A common complaint surrounding the video games press is the over reliance on review scores as a means of determining a game's overall quality. Opponents of such a system argue that a reviewer's complex opinion is impossible to sum up in a simple numerical score whilst supporters point to scores as an easy way of summarizing a length review. Is the importance of scores overstated? Is it right to compare games based upon single numbers? All things considered, does the industry need review scores at all?
