Title: Dementium: The Ward
Posted: November 10, 2007 (02:37 PM)
According to GameRankings.com, I have given the lowest score out of anyone for Dementium: The Ward. Other than Game Informer's 5.75/10, the average score is 7.5.

Every review makes the same complaints, but then turns around and gives concession points for being on the DS. I shouldn't have to lower my standards just because a game is on the DS. Metroid Prime: Hunters is the perfect example of a game that moved to the handheld market and still kept its standards high. The DS has noticeable graphical limitations, but that has absolutely nothing to do with a flawed game design.

Thoughts?

Yeah, I don't think you should have to ever give a game pity points due to technological constraints. When a reviewer does something like that, it's like saying a score of 7/10 is average.

I prefer the score I'm getting reflect whether or not the game is fun. Giving pity points for being a handheld is as lame as retro reviews with reasoning like "well this game is old and we didn't realize how bad excessive level building was back then. 10!"

I've really enjoyed it. It has some minor flaws, especially the save system, but it didn't stop the game from being fun. So yeah... out of your mind. But hey, that's still legal for the time being!
