Meh, GameSpot lost relevance and credibility a long time ago. 8/10 isn't bad though. SMT IV is going to be a huge hit regardless, and continue to grow the series fanbase. Seems like with every year, SMT gets more and more popular. Especially with other franchises failing miserably lately, such as Final Fantasy and Tales.
