Only an 8.8? That's not very glowing. That game looks like it should get nothing below 9.something. Of course I haven't played it so I can't really say.

dunno where 8.8 came from, the reviewer loved it to bits.
maybe they are leaving room for better games?

Let me bring up to speed on gamespots reviews........getting an 8 from them is like game of the year!!!......lol

Theyre very hard to please, I dont expect any of the launch games to get 9 from them (well maybe PD0, i predict 9.2), not cause im selling them short but just because very few ever get that honour from them and they never give 10s. EVER. if they give a game 7 and up that means REALLY good. Just look at their THAW and GUN reviews. They dont take shit from no one!

I remember when shenmue came out for the DC and every body was giving it 8s, not gamespot. They actually liked it and gave it a 6!!! They just said the presentation was whack but the game was ok.

I trust them though cause it only means that if a game gets a 9 then it TRULY deserves it.

Yeah, games get a 9 way way too easy nowadays. As posted in another thread, an average game (i.e. good, but nothing special) should get a 5, hardly any game should get 9 and 10s!

G4, xplays scale is much more balanced, as the average rateing is 3 out of 5, even though the show is stupid there rateings are still something to consider

8.8 is great, PGR2 (which I love and still play) got 8.7, so based on those rankings, I just know that PGR3 is the right bet for me love.gif . Gotta get 360 SOON ... well, as soon as shortage allows me to jester.gif .

Think about what ratings you are giving some of these games for a second people.

Most of you are trying to give nearly every xbox 360 game a 9 point something rating. That is simply stupid. What happens when we are 2 years down the road getting AMAZING games? How can you show that they are better than the launch games when you are giving launch games 9.2's and 9.3's?

Look at what OXM for example did with the Splinter Cell series. All 3 of those games got generaly the same rating when in fact Chaos Theory blows the original Splinter Cell out of the water in every aspect.

Just something to think about before you go off and say that a certain review is awful just because he is thinking forward.

I'm not pointing this toward any certain person in here really, it's more toward people in other threads that I've been noticing but just thought that I would slap my 2 cents here.

Exactly! Its like 1up giving a launch game a 10. So for the life of the 360 thats as good as it gets? It makes no sense! uhh.gif I rhymed!

I think we all are all missing the point of reviews on a whole, especially you. When a game is rated (and this is true for most sites) the point is to rate a game against the current crop of games. so If soul calibur gets a perfect it isnt because the game is unbeatable and perfect, its that its on a pedestal higher than the current crop of games. Its the game to beat......sure there are gonna be better games in the future but for now this is the best.
