Magazine gives Super Mario Galaxy... 11 out of 10

Super Mario Galaxy is getting rave reviews all around the planet. It seems Mario Galaxy is not only great or excellent but it beats perfection. Nintendo la Rivista Ufficiale, an Italian gaming magazine, has awarded an unprecedented 11 out of 10 to Super Mario Galaxy. (See the scanned magazine page below.)

Mario Galaxy is a superb game and probably one of the best of all time but this is pure dumb and childis to give 11 out of 10. I can't believe there could be reviewers dumber than GameSpot's but here they are...

Maximum PC did give Half Life 2 an 11 out of 10, and that's a pretty credible site/magazine.

They do this because they overrate games like Halo 3 so when a better game comes along they have to give it a better rating. Well since 10/10 is the highest, they just have to do something stupid like go to 11.

What does that even mean anyways? Its better than perfection?

MK_Red4926d ago

Well, Half Life 2 is one of the best games ever but even that magazine did was utterly stupid and childish. Has a movie magazine or a tech one ever done something this childish? It's like fanboy talk not official review.
Halo fan: "Halo rulez, 11/10". MGS fan" MGS rules, 11/10" Mario fan (This case) " Mario galaxy rules, 11/10". This is simply unproffesional and wrong.

11 out of 10 frequently means a PERFECT game, whereas 10 might be just really really good.

And even the 11/10 doesn't mean perfect, I fail to see how that makes the reviewers dumb.

Seraphim4926d ago

because there is NO SUCH THING as a PERFECT game it's idiotic to give a game a score greater than 10. I don't care how good the game is, rate it on the scale of 10. I mean what's next? Because games are getting to many perfect scores they'll bump up the ratings to 15? Stupid. Obviously that won't happen but still... Plain idiotic to rate a game above 10 no matter how good it is, or how much you like it...

Does it get any more absurd? I've played it, beat it and reviewed it... It's a good game, but it's not revolutionary and it's not perfection or above it. I gave it an 8 out of 10 and that was being generous. It offered up nothing knew to people who've been playing mario since he 1st stepped into 3-d space.

As I stated in my blog review... You control mario like you have for over 10 years now. With an analog stick. That's not really revolutionary to me.

MS wouldn't allow a non-360 game to get GOTY. It's not going to happen.

Asinine, thy name is "Nintendo la Rivista Ufficiale"

I've said it before and I'll continue saying it. Gaming press = Celebrity tabloids. Ridiculous.
