    that's funny. I use wii.ign all the time, and I nearly always agree with their reviews.

    I always use gamespot, if it gets a rating about 7.0 I got rent it, and see what it's like, then if I like it, I buy it.

    sometimes I'll rent other games that didn't get great ratings, like Carnival Games for the Wii, then I can play it, get bored, return it, and never have to see it again :p

    1UP, since they use the entire 1-10 scale for their review scores.

    I use IGN's reviews, the video reviews give the best insight and really help me out.

    For me, IGN is the best hands down. Now, even if you don't agree with the review, you can always just watch the videos and make your own judgement.

    If you want game reviews from consumers, use gamefaqs. Be warned that you will get a lot of fan boys opinions.

    Nobody is good at reviewing games anymore (except Zero Punctuation, but that's balanced out by the Escapist sucking).
