"it seems that Nintendo get away with all the cliche points that reviewers make, to justify the down-scoring of games on other platforms (PS MS PC). While Mario is wildly inventive, it suffers massively from repetition, and a somewhat rinse and repeat formula (you literally fight the same bosses several times), and the animations and audio of interactions (speech, cutscenes etc), seem downright lazily done. I feel these points would be made apparent by some reviewers for other platforms - or different franchises for that matter.

It was still one of the best games I have played in years, but I am simply saying that I do not know why Nintendo are not held to the same account as other platforms by reviewers. It seems that games from Nintendo that are nostalgic to the glory days of Nintendo (Mario and Zelda), are automatically given a sense of accomplishment by the reviewer prior to the actual reviewing process of the game. "

This is what I have been saying for a while about Nintendo games and them getting a pass because the reviewers often times bring up their childhood of when they first played Mario or Zelda or are thinking of it. I do not know how a game like Zelda botw got so many perfect scores when it launched with so many frame rate issues and has a lot of pop-ins. Other games for years have been scoring less because of the same issues but because it's a old Nintendo franchise the reviewers just ignores it. I did not talk about the graphics, music or gameplay but things that are easy to see that would cause a game to get lower review scores

I ca not wait for god of war
