Why didn't they just buy a couple of extra reviewers?

I thought that's what game companies did.

That's what the publishers do, and in this case, Zenimax isn't going to buy a few more reviews so they HAVE TO pay out the bonus to Obsidian. More likely in reverse.

If better scores lead to more sales, then Zenimax/Bethesda would stand to profit more from higher scores. Likely far beyond whatever bonus they'd have to pay.
