Anywho... I wonder what IGN gave this game when it was on the PS2 eyetoy?!?! Hmmmm..

@cold... oh my. Your a smart one;)

Cold 20003649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

Why would they give it the same score when its not the same game ?

Troll fail.

edit: go play some Move exclusives, I heard they be bangin'

TheBlackSmoke3649d ago

Why dont you go play fable 3? I heard it has a lower meta than modnation racers, oh and while your at it.. actually go and buy Alan Wake.

Hades13373649d ago

Yeah cause I remember being able to play that game online...

DMason3649d ago

To be honest, I thought the review would be much worse. Not bad for a Kinect launch title I guess.

IGN Uk lol. lets wait for a few reviews first and then check the averages

below: while i didn't expect lights out to get high scores, i knew it would get low scores from an American IGN

despair3649d ago

its actually IGN US but on the UK version of the site. You usually see the UK in parenthesis next to the reviewer's name I believe.

gigaware3649d ago

Most of the games will average the same or a bit higher then PS move games. I expect a couple of kinect games to have a 90% average. It's hard to tell what will happen though everybody and their mama in the pro Sony world with a pro Sony agenda will be trying to throw the reviews.

White-Sharingan3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

" I expect a couple of kinect games to have a 90% average" wanna bet on that? what is the meaning of "a couple"? more than 3? 4? 5? I bet that kinect wont get 5 launch titles with 90%+, If I lose, I leave N4g; if you lose, you leave N4g? :)

EDIT: My definition of launch title = same day/week of kinect release. I'm pointing it out cause there is a difference between launch title and a title released at launch "window" (where it's a few months between the hardware release)

On topic: Good score, I love sonic, and I'll pick this up whenever kinect sells for $70 or so.

Masamori Sumimura3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

I see alot of you guys above me getting disagrees. I guess they come from people who are still mad that the PS3 fighting game on Move scored a 3.5/10.

oh welp. Can't please everybody.

rekof3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

especially IGN,..
They are as credible and well balanced team as shit,.. Sometimes hard to listen to gamescoop all the Ms ass-licking goes there with their main editors,..

It's painful for me to say that PS3 team is most unbiased,.. though they are stupid as shit in their reviews sometimes,.

Light Yagami3649d ago

Oh, but they were credible when they gave MGS4 a 10/10 right? You PS3 guys are just butt-hurt and in denial.

fooltheman3649d ago

If it's quality it deserves a good point...

Hades13373649d ago

Everyone seems to have a reason for a website having no credibility nowadays, if you don't like them then why are you here commenting?

ryuzu3649d ago

More likely they're disagrees from people who aren't middle aged women who watch chat shows - that's Kinect's audience after all.

Don't break a nail replying!


nycredude3649d ago

This score is the same as the metacritic for MOH. So is this game as good as MOH? Come on people IGN reviews are useless at this point they are so inconsistent they might as well be a paid blog site.

OSU_Gamer3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

Not only is MOH a completely different game and genre.....
MOH was a dissapointment, so saying that Sonic is as good as another game that is dissapointing isn't so hard to beleive.

NOt only have you not played the Sonic Kinect game, you are also trying to say that any Kinect game like this is in no way as good as MOH

Doesn't make sense broskie.


You can also look at the ign review of Sports Champion....its got a 7.5 too. So by your logic, that is in no way possible because there is no way a game like that could be better than MOH.

Everyone will hate on IGN when they think that they are giving too good of reviews for 360 games, but nothing is said when they give great reviews(deserved or undeserved) to PS3 games.

How about a reply from those 4+ people disagreeing?

k-Lan3649d ago

WOW! Good job making yourself look like an idiot nycredude. MOH and SONIC are both shooters people! OMFG!!!

JonnyBigBoss3649d ago

Totally off-topic. Way to be a fanboy.

k-Lan3649d ago

btw.. what exactly is on-topic about your post fanboy?

The only thing thats concerning about things like this sonic review is how is it any different from kung fu rider?

lean left and right to steer collect bonuses perform tricks.
sonic has an online element kung fu rider is £20 odd quid.

technically they work differently, but the outcome is pretty similar.

not bashing either one just saying play em both and giving them wildly different scores takes away from your credibility.

I have no doubt about sonic being a decent launch title for kinect its just IGNs credibility is really heading for total worthlessness.

Masamori Sumimura3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

Key phrase from your reply :

''technically they work differently, but the outcome is pretty similar.''

Maybe techincally one actually works and the other doesnt or maybe techincally one of them is actually more fun then the other?

I think we should stop doing comparison between games.

Denethor_II3649d ago

Are you surprised? Every Kinect game will have great great reviews.

OSU_Gamer3649d ago

This isnt a great review... its average

Light Yagami3649d ago

Still better than The Fight.

BeaArthur3649d ago

So your speculating on the score of a game you haven't played? All your comment proves is that you are incapable of taking off your fanboy glasses. Who the f*ck cares. Sonic is shovelware just like Kung Fu Rider is shovelware, neither game is going to break sales records or make anyone pick up a Move or Kinect. It's pathetic that you are crying foul on a review for a game like this. A new low in fanboy history. Stop whining about bias because your angry that MS' crappy launch title scored higher than Sony's crappy launch title.
