It will just because it's called Zelda.

Why would it get a higher score just because it's Zelda?

Because it's not just the name. It's the history, legacy, and meaning behind it.

It just needs one single bad 50 score like Horizon got from USGamer. One single bad review and the 90 is out of reach. After the (mostly) very positive previews this got less likely but it still could happen for clickbait reasons alone. And for the fact that it is not a Dark Souls, because Dark Souls players cannot enjoy other combat styles anymore.

It's not just because of US Gamer, though. There were more reviewers that gave a score below 90 than there were reviewers giving a score above that (a score of exactly 90 having no impact on if it hits the mark or not.) A score very close to 90, above or below, seems to be fair, in that regard (though Metacritic should really implement a weighting system that reduces the impact of outliers.)

Last I checked, they did exactly that.

Oh, good then. I didn't know. that all but guarantees a 90 for Zelda, from the previews and all. I do expect US gamer specifically to give a 70 or so though, they seemed pretty critical as well, and apparently have no qualms at going really low...



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

Thats what my gut tells me. Im hopibg im wrong. I think reviewers are more picky now and there will always be reviewers that want to get clicks. Also, the game was delayed and whenever that happens reviews are lower because of expectations. Well see!

Btw majoras mask is one of my favorite games of all time and my favorite zelda game.  I wish nintendo would go that direction!

So, basically, you are saying that if the game receives bad reviews is because of everyone else's fault, not Nintendo's.



I hope there was a consecuence in case you were wrong. Like stop looking for attention doing baseless threads.

Well I think on the ones that matter to me IGN, Gamespot etc it will score mid to high 90's. I really really don't care what weird reviewers like the Washington post or The guardian, or Financial times score it.



Meta 98: 37 reviews right now.
