Soul Sacrifice Review | IGN Italia

IGN Italia: "Soul Sacrifice is a truly excellent game, very playable and accurate in every detail. It inherits from its genre some degree of repetitiveness at times, it is a little slow at the start, but keep playing it to unveil one of the best experiences you can live... not only on a PS Vita." (PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice) 9/10

But IGN here in America told me the game was a 7.7. They even made a video on launch day reminding me (just in case I was mistaken) that Soul Sacrifice is NOT going to be a killer app for the Vita!

While I do believe that re-iterating the fact that IGN (US) did not "love" the game was pretty petty, I think it's up to the reviewer to decide how he/she feels about the game.

I mean it's obvious we all have our preference of types of games, so do reviewers. I do not follow Collin as a reviewer, so I do not know what type of games he likes; or whether we have a common opinion about games.

When I find a reviewer that has similar opinions about games, I tend to give those review significance when trying to figure out if the game is right for me.

Personally, two reviewers that seem to hit it home (more often, than not -- for me) are Sessler and Angry Joe. I take their reviews seriously when considering a game.

So basically, in this wall of text:

tl;dr - find a reviewer w/ similar opinions, and follow his/her reviews. Don't' worry about the rest.

Angry Joe works EXTREMELY hard on his reviews. I'm surprised he hasn't hit 1 million subscribers yet.

IGN Italia has my kind of taste. Really enjoying this game right now.

To be fair, the score IGN gave it is rather spot-on when compared to the overall metacritic score for the game, which, right now, sits at a 76.
Waiting for Giant Bomb's review. One of the only sites whose opinion I actually care to hear.

Ign italia give positive review..
and say the truth about how they feel..
LOGICWINS  +   633d ago
How do you know they're telling the truth about how they feel as opposed to other critics? What evidence do you have to support this?
LOGICWINS  +   633d ago
@Disagrees- God forbid someone on N4G is asked to back up what they write

This is N4G.
There is little room for reasoning. Too much pandering to the masses.

Because IGN openly acknowledged that money plays a factor in their reviews:

And how do we know the same thing doesn't go on with IGN Italia?
FriedGoat  +   633d ago
Because nobody cares about Italy.

I think anything less than 8.5 is a bit strange....it is a very good if flawed game.

Like when people give Halo's, MGS's and others 3's and 4's....doesn't make any sense.

Just because I don't like it doesn't mean it's bad....

Anyway, time to vote with your wallets!

i wonder what colin moriarty thinks about this.. ^_^
to me he doesnt like this kind of genre in gaming,
remember his review in ragnarok odyssey?

I dint like RO so much but freaking loved SS more, so I get Colin's score. RO felt meh(IMO) compared to SS.
Williamson  +   633d ago
If ign(US) gave it a 7.7( which i dont agree with) then thats ok I guess, but to make a vid saying "Why its not Vitas killer app" was a little too much.
belac09  +   633d ago
this game is batshit crazy and truly a great fun new game!!1 it rivals most ps3 games.
DivineAssault  +   632d ago
after i finished chapter one, i seen how much deeper the game gets.. I know its no 6-7 but i dont feel its above a 9 either.. If there was more of an open world with shops, some platforming maybe, & jumping, im sure it would score higher.. A sequel will probably add those things.. Still a great game & im really enjoying it
