I rarely read reviews. I have my own taste in video games, and they do too. What I do is watch videos of gameplay and buy it based off of that. Now, if a game gets less than a 5 on PC Gamer or some other news site, then it is a no buy for me.

I could care less what the nerd sites score games. They spend more time writing about the games than actually playing them. Any and all reviews should be taken with a grain of salt, because at the end of the day...it's just some guy getting paid to give his personal opinion about a game that he's played for maybe an hour...if that. Seriously, a middle school student could do these guys jobs...sadly they'll likely keep their personal biases out of it a bit more as well.

Ign is the AOL of review sites, widely known but mostly irrelevant these days. Putting BF3 within .5 points of the abortion of a game known as RAGE.. They dinged it for.. having cheesy cutscenes in the SP campaign..? that's some new and improved brain surgery ladies and gentlemen.

The correct score is 9.5/10. And when COD4.2 aka MK3 gets an inevitable 9 or 9.5 it will be comedy since Activision sought to do little more than squeeze more money out of the same tired engine.. Zero ambition in terms of innovating or moving anything forward. Nothing. Slap some new textures on a few new maps and send it out the door with a straight face . New toy same happy meal.
