FAQ: Why don't you give a number score?

I don't give a score to the games I review because the technical mistakes that might detract from a game's score in a critic's review might not necessarily detract from your enjoyment of the game. I aim to inform the reader about the game in as many ways as possible and I don't feel that a number score would contribute to that aim. I trust my readers to decide whether the pros and cons that I list in my reviews are things that matter to them personally.
