Dont know answers about the review score myself. But I would agree exactly with those things they pointed out.This doesn't seem like a professional review, just someone with a blog. I associate these guys with Dark Souls and Sekiro walkthroughs and Wiki data, I didn't even know they had a news space let alone did reviews. It really just reads like a preview though, honestly, most of the review is spent explaining how the game is played and then offering up some examples. The only thing he notes here as a criticism seems to be the music,
…and the voiced dialog, which he thought was amazing and wants more of it.
(which is a silly request for a small development studio to provide for a million lines of dialog, so maybe the reviewer is new to writing about video games).
Which brings me to my own point, why did he score the game an 8.5 when the only things he didn’t seem to enjoy were the music wasn’t as good as it could have been and he liked the voice work so much he demands more of it? Were there bugs, did he have problems figuring out where to go? I don’t mind an 8.5, it’s a great score for a game of this size, but I can’t figure out why it didn’t get higher given his lack of (meaningful) concerns? He scores the Gameplay an 8 - again, not a bad score or anything, but what brought it down two full points? Did the reviewer run into issues with the gameplay?
I posted this on the review site as well as a comment, but it hasn't shown up yet so it seems they curate their comments.
