See this prove Ign is bias

he was on microsofts payroll and they finally caught him

I hope it's not because he gave it a 93 and said, "It's not perfect, with some uneven storytelling and progression here and there, but it's still a fantastic overall package."

Then again, publishers are known to give nice presents to editors who give excellent reviews... and threats of boycott for less than stellar reviews.

What does this mean for the editorial direction

They've been adrift for years. If Greg Miller takes the reigns, the whole place is going to the dogs.

agreed if Miller takes over...I will stop going to IGN the little I go there now...their FF review totally blew it for me. The site used to be great, now its just a media advertisement ho bag

although I can only dream of Shane B. (formerly of 1up) leaving Ignition and taking the job.

Who gives a rat's a**!!!
People should start to open their eyes.
Reviewers EARN money to play FOR FREE, IN ADVANCE, games that we have to WAIT and to PAY a LOT of bucks.

They're lucky, very lucky, and they should only be honest, clear and not biased in their reviews.
Instead they accept moneyhats, and the success of 360 in the US is defnitively to be addressed to the bunch of Editors and Reviewers that started to bash PS3 every single time while glorifying 360.

So this guy has been fired, GOOD!
I'm happy, I would be happier if he had been sent to a farm to shovel feces.

but i agree with almost everything in the ign review for this game except for the story.. the game crashed on 2 separate occasions, and there where some set pieces that should have happened that didn't. overall, it didnt feel as polished as the other games, and that makes me sad. however, the core game is amazing and whoever plays it will jizz in their pants.
