Despite "Dreamfall" (8.1), "Sam & Max Culture Shock" (7.7), the others in Gamespy's list didn't have good score: 5.8 for "Paradise", 6.8 for "Evidence: The Last Ritual", 5.2 for "Keepsake". So how could those game be nominated for "best Adventure Game of the year"? Only 3 adventure games have an above-7 score in 2006 [Dreamfall, Sam & Max, Ankh(7.3)].
I do not know what exactly theese guys are looking for when they review an adventuregame. I mean, Ankh have great graphics, great voiceacting, a very fun story, is glitchfree unlike Keepsake and finally deliver just about everything a modern game should deliver, so "7.3"? What were they reviewing exactly? WASD movement?
