Amiga Power

Amiga Power NEVER gave any game 0%. You are probably thinking of their review of Final Gate CD32, which got 20% in May 1996.

Okay, forgive me for being anal here, but:

Of the 1463 percentage scores awarded by Amiga Power, the number of games from:

01-09% = 39
10-19% = 55
20-29% = 67
30-39% = 85
40-49% = 89
50-59% = 181
60-69% = 229
70-79% = 263
80-89% = 354
90-96% = 101

The average score was 63.53%. No game was awarded 0, 97, 98, 99 or 100%.

I hardly think that the above results show Amiga Power to be excessively harsh.

Of course, one can prove anything with statistics, and this is just a numerical analysis. Reviews are supposed to be read and by reading old issues, you will usually find that there were good reasons for giving low marks to games.

"They really slagged of games." could also be seen as constructive criticism and not misusing the percentage system by giving everything above 60%!
