Never really gave this too much thought until recently. I remember reading in magazines (EGM for example)and on some websites, that when games are reviewed the rating is basically how games compare to other games on the same platform. So then, with quantum redshift as the latest exapmle, why does it seem as if the score is affected by offering "nothing really different" from the wipeout series? Why compare it to wipeout if its not even on the XBOX? .. Yes they are similar games but on different systems, thus seeming to go against the statment(s) made about only rating games against games on the same platform. Sega GT would be another example that comes to mind. Just wondering what some of your thoughts were on this.
