How is this game rated?
How does one get an 8.4 overall from 6+6+8 / 3? Should be a 6.6?
we do not do averages... and on a mmorpg sound and graphics are less important...
partial rankings do not include stuff like being long lasting, and in particular in this one gameplay and multiplayers are pretty the same... I could have put it as multiplay 9 and gameplay 8 but would have not help
maybe we should agree with some site that do not rank games, they just want people to read reviews

Its just a bit misleading is all.
The 6 means the feature is average. So I see two 6's and a leap to an 8 for overall, I think the site is fudging a bit to make the game look better than it is, or adjusting the author's scores.
I would actually prefer if you didn't skip on multiplayer on a MMORPG. Multiplayer is just as important as gameplay if interaction between players is good or bad, difficult or easy.
yes it is misleading.. and it is misleading to summarize a game into 4 ranks. I kept the contacts with the company and not the reviewer, so he could not be influenced anyhow.
and about "multiplayer"... being a mmorpg... that's part of gameplay, not an option, so it should not be ranked without multiplay itself...
anyway consider the gameplay rank as an 8.5 (we round ranks on gameplay/sound/graphics) and the sound and graphics as not bad enough to change the final rank...
again, you're right that it can be misleading
