I'm a little underwhelmed. I thought it would get 97-98% with all the praise and hype.

I think reviewers have gotten significantly more conservative about games they assign extremely high scores (95+). I think, at this point, Grand Theft Auto, The Legend of Zelda, and The Last of Us are the only series that will ever score that high -- at least for the near future. Maybe Persona 5 will as well, but that's probably unlikely.

I'd add 3D Mario to that list as well. 3D World managed to score 93 with a game that, although brilliant, was considered a bit unambitious by some compared to the Galaxy games. A new 3D Mario at NX launch, which I consider pretty likely, should be able to score that high. Other than that I completely agree. Reviewers have gotten significantly more conservative.
