    Insidepulse.com uses 5.0 as a strict AVERAGE. 6.0 is considered above average. This makes 8.5s and 9.0s VERY RARE.

    the trouble with a 10 point score is that some people want to associate it with the 0-100% scale used by the American Education System (which is actually not used in much of the world) so they automatically equate 7 with 70% and think unhappy thoughts. Just becaue basic math can be applied to everything doesn't mean it was meant too.


    1-10 wasn't meant to be treated as a School-like system unless you read garbage like Game Informer
    You need to set a certain philosophy with your scoring, so that we're all on the same page. Otherwise, one guy giving a game a 7/10 could be sayting the same thing that another was saying with a 4.

    I consider a 5 to be a strict run o'the mill Average. Playable, but nothing noteworthy. Things below 5 depend on how much I disliked it. a 6 to me means better, and enjoyable in the sense that it can actually grow on you. A 7 satisfies all the criteria for it to be FUN, a little more than worth a 2nd playthrough, but not a lifechanging experience in any sense.


    EGM claims to use a similar system, with 5 being average (it's even said so in caps in the fine print) despite their newfound mainstream hyperbole. While others use 7 as average and give a skewed slant to Gamerankings to satisfy publishers.

    But Drixel Brings up a good point.
    if it's below 5, it matters less.

    I don't agree with labeling a particular score as "average". What's the average? Are we doing this on a bell curve?

    A 5 is half the points. A game deserves a 5 if it's half good, half crap.

    Holy crap! They made a Tempo sequel for the Sega Saturn? CRAZY! You can buy it here on eBay if you have way too much money for your own good. I am now extremely curious and I want to play the Saturn version to see what it is like, but I sure don't want to spend $60+!

    There is always a differance between accepted procedure and base rules. 7 is average to me as a reader simply because I know from experiene that I will find a game rated about yey high to be an utter bore.

    Super Tempo is pretty rare, so that's why it's so expensive. I really like the Game Gear Tempo JR.

    Well if you buy it for me (Saturn version) I'll tell you how it is.

    I'd love to buy you all a round of Super Tempo. But alas.. I got a trip coming up and almost all of my funds that I don't need otherwise are going towards a huge downpayment on a car in a few years. Sorry.

    But in all honesty I heard it's a lot like the 32X game.

    Super Tempo is one of my most wanted games. I may take the $60 plunge.
