i think they said they were having a small break on making it. the last thing they showed was a trailer ways back. there really hasn't been much mention on it since unfortunately.

I wouldn't give it a 5, but about 8 for both it and SM64. I'd give Jumping Flash a 9 because it was the first real 3D platformer, afaik.

This numeral rating system is boring. I wish there was something else that we can rate games according to their own time frame.

1. Chibi Robo - Metacritic score - 75, My score - 95

Yeah, thats all i'm gonna post for now.

On the subject of beyond good and evil, a score in the mid 80s is not a bad score, especially on metacritic. Theres always some detractors who drag the score down. Personally I agree with the mid 80s rating though, so perhaps im beng biased here.

I'm kind of surprised how many people are posting a game that they think the critics got wrong, and then give their own score and it's only 10% more than the metacritic score. If you're that close, you're probably within a standard deviation of the score distribution.

You do realise Gamespot were always biased against the Dreamcast?

Which is why the OP should have set a clear criterion. A reviewer giving a clearly good game a 3/10 is a travesty but the jump from 7 to 8 is almost meaningless. But then again those numbers mean different things to different people.

Because gamespot employs more than one reviewer.
