    Suppose it'd be fair to say at this point they'd rate it 8.0/10 to 8.5/10. IGN dodged a bullet. :P

    Can't wait till it's rated "8.5/10 - Too much mountains"

    "How dare IGN rate BotW this low!! They gave CoD a 9/10 and a 10/10" silly comments.

    Maybe they got sick of easy deaths (one shots by enemies like Yiga) and weapons breaking.

    Yiga? One shot? They hardly even do damage to me, even in Yiga's Clan Hideout [They're easy to dodge]
    It will not change that IGN is a CoD fanboy lol.

    4/10, not even in my top 1000.

    I have to explain this is a wrestling meme, in case I get a shitstorm, I never even played it.

    that is bs, i give botw a 11/10.
    too much complaining.

    i personally think the game is fantastic, best zelda game i have played.
    (and i play it on the WiiU, the only negative about the game for me would be the frame drops in towns, but it does not ruin the gameplay).

    The framerate on the Switch version is pretty terrible at times, I can imagine that it's even worse on the WiiU version. But aside that, the PAL physical release of Zelda:BotW on WiiU looks beautiful and like a piece of art!

    Misleading title is misleading.

    Not misleading, the video auto-proves that their review is no longer an actual 10/10. Even IGN couldn't resist from criticising it.

    It's one of the best games I've ever played and I can't think of much to dislike about it.

    I watched the video last night. Unless I missed something, they didn't rescore it.

    Did they?

    If Xenoblade Chronicles got a overall score of 92% on MetaCritics this game deserves at least the same overall score on MetaCritics and perhaps a 9.5 on IGN.

    Both games were day one buys for me but I haven't finished BOTW yet, I find BOTW a harder game with more exploration, that's less story driven and feels more like a offline MMO game.

    10/10 doesn't mean perfection with zero faults. It just means the game is a masterpiece and BOTW is undoubtedly a video game masterpiece.

    10/10 does not necessarily mean absolutely perfect. Most reviewers who gave BOTW a 10/10 had some gripes with the game, but they felt these gripes didn't take away from the game to the point of lowering the game's score. Until they change their review to something other than a 10/10, then it's still a 10/10.

    8.5 or 9/10 seems fair to me. It's a great game, but it's far from flawless.
