I’m not sure where all these “high” scores are that you’re referencing. The only truly “high” score is the 90 from that Xbox site. You might be able to argue that an 86 is “high”, but every other score is an 82 or lower, which makes them mid-level scores at best.
The rest of your post is just not worth responding to. Don’t know why you’re so desperate to defend this game. If you enjoy it, just enjoy it.
High scores are indicated in green, average scores are indicated in yellow and bad scores are indicated in red. You are the perfect example of the modern gamer who only accepts 9s as a high score. 9 is closer to perfect, anything 8 and above is considered high which this game is getting aswell.
The bigger question to you is why are you trying to downplay a game i can safely bet you havnt played? Does the score really matter to you?
