Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Review - IGN

The open world gameplay of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is a brilliant direction for the future of the franchise, but this promising shift is dramatically let down by the numerous ways in which Scarlet and Violet feel deeply unfinished.

You know its bad when IGN gives a Nintendo exclusive a low score.

The sad part is that this is the worst reviewed Pokemon game and probably at the same time the best selling one week in, 10 million plus copies in between the 2, just sad how this little an effort gets recompensated this way.

Its beyond time Nintendo releases a Switch Pro or a Switch 2. Im spoiled after using the Steam Deck.

Oh wow. How did they give the game to reviewers in that state?

IGN suddenly has standards now? Better late than never, but in reality they'll be back to giving Cyberpunk level launches 8's in no time.

Wait did the bugs and glitches ACTUALLY effect an IGN review? You can't be serious lol

There's a reason they posted this so late. The review doesn't have as much impact now.

Exactly, they get the best of both worlds, release an "honest" review while at the same time not affecting first week, couple of weeks sales in any way, this keeps Nintendo and Game Freak happy.

Honestly when this game launched I hardly saw a review on this site and others

When a game usually launches the reviews flood in but Pokemon have started to slowly creep in where they go unnoticed

It’s crazy

The same happened to Sword and Shield

Nintendo is super sketchy.
i did review of a 1st party game once and i had to change my score because of the perks you get if you score them higher. not even kidding.
