Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Super Mario3D World + Bowsers Fury ~ IGN Review

Quite rare to see someone's blaming the lack of lives and constant game over on the game itself, not on himself for simply being bad ...

Though, after the disastrous Xenoblade DE review from the editorial staff, I don't think most would gauge their opinion on IGN reviews as per usual now.

Too much mario 7/10
- IGN



I dont care about the rating, but the review itself feels like somebody is totally trolling...



IGN lacks consistency and standards
Some have said they put the IGN in ignorant.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Games should always be reviewed in relation to the time they come out. This wasn't a remake, it was a res/frame rate bump (I think?), with faster character movement and some additional content, so it should at LEAST get the same score as the first game got. FF7R is a game that deserves its own unique score that doesn't take into consideration the first game, but every Switch port from Wii U should be treated like Mario3D world deluxe.

The only problem I have is that he gave Sticker Star a higher score.

Why though? If I'm buying the game in 2021, wouldn't I be more interested in how the game stacks up against games in 2021? I mean, Super Mario Bros was a perfect 10 when it released because it blew everything back then out of the water, but it's not a masterpiece by today's standards.

This sample size of only two reviews for this reviewer already screams that he doesn't like video games.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Remasters or late ports often get worse scores than the original. That's certainly not uncommon not even for games that used to be the GOTY of their year.

Bioshock Collection - 84 Meta compared to the original releases of Bioshock (96), Bioshock 2 (88) and Bioshock Infinite (93)
or
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition - 81 Meta compared to the original (96 Meta).

That actually kind of makes sense. Sticker star gives you no reason to engage in combat, and thus there is generally no consequence to death. Apparently, this reviewer doesn't like it when games provide some semblance of challenge.
