7 is not really that good...


Seven is a good score. Don't get confused.

Seventy percent is a B grade. It's not outstanding, excellent or very good, but it IS good.

Besides I have seen several reviews including ONM and german source give it low eighties. It is unusual and different; precisely why I have a Wii in the first place.

I'm not sure where you are from, heh.

70% here is a C-, at my school, that counts as a failing grade for major courses.

^^ whoa??
that's really harsh. 70% a failing grade at school? Have I gotten that old??

The UK.

C grades start at around 55%, depending on course and what not. It's all confusing much like game reviews and scores.

I think most normal people would see 7 out of 10 as a good score for a film, game or album. Basically it means (to me anyway) that it is a game that I would probably play through once and then trade-in. Games in the 80s or higher tend to be games I complete 100% or have excellent and long-living local multiplayer or online.

Roughly.



Yes.

I'm currently playing it and it boosts some of the best graphics and soundtracks of many wii games, but it is boring. I'm happy the game's not mine.

Wow, that sucks. 70 is a C in the US, at least it was. 65 was a D, below that was an F

Back to the topic, I've been considering picking this game up this week. Perhaps I'll have to rent it first to make sure it doesnt suck

Like so many Wii games, the reviews swing wildly from high to low. You're going to have to read the reviews if you want to know whether you'll like this game or not, but I suspect that those who do like it will like it a lot.

Disruption in action, eh?

Not is this case, I think. Just a really niche product that absolutely tickles fans while leaving other people out in the cold.

There's a reason why the Resident Evil franchise isn't survival horror anymore. And even when it was, it used good ol' sci-fi zombies instead of wierd Tibetan mysticism.

Cursed Mountain is just too out there. But people like me love games that deviate so far from the norm.

I guess you're right. Still, it's nice to mention disruption in the context of wildly differing review scores. I, for one, think it's absolutely brilliant to see some 'jumping in' and others meeting it with raging bemusement
