I'm gonna be brutally honest with you.

That review let me down!

I mean really girl, 10/10? Are you high, are you drunk on peyote? Only a 10? You really needed to extend the ratings system to 11 or 12 to accommodate Reach's awesomeness.

It's Halo. It'll get given 10's even if it sucks.

Must be a huge fanboy/fangirl to give ANY Halo game a 10/10.

Because no video game deserves to get a perfect 10 on a 10-point scale.

Why not? Don't think of it as 10/10 or 5* means the game is perfect, because frankly there will NEVER be an absolutely perfect game, a full rating just means it's one of the best games around. There's no need to be so literal. From what I've seen and heard the campaign and multiplayer is amazing, the graphics are good, the gameplay is great, there's few faults and they aren't gonna be huge and if they are Bungie will address them.

yeah, for example OXM has said a 10/10 is a flat out awesome game but not perfect, as nothings perfect. a perfect game would be the unobtainable 11/10.

There are definitely some reviews out there with less than perfect scores, and I'm down with that.

I don't believe the game is perfect, otherwise EVERYONE would love it to bits (but not everyone does).
The 10/10 is simply one perspective of many, though from what I've seen, the majority agree.

I should also mention that the story and fate of Noble Team (including Six, after the credits) really moved me in a way I did not expect from a Halo game.

Of course, I'm reserving that elusive 11/10 rating for Mass Effect 3.

i just messed around in Forge World today at my friend's. holy shit is that map huge, and holy shit can you place a crap ton of different types of objects on the map! the list of objects is also much better organized now. i also really love how you can now "phase" objects which makes it easy to stick something inside something else, without having to do the special save glitch trick in the last Forge.

simply put the new Forge makes Halo 3's Forge look like dog poo quite honestly.

Yeah guys, 10/10 isn't perfect. If it was it'd be just a 9 point scale.

What's the point of having a 10 point scale if you only use 9?

A good reviewer understands that 10 means the highest possible recommendation. It has faults, it's impossible not to have faults, but those faults have minimal obstruction to the enjoyment of the game.

If there really was a perfect game there's be no need to every buy another game again in your whole life.

I will admit I didn't give Reach much credit. I thought it was just another Halo game. But after playing it for an hour, I see it is by far the best Halo game. They went all out.

Damnit Dark, don't say things like that...you're going to make me want to get the game. >.< It is tempting enough from the review and 98% of my friends list playing it.

Get it man. You're missing out (plus epic coops).

Honestly though if it was a 9.9 would everyone feel better? I think a 10 is deserved, the game is *bleep*ing fantastic (blows Halo 3 to pieces which I believe also got a shitton of 10/10s).

If a game were perfect, it'd get the Unicorn. And that'll never happen. Ever.
