Great idea for a thread, Luke.
I especially like that the average score will be updated with each new review.
I can't wait for the 21st!

No problem. I made the same topic on Gamefaqs, and was kinda worried I had messed. Was on my iphone so it was a bit tough to check. I'm not sure why it didn't occur to me to make this topic here.

BTW currently Arkham City is on pace to have the highest score ever on Gamerankings, might put that in the topic post

Nice! It will be good to see the final percentage because it could be pretty competitive! I'll be getting the game no matter what though.

Yeah IGN is giving a review this Friday and they are the best. They point out the correct positives and negatives. They are like me and even they have the same opinion. Can't wait to see their review and rating. And, thnx Luke All of them are above 90% or 9. :batman2:
I am a thug for the Joker. I work for him last longer. I am also regarded as one of the best thugs.

This is a great way to keep track of each review and get a general consensus of what sort of scores this game is getting from across the board. If IGN really does end up giving this game a 10/10, boy... This game really could be something special. These scores are even trumping my expectatons a little!
