    I was searching for game reviews and pdf guides.
    I found out that ign and gamespot are the best ones.
    Can someone tell me which is better????

    I like gametrailers.com. Good narrator voice.

    Same here juggs. I really trust the reviews of the site and the voice just feels right. It feels really out of place when they change it.

    ign and gamespot don't work with the word good. their official reviews are often bought out by publishers to force the reviewers to give them a good rating. gamespots not soo bad with the userbase being given the option to review the games and whatnot.

    i usually just check out metacritic.

    What's with Gamefaqs? They actually not only got nice community reviews, they also include links to nearly every other source on the net for each game.

    I don't trust gametrailers.com AT ALL.
    They've done too many tricks and said too many lies to be any credible. They have decent amount of trailers and number of them exclusive, do go there for trailers but nothing else.

    Gamespot's infamous for selling review scores for money (nothing "blockbuster" recently, but doesn't mean their old habits died)

    "You can't spell ignorant without IGN" (probably) originated from viewers after reading IGN's horrible reviews.
    Like the statement that XBox360's graphics didn't improve at all compared to the old XBox's (which must have been corrected by the staff a long time ago without leaving behind any proof unless you've got one before the correction).



    gamerankings and metacritic would give you a good idea about the game if you're a frat boy in the States, and a reasonable idea if you're not.


    Don't trust user review scores, but do read user reviews for their content. Games get 0/10 user review scores before releasing any playable form of content, or 10/10's.
