So I just re-read the Atelier Rorona review and it seems Gamespot is doing a really poor job in reviewing the Atelier series. Rorona has 6 whereas Meruru gets 5, while it should strike anybody as obvious that Meruru is a dramatic improvement over Rorona. Gelugon_baat wil probably reply that they were not done by the same reviewer, but entrusting reviews of the same series to different people doesn't seem excatly a bright idea. Atelier Totori wasn't reviewed at all (luckily for it, I would say), so I fail to fathom why Meruru suddenly is, in such a poor excuse for a review.

At least, Gamespot would better entrust this kind of review to someone who does NOT freak out on Victorian-style clothing.

@Gelugon_baat I don't think you can dismiss it like that : a big website like gamespot should have some kind of coherence between its writers. If sexualisation is a criteria, then it should be raised every time and not just for Meruru. And guess what? I just re-read the Atelier Rorona review (which scores better than Meruru, that doesn't make ANY sense) and it doesn't complain about sexualized outfits or general character design.

@FireMage180 this "A good reviewer would rate this game with the target audience in mind" I couldn't say it better. Firemage, you are a genius.

@Gelugon_baat No, but reviewers should definitely respect their readers, which is pointing out objective items (gameplay, graphics, etc. the game is not perfect) and not assuming other people's opinions or liking are trash.

"sexualized outfits on very young female protagonists" waouh this is the most terrible argument I've ever read to nail down a game. Don't ever walk in Akihabara pussy, you'll faint within 5 sec. And btw games like Xenoblade have equally (if not worse) sexualised oufits : I don't remember that to be pointed out in the Xenoblade review...

Seriously I'm tired of reading painfully biased review from people who obviously hate the character design from the very start, and who above that consider that everyone should think the same. This looking down on people who obviously like those games (see the readers' score and reviews) is insulting and shows the narrow-mindedness of those so-called "professional" reviewers : they need to go.
