    I bought scarface the other day and I about 75% done with the game and I have heard nothing but good ratings and I love this game, but gave it a 6.4 and PSM gave it a 5/10

    Why are there such huge differeces in the scores?

    also if you have the game what would you rate it?

    Ether way I would say this game is worth buying.

    Gamespot has a tough rating curve. 6.4 is about average.

    Also keep in mind ratings are based on the opinions of the person reviewing them so ofcourse your going to have varying degrees of scores. Then you also have to remember that they are basing their scores else where. Such as a 5 star game at gamespy (highest rating) may only be a 8 or 9 at gamespot because of the different rating standards and whatnot.

    Yeah if the gamespot guy LOVED scarface the movie and loved controlling him in the game he'd probably give it a 8

    I do not really pay attention to rattings they are stupid. Also if you go watch the video review on Gamespot the whole time he does not say anything really bad about the game.

    >_> Ratings...stupid? I disagree. Ratings give us the reviewer's average thoughts on the game if we don't want to read through (sometimes) loads of text. I sometimes check the ratings of player reviews on GameFAQs so I can get an idea of what people there generaly think about the game.

    I understand that, what I am saying is that I watch and/or read them but, I do not believe the score rating. I listen to what the reviewer has to say about it and if the game sounds good to me I get it. Scarface is better then Vice City IMO, yes the story could have been better but still a must own. Now if you listen to Gamespot you may not want to buy the game.

    That's why I search for more than one review, from review websites, to general player reviews. That way I get a range of scores to go by. I also try finding a demo first, or if that fails I rent the game.

    yeah and is it like a GTA-ish game? I've watched the commercial and it reminds me of GTA Vice City.
