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

Game is excellent, Bowser's Fury is loads of fun. IGN can rate the title whatever they want, I am enjoying it with the family.

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.

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.

Not to me. I just beat FF7, gave it a 9.2 based on when it came out and what we could expect of games back then. Should it instead be lower now because compared to brand new games nowadays it is terrible? Absolutely not! If they are remade entirely like FF7R, then yeah it should be reviewed by today's standards. But they didn't, so it should be reviewed by the original 2013 standard. Back then they gave it a 9. This has better speed, additional content, and looks slightly better then before, but nothing they couldn't have done on Wii U if they left it in the cooker a little longer back then.



I hate that lazy Nintendo is after cheap money, but that's no reason to go from a 9.6 to a 7.0

I believe IGN gives a score based on how good the re-release is rather than how good the actual game is, they are obviously after new players in the biggest part and as such the game must be treated, and I'm pretty sure new players will enjoy this 9.6 masterpiece as much as WiiU owners did in 2013

now by IGN's thinking, a 7.0 almost translates to 'not worth re-buying'



don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

Yes, it should be rated by today's standards because that's when Nintendo is selling it. The score should be intended to reflect how much I will enjoy it when I purchase it.

Sony just released Sackboy's Big Adventure a few months ago. Nintendo is releasing Super Mario 3D World now. Why shouldn't the two games be judged on the same criteria? If I have to choose which one I want to purchase and play today, why is the fact that 3D World is a port relevant at all?

This is nothing compared to the Gamespot 8.9 review of Twilight Princess.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

It's a different reviewer so they shouldn't be obligated to score it in line with how someone else did over 7 years ago.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Too much Bowser.

This new reviewer decided to go against the grain and give a low scored 7 while everyone scored it higher? how does that work?



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Would be clever... if you hadn’t ripped it off Verter...
