72 = mediocre
76 = generally favourable

4 points roughly three-quarters of the way up a 100 point scale separates 'mediocre' from 'favourable'.

And, as Gamasutra notes, all the scores published pre-release (i.e. those easy to presume to have preferential NDA) had much higher than average scores.

Why I don't pay attention to reviews.

It's actually one point. From 74-75%. (or 75-76, I forget which exactly) Either way, if they're going to give subtext wording to their ratings, they have to draw the line somewhere that mediocre changes to generally favorable. It's not like "Generally favorable" means it's a great game, that's just you misinterpreting the term (not to mention removing the qualifier "Gernerally" in your version of it to try and make your argument sound better.
