In seece's defense, I understand what he meant. No game holds onto their early metacritic rating. Every game has come down off high watermark that early reviews give them. He never said it would fall into the low 80s or high 70s guys. So back off a little alright.

Thanks, I certainly do thing this will be 90+, this thread annoys me though, its not going to stay 97 so why shout about it? its pointless, wait for 10 reviews and if its 95/96+ then that is certainly something to start getting excited over.

Pre release scores are either by the official company or they got paid off, and if you notice the 2 perfect scores are from official magazines

 

100
Playstation: The Official Magazine (US)
100
Playstation Official Magazine Australia

Tell me one official magazine that doesnt do this?

 

You are missing the point, the metacritic score is this high at the moment becuase 2 of the 4 things it has to go on are from official PS magazines, and it will drop

 

 

OPM UK gave it a 9/10, so by your theory...they weren't paid enough?

9/10 = still AAA rank, and you are saying they should pay themselves lol o_O

 I remember when a friend was jumping about because MGS4 had an average of 100... only one review had come in.

OPM US gave MotorStorm: Pacific Rift a 6/10, by far it's lowest score on GameRankings and Metacritic.

I wouldn't exactly say they are biased towards ps3 exclusives.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we already have a reply to one of this sort of posts? Those magazines were pretty harsh on other ps3 exclusives.

They also gave Uncharted and Resistance 2 8s.  Both were quite hyped, particularly the latter.  Both also have an average score closer to a 9 than an 8 (Uncharted is actually hovering around 89.7 on GameRankings).

Yeah once it hits 10-15 reviews that about where it will be, unless an onslaught of horrible/terrific reviews come in.  it wont change much either way.  I see this game leveling off at around 93

you seem to believe the OPM was made by Sony themselves - that is completely wrong, they are made by publishing companies, that bought the license from Sony to be able to call one of their magazines "OPM"
