Really not surprising to see this. I wonder how long this has been going on to make COD games 10/10 because honestly is the same game every year. All they do is change the maps, perks, and guns.

IGN seems to rarely give 10/10 for sequels so I'll be suspicious if they give this one a 10. We'll see. I don't usually let reviews sway my decision one way or another. I'm diggin BF3 and am mainly getting MW3 for the single player story. But maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised with multi too.

Every site gets paid to rate the big titles high. Every game sec knows that if they don't and some hipster reviewer gives their game a 2/5 it will hurt sales.

Also I thought IGN never gave out 10s? Haven't looked in a while but I thought 9.7 was one of the highest.

Since it was posted by someone who "didn't want to name names" I'd say it's fake anyway. Base off true happenings, but a bs post.

I'm not sure it's a fake, tbh. Quite a lot of the leaks on 4chan/Reddit come from good sources. Like the GTA 5 map leak, for example.

I just find it odd They would say an editor is requiring a 10/10 rating.

Meh... I think that Activison have a lot of pressure on them to deliver a really good CoD this time around. A lot of people preferred the MW series and considering the games that either out currently, or coming out soon, they have a lot of competition for that $60 (that's what you guys pay right?).

I don't pay much attention to reviews but I'm fully expecting a brown-nosing from IGN full of cliches such as 'back to it's roots' and 'evolution'...unless the writer is a Christian, in which case, f#ck Darwin, right?

$65 plus tax here. I'm sure IGN will have a lot of good footage and game details... and some glowing reviews - I hope most people know that's not where to go for unbiased reviews.

I generally go by gameplay footage. That said, I only really buy the mainstream games these days.

I think 'From Dust' was the last game I played that was one that already had millions of pre-orders...

From Dust was excellent, but it was XBLA so I don't get how it had preorders.

Meh, I'm still getting the game and I generally don't care to much about what reviewers say. I'll read to see what kind of stuff the game offers and decide if it's something I'm interested in, no matter what score/grade the reviewer gives the game.

Sounds like complete horseshit to me. Probably from a Nintendo fan boy. Notice how they state that Skyward Sword was the only legit review? Bullshit. Do they receive pressure from the big companies? Sure but this smells like crap to me. Plus I highly doubt a 10/10. We will know soon enough.

You guys remember Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)? Back when it was around, publishers were pushing them for higher review scores by taking away ad space if they didn't give the games the proper review. Well, EGM stood by there integrity and wouldn't do it. Then the publishers did pull the ads, and GEM went under. So I won't say it doesn't happen, or there is no pressure, but this random posting still sounds like fanboy BS to me.

I don't care if MW3 gets a perfect score from every website or a zero from every website, it's not going to sway me. It's the exact same game they have made every year, and I still go back and play MW1 as I feel it is the best of the series (besides COD1 back in the day). WaW, MW2, and BO were boring to me.

Same with Skyrim and Zelda, I don't care what the reviews say, I'm going to buy them anyways (well, buy Skyrim and obtain Zelda lol) and enjoy the hell out of them.

Interesting. IGN gave Uncharted 3 a perfect 10. The Uncharted series is one of the greatest games I've every played but the perfect 10 was surprising. I to, thought a perfect 10 was never given. (I don't think I've ever seen one from IGN). The COD: MW3 review should be interesting...

ING will give out the perfect 10 from time to time but it is rare. I have a feeling the Uncharted truly deserved but I'll give my impressions once I get to play it.

LOL! Called it. IGN = 9.0 and pretty much just what I expected. A good solid score for what is likely a good solid game. sure it has some flaws but overall it's a good game.

It's another COD game with some new game types and killstreaks that have been reworked. I'm gonna play the hell out of it, but I'm glad I got BF3 cuz I think I like that one better.

I think the IGN podcasts are pretty entertaining and help to pass the time when I'm working but their reviews are pretty useless. These days it feels like the site leans more towards "men's entertainment" than gaming.
