Here's my issue with review scores, especially when taken out of context. A 5/10 should be a pretty decent score. A 5 should be average, and the average game should be somewhat entertaining. That's their sole purpose. They only exist to provide entertainment. An average game is guaranteed to be more fun than your average kick in the balls.

But people see 5 and think fail and see 7 and think average. It's almost a reflex at this point.

This thread should be nice and civil. :)

Good score for FEAR 2. I'm still saving up for PC parts to give it the right system to play on.

FEAR 2 has the lowest system requirements possible. A $600 PC can give you over 40fps at the higuest settings.

Great score for Let's Tap and Hotd: Overkill
And FEAR 2, it also got a great score, but I was anticipating a 9.

Let's see, if the IGN thread was 1000+ pages long and the game got a 9.5, then that means...

Sir, If I linked you my CPU-Z information, you'd cry of how bad my PC is.

I think you "Uh oh" people are expecting too much. We'll see though. I hope they don't care about a review enough to act stupid over it.

Sega fanboy very happy to see that the House of The Dead Overkill recieved an 8.

As a message board fan, I'm very interested to see further reactions from the Killzone 2 fans in the audience. On a side note, I just secured myself the ability to play Killzone 2 when it's released, can't wait to play it!

Hmmm, got an 8 from Eurogamer as well, perhaps this might be worth picking up after all. If only Atari/Simbin would get the damned demo released :p

Now its time to bailout, before 'teh bias, teh bannings and teh lock'.

It is fine. Just remember, Core i7 or AM3 if you want a system with upgrade capabilities, and that will last for at least 2 more years playing everything at higuest settings.

Nevermind FEAR 2 but I am REALLY curious as for how Race Pro, Let's tap and that house of the dead game got higher scores than Killzone 2 and Halo Wars

So this seems to come from the review:

This intimate, sizzling combat feels more like that of FEAR, but is actually more like [...] Black

A gun game of the truest sense, its bullets and ragdolls offer a literal take on the 'theatre' of war.

A quasi-tactical shooter, its action rivals any in STALKER or COD4
From the same source, a quick recap on the text:


But apparently the game has:
No sense of humour; too much swearing from your irritating co-soldier, Rico; story is awful; "defaults to the genre's worst impulse" all the time (using obvioiusly-placed hardware, for the most part).

Multiplayer is amazing, apparently, but (final paragraph):

Thanks largely to its online play, Killzone 2 should find itself a fanbase no one can overlook. In singleplayer, it's a testament to craft and imagination, if only because one is so immaculate while the other barely exists. It fights a great battle, it's just a shame about the war.
And another take on the review:

Just finished reading Edge's review of this, they liked the gunplay, the story 'stinks', the Helghast provide some of the best enemy AI seen yet, FEAR is name checked along with Stalker and COD4, the levels could be played in any order and still have no effect on the plot, multiplayer is good and probably bolsters the score of 7/10

Credit goes to Treble and windowlicker over at rllmuk.
