LB:EF - *snicker* EF's ratings vs. Golden Compass game's ratings

This is a rundown of the ratings various game reviewers gave LB:EF.
UGO - B+
Game Vortex - 80 out of 100
GameShark - C+
Just Adventure - C+
Ace Gamez - 6 out of 10
IGN - 5.9 out of 10
Gaming Age - D
The Onion - D
Wham Gaming - 4.5 out of 10
Game Chronicles - 4 out of 10
X-Play - 2 out of 5
GameSpy - 2 out of 5
PC Gamer UK - 37 out of 100
PC Gamer - 37 out of 100
GameSpot - 3.4 out of 10
GotNext - 1.5 out of 5
Worth Playing - 3 out of 10
PC Zone UK - 19 out of 100
Computer Games Mag - 0.5 out of 5
Game Revolution - F

Quite a spread. Of course, if one clicks on the links to read the lower reviews in full, it becomes painfully obvious that the reviewers were more concerned with their personal distaste hatred of evangelical Christianity than the actual gameplay. Some even seem to have gotten most of their information about the game not from actually playing it, but by listening to the lies spread about the game.

So anyway, now along comes a game based upon the Golden Compass novel and movie. Let's take a look at the ratings it received:
For PC:
Game Revolution - F

For PS2:
IGN - 3.5 out of 10
Gamer 2.0 - 4.2 out of 10
Playstation 2 Mag UK(OPM UK) - 6 out of 10

For PS3:
IGN - 3.5 out of 10
Game Informer - 3.25 out of 10
Game Revolution - F
Cheat Code Central - 3 out of 5
Gamer 2.0 - 4.2 out of 10
Play Magazine - 4.5 out of 10
PlayStation: Official Mag (US) - 2 out of 5

For the XBox 360:
IGN - 3.5 out of 10
Game Informer - 3.25 out of 10
Official Xbox Magazine - 6 out of 10
Game Revolution - F
GameZone - 3.2 out of 10
TeamXbox - 3 out of 10
Eurogamer - 3 out of 10
Cheat Code Central - 3 out of 5
1UP - 4 out of 10
Gamer 2.0 - 4.2 out of 10

And so on and so forth. The reviews for each game from Game Revolution fascinated me. Despite giving LB:EF an F rating, they still counted the re-creation of New York City and the soundtrack as positives. They found nothing positive about the Golden Compass game.

And unlike LB:EF, you have to kill in the Golden Compass game to win. But since the Golden Compass is based on atheism and not evangelical Christianity, you won't hear a peep of condemnation about it.

And as far as mission 20 of LB:EF goes, I'm getting closer to successfully completing it. Kevin Hoekman emailed me some tips to help.
