Jeff didn't get the message before so here I am to say I think an Official magazine is the most biased thing ever. Say for example you take the most hard-core Zelda fan of all time who gives every game with the title Zelda a 10/10. Now he gets hired by Nintendo and is paid to say how good the games are. He instantly changes all his scores to 11/10. Here's some scores that hopefully prove my point.
Pilot Wings Resort
IGN's Score:7
Nintendo power's Score:8

Fire Emblem: Radian Dawn
IGN's Score:8
Nintendo Power's Score:9.5

Pokemon Ranger: Shadow's of Almia
IGN Score: 6.7
Nintendo Power's Score:8

I could go on and on but I think you get it.

Reviews are mainly opinions. If a particular person really liked a game, they'll give it a good review.

But if the review of a game not from that company is good they'll send a second person to get a worse review to publish.
I feel bad for the game makers though. If ONE person doesn't like it, they put it in their magazine and no one who reads it buys it, even if it happens to cure cancer, pollution or AIDS.

I think, tetris, even if you don't particularly like a game you can give your real opinion and rating if your in a more independent place like websites. but if Nintendo is the one writing out your pay check then most likely you'll swallow your pride and give the game a better score, and if your rating is a little too opinionated and you give the game a little too high a score then you know your getting a bonus.
