ZombiU Receives a 7, 8, another 8, 8.4, 8.8, 9, 9.2, and a 9.7

IGN has different teams; A Nintendo team (Audrey Drake, Rich George and Sam Claiborn), a Sony team (Gregg Miller, Colin Moriarty, Ryan Clements).

The Nintendo team are Nintendo fanboys, and the Sony team are Sony fanboys, hence Audrey Drake overrating KH: DDD and Gregg Miller overrating Uncharted 3.

With the WiiU launch the Nintendo team has too many games to review, so the Sony and MS teams get roped in. In this case we have a Sony fanboy (Gregg Miller) reviewing a WiiU exclusive. It's just how IGN works. I actually find their reviews very informative, and even if they're a bit off, if you read the words you should find some good info on the game. So ignore the score, but pay attention to the details, he probably makes some good critical points. Gregg Miller is a good writer, and maybe he has good reasons for disliking the game (games can be divisive), but bear in mind that he, like all IGN writers, has his own bias.

This. I also omitted them because there are 50 other topics about the below average reviews already. Nobody is seeing these good ones.


This!

So, eight good or better reviews, but the bad one and "okay" one are the only legit ones.

Makes sense.

Can't spell 'ignore IGN' without IGN.


If they gave it a 9 I believe this post wouldnt exist. But since they think it sucks, they're ignorant. How convenient. As soon as they give a great score to a game you're excited about you'll flip flop right back on their side again.

9.7? Really? That's almost a perfect score. I want to read that review.

Gamespot also gave Monster Hunter a 4.2 on PS2 when it initially released. You know, that game that went on to sell millions and single handedly keep the PSP alive for Sony.


I'll never understand the love people have for that series. I played a handful of them and they're all terrible.

Yes, and the moment they post a good score for a game you don't like you'll be casting the review aside as if it were nothing.
