Thats the thing with these reviews, htey cant be trusted. some say one thing while users say another

Because we all know professional reviewers are totally w/o bias, corruption and blatant trolling.

I can only trust my opinion. When I played oblivion I got bored 5 hours in, but it's still a great game none the less. I found Crysis fun but I stopped half way though the game because of respawning enemies, that alone should have taken away a point off the score

A site that does game reviews doesn't want people to take user reviews seriously. Who would have guessed!!!

In most cases I find an average of user reviews to be better than the so called "professional reviewers".

Perfect review from IGN:

Pac-man, seriously?! I have no doubt it's a good game but does is really deserve a better rating than Shadow of the Colossus, BioShock, Fallout 3, Mass Effect 2, every Halo game, Portal 2, Batman: Arkham City, Skyrim, Deus Ex, Baldur's Gate, Half-Life 2, etc. etc.
