I was curious to see how the public reacted to GameCritics review of GOW. Woooo....the poor guy is getting crucified. I read his review and he did have some solid points. I didn't agree with like 2 of his view points. Outside of that, the review seemed legit. I don't agree with the scoring though. I'm not mad at it either though.
The editor there said that they tend to review games harsher because they feel as though 9's and 10's are passed around so casually. Some of the angry subscribers there was accusing the author of being a fanboy for Nintendo because he rated Zelda BOTW a perfect 10, although he had some valid critiques about that game. (I went back and read his review on that game) 7.5 isn't a bad score, but I understand the frustrations of the supporters of the game. You have to critique all of the games that way. Everyone and their mom gave BOTW the highest praise, so naturally from GC's standpoint, you would think that they would give the game an 8-9. Nope... they got a 10.
A 94 in score is still great guys. It doesn't change the merit of the game. GOW is still GOTY material. With Red Dead 2 coming out this year, I can only imagine what other games will be worthy.
