Talking Point: Review Scores and Unwinnable Arguments

Last week Nintendo Life published its Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate review; they liked it, despite some flaws that were outlined, and gave it a strong recommendation with a score of 8/10, which counts as "very good" in its review scoring policy. Despite this, it's a game that's prompted a broad range of scores from critics.

Nintendo Life considers the importance of scoring in game reviews, and why it's really about more than a simple number. (3DS, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, Industry, Wii U)
