"Game reviews have a long history in the games industry, and now are a large part of gaming itself. However, there have been many recent changes in game reviews. With these changes one thing is apparent, and that it is time that the review system gets a reboot. There are a lot of changes needed in the review system, however these changes need to come from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo (The Big Three). These console makers need their own console specific rating systems on their networks, similar to Itunes, to solve the problems with the current state of reviews. To be honest, reviews need to be in the hands of the many (GAMERS!) and not the few (IGN, Gamespot and 1UP). Even though sites like Metacritic have tried to alleviate some of the problems with reviews, they have their problems as well. Below, I will detail the problems of the current review system and why a console specific rating system on The Big Three's networks will solve them."
