You think that's a master troll? Jim Sterling from Destructoid gave it a 8.5. He's so in the bag for SkyRim, though.

I don't understand how a game can only be a '9' when the reviewer could only find 'nitpicks'. Strange.

9.3 is a troll? Wow, the entitlement is strong in this one.

I hate that guy. This is the same person who gave Assassin's Creed 2 a 4/10 and Deadly Premonition a 10/10. I don't understand how metacritic finds him credible.

Just want to point out that the Gamespot review which is very comprehensive, also has a fair few spoilers......

Gametrailers has a... "legacy" when it comes to awarding certain games a 9.3.

It's kind of hard to explain without going massively offtopic. "oldschool" gametrailers members know what I am talking about. The 9.3 score is notorious and staff knows about it too. Hence my reaction that the 9.3 is a troll score.

Never really been to GamesRadar before, but this is far and away the best review i've read so far in terms of a lack of spoilers, and a massive sense of excitement about the game... Really wish i didn't have to wait another week..... ARGGHHHH!!!!!

Quick Google Search, and they seem to award 9.3s to GOTYs.... MGS4, Uncharted 2, Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops....

So if we're going to be optimists, this is their score to say this is the best game out there. But yeah, they seem to have a stigma with that number.
