So who is cancelling their Luigi Mansion preorder because it got a 6.5?

Out of one review? Do people really do this?

I am. That's a terrible score, and I don't want to shame my collection by allowing that kind of filth to enter it.

For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

so let's say 10 game review companies review the game and only 1 out of the 9 gave it less than 8/10 for the score. i'm sure there is one person that would cancel his pre order. weird how some people function

This is probably why game reviews should disuse the rating system and simply have a buy, rent, or skip it system. People get hung up on one review too much, especially around here.

There is a 99.9% chance it is.

Knowing some posters on here, I wouldn't put this past them being a serious post.

The thing with review scores is that most of the time they're subjective and what may work for one person may not for another, unless the game is just objectively bad (such as being glitched, or otherwise unplayable or along the lines of Superman 64). It's like when mario3d land and new super mario bros 2 came out for 3DS, lots of people bashed these for not being innovative enough and too generic and that they were tired of the same old routine. Well I hadn't played a mario game in like 8 years and loved both of them, they were solid games and were a lot of fun to me. I'm sure Luigi's mansion is a great game that will appeal to some gamer's tastes and not others. Take the score with a grain of salt and make up your own mind.
