If you really look at them, practically EVERY popular triple A game has top scores with little to no explanation on the "why." If this is not already apparent with the newest games, then ultimately, you must not care about the game's actual content. This is not to say that they MIGHT be good, and no one is saying these games can't be enjoyable, but a game isn't "Great" or a "Masterpiece" because it's just been released or "everyone loves it." Even Undertale was rated "10 a Masterpiece" and if you've played it or even watched it, you might understand why this is an overblown exaggeration of the experience itself. Ultimately, I would use it as a tool to help compare with other opinions on the media as well (good and bad, if you aren't doing that already).
tl;dr Please be wary of bias =]
Back in the day, IGN was one of the good video game review sites, but now, it's nothing more than a joke. The reviews these days are horrible, as IGN will give good ratings to Call Of Duty games while any game involving Sonic The Hedgehog gets a bad review. One Kirby game got a low score because of the complaint about the campaign being short (which is kind of expected from a Kirby game). This is not a site for those looking for honest reviews.
Their score system is just simply bad. Every second game gets 9/10, even the mediocre ones. I read their articles from time to time but nothing more.
I like IGN they keep me posted on every new games being released and best rated games from low to top. i receive news from them monthly on games to preorder. and great deals that would be releasing. IGN its pretty good well actually better than GameInformer
I don't always agree with the score, but it's always well presented, and the comics section is cool too : )
i love this game bcz i love this game and i am again playing games ^_)^ and others not a good best i love this game
The best place to get news over great games new or old, even systems.. it has the new updates of any upcoming game for this year or the upcoming year this is where i get all my news over new games coming for any console.. i receive all kinds of emails over anything that has to do with gaming & their gaming company, good ratings for bad & good games old or new, thanks IGN for your Great Service
Really Amazing Website. You can get each and every information about the Virtual Reality on this website. A Full bank of Virtual Reality.
This site makes it obvious that they trade early access for good reviews. They will rate the worst bull$#*! a 8/10, just to keep the money flowing.
Bad, untrustworthy, hyping games that are crap... this site is all that is awful and sad about the games industry.
IGN Scale goes from 6/10 = utter garbage and game dev that cannot help us get money to 9/10 average to 10/10 good. This site is literally a scam in that regard.
I have spent a lot of money on $#*! games based on reviews from this site.
this is one of the best gaming sites my kids and have ever been on. you find it very easy, also game details are very easy to follow. i really like the site and tell all my kids friends about it
IGN is one of the most well known video game review sites in America, and across the Globe. This is the unfortunate fact for any gamer that is not that knowledgable in the field of video games, for they would be fooled by every review posted by IGN. They recommend games that reek of cancer and 12 year old squeakers, such as any modern Call Of Duty game. There are not enough memes in the world to cure some of the reviews I have had to read on IGN. The fact that they give reviews like 8/10s and above to games that are simply copies of the past year with slightly better graphics. 7.8/10 on Pokemon ORAS for too much water???? How much worse can you get at reviewing a game that was just fine? If you have the money of the Triple A companies, enough email accounts and determination, you will be able to stick your hand up IGN's butt and make them your puppet. They will say anything for COD games for the right price, such as giving it a higher rating them games that have actual decent storylines. 9/11 was an inside job, and every day we stray further from God's light. Thanks.
Pretty much the title. IGN has been there for ever. Every information the gamer needs can be found here
Been here for so long and this is my website for gaming. Reading a current update for star trek.
There was a thing - Battlefield 3 came out - IGN said "It's a COD killer". Couple months later another Call of Duty game came out (I dont even remember which because there are too many of those). Guess what IGN said then? "COD is so great omg ololol..."
How can you trust some sellout like that?
Best Video Games reviews site we can find Video games trailer and latest each and every news at this site.
Best site for Games news and reviews. No Complaints, I love IGN`
Pretty decent games, pretty decent prices and the shipping speed is decent also their selection of games are nice
All I see on the site is about movies and TV shows I'm not even interested in those, not much about games. I would look elsewhere if you want gaming content.
This Site should never be trusted. They have worse censorship than the Chinese. The people who run the boards are nasty people.
Resistance: Burning Skies, I bought this game because I wanted a fully featured, dual analog, portable shooter. That is not what I got. This game is not bad, but it is not truly good either.
The campaign is fine. It gets the job done. It doesn't excel at story or voice acting, but it doesn't bug you either. To put it simply, it drives you through the game, but you never actually care about it. The levels are decently set up. The enviroments are varried.
The gameplay is decent, if not a little generic. Nothing you havent seen before.
The weapons have a decent variety, although there aren't that many of them. And they will be given to you as you need the throughout the game.
I love this website. When it comes to certain games like the Grand Theft Auto series, I sometimes like to start a separate games and use cheats just to mess around. This website has tons of cheats available, even for some of the more obscure games. It's quick and easy to find what you're looking for.
Even though IGN is a good service, some of the reviews on the site is somewhat lacking. Mostly of the reviews on IGN is really good and well written. I have my doubts. IGN also has a YouTube Channel that has very good content, and has some partnered channels that have good content.
