IGN review New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - IGN review New Super Mario Bros. Wii

I've done reviews before, I know its hard to use disgression on certain things, and every reviewer has their do's and don'ts but some games should be related to the amount of fun to be had with it.

I certainly can see comparing MW2 with MW that makes sense to me as 2 was designed in MW's image. But NSMBWii could be compared to the DS game but then the score would be skewed compared to the DS version this is a 10/10.

So then this game should be based on the game vs the player.

Just my 2 cents.

I've seen this before though... MKWii got lower scores to another game that got perfect scores.

Now it's happened again... oh well these scores will prove they don't reflect or mean anything soon enough I suppose.



I'm Unamerica and you can too.

Crappy score for a game "better than the DS version".

Silly remarks from the usual Nintendo stalkers/haters.

Wonderful posts by Rol, noname, Khuutra and Claude to name a few.

Motion controls are an industry standard now. I shouldn't see any game that lacks this feature scoring above an 8.5. Lazy devs.

the scores don't mean as much as people give them credit for. They are merely suggestions to buy a game.

It seems odd to me to knock off points for not having something; shouldn't games be rated, within the category of gameplay (if you will), on how fun, long-lasting, and/or (enjoyably) innovative they are? If such a game had those qualities to the extreme, would it not get a perfect score (in that category, of course)?

I mean, one could always add more to any game, and, hypothetically, make it more enjoyable, whether it be in modes, levels, number of players, never-ending download content, etc. So, to score a game on lacking those things would always result in a score of 0. A game should be rated, then, on how enjoyable it is; if most people would play it for thousands of hours, then that would be a 10.

Unless, of course, IGN was only saying that the game wasn't altogether as long-lasting level 10-scoring game, and were only suggesting online as a remedy to that.

To lavish praise upon this title, the assumption of a common plateau between player and game must be made.  I won't open my unworthy mouth.

I just noticed something. Why is the lack of features (including online multiplayer) under the Presentation score and not the Lasting Appeal score? Is there no consistency where online multiplayer should land in the scoring of titles?



Tag: Became a freaking mod and a complete douche, coincidentally, at the same time.



In another example,
"While I played this offline game 10 thousand times longer and enjoyed far, far more than any other online game I've played, I'm gonna score it lower than those in the gameplay section", is the oddness at which I'm getting.

this was for kirby air ride that ign posted for its "lasting appeal"

5.0 Lasting Appeal
Lots of four-player split-screen and LAN-enabled multiplayer options. But it still comes back to sloppy play mechanics.

so as you see... I probably played 40 hours of this and only one time was boring was...boring (im sorry kirby :'( )

... at the end... if you dont agree with the reviewer, then simply ignore him and enjoy the game you think it would be fun. Also, reviewers can do anything they want with their reviews... i think, they can down and up the scores for multiple features or no new features...also... in the kirby air ride review it got a really low score because
1. it was simple (they meant it in a bad way)
2. they compared it to f-zero and mario kart double dash
3.it came out late...
4.nothing innovating...
so after this I should stop reading reviews... most of them anyways >_>




              

That's sounds like a great game. I'm picking that up for Christmas. :P

Well, that's not really a good example; Kirby's Air Ride was trash.
