74 is mediocre since when? It's not a great score for sure, but wouldn't mediocre be in the 60s or so?

I mean, isn't Robobot the highest scoring review wise (excluding spin-off s), and it's at 81? You would think by now people would realize these games scoring in the 70s is par for the course.

Then again this is the Switch board...

The score is an abysmal 45. No "not bad" game deserves a 45.


If you use the full scale of 0-100, 45 is only slightly below average. A bad game would be even less. Unfortunately most reviewers give almost everything at least 70 so the review scores themselves become hard to compare between reviews.

Not surprising.
If you were excited about this game prior to knowing the score, you most likely will enjoy it... if Kirby games are for you, a 73 scoring Kirby game isn’t a fatal blow.
To those who already thought it was overpriced at $60 (like me), now we definitely won’t be buying it.
End.

Robobot is almost half the price and offers more content and original ideas. Is it unreasonable to expect a full-priced $60 Kirby game on the Switch to be a substantial improvement over 2 year old 3DS game?

"it’s boring. Really, really boring."

Whats the number one thing you want a game to do? Entertain you. If a game is boring then it should score low. The author says it's not a bad game as in it's functional and looks good. If your baseline for a game to rate higher is that pressing the jump button makes you jump then you have low standards.

It's why review scores are worthless and should honestly just be ignored when researching a game.

This is very true

But if people saw you giving something like The Last of Us a 45 because "it's not bad", would certainly get you attacked.

Yes, but is why metacritic doesn't work.

I remember people going mad and attacking a guy that dared to give BotW a 7.
