well not trying to sell for this company but i usally go with gamepro. i find they usally rate games the rate there supposed to get. they mess up a few times but not very often.

Myself. Why? Because someone who rates it might rate i for what they want not what I want. Friend worships Far Cry, it sucks, but he worships it. WHy? "The graphics man!" Your point? No storyline(not good anyways) the controls are the same as all others, and there are games with better graphics if you are looking for it. I look for games that have a replay value, like D2(Dif. Races, difficulty levels, items, so forth) and a good storyline(H2, Homeworld 2) or that is just plain fun!(Starcraft, Mario for NES((1&3, not 2, 2 sucked)) Graphics don't matter if the game itself is fun/great. But my friend? It could be Barney and Friends but if it had good graphics he would worship it.

I like to use're submitted by a whole host of people who have actually played the game and their comments actually provide some deal of insight into what works and what doesn't...

Honestly though, I've never really had a problem with GameSpot's system...

For console games I usually agree with the Electric Playground.

I often watch the show on TV. You can stream episodes from the site as well.

PC Gamer magazine (I dont play consoles). I like the fact that they are big enough to trash the big titles if they need trashing. Alot of smaller publications cannot afford to speak badly of certain publishing houses because they cannot afford to lose the advertising. But conversly, publishing companies cannot afford NOT to advertise in PC Gamer. As a result, PC Gamer gives some amazingly frank and accurate ratings. Also, I agree with most of the reviews they have given games I have actualy played.

In the end, I only use these things as a guide. If I really want to play a game, I could care less what the critics say. Great tools if you are already on the fence about a title though.

(Of course, I get most of my games for free, so it hardly matters

I use
The give a rating out of 10 from professionals and they also allow the gamespot community to give ratings and reviews.

IGN doesnt seem bad, and they are not quick to hand out a good rating for a big name, but poor game. I've read alot of their reviews. They rank fairly high, but never perfect. Lots of 7-9s.

I don't trust anyone. I think they're all biased.
