Regardless of demographics, this game had little chance of being reviewed on all its merits from IGN. It doesn't have expensive production values in the graphics (which is not the same as having "bad" graphics) and generally speaking, can not be played to full enjoyment in a casual, low-investment manner. Mainstream western sites such as IGN generally review games based on how well they appeal to reviewers with little time to play games for enjoyment - only games that wow with the most expensive presentation and buttery, smooth, edge-free play experience excite them.
Doesn't this reflect the majority of western gamers. Why wouldn't games like that score high in a professional reviewers opinion?
They're not raring games games against each other. They are rating games the way they would stack up in in their opinion based on the majorities opinion.
If you're not in agreement with majority and yoy see something different use reviews for the info they provide, not reassurance.
Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
