I also don't get what the fuzz is all about? Which so-called professional computer magazine can be said to be the be-all, know-all of video game ressources? If I just recall the scores that EGM tended to hand out at times... and just remember that infamous IGN-incident regarding Kane & Lynch! In my opinion, Sega-16 offers more opportunities for correction and reacts more to its reader-feedback than any so-called professional site I know of: There's the opportunity for a Double Take, there's the reader scores and whatnot.
However, people have this strange tendency that before they start to voice their own opinion, they need someone to voice it for them first! And many want to judge from some numerical scale to see whether a game is good or not - even though tastes differ immensely: What is just a "meh" game worthy a 4 another might see as a very good 8, what someone sees as a must-have game another would never even give a second glance.
It's only when people disagree with someone else's opinion that the discussion starts. That's when people complain or bring up their own thoughts about a particular matter. And that's a good thing! That's how someone who isn't quite sure about the matter can see if he actually agrees or disagrees with the views of the reviewer, and gets a better idea about whether the game might be something for him or not. And Sometimes noone brings up a discussion at all... that might be because the game is practically unknown and/or of such a mediocre quality that noone is interested in it. Only very, very rarely is a game that bad or that good that everybody agrees on it's quality - though that's an incredibly rare occasion, and even then someone may (or usually does) voice that he thinks otherwise. And that's a good thing, too! Nobody has to agree with what everybody thinks just because everybody feels like that.
Remember, review scores can be one of two things: If you haven't played the title, it can be a recommandation whether or not to get a particular game. If you already know the game, it can be a scale to compare to, to find out how much you like the game when compared to other titles. You don't have to agree with it - it may just enable you to think about other aspects you maybe hadn't thought of before, and that helps you decide how much you actually like the game. If you disagree with the review score, this feat has been accomplished (unless it was a totally useless, crappy review (which I admit may exist, but are really, really rare). And if you totally, utterly disagree, this site offers the chance to issue a second opinion - as I said, that's more than most sites I know offer in that regard.
Bottom line: In my eyes a review doesn't, nay CAN'T satisfy everybody - one reviewer simply cannot cover all the different tastes and opinions that exist out there (and neither can two, for that matter). But whether you agree or not, it can serve as a very good guideline - just the fact that you feel the need to utter your opionion about a few particular scores shows that you care about the game, the issue at hand! And that's all that matters IMO.
/edit: btw, in regards to the title of this thread: Galoises blue and occasionally Pall Mall. I'm thinking about quitting, though!
