Review Incongruity (Gaming)

The language of Halo Infinite reviews does not seem to match the scores.

Right now on Metacritic it's got 86. Seems good, until you realize Halo 5 has 84, and Halo 4 scored even higher at 87.

When reviews are talking about it being a second coming, as being the Halo that was always in your imagination, as being close to perfection, is this any more indication that Metacritic numbers are meaningless?

You're not accounting for inflation. An 86 now is like a 105 back then.
