Everything comes down to what the reviewers feel's and thinks about the game and the score is given in there mind, now if they had a few people review the game and use averages across the board from say 3 people then, numbers might actually carry some weight and choose what people liked and didn't like and include that in the review then they would be allot better than they already are.
I think people shouldn't post if they are not going to contribute to the actual review or agree/disagree with it, but instead just attack the reviewer verbally.

This back-and-forth has lead to a culture in which it is considered de rigueur to award good games a nine or ten.
