IGN pros and cons:

+Deep and satisfying strategy RPG gameplay
+Highly customizable experience
+Lovable and memorable characters
+Beautiful and varied visual style
+Perfect for new and old Fire Emblem fans alike

There are no cons


Yeah and also got robbed of a 10/10 by IGN.

No cons or negative points in the written review should automatically equal a 10. Their site has fallen so badly the last 5 years.

IGN: you can't spell, you know.....

but hey, the next time they give a Nintendo game a "low" score, you'll all go back to hating them again

Nintendo Life: gee, I wonder why they'd rate a Nintendo game so highly.....


Ugh, don't be that guy.


Endgame is always that guy. It's his thing.

It's rather adorable, really.


While Endgame can be that guy, you have to admit, this is a pretty accurate assessment. It's not just Nintendo fans, I've seen it on all the boards, but it happens every time. If a review is good, fans love it. If a game gets a 4 or 5 out of 10, the review is biased or bad or flawed, etc. If it had gotten a 2, we would have threads all over about how IGN is terrible and doesn't know what they're talking about.

That said, I am looking forward to this game. I can't wait until it gets in here!

You can never have a thread praising a game, without Endgame coming in and ruining the vibe.

Probably the silly 'lack of feet' complaint. Has IGN ever bestowed a 10/10 before?

While that's true, coming from him it's pretty hilarious. If the game had gotten a low score from IGN, he'd be all over it.

The score is indicative of the reviewers over all feeling about the game I think.

Uncharted 2 is the first 10/10 that pops in my head from them.

So would the fanboys. So your post is valid on what basis exactly?

I think Skyward Sword did as well, and Mario Galaxy 2
