and music coordinator, Shawn Witt, lead character artist and Richard Cody.

On the other hand Harmonix has released the following statement to explain:

Harmonix has clarified its internal policy about posting reviews of our own products on retail sites, and we’ve asked that existing reviews be edited to identify Harmonix employees or be removed entirely. While we believe the reviews posted by a few employees were sincere and without ill intentions, as a studio we don’t believe these are appropriate actions. We appreciate the feedback from the community, and take our relationship with our fans seriously.

Rock Band 4 is not a bad game and music lovers would go ahead and buy it, so there was no need for such tactics by the company. Of course, if what Harmonix is saying is infact true then I guess actions of certain employees have put Harmonix in the line of fire.
