Yeah I'm wondering the same thing, or is this like asking who your voting for?

Re: NBA 2K8 Review (360)

LOL - I will get my sliders out here in the next day or two. Just remember, my sliders may not be right for everyone. Mine have to account for my age. Not as quick on the stick as I once was.

Re: NBA 2K8 Review (360)

Really nice review.

I personally would have given it more of a 9, but I understand why it got an 8.

I am going to readjust my sliders to make the layup more realistic.

Anybody with suggestions.

He also noted that it plays fantastically in spite of those.

But we here at Operation Sports grade games on a 10 point scale. I can't speak for other review sites, obviously, but an 80% isn't "average" if you're grading on a 100% scale (like back in school). That's above average, while 90% would be unbelievably good...whether it's in pure fun factor, realism, etc etc. "Average" would be a 7, or good with some VERY significant issues, etc.

But the review content explains the 8. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, though...and I obviously can't speak for Clay, but that's what I got from the review. I'd be pretty confident that he was closer to a 9 than an 8.0, but we can't give decimal points in the scores. The review itself certainly wasn't predominately negative, however.
Fair comment -- I think that moving to either a 100-based or a decimal based system would give the reviewers here more latitude to provide a numeric value that more accurately captures the text based review

That being said I will now likely be banned for life for having made the above comment

That's if anyone can actually see the above comment

Have fun.........

I score my reviews on how the game plays out of the box. Period. The game I am playing right now (with slider tweaks and other adjustments) is a 10/10. The game that I play at default everything is a 8/10.

Questions?
I think that this is a sound qualifier -- it makes sense

Sorry to here about your stick work problems. I guess it happens to the best of us

Have fun.........
