Is 8.5 really a fantastic score?

7 is generally considered average.

The agenda is getting embarrassing, I'm sorry. Gamespot clearly has a bias against the 3DS, particularly Nintendo-published software, and no amount of rhetoric or damage control will change reality.

8.5 is fine imo its pretty high especially for a niche game like FE...

Oh look, people complaining about an 8.5 being too low after others complained about a 9.6 being too high.

Its almost as if people and companies have radically different opinions!

How about you compile data over an entire range of games before making unintelligent comparisons?

Because I don't give a **** about some reviewer's opinions, and neither should anyone else which is the point.

I'd be fine with an 8.5 if it wasn't discredited for pointless stuff, and misinformed reasons. (Multiplayer being WORSE than previous? Only a handful even had any multi. Even less with actually viable multi)

Well, if you don't care about it, then don't make a ridiculous post with faulty logic.

I care about the reviews in the way that it effects how many newcomers come into the series. Because it definitely does.
