Is IGN a reliable place to view reviews? I was looking at NSMB 2 and they gave it such a mediocre score. I just don't understand how people say these people are paid by the companies to give them a positive review when often enough they don't give them a positive review.

I wouldn't rely on just a single source if your looking for reviews on a game. Different people have different opinions on different games, so check out multiple sites and see what they all say.

IGN is alright. I used to visit the site when it first started up, but as the editors who I liked left the site so did I.

What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole... wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? Heck, I'm not even mad; that's amazing.

No offense, but since when is 8.5/10 a mediocre score?

Seriously. We're in a world where 7 is considered shovelware by some people. Damn gamers, man!

They gave Shinobi a 7.5/10. That is not a bad review, not even in the world of idiotic video game scores.

What I would like to know is ...

What makes the WiiU version so much better than the 360 & PS3 versions?

Ninja Gaiden 3: 3/10
Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge: 7.6/10

O_o
