In some games, card X gets good performance, in other games same card gets poor performance. That's just they way it is. Varying FPS is normal, so how can you say that differences between MP and 3DMark are "ungamelike"?
the point is that while they could be games, they aren't games. as has already been pointed out, even the Max Payne game test in 3dmark2001 didn't reflect real world Max Payne performance. so it's obvious that either the engines being used are not
indicative of games, or the scenes being portrayed are not examples of real world games. either way something should be done to rectify this.
