Gameractor: Trine Review

Mikael Sundberg writes:

"It's hard to score Trine. It is without a doubt a very ambitious project and from an artists point of view complete. The music is extraordinary, the voice acting well executed, and the dialogue even reminds me of Discworld at times (very high praise indeed). And instead of regarding it as a costly downloadable game you almost have to see it as a cheap retail game that somehow got distributed digitally. I'll give it a very strong seven, and much like Icarian and Lost Winds I give it a strong recommendation even though the number of gameplay minutes per Euro isn't the highest. Frozenbyte have joined the ranks of Housemarque and Remedy as the best Finland has to offer the world of gaming. Go Finland!"

Yet they give it a 7..
their reaction to the game doesnt resemble the numerical value at all =/

That's because you who are obsessed with scores think that anything below 9.5 is a bad score. Lets not forget that a 5/10 is suppose to be the middle ground, and anything above is technically a good thing. But I guess we did forget. 7 was once a recommendable score, then it became 8 then I guess somewhere along the line 9.3 wasn't even good enough.

lol I knew there were a few stereotyping fanboys around.
7 is average, not 50 -.- i dont know what kind of school you went to but thats how the cookie rolls.

If you call exceptional and give it an avg score thats just stupid, kinda like your stereotyping.
If your gonna priase a game, atleast try to make the numerical value fit with your review.
By the review the game deserves at least an 8.. oh wait thats right.. you didnt bother reading the review.

the review suggests its MORE just avg.
If every1 thought like you then every game would get 7s... coz its 'recommendable'. There is a scoring system for a reason, no need to get all b1tchy about it

Everywhere outside of America, 5 is average.

WildArmed3204d ago

really? Coz in Australia, and England )from personal experience) I know that when it comes to grading 70% is still avg =/

PirateThom3204d ago

Getting 1 out of every 2 questions right is not average.

I submit stuff even if I don't necessarily agree with it.

The whole "reviews debacle" have gone overboard this generation in my opinion. I read reviews for information, but ultimately I decide for myself if I like a game or not.

Generally people only look at the score and whine on and on. One problem is that different sites have different standards of scoring. In the end it's just an opinion, and we all have one, like it or not...
