I say 93, it will get detracted for certain reasons by some outlets, and be lauded and have points added for the very same reasons in other outlets and publications. And all will be as it ever was, and the game will sell a lot.
my gut says 94.
You look at how smooth the animations, and reactive the gameplay elements are.
How many aspects there are, with such as dogs A.I snifing out scent trails, The people with Line of sight/sounds effecting their actions, and the smaller stuff like the foot prints in mud, getting clothes dirty, or clothes getting degree's of "wet" depending on if its raining and how hard/ if your jumping in water ect.
Theres no justifial way to give this game a 60 or lower score.
The game is just too well made and polished, from what we ve seen of gameplay.
Never the less, Im betting theres atleast one Pro xbox review site that does just that.

Going by what I've seen...
They've completely finetuned and improved everything over the original. Gameplay is smoother, there's more options either in combat or avoiding combat, there's more exploration and traversal and a much needed boost in variety of enemies.
The violence may be too much for some reviewers, but overall, it will either match or surpass the original.
96 I expect an emotional, brutal journey that will take Naughty Dog's storytelling to a next level.
