I've spoken on my thoughts on reviews in an EDGE forum a while back.. Sure its 8.0 but then if you go to IGN or look at Famitsu there are higher scores...
Personally I never go by one review/source alone and indeed it helps to use personal preferance too. For example a videogame like Last Blade II would be given a rating of 7/10 but I would still buy it because I know its a top 2D fighting game. The reason being for its 7/10 score is because it won't appeal to everyone. The same could go for R-Type or Contra... The only exception here is Radiant Silvergun... Probably one of the finest shooters ever made.
I think 8/10 is a fair score for this game.
I would have given mario 64 10/10 when it first appeared and prolly still give it 9/10 now, Everyone i know who has played both for an extended period seems to agree with this too.
Dont get me wrong I class 8/10 a very good score i am not knocking the game at all and it is the best title to come out in a long while, on any format , ICO was the last game that really blew mw away, and that is up there with mario64, zelda and earlier games such as secret of mana.
I just feel that all the way through Mario 64 I couldnt wait to find the next little area, and i knew it would feel fresh, you just don't get that with sunshine.All too samey for me, it isn't shouting at me to play it.
