    Well if there are four reviewers each giving out a score out of 10 without decimals, chances are it'll be up to 4 lower than what one reviewer would give out.

    It's not rare to see games' review scores panning out in range of 60 (Some magazine gave out 2/10 and another gave out 4/5 kinda thing).
    Famitsu review score 10% lower than what you expected is within margin I'd say.

    I'm now much more intrigued by Sigma Harmonics, the gameplay and theme looked interesting.


    And yes, I think Rhythm Tengoku Gold deserved a better score.

    Nice I'm kinda intrigue about Inazuma eleven, a new twist on the RPG genre (sports/ RPG). I just hope they localize it to english.

    I didn't know tokyo majin Genpushou has a game? LOL and Sigma Harmonix has a decent score, nice.

    Didn't know review score had any meanings. I use the numbers to figure out how much money the reviewer/magazine got from developers/publishers.

    Famitsu scores actually include a criteria "otakuness". That's why every Gundam game scores 4~8 better than they should be; Famitsu reviewers are simply Gundam otakus. (And considering any game featuring Gundam is a good game for them, Operation Troy pretty much scored just above Beijing 2008 in practical terms)

    More on-topic, depends on what details accompany the score. Personally, I'd give it 8/10 because of its narrow selection of track genres and gimmicky controls. Good game otherwise.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Rhythm Tengoku Gold sooo deserved more than that, I'm mercilessly addicted to it!
    And yeah, I'm very interested in Sigma Harmonics. Inazuma Eleven looks like it's well worth playing as well, but I have no past experience with it.

    The Level 5 Premium Silver (I think) demo pack has Inazuma Eleven on it, oh so much fun.
