Meh IGN review = lame.
iamnsuperman  +   1502d ago
If it is anything like there Gears 3 review then it is going to be a bad review. Usually IGN reviews are ok but for some reason ,to me, that one felt like it was written by a child.

I think they're gonna dump on UC3 since most of the journalists there bought into that UC3 vs GeOW 3 bs.

@ Drake

Lol, word. Followed by the "OH! They gave GeOW 3 a 9. UC3 fails" *troll face* comments. I'm buying it regardless of what IGN gives it.

IGN died the day they gave GTA4 a 10/10. Ever since then, it has been pure IGNorance.

IGN will give Uncharted 3 an 8.9/10 guaranteed.
LOGICWINS  +   1502d ago
^^It's not getting an 8.9. IGN only uses .5 intervals now.
Trophywhore  +   1502d ago
IGN gave U2 a 9.5 just so all you anti ign guys know. Id expect at least a 9 from them this time around.
nix  +   1502d ago
@drakesonaplane: yup.. it died for me too. nowadays i just don't take reviews that seriously. i played GTAIV and man.. it was soooo boring. i gave up the game after 33 hours. sad part is, it's the highest rated game at metacritic. almost everyone gave it 10/10.

OT: IGN always asks these stupid questions...
Marceles  +   1502d ago
IGN always has the weirdest scoring

"Graphics 10/10: best game we've ever seen
"Gameplay 10/10: best game we've ever played
"Presentation 10/10: controls and story are second to none"
"Overall: 7.5"

To me GTA4 was a 10 until I started putting more and more hours into it. It might be the reviewer wasn't given enough time to do a complete playthrough.

I have been using IGN since before it was IGN for helpfull reviews and more. Anyone else remember
rumplstilts  +   1502d ago

Was it ignorant when they gave Uncharted 2 Game of the Year?

I think you're the ignorant one.

Besides, when you have a publication with more than 1 reviewer, expecting consistency is folly.
Kingdom Come  +   1502d ago
Gears of War 3 is a 10/10 Game. IGN should have ATLEAST have given it an 9.5, especially considering the fact that they gave the quite disappointing Resistance 3 9.0 also. After playing the bea, I would consider it wrong for Uncharted to score higher than Gears as Gears has both an incredible Singleplayer AND Perfect Multiplayer, Uncharted 3's multiplayer has always been a let down.
kingdavid  +   1501d ago
The thing I hate about IGN is their outlandish claims in their reviews:

"Is it possible to give MGS 4 an 11/10?"

"GTA 4's script is worthy of an oscar"

Not to mention most of their reviews feel written by an 11 year old.

I mean when IGN is one of the most popular gaming websites for reviews, i think its little wonder gaming sometimes isnt taken as seriously as movies and music.

They have a couple people who are really good at reviewing and a couple people who are horrible. It really all depends on which person a game gets for them.
DigitalRaptor  +   1501d ago
@ Kingdom Come
Seriously man?

If Uncharted 3 was a single player game only, it would still receive accolades, because that's where its strengths lie. Uncharted 3 will have a sensational campaign, probably one of the best of all time. Gears 3 won't and can't touch it!

For what it is, Uncharted 3's multiplayer is comprehensively inclusive and great. It has that unique adventure/platforming gameplay and most of all, it's so damn fun! To say this is Naughty Dog's 2nd outing in multiplayer gameplay is bloody amazing! How many multiplayer games have Epic worked on now? 10-15?

Gears 3's multiplayer should be perfect, but it's clearly not, since nothing is. "Perfect" is not a word to use lightly when it comes to judging games!

I bet IGN gives it a 9.5 or maybe even a 10 who knows, if u ppl actually payed attention you would see that ign loves uncharted like the rest of us. Idk what is with all the GTA 4 hate, that game was ridiculously amazing and i personally agree that it deserved a 10/10. Oh and to dude that said its guaranteed to get a 8.9, IGN only works in .5 increments now so that's impossible.

Virus201  +   1502d ago
But if they give Uncharted a 10 you will be like "OMG i love Uncharted. That was a great review!"

I know that Uncharted 3 will have amazing review scores across all gaming sites. But I think people are going to say that they don't like a certain website because you think that Uncharted 3 will get a bad review.

The best thing anyone can do is just buy the game because its will be amazing no matter what.

Will it get a 10/10 like MGS4?
Undeadwolfy  +   1502d ago
IMO MGS4 deserved that 10/10.
Who  +   1502d ago

I love the Uncharted series, but it's not perfect [for me at least]. Great visuals, story-execution, and character developments are there but the gameplay for me - not so much. I agree that MGS4 holds up to it's 10/10 [even today]. I still play MGO regularly in fact.

Where Uncharted lacks [platforming, gunfights], MGS4 makes up for. And before everyone starts knockin', remember this is just my opinion.
Drake117  +   1502d ago
Thats funny u talk about mgs 4 gameplay when i honestly don't remember any of it lol. I remember that game being like atleast 50% cut-scene. Just my opinion lol i'm not the dude that likes to watch my games i like to play them.

Seriously MGS4 was a great game, but sometimes too much of something is just plain bad. Im specifically talking about the looong cutscenes.
Never wanted a fast forward function before that.
ghaleon1980  +   1501d ago
I'm about as big of an MGS fan as you can get but I don't get all of this blind love for MGS4's gameplay... Story wise it was a great game but the game play was definitely was one of it's weaker points if you look at it objectively. Disagree if you want, this is N4G afterall so anything that doesnt put MGS/UC/Sony on a pedestal gets disagrees.
NukaCola  +   1502d ago
Shut up IGN and give your frigging 10/10 already. Quit dangling that you are playing it now and teasing your review. We know where your hiding that 10/10, it's behind that hate you have that wants not to give it. GIVE IT MEOW!
LOGICWINS  +   1502d ago
LOL, they'll probably give it a 9 just to make people like you angry.

What is a person like me? This is the internet, no one knows who anyone really is.
Relientk77  +   1502d ago
I do want to see the IGN review, and other reviews. It doesnt really matter though I already pre-ordered Uncharted 3 so im getting it. I'm just curious what the review scores will be.
BT123  +   1502d ago
LarVanian  +   1502d ago
You know if I was the IGN reviewer, I would be extremely tempted to post a 7.5/10 score just to see the reaction lol......but then of course I would retract it and put up the correct score (which I'm guessing will be a 9.5).

I agree. Its kind of redundant to do a "preview review". Whoever came up with that lame concept, needs to stop it. All they're doing is attempting to stretch the anticipation in an outright annoying fashion.
Fishy Fingers  +   1502d ago
9.5+ OMG IGN are awesome...
9.5- OMG IGN is teh bias...

That's usually the way it plays out.
Tarantino_Life  +   1502d ago
9.5- "OMG ppl stop complaining. Have you played the game"

9.5+ " OMG IGN is biased. Clearly they have sucked up so much to ND that is why they gave the score:Its a linear by the numbers game"

Thats usually the way it plays out.
Apocwhen  +   1502d ago
Yep, pretty much.

Some people are going to tear shreds off of sites who rate it lower than 9.

It'll play out something like this, as it usually does:

1. Site X Sucks anyway, I don't trust their reviews

2. Microsoft paid them off

3. This Site is a joke, they gave <<Insert game title here>> a higher score.
Undeadwolfy  +   1502d ago
Lol you can blame IGN for getting a reputation like that in the first place.

Forza 3 - 9.4
Yada yada yada yada 'Definitive Racing Game of this Generation'

Gran Turismo 5 - 8.5
Forza 3 had nothing on GT5... meh 8.5 will do...

MW2 - 9.4 WTF?
Black Ops - 8.5

Yet they give GREAT games like:

Pixeljunk Shooter 2 - 8.2
Just Cause 2: 8.4

These games should have scored 1.0 higher. They are fantastic.

Virus201  +   1502d ago
But that's the problem. A lot of people are too busy comparing games that have similar play styles. We should look at them as what they are "their own games". Do be mad if one gmed get a higher score than another game than is similar to it. There might have been frame rate issues or other bugs or glitches that might have brought the score down. That I why I prefer to not get into the Uncharted vs Gears, or the Gt5 vs Forza 4 because that to me is a stupid battle that no one will ever win.
Myze  +   1501d ago
I don't think IGN is biased or anything like that, but I do think their writing it bland and uniform. All of their reviews follow a pattern when reading it and there almost seems to be a format sheet they use when writing them. While I doubt that's true, it does seem that way when reading their reviews. To be fair though, there are quite a few sites/magazines that do this, and it just points out a lack of writing skill, or rather, writing ingenuity.

The few reviews the release that are not this way are not all bad. I do sometimes notice inconsistencies in their scoring (not platform specific), which tells me they have opinions on their staff that vary a lot. Honestly, I don't like a site that has massive variations in opinion, because it really makes their reviews seems irrelevant from one game to the other for comparison purposes. (For example, Jim Sterling of Destructoid, his taste in games is so strange at times, I hate their site because of him, and often think he says/scores the way he does simply for hits, kind of like Armond White does with movie reviews.)

If they score it lower than U2 there will be fanboys in tears.

IGN can't really win. They will piss people off no matter what score they give it.
LarVanian  +   1502d ago
I can be a bit of a PS3 fanboy at times, but to be honest I really don't care what score IGN gives Uncharted 3. I will still buy it day one and play the hell out of it.
nycredude  +   1502d ago
IGN can't win cause they are retarded hit whores. I mean 2 articles previewing a review? Are you fucking serious?

They can give it 9.5-10 to 7.5-8.5 it doesn't change the state of IGN, which is sad at best.

I used to go there all the time, even logged in. Now I stay away no matter what.
Crystallis  +   1502d ago

Sums it up pretty nicely, Gametrailers did something similar when reviewing Uncharted 2 "More of the same" yet gave their game of the year to Call Of Duty.

Ha Bobets summed up why most people hate IGN (and most reviewers), they give free passes to some games like CoD but then slam others for not innovating and being too much like the one that came before.

They gave Black Ops an 8.5 and Uncharted 2 a 9.5 and GotY. Enough with this madness already.

I don't know. IGN went easy on Ratchet and Clank all 4 One while others were ready to bury it. Maybe they are not so bad after all and there is hope for them yet. Just a thought. Feel free to disagree
undercovrr  +   1502d ago
great point, Ign gave All 4 One a solid 8. Ign has had a rough patch in about 2009 and early 2010, but I think their reviews have gotten better. People need to stop judging them by their past mistakes.

I LoL hard when I read this guys comment at IGN:

"Uncharted 2 got a 9.5 and while Uncharted 3 is a lot better, it's not 'way' better, so for that reason we're giving Uncharted 3 a lower score than Uncharted 2." - IGN reviewer

Logic like that is absurd and ridiculous.

It shouldn't be though, otherwise every game will get higher til it reaches 10/10 assuming it's a little better than the last. There'll always be improvements but the bar is raised with time so it shouldn't always be a higher score

Well, unless it's just as good, or even worse, then the reviews will/should probably go down.

Uncharted 3 could get 1000 1/10 reviews. I'd still buy it and lick the box in a show of dog style affection.

Perhaps IGN is...
Going over UC3 with 5 fine toothed combs to see what points they can deduct from things that are:

* Given a complete pass on other games
* ADDED bonus features that they don't personally like so much
* Not being anything new or different than Uncharted
* Too much variety (My personal favorite)
* For costing $59.99
* For being an exclusive to PS3

You forgot..

*For actually being better looking than UC2, which got a ton of awards for graphics.

*Containing characters with depth with great dialog, and a story written by the legendary Amy Hennig.

*PS3 has too many exclusives on both Blu-Ray and the PSN, and they can't give every single one of them good scores. That wouldn't be right lol.

This is why N4G is ridiculous...that a website would be able to gain so much heat and traffic for advertising a review that's more than three days away.
Ulf  +   1502d ago
IGN will give the game 9.0, I'm pretty certain. That's the score they give to great titles that don't offer up some amazing new revelation, no matter how well done they are.
