Which Reviews Do You Trust Most?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Which Reviews Do You Trust Most?

None. I read/watch several reviews and see if the opinions correlate.



Around the Network

I typically read IGN reviews, and that's about it. If I'm really curious about a game I'll scope out what people have had to say about it on here. I do at 'scores', but it's more of a curiosity thing than something I really take into consideration before making a purchase. I long ago discovered that my tastes aren't the same as everyone else's.



Bah!

i use gamespot for reference but my main source of "reviews" are gaming forums because i speak with others about the games and see if the game interest me by the feedback they gave me... i never buy games at launch so i can get alot of info before i buy the game!



Proudest Platinums - BF: Bad Company, Killzone 2 , Battlefield 3 and GTA4

I gave up on gamespot. I used to visit the site everyday but I found I really didn't like the reviews there. I haven't gone to the site now in probably a year+.



Bah!

User reviews, the only ones you can trust these days.

Have you read the user reviews on this site? Or indeed any other site on the internet? About 1% are decent or better. 99% are either:

  • Ridiculously short
  • Terribly scored
  • Written by people who don't own the game
  • Written by people who hate the console
  • Any combination of the above.

Just wondering, have you read any of mine?  Just wondering and I'd like a VGC reviewer's feedback  (some I need to edit badly though).

I just read a couple; you're firmly in the 1%.

^-^ Hope you enjoyed the ones you read (I know the 2 Halo ones I need to majorly edit).  It's really funny when reading my more recent reviews (at this moment); it seems the lower the score is, the better I am at explaining the score :P.  Both of my 10 reviewed games need work

damn, i guess i better practice more, since chances are im in his 99 percent lol



ign and gameinformer.



Nowadays for me it is more about seeing the game in motion, getting a feeling for the graphics, sound, difficulty and gameplay. Gamespot, IGN, Gametrailers provide 'Video Reviews' and for me it gives a better indication of a game rather than a written review. I do check out the positive and negative parts of a written review, but it is a video I prefer to see. If I am looking for an older game I usually check youtube to see some gameplay footage.

I recall an older one putting you in the 99% but I read your BC2 one and  it's safe to say you're in the 1% in my eyes.  Like mine, it needed some grammer tweaks and I recall one part mentioning "Since SP doesn't require an internet connection, we'll start there" (

I hate not having anyone to check my grammer >_< but thanks.
