Have you stopped to wonder how the quality of games released in the first half of this year compare to last year? You have? Well wonder no longer, because review aggregate site Metacritic has done the number crunching, and so far the gaming landscape is a critical cornucopia.
Even though the NPD numbers for 2010 show that overall game sales are down from this time last year, the review scores are up. Back in 2009’s first half Street Fighter IV(94) landed the highest score (94), this year there are three titles that have scored higher – Super Mario Galaxy 2 (98), Mass Effect 2 (96), and Red Dead Redemption (95).
