Stacking Review [Game Rant]

Sebastian Gaweda of Game Rant writes: "From the creative minds at Double Fine comes ‘Stacking,’ the tale of a small boy with an incredible talent. How does it stack up to Double Fine’s other productions?" (EA, PS3, Stacking, Xbox 360) 3/5

I disagree with the score. Solviing everything to 100% took me about 8 hours, so I wouldn't call this short

I haven't played this yet, but everything I've read said its stellar.

What I want to know is, is this game really a 6 or is it a victim of a crappy review system where a score plummets 20% with every point thats dropped?

Just curious as to what people think of a 5/5 system.

A X/5 system is good

Is 92% really inferior to 93% while a 3/5 is still good but not as good as 4/5 or 5/5.

Giantbomb uses it to great effect. I know a 1/5 sucks and a 5/5 game is a must buy but is a 90% from IGN still a must buy?

See, I think the increments are too high. I do see 3/5 as a good score at all. Its barely over 50%. If this were school we'd be talking about an average C student.

Even 4/5 I would see as good, but not great. 80% is not top shelf. Not to say the game cant be enjoyed. I'm just saying, thats a big gap between just good enough and outstanding.

Now if they do .5 or .25 increments, that allows for a bit of nuance in their scoring but alot of these sites with this method seem not to do that. And if they do, why not just go out of 10 or out of 100 and be done with it.

No wonder we cant get any consistency in this industry.

And then you get some that use 6 stars or 4 stars. God, dont get me started. That might be ok if reviewing a steak, but I think a better gauge is needed for games. Its as ridiculous as going 2 thumbs up.

I should have replied to you. Gamerant allows for .5 stars. Check their X-Men Arcade or Ghost Trick reviews.

I think this is the lowest score I've seen given to this game? I like it as its a welcome breaks from other games.

Gamerant allows for half stars.
