    Why do people insist on listening to IGN reviews? That's like trusting a movie review from your dog.

    IGN receives incentives from game publishers to write positive reviews of their games about to be released. Game publishers also control what future games they provide to reviewers based on previous work.

    It's like asking the car sales person to give you an independent review of a vehicle in their store, whom also receives a hefty commission and paycheck from their employer for each car they roll out the door. :rolleyes: :lol:

    You can scratch videoezy off that list. They'll be out of stock day 0 and backorder for 3 months.

    There are always idiots who review a game waaaaay off to get some hits.

    I remember seeing the last Zelda suffer this from a few randoms too (inc Gamespot) who as far as I'm concerned have no credibility whatsoever... they actually were caught out receiving bribes or something to that effect...

    Nope, June 14th worldwide (except Japan on the 20th). Thanks to timezones, we'll get it slightly earlier than the US.

    Really?... I swear I saw recently they were getting it a week ahead of us. I also assumed it was out now since the review embargo had ended meaning people had minutes to read them before running out to the store.

    Awesome of Naughty Dog to actually put all the reviews out a week before release, at least now I won't have to shut my eyes and avoid the internet until next week.

    You do realise that there are like 20 different reviewers from IGN lol. It's more their Xbox fanboiis that give the dog reviews.



    Plus yeah, 96 on metacritic after 56 reviews. That shit don't lie!

    10/10 from IGN. :lol: Do they have any credibility? I honestly won't be surprised if they start doing 11/10 ratings for next gen.

    Yeah, bit sus I agree.
    Still, good footage and mechanic explanations, etc. There is also a multiplayer footage video out on the same channel.

    yeah if you ignore the scoring at the end, it's a rather informative video. Though the polygon review seems a bit fairer... I still don't know if I should trust them considering the review they gave of Sim City.
