It doesn't read like that at all, the superlatives repeatedly say 10. Like always EG discuss the scoring as a team(as exposed by DF getting Ico Hd collection knocked down) and the review text versus score looks like it got collectively hobbled too.
Fifa, CoD, AC et al are so tired that they can't seriously tell people the same shit is 8 or more, and this isn't 10. It is bullshit, they know it and we know it.
Skyward sword, Mario Galaxy and Wii Sports all had many moments of failed input that frustrated, but each and every one of them is 10, even the false reason given isn't plausible.
I see this score as very damaging to EG's credibility. These type of games are exactly what jaded core gamers need every generation to get excited about gaming again, and so need to be held up as gold standard experiences. EG haven't helped their readership or themselves with this nitpicking score imo.
