Let me tell you a story. I go to the IGN site. I see all these advertisments and banners all over the place for Gears of War Judgment. I wonder hmmmmmmmm maybe IGN was bought off by Microsoft to give the new Gears game a great score (higher than the excellent game that is Tomb Raider).

I proceed to the review and find: 9.2/10

Now look at this trend below:

9.2 ign...............

Metascore on first day: 80

6/10 ---- giant bomb
6/10 ----digital spy
7/10 ---- gamereactor
7/10 videogamer
7/10 ---- Gamesbeat
7/10 ---- digital trends
7/10 ---- sixthaxis
8/10 ---- eurogamer
8/10 ---- escapist
8/10 ---- Official xbox magazine
8/10 ---- EGM
8.1/10 ---- Gametrailers
8.5/10 ---- StrategyInformer
8.8/10 ---- nzgamer
9/10 ---- destructoid
9/10 ---- joystiq


Yep good old trustworthy IGN!

It's better than their Mario Galaxy review. I would've scored that game a 7 honestly, there's nothing really "wow" about it. It just doesn't have any glitches.

Excellent game that is Tomb Raider?....

Mario Galaxy doesn't have "wow" factor and a 7?....

This is the twilight zone

Mario Galaxy was incredible. No idea what you're talking about.

I didn't like Tomb Raider, but I still think it's excellent simply because it does a lot of things right that most action games don't.

And yeah Mario galaxy is truly worthy of it's reviews.

Pfft step off. Mario Galaxy was boring as hell. Jak and Daxter kicks Mario Galaxy's ass out of this orbit, and Banjo Nuts and Bolts kicks it right off a cliff. Also that gimmicky rotating "ball" mode is exactly as Adam Sessler calls it, rehashed manure.

I respect your opinion and that of Mr. Sessler's. Just know you are in a tiny little minority.

Not at IGN....There's a lot more people there who would have voted Galaxy an 8. That was a paid/padded review too.

IGN is full of microsoft and sony fanboys, many of which hate everything Nintendo.

Also, fyi mario galaxy score highly everywhere and most people that have played it really like it.

Mitch Dyer (IGN reviewer):

"Halfway through, I realized this is the best third-person shooter around. By the end, it's clear that itís paving a path other developers could (and hopefully will) follow."

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahha........

wow
