Lifeless Planet review

@EricJohn004 Your fundamental mistake is your belief that review scores are directly comparable. They're not.

Just because a review score is a number doesn't make it some scientifically-arrived-at quantifiable sum. It's just the gut feeling of one reviewer.

There are a dozen different reviewers at Eurogamer and all the big review sites. Expecting all of their (hugely subjective - 'cos they're human) internal review scales to be calibrated to one another is a special kind of Rainman-like autism.

Review scores aren't maths. They're just a feeling.

I read this headline as an "artillery survival game". That would be horrible, actually.

Came out yesterday, actually!

I find that the touchscreen controls make the gunfights more tractable.

"no mandatory RPG elements, no medal collection, no Werehog"

Can someone more familiar with the Sonic franchise explain why people didn't like those things? Especially the latter one, please.

@chrisdearman That's almost certainly so the announcer can say your team's name in the voice over.

@arcam I read that line more as a description than a criticism.

Great news. 2012 was the year that smartphone & tablet games really came into their own, and 2013 will be even better.

@IvorB I think the lack of foreign accents in the voices is more to do with voice acting being expensive than any willful neglect on Firaxis's part.

Sounds really interesting - but how does the turn-based bit mesh with the massively-multiplayer bit?

I can't get these new-fangled screenshot galleries to work. You click an image and a box pops up that says "Loading...". This box never goes away, even after you click back to the article. The requested image never pops up.

I'm using Chrome on Win7 32, if that helps.
