God damn it IGN US! (Darksiders related Thread.)

Post  Bugman on Mon Jan 11, 2010 7:33 pm

I finished Darksiders tonight. And by God I would be lying if I said that this game is not awesome. Sure, it doesn't revolutionize the action-adventure genre, but damn is it a good one.
I you like Zelda-like puzzle and boss, then go for it, NOW!

But there is one issue I want to address. GOD DAMN IGN US!

Here and the IGN notes for Darksiders:

IGN UK: 8.5
IGN AU: 9.0
IGN US: 7.8

WHAT. THE. HELL!?

IGN US has given one the lowest score to Darksiders compare to any reviews on the internet (8.0 by Gamespot, 8.4 by Gametrailers. Gamedaily gave a 7... wait what?)
But I see what you did there, IGN US.
Bayonetta came out the same day in the US and received a 9.5. (8.2 for the PS3 version, what?) So in my head it's pretty damn clear that IGN received some money to cast some light on Bayonetta to make even more shadow to Darksiders.
GIVE DARKSIDERS A CHANCE FOR GOD SAKE! It's the best Zelda-like I ever played. Plus it's a new IP by a new developer Vigil and they really put time and effort into it.

BTW, I don't have anything against Bayonetta, I'm sure it's a good game, but that's just sick.

I haven't played either game yet, but from the trailers I saw Bayonetta looked really quite crap. Like a more fleshed out version of Bullet Witch and the protagonist is wearing slightly less clothing. No biggy.

It's a rating. Big deal, it shouldn't be a make or break for you. Read the review and you'll probably see how they justified their rating.

I've been playing it myself recently... It's very little like Zelda and MUCH more like a cross between God of War and Devil May Cry.

I mean, I guess the horse part is similar, but that's about the extent of it.

As for the score, it is completely outrageous. it deserved at least an 8.5.

Bayonetta seems like a pretty bad-ass spectacle fighter

-smexy heroine; check (librarians, sorry)
-lots of enemies; check
-extreme over-the-top ways to dispose of enemies; check
-screenfilling insane end-bosses; check
-pretty levels; check

yeah it deserves some praise I think

The Dungeons are what has the most Zelda feel in it (the puzzles, the bosses and items). The battle system is more of a God of War-Devil May Cry mix, yes.
I can't wait for the sequel. (I'll saty safe with the movie, thought...)
