IGN reviews Instinct: 1.7 out of 10

Worst Game of the Year?

"The bullet points inside the front flap of Instinct's retail box convey notions of game features and such with a particularly heinous level of dishonesty. Therefore, the majority of this review will focus on refuting the fallacious blurbs while explaining why playing this first-person shooter is comparable to yanking back on a hangnail.

. . .

Unless you desperately need a reminder of how unfulfilling a game experience can be, don't touch this one."

Presentation: 1.5
Graphics: 2.0
Sound: 3.0
Gameplay: 2.0
Lasting Appeal: 0.5

Overall: 1.7 out of 10 - Abysmal

Can't be the worst game of the year...

(out of 10 / not an average

Both are PC games, I notice.

PC games (outside MMOs) are getting fewer and fewer, and sh1ttier and sh1ttier.

MK_Red4069d ago

Good find LostProphet and good point The_Round_Peg. Some of PC games of late have been really terrible.

The scary thing is that "Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars" is coming for Wii with worse graphics (If its possible) and terrible controls!

Sorry to burst your bubble, Warhawk is awesome. Besides one or two scores, Lair's reviews have been looking a lot better as well.

MK_Red4069d ago

Wow, looks like some one is so lifeless that has made a clone of my account posting trash and flaming! lol at post 1.3

MK_Red has a fanboy!! Well dude on the brightside, they say imitation is the highest form of flattery.

Can't wait till I get my first fanboy, Congrats you are a legend. It's official. lol XD

Looks like whoever it is has 5 accounts too. Which would explain your 5 disagrees and his 5 agrees. So sad it's funny.

MK_Red4069d ago

Thanks, Syko 360. Good one :)

I thought that was a little unlike you haha.

You like everything! :P

There is one thing I really don't like and actually hate:

Rooted_Dust4069d ago (Edited 4069d ago )

Why are you using this to attack PC gaming? It's stupid. Anyone can develop a game and release a game on PC. The fact is that it is just easier to release crap like this on the PC platform. Does a game like this hurt PC gaming? Absolutley not. This game is in no way an example of the quality of games from leading 3rd party developers. When you've got games like Crysis, Half Life Episode 2, Hellgate London, Spore, Starcraft II, Warhammer Online, Guildwars 2, Age of Conan, Company of Heroes, Fallout 3, Fallout Online, and World in Conflict who cares about some crappy game a bunch of idiots made in their basement.

MK_Red4069d ago

We are not attacking PC. There are some really bad games coming for PC but also some really good ones.
And my favorite is among them: Fallout 3 (My Avatar)

You shouldn't forget 360's extremely low ratings lately, like Blue Dragon with 6.5 and Two worlds with barely a 7.

ktchong4069d ago

You would be getting BioShock (with an average review score of 97%) and Madden NFL 08 (average score: 87%)

Also, according to MetaCritic, Blue Dragon's average review score is 79% ... that's actually higher than Lair's average score of 68%

BTW, MetaCritic does not review games itself. It just takes all the review scores from all the well-known reviewers like IGN, GameSpot, GameSpy, GamePro, Game Informer, EGM, EuroGamer, 1UP, Yahoo! Games, G4, GameTrailers, etc., etc., all the best and most respected reviewers, and average their scores to give you an objective consensus.

aaquib just got owned...

In the ass.

MK_Red4069d ago

Wow, that "Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars" (Biggest candidate for WGOTY) has better Presentation and more Lasting Appeal!

These games are indeed among the worst. How dishonest can game features behind the box be. ""Witness vivid imagery so intense and realistic that you'll find yourself wrapped up in it - until you're sucked right into the next firefight."

This one seriously made me laugh:
"Voices throughout Instinct are in the original Russian in an effort to showcase their culture and to maintain the true feel of the game."
They were so lazy that did not record English voices and are calling it a great feature to find about Russian culture in an underground base with zombies!

Loopy4069d ago

This is called Marketing.
Which of course its main goal is to sell the game.
A good seller can make you buy dog crap as the must have food. :D

Time Lord4069d ago

Hope the developers don't visit IGN any time
