I have nitpicks with games I give 10s, to be honest. I see how that's weird but I think scales are more understandable if you get familiar the reviewer's material.
Actually, I'm surprised at such a high score. It kind of implies near perfection — unless you use a strong rating curve.
I don't suppose you'd give a subset of scores on different aspects, such as combat, non-combat mechanics, story, etc.?
I also take issue with the materia system not being "elegant". It's not on the same level as FF's various job systems, but it is a pleasure to use. Would you say the inelegance is due to its huge range of possible configurations?
Good review, though. It is true that humor is a major component in the game: it helps to ground the characters, make them appealing (including certain villains), and also, by its mere existence, enhances the dramatic scenes when they do appear. It seems like a lot of the fans (not to mention the creators of the Compilation of FFVII) just focus on the drama, though
