And nothing can quite prepare you for "silly season" like a publication's complete disregard for its scoring scale. The staff over at Yahoo have scored Batman: Arkham City a nonsensical 6/5, explaing that the game "improves on the original so much that it feels like gluttony".
Back in 2009, the French edition of PSM3 magazine pulled a similar stunt, awarding Uncharted 2 a 21/20. Sigh. So yep, there's that.
