Reviewers Are Dumb.
It was for the Wii. If it were a PS360 game (With graphics to meet the console expectations) it would be sitting on a 85-90 Meta score.
Well, the problem with that comparison is that Radiant Dawn didn't have good graphics for a Wii game. (although, most SRPG do look terrible)
From what I gather, it didn't seem like a big advancement from PoR. And since when is a 79 bad?!
That's a good score.
