"Funny thing about scores and sales: they don't always see eye to eye. Every now and again a Call of Duty or a Grand Theft Auto will come out and smash it up commercially and critically, and then you find out that Carnival Games – which we gave a 2/10 – has sold over two million copies. It starts you thinking about what really is the biggest franchise of the next-generation? Is the obvious choice, or something else altogether?"
