Only a 2 for LOTR Conquest? How incredibly harsh, it was at least worth a 5.

They are? 8 sounds probably reasonable for FEAR. Killzone i have no knowledge of.

Aw dip! No doubt that KZ2 review is prime flamebait.

I'm quite interested in hearing what the deal with the new House of the Dead is. It's rare to see a light gun game get over a 5 these days, so I assume it must do some pretty awesome things.

I have no problems with the scores, but I assume they reviewed F.E.A.R. 2 on a platform other than the PS3. (In fact, I'd hope they add as a side note to the F.E.A.R. 2 review, "however, if you're looking to buy a shooter and only own a PS3, you're better off with Killzone 2 because F.E.A.R. 2 runs/looks like shit on that system.")

They give Killzone a 7 because they say it covers no new ground at all.
As for most lightgun games getting 5s I think Umbrella Chronicles got 7s and a few 8s so it's not unusual to see these types of games get good scores. As for Overkill I think from what I have read it's getting good scores because firstly it is fun and secondly it is so well produced with no rough edges. Personally I love these types of games so I'll be buying it.

FEAR was reviewed on 360.

Why should they add the "if you're looking for a shooter and only own a PS3" bit though? Surely it's up to you what games you buy and on what system. It's not up to a magazine to tell you what you should and shouldn't be spending your money on.

The sooner scores are abolished the better tbh.
