    They also added it's the best game on the wii to date.



    10 Presentation
    The best yet in the Prime series, Corruption comes to life with atmoshperic cinemas and voice acting. Meanwhile, a medal system and WiiConnect24 support offer great incentive to keep playing.

    9.5 Graphics
    Currently, Wii's best looking game. Retro's artistic sense is second to none. Prime 3 includes a welcomed variety of gorgeous planets to explore and runs in 480p / 16:9 at 60 frames per second.

    10 Sound

    The score by Kenji Yamamoto is as moody as ever, even featuring throwbacks to some previous games. The sound effects are punchy and the voice acting is well implemented.

    9.5 Gameplay
    Spectacular. Controls better than any console first-person game before it, features great pacing and a fun mix of puzzles and shooting. In contrast, there's a tedious fetch quest and some door loads.

    9.0 Lasting Appeal
    At 20-plus hours, it stands tall next to the other Prime games. The single-player affair is a little easier, but you can extend replay by scanning everything or playing again in Hyper Mode.

    9.5
    Incredible OVERALL
    (out of 10 / not an average) See All Award Recipients

    What do you guys think? is i a fair score?

    No because Nintendo only reviews nintendo games. So when they review a game they are comparing it to all other Nintendo games.

    When IGN reviews a game they are comparing it to every other game on every platform. PS3, 360, PC-all of them. Their reviews are much more balanced and fair.

    not really. the difference is nintendo is trying to market their games in the magazine, while IGN is not. IGN has different staff for each console, the person who reviewed this is the person who reviewed only other wii games and hasnt reviewed any for other console. ive always found wii reviews to be the most bias on IGN, with them scoring games higher just because they grew up playing them since the dawn of age so they already love all big titles before they play them.
    also, why do you ask people if thye think its a fair score, youre basically asking: is this a score you wanted?? | people who havent played the game shouldnt be able to judge whether its a fair score.

    IGN Wii the most biased? Have you ever really read through a bunch of their Wii reviews? They are extremely harsh on games. Heck, they often get slammed for being so harsh by some Wii owners. How many 9.0+ scores have they given to Wii games? The only one that comes to mind is Twilight Princess. There are a lot of 5s and 6s in that review list. In fact there are a lot of people right now bitching in the comments section of the MP3 review at Matt and Bozon for not giving the game a higher score. It isn't simply IGN that gushes on this game and the Prime series in general, it's pretty much every other site as well. On gamerankings.com the original Prime is 3rd all time with an average score of 96.3%. It's in the same company as Ocarina of Time, Bioshock, Halo, Tekken 3, RE4, Goldeneye, and Mario 64 on that site.

    What you really meant to say was you weren't happy that they gave this game a high score therefore you are going to blast them.

    Nope, sorry you're wrong. A review done by IGN is a balanced comparison against all the games on the current market. It's completely different from reviews done in 1st party mags like NOM.

    Let me also add one thing: I'm not upset that IGN is as hard on Wii games as they are. I like that. I don't want some reviewer to tell me a game is good only to buy it and find a bunch of bad things they didn't tell me about. I like knowing the good and bad when I buy a game. For instance, with Madden 08 Bozon mentioned the possible online lag issues. It hasn't bothered me so far, but had he not mentioned it and I had problems I would have been pissed off. I don't want to be BSed. Is the game good or bad and why? Matt and Bozon are typically pretty good at this.

    There is a backlash right now over the PS3 reviewers giving Heavenly Sword a 7.0. They told people what they thought of the game. If someone buys the game and finds that it is repetitive and short, well the review told them that ahead of time.

    Nintendo Power dosent give every game a 10, the only other one i remember is RE4 for GC. Yes they only rate Nintendo games but often they give lower scores to average games than non Nintendo specific magazines.

    IGN have never really seemed Wii biased to me. They usually seem fair enough although they do tend to compare Wii against the HD consoles quite often, which is pointless as no Wii game will ever be in 1080p.

    I think some peoples problem with the IGN review is that it seems MP3 was marked down a couple of points for being a sequel despite being superior in every aspect to its predecessors (which i believe got 98% and 95%).

    Not that it really matters, the only thing that does is that all reviews so far have said MP3 is awesome.

    I'm biased so I'll keep my opinion to a minimal but I think the game looks great. controls are nice, and the story is a good one. I'll enjoy it for sure.

    looks cool but i want to get it but their is nothing to do after you beat the game, except play it again. I know it's not the type of game with internet multiplayer and how nintendo loves to stick with their traditions:rolleyes: but it'd be much better this way, come on halo is pretty awesome.:smilewinkgrin:

    Nintendo and there traditions is the only reason they still have a business. The fans love the traditions, now I personally wanted it to be online but thanks to their traditions I keep staying with nintendo over any other gaming system.
