So how bad do you think the IGN review will be?

GameTrailers is usually nasty towards Pokémon games, more than IGN that's for sure.
This is the internet, all opinions are considered invalid.

7.5 isn't bad as a review, but it's going to hurt sales.

Casuals don't wait for some "reviews" to convince them.

I expect a 8.5 or 9 at most.

7.5 is bad, how?

If I were in charge of a Game and it would get scored like that or similarly, I'd be happy.

Realistic version: if I was in charge of a multimillion dollar franchise guaranteed to sell regardless of whatever arbitrary number IGN attached to it, I'd be happy.

Despite 7.5 being "good" on the scale, a lot of gamers have this "nothing but the best" ideal where they won't even consider anything less than a 9. 7.5 isn't bad as a review, but it's going to hurt sales.

DIsagree about the sales. It's Pokemon we're talking about.

They gave GTA5 a 10 and named it "one of the best video games ever" so it's not like their standards are that high. This should get a 7 at least...
