    Quality of Reviews: Gamespot vs. IGN

    I want to hear some opinions about the quality and accuracy of game reviews at Gamespot vs. IGN. Most of the time they are at least similar, but sometimes games are reviewed totally different. For example:

    Scarface: The World is Yours
    Gamespot: 5.8
    IGN: 8.5

    WHats the deal?
    I know that playing the game is the biggest factor, but seriously, with this discrepancy, how do we know if Scarface is a mediocre 5.8 or a great 8.5?

    Who do you turn to for your reviews?

    I would definitely choose IGN for any reviews/gaming news that I want.

    I trust IGN more with their game ranking, but I use Gamespot a lot more.

    IGN for me too.
    I think IGN kills GameSpot by far!

    I'd have to agree that IGN are much better written reviews but I've found myself using gamespot more and more lately.

    Gamespot is usually more critical but more helpful in rooting out the problems that IGN often only briefly touches on. But, for Wii, I use IGN because I've noticed Gamespot kind of has a prejudice against any Wii Game's controls. Nothing wrong with it, but I don't want the opinion of a gamer who isn't familiar with the wii.

    gamespot seems somehow "anti-nintendo". I choose ign reviews over gamespot anyday. But I think gamespot has better news about games then ign.

    Wii games that I own: Zelda, The godfather, Wii sports, Resident Evil 4.

    Next up: Metroid Prime 3 Corruption
