On the topic, I'd say play the game first before passing judgment on it.
Don't let IGN be the be all end all of reviews, FFS.
Follow IGN? Ha, I would much rather listen to my own opinions, than the opinion of a single review. However, Game Rankings, and Metacritic, gave it 73%, which tells me to avoid it. A compilation of multiple reviews is stronger than your own opinion, especially if you don't have an opinion to begin with,for you may have yet to play the game. I don't want to spend $60 on a game that got mediocre reviews, for I could buy a game with much higher reviews, and expect something superior. But, to make every one happy, I'll play it one day, and see how good it is myself.
