There's something that seems a little suspicious to me going on with metacritic. They have 28 or so reviews catalogued (with blurbs and links to them), but only two of them are actually scored. One has a 50, one a 70, and the rest are essentially pending to be awarded a score.

Usually metacritic adds the score as it adds the review, so having 20+ reviews that haven't added their score to the metarating is something I haven't seen before.

It makes me wonder if Sony paid them to deliberately wait on declaring/adding up the scores so that the game would be stuck in unscored (minimum 4 reviews) rather than posting a metacritic rating. Otherwise what's the hold up?
