TheSixthAxis GoldenEye 007: Reloaded Review

TheSixthAxis writes: "Gamers of a certain age may remember the original GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64. Appearing out of nowhere it became a huge hit thanks to its comprehensive story mode and laugh-a-minute split screen multiplayer (die, Oddjob, die!). This is why we approached GoldenEye 007 for the Wii with apprehension when it was released exactly a year ago, as surely nothing could replicate the original. Well, it actually turned out to be one of the Wii’s best games, and now a sexy HD version has come to PS3 and Xbox 360."

Theres clowns on sites on the worldwide interweb giving this game 4/10 & how can these tools claim to be even slightly decent at there job of reviewing games when it is a solid, if not groundbreaking game that has awesome multiplayer. I mean, decent reviewers are giving the game an 8/10, which is somewhere around where I'd place it.
I am all for the overused "everyones entitled to there opinion" BS that seems to be rampant across the net these days, when some half intelligent human beings have the tenacity to question certain scumbuckets giving games that are averaging 9.5 scores overly low scores like 4/10.

There simply has to be a subjective balance that over rides that particular reviewers game tastes, as that is not what gamers are demanding of reviewers. They are simply there to steer us away from bad games. There taste or distaste for any genre should not come into play, in fact, if they do not love all genres, or at least have a deep appreciation for all great games across all genres, then they shouldn't be reviewing games at all.

Now, same goes for all these reviewers that are either sick of the fps market over crowding, or those that hold each & every other fps released up beside Call Of Duty, or BF.....Just review these games on there own merit please.

Great review & deserved score.

I've said this before hundreds of times. The score is meaningless as you should be able to read the review and translate the reviewers point to the numerical number assigned. Sure, you dont agree with the number, but you would have to take into consideration the writers points before you can bring up any sort of argument.

I have seen and read the the low scoring reviews and as such the scored matched what the writer had to say. Personally attacking the reviewer as half intelligent, clowns or scum buckets is completely counteractive to how reviews should be laid out to begin with. Sure, the generalization of 007 has been between 7 and 9, but that doesn't mean every single review should be the same. That's sort of the whole point. If the reviewer doesn't agree then he or she should explain why and allot a score accordingly. They dont have to be scored according to what everyone else thinks.

There is no such thing as subjective balance. Reviews are pure opinion at some point or another. No matter how hard the reviewer tries to be subjective they include opinion that reflect judgement and that's how they should be viewed. Like i said, read the reviews and translate the topics of the review to the score. That way you should be able to make an informed decision yourself without relying on a random numerical value on a made up scale.
