Why do they even include this obv attention seeking publication in review averages?
3/10 for Dead Island
5/10 for Gunstringer

These games are both not perfect, especially Dead island which is riddled with bugs, but there's no justification to scoring them THAT low other than a blatant grab for publicity.
I generally don't care for review, but this is just troll food being needlessly publicized among otherwise reasonable review sources.

They've done this for years. Why do you care?

Oh No! Someone actually uses the entire scale, instead of rating games from 7-10! They should be banned straight away!

Reasonable review scores? From who? Most big-name titles get a 8/10 for merely existing from most of the popular reviewers. That's not reasonable. here's nothing reasonable about review scores, when you have to try to get a low score.

I know at least with metacritic, they have a weighted formula that they use for creating their aggregate review score. So a 3/10 may actually count higher when considering how hard Edge is on games compared to everyone else.

I don't mind places not afraid to use the full scale, and bring attention to games they weren't satisfied with. as long as their reasoning is valid.

they don't use valid reasoning or even remain consistent

Dead Island is not a 3/10 game by any scale.

Edge is weird. But I think Jim Sterling deserves to be banned more. From Earth. Via rocket. Into the sun.

I can understand a 3/10 for dead island if you're getting into the technical aspects of the game and not just judging it by fun.

its a technical disaster every aspect of the game is glitchy.

The game more than deserves that 3/10 score.

It definitely has some technological problems but it's not like the game is an unplayable mess deserving of a 3/10

More important Gunstringer is a great game, a best of it's genre and 5/10 is just not justified.
