If you look at the new Games for Windows mag (Jeff Green, who wrote the review and fell on his sword over the retracted one by Matt Peckham, is editor of GfW), you see a description of their scoring policy basically saying 'old system was 7-9, 7 was average, below that was crap' and 'new system is really 0 - 10, but now 5 is truly average'. And they do keep to that for at least a few reviews.
The problem is that if you look in the Mag and on their Site, they are applying this *very* inconsistently, meaning that NWN *is* getting screwed compared to some other games being reviewed right now.
