Ninja Gaiden 3 gets 3/10

Ninja Gaiden 3 gets 3/10. I think we Pretty much all knew it would fail, and im personally glad the dumbass developers got what they deserved, they repeatedly bashed the xbox 360 version, completely dumbed down the game and then for the shit-cherry on top threw in an online pass.

You will find any review you read now is completely unfair. Its their opinion on the game rather than it being form a neutral perspective. It probably is worse then number 2 by the looks of things but never a 3/10 more like 6/7. Always make the decision your self rather than listen to others. Everyone has different opinion. Just common sense.

Don't act like anybody is thinking reviews are always on the spot but if a game gets such a low rating you should at least become suspicious and hold off of a day1 buy and check some other opinions.

I'll assist you; Mass Effect 3 is brilliant and the only way it could receive a 0/10 is if the reviewer has a dodgy "1" key that caused his key press to fail so that 10/10 turns in to 0/10. I didn't think I'd have to explain myself, but there you go...

If you have any more trouble, please speak to my assistant.

Critic reviews are obviously just another opinion piece, but an overall aggregated score is typically a decent indicator of what games you should pay attention to. I tend to find games between the 6-8 range are the hit or miss titles.

That said, if NG3 got a 3/10 and that kind of review is persistent, it's probably not even worth acknowledging.

Ninja Gaiden 2 was pretty shitty. Not surprising that this got a poor review as well.

Reviews are like assholes, everyone has one but I really don't care about others.

If I like a game I like it, if I don't I don't. It doesn't matter if some keyboard jockey likes it, or not.

its not only IGN who is giving the game mediocre scores guys/gals. So im guessing IGN's review is NOT a fluke

It's already been said but the only review that counts and or matters to me is the one I've come to conclusion on after playing the game for 10+ hours.

Reviews are becoming incredibly biased nowadays, in fact review embargoes are put in place that prevent anyone who doesn't give a review of 90%+ from being released prior to the release date. IGN could be stepping on some toes with releasing this a few hours ahead of schedule, but that doesn't redeem them from some of the biased and pretentious BS that site has spewed in the past.

In regards to reviews themselves, I've tended to stop reading them altogether. Along with the potential spoilers, however minor, that can be dropped in them, a lot of the time this is from someone who I don't know well enough to gauge. The IGN review of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine was from someone who clearly didn't know much about the franchise, and from reading it I couldn't get enough information as to whether it was any good or not because the reviewer clearly was apathetic to it all.

Don't bother with user-reviews, and don't bother with Metacritic either. Those negative reviews for ME3 are likely those disappointed in the ending vocalising their opinions where its likely to have more of an effect. There is no way that ME3 deserves 3.4, is there? The same happened with MW3 where a lot of users who misliked the franchise lowered the user score to around 1.5, it just shows clear bias.

Metacritic itself is abhorrent, if you remember the article last week about Obsidian and laying off staff, you can see that Metacritic has a negative affect on the industry. It weights the review scores in an unreasonable format that gives some reviewers bias over another, and that can have quite and affect when a company is required to get a certain Metacritic rating. Obsidian was stupid for accepting the contract, but that doesn't make it an ok practice.

Reviews should come from people you trust or have the same taste in games as you do. Like for me, all the guys at Giantbomb.com have the same taste in games as I do and I trust their judgement on games. If I see them give a game high praise on their site or podcast that I wasn't sure of or never heard of I will check it out. But I will never blindly buy a game purely on what kind of score it gets. Maybe its overall score on metacritic, but I always make sure that I know I'm going to enjoy the game before I buy it.

I could care less what users rate it.....users who love the game are too busy playing the game then to go rage on a game they dont like cause you can't camp in it and shoot people as they run by.

I don't really play video games that often so all I have on my tag are mainstream titles. I'll look into reviews and see what is being hyped a ton, and then I'll go rent it. If I like it, I'll buy it.

I also rarely trust anything that can involve random, anonymous people on the Internet reviewing something, especially if there's not a log in required. Random, anonymous people on the Internet are all dip shits. The Internet is full of people who act like their entire lives are those of a politician defending their party. Everyone on the other side is a failure, and everything they do is winning.

Tiger blood.

I usually go to multiple sites like IGN, XBM, GameTrailer, GameInformer to read what their opinion is on a game. I usually buy games out of random by going to gamestop and looking at everything for about an hour and rate it after a while of playing it. The whole rating system is a joke but some rely on it to see if they will choose to buy the game or not.

In this case I was a fan of the Ninja Gaiden on the super nintendo but wasn't very fond of Ninja Gaiden 2 and the only game I will be playing as Ryu is going to be Warriors Orochi 3.

I never bother with reviews, and have not for years. A couple of mates have a similar taste, so we recommend games for each other. Anyone remember Two Worlds? That got slated for being a pile of crap. Well, its my pile of crap. Far from the epic RPG Oblivion is. But I love it. Just bought it again as it was cheap. On the flip side, Dragon Age is a game loads of people love. Me? I loathe it. Bioware are hit and miss for me as a Developer, love Mass Effect, dislike Dragon Age. I'm just weird I guess. But the point is, judge the game yourself, and don't be a sheep to these biased fraggles who think their shit is chocolate and that you should listen to them.
