That game sucked
3DS FC: 1203-9216-5732/PSN: Lazykarl24
Oh no, someone scored a game I've never played slightly lower than i think they should! That will surely cause me to rethink purchasing the game and forego using my own opinion!
You're better than this, Rabbit.
The only thing more consistent than the Pats beating the Texans is my mother's regret she survived childbirth, knowing she spawned a welcher
no 1 is upset about the score
This isn't your scale and grading system. It's theirs. Why do people get so worked up over pointless numbers? You liked the game or you didn't, is somebody with a different opinion giving it a numerical grade going to change that in any way for you?

Gamespot rated Dark Souls a 9.5...
I honestly can't tell how this is even sort of related to anything.
Praise the sun!
eh...why does it matter?
only one's own opinion matters.

burninglink5 posted...Christ, are you guys seriously complaining about an 8.5? That's a fantastic score.
Interesting star trek stuff but all that aside the reviews are done like letter grades it school. 10 is 100% 9 is an A, 8 a B, 7 a C, etc. so 5 is a failing game. B is above average. 7 is just average. Some review places however do use 5 as average so the average score is not a good indicator of a game. I prefer 7 being the average but thats my personal taste. But yes 8.5 to even a 9 is a huge difference in score.
...And unsurprisingly, everyone is focused on the score and not the content of the review (with shaky criticisms and a score that doesn't reflect them).
ROW ROW Fight Da powah
Cheap is an idiots word for effective.
People can't read, they read the byline and said "two criticisms OMG!"
Here you go, children:
While the narrative is filled with interesting melodrama and political intrigue, the unwavering evilness of some of the villains is ridiculous and makes some parts of the story hard to take seriously.
Story, kinda important in an RPG, no?
Avatar creation is limited, with limited options to change physical features. Some elements of the game's interface are cumbersome--in particular, the inventory system. Each unit carries its own stock of items, but the game lacks a simple "give" command to transfer items in-between fights, necessitating that you put everything you want to pass along into storage with one character and remove it with another.
There are some more.
More advanced combat information, like the odds of your companions performing guards or follow-up attacks, can be tough to find and isn't shown at all in the default pre-engagement screens. The local multiplayer is also disappointing given both the robustness of the StreetPass features and the history of multiplayer in portable Fire Emblem games. It consists of cooperative battles of three units from each player's team simply fighting a group of enemies one-on-one in sequence for items and renown points. Compared to the full-fledged fights and trades that StreetPass offers, the local multiplayer is ridiculously limited.
More than justifies an 8.5

Anyone read the reviewer's replies to some comments? I have to say I agree with them. Now if the website could be consistent in its scoring...
