Jeez, VG's dishing out low scores at the minute!

This, like most games at the minute, seems like it'll have to wait until it gets to £15.

How is 7 low?! That's only out of 10! Surely a 5 is mediocre and anything under that is low.

Or perhaps the whole web-based scoring system for games is bent out of shape and completely irrelevant.

Who knows?

    I like the sound of the arcade type aspects, good incentive to mix up play in the campaign. I think I've had enough after three games. I'll probably pick it up and blast through when it's silly money price.

      Or VG are just looking for hits/reaction now with their reviews.

      It's very "Price is Right" at the moment.

      Agree with Munkee, 7/10 is a very good score but online reviews are so skewed no-one views anything less than a 9/10 as being decent or playable.

      How can 7/10 possibly be a low score?!

      I'd really welcome a VG chart explaining each score because others need to understand what that means. For me:

      1/10 = Don't go there. Ever.
      2/10 = Seriously, it's still not worth it.
      3/10 = Might be a laugh if you're very curious and see it for very cheap
      4/10 = A couple of good moments but very heavily flawed
      5/10 = Not bad, but only to be purchased at a reduced price
      6/10 = Pretty decent, worth a look at a reasonable price
      7/10 = A good game, for those who like the genre/previous games it's a full price
      8/10 = A very good game, a lot of people will really, really enjoy this
      9/10 = An excellent game, one of the best examples of its kind
      10/10 = An outstanding game, something all gamers should experience

      That's how I weight it up in my head, but it doesn't help when there's no overall score policy/guide from a site.

        How about reading the review, remembering what previous games were like and coming to your own conclusion.

        7 is still a good score, no matter if people realise it or not.
