I'm sure it's fantastic...but 10 fantastic? Really?

This is the question of the decade, isn't it? Are review scores from an outlet supposed to measure how good a game is compared to another game in a completely different field with a completely different production budget with a different price, or should they measure how well the game does what it sets out to do?

I agree with the latter, especially in the case of an arcade-style game with a $10 tag and awesome production values for the price, and Hatfield apparently agrees as well. Also, keep in mind that they're now on a .5 scale, not a .1. Any comparisons to the .1 days are moot.

For some games, they are way too harsh, but sometimes they become way too generous, like for this one.

They should be more consistent if they don't want to distort their reputation.
