once again, gamespot has gone on the safe side and given a blockbuster game a high but lacking score of 8.5. They mention all the flaws, a few of the quality elements, but miss the most important points. No discussion of animations, no discussion of the audio, no discussion of the myriad differences in the multiplayer from this game to others. And if you don't believe me about gamespot's overuse of the 8.5 score for games that may have deserved more or less, here are just a few: Forza 4, Resistance 3, Deus Ex Human Revolution, and Crysis 2. It seems completely unrealistic to score all of these games the same, considering the number of gaming elements one could be judging them on. I'm disappointed in their reviewing capabilities once again.

I don't understand. I know everyone likes movies, but Bioware games are cinematic epics within themselves. When the end credits rolled around in ME2, I said to myself, "wow, that was a better experience than any movie could ever give." The key is that movies limit your creativity. They assign plot points and decisions that the audience has no say in. Bioware's magic comes in the moral and plot decisions the player gets to make. I'm not against them making a movie. But you may as well just give the game another play through on a new character instead.
