Their scores are 3.5/5 so that’s equivalent to 7/10 =P

Those are 3.5/5, not out of 10, so they are fairly positive.

You know, I was a little iffy about the game for a bit, but it seems like it’s getting really positive reviews. I think I actually might give this game a try.

I don’t see how it could possibly get good reviews when it’s just the same thing we already played TWICE just with a stupid coin gimmick thrown in. Well seeing how Call of Duty seems to get fair reviews and it’s the exact same crapfest over and over reviewers must not know what originality is anymore. -_-

I don’t really think you can judge a game like that without playing it first, it might be a completely different game then what you think it is.

A game doesn’t have to be completely original to be good, and it’s a new game anyway, with new levels and elements, even looking with past games FROM ITS SERIES.
