Gamespot could change Lost Odyssey score

Friday, 15th February 2008 10:21 GMT By Patrick Garratt

According to this, Gamespot may change the score on its Lost Odyssey review because load times in the retail version may differ from those in the review code the site was given by Microsoft.

“We will be purchasing retail copies of Lost Odyssey this morning at our local EBGames,” said the game’s reviewer on the site. “I plan on replaying a good portion of the game this weekend and into next week to determine how great the differences are.”

“Possibly,” he said, on the subject of whether or not the review could be changed. “What happens now is based entirely on whether these improvements exist, and how drastic they are. If there are differences, the text of the review will likely be altered, and the editor’s note will be adjusted to reflect that. The score is a different matter, simply due to the rigidness of our .5-based system. I do not know whether or not these differences can turn a ‘very good game’ into a ‘great game’ based on loading times. As soon as we have invetigated the issue and have made an office-wide decision, I’ll let you know.”

    “Also, we’re waiting to see how much advertising Microsoft threatens to pull”, he possibly added.
