IGN isn't biased, IGN UK on the other hand...

Also not biased- but I find I often disagree with them a LOT more than the USA crew.

Okay.

The most recent example is in their Launch Line-up video from just today where they were going through a few of the launch games, they said Mario is boring and not worth it in single player but comes alive in multiplayer. To me, that shows that none of IGN UK's Nintendo people know how to play a Mario game properly. Any of the Mario games will probably be boring if all you do is run to the goal. Multiplayer, while fun, is probably the LAST way you'd want to play Mario if you're actually trying to explore and find everything.

No, their opinion differed and they found the same-old single player experience boring, but the multiplayer fun.

True, multiplayer is fun, but chaotic. Don't expect to do anything useful when on it. When in singleplayer, you can explore, get Star Coins, and Speedrun.

But it is the Reviewers opinion. So don't take it to heart.

IGN isn't biased, it's corrupted.

There were other, older examples that I can't quite remember. Again, I'm not saying they're bias, just that we don't seem to come to the same conclusions. I actually do tend to agree with the IGN US team most of the time. It's good to have such a well rounded staff with varying opinions. All I'm saying is, the UK bunch seem off to me.

I'd say that's fair enough. Mario, especially the NSMB games are proper boring in single player. At least they become a bit more fun with a friend or two.

But then again, I'm from the UK...
