    Every time one of the review sites issues a silly score, I'm reminded of the RVB PSA: Game On.

    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.

    Silly scores, and like others mentioned, there's score inflation going on.


    Besides, what did people expect from crapsites like IGN? An honest look?

    There isn't even a single flaw listed in the review, which is ironic because by logic shouldn't it be "more of the same with a new label"? That's what most shooter sequels are like, Halo isn't any different.

    Haven´t played the game, 99% sure I never will.
    Does not actually surprise me that IGN gave it a 9.8... hell its IGN of all things, they will probably give Black Ops 2 9.5 or a 10... you will see.

    I agree fully, I dislike scores as a whole but I realize that it isn't going away so I just want to champion the 0-5 scoring which I find less obnoxious ^^
    Scores are for people that don't care to read a full review, the what lies in the words not the number.

    And what if black ops 2 is a 9.5?
