Top 10 Worst IGN Ratings

IGN oh boy a rather imfamous site for the awful ratings they give to rating games because they are totally biased and unfair so here are their worst ratings please know that the rating can be low for a great game and vice versa

The Top Ten

1 Call of Duty: Black Ops III (9.2)

Only zombies was good - Biggboi

What nhl? This is call of dudy black ops 3 not nhl


7 at best

2 Doom (2016) (7.1)

It was an awesome game, and I can't wait for DOOM: Eternal! (I know I'm late)

Theu give this game a 7.1 and yet they give BO3 a 9.2 when this game is better in pretty much everyway and wasn't a Dissapointment UNlike BO3 was I think this game deserves a 8.5 at least - christangrant

3 Halo 4 (9.8)

Deserves a 7

I like this game but I don't think it deserves that rating at all as this game was Dissapointing but still decent in my opinion this game should get a 7.5 - christangrant

4 Undertale (10.0) Undertale (10.0)

This game in NO way deserves a perfect 10 at all it deserves around a 7.5 - christangrant

Nah this deserves around a 7. - AlphaQ

Deserves a 0

9 out of 10, and that's that

They only rated it that highly because they were paid to, don't you get it?

(look at my recent new review of it for a more in-depth explanation) - xandermartin98

5 Evolve (9.0)

I'm pretty sure Ign haven't even played the game and just looked at the cover and they're like "oh that's a nice looking cover well we haven't played the game yet but hey at least the cover is cool so a 9/10"

what IGN!

This game in NO way deserves a 9.0 because this game barley had any content at launch and plus this game was very dissapointing id give it a 6.0 at launch and a 7.0 with all the DLC - christangrant

This game was hyped, and delayed, the fact it has near a 9 is sketchy. - htoutlaws2012

6 Alien: Isolation (5.9) Alien: Isolation (5.9)

Best horror game of all time. Deserve 9-10

This was great though... - AlphaQ

5.9, Really? , This Was A Really Cool Game, - VideoGamefan5

7 Minecraft (PC) (9.0)

Overrated ass game

If any game deserves a 10, its Minecraft

Let me just remind you, Fortnite got a better score.

Derserve a ten
Very creative and revolutionary

8 Pokemon Omega Ruby (7.8)

Too much grass - B1ueNew

Only number 6? This should be number 1.

IGN is rude and all members should burn in hell and the videos should be locked away in a vault forever - Maddox121

There is too much water but counting it as a flaw is so stupid considering that you can take short cuts in ORAS that makes it less frustrating. - Rue

9 Battlefield Hardline (8.0)

Ugh, battlefield is very overrated - B1ueNew

This game doesn't deserve a 8 it desreves a 6.5 at best - christangrant

That and its sandwiched between two better games in the same series, Battlefield 4, and Battlefield 1. - htoutlaws2012

10 Grand Theft Auto IV (10.0)

San andreas is better (I am going to get V today) - HaloFanboy

A perfect 10 while this is a Great game its not deserving of a perfect 10 because they gave San Andreas a 9.6 when that game deserves the perfect 10 not this one - christangrant

The Grand Theft Auto that deserves 10 is San Andreas. This is weaker than most Grand Theft Auto games. I'd give Grand Theft Auto V a 9.5. - AlphaQ

The Contenders

11 Fortnite: Battle Royale (9.6)

Minecraft is better

Deserves a 7.0 - HaloFanboy

Probably one of the most overrated games ever made. Lack of originality and too repetitive...and the dances... EWWW. I would say this game does a 6/10 at its best. - MasterCreepy

Absolutely hate this game.

12 Star Wars Battlefront (2015) (8.0)

This game doesn't deserve a 8 at all at launch it deserved around a 6.5 - christangrant

13 Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky (4.8)

4.8?! Besides, the reviewer only played until Apple Woods!

This game deserves a way higher score than 4.8. Like a high 8 because it was one of the best in the franchise and the mechanics, story, and music were all great

This review makes me wanna die

Really? Repetitive music? And lampooning the pixelized graphics? They must have a vendetta to Pokemon spinoffs

14 Sonic Lost World (5.8) Sonic Lost World (5.8)
15 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (10.0)

Again, a solid 9/10, and that's final

It might have been the actually enjoyable gameplay experience that Bethesda games fail miserably at being, but that's pretty much all I say about it apart from it belonging to an extremely famous brand - xandermartin98

This game deserves a 10, come on.

Amazing game, I actually agree with this lol

Best game ever created I don't know what peoples problem is

16 Mass Effect: Andromeda (7.7) Mass Effect: Andromeda (7.7)

I Haven't Rented The Game Yet, But From What I've Heard, Welp, It Kinda Sucked, But I don't know, This Game Looks Like Absolute Disappointment, - VideoGamefan5

17 Street Fighter V (8.0) Street Fighter V (8.0)

This Game Is An Extreme Cash Money Grab, Why Online Only? - VideoGamefan5

18 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (10.0) Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (10.0)

Guns of the Patriots gets a 10? I mean, it was good, but not perfect 10 good. Now if this was Snake Eater, I could agree. - cjWriter1997

19 FIFA Soccer 12 (9.5) FIFA Soccer 12 (9.5)
20 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (7.7)

I'm done, they actually gave this game a higher score than doom - B1ueNew


21 WWF Raw (Xbox) (9.1) WWF Raw (Xbox) (9.1)

WWF Raw was at the time much less superior to its predecessors... it had crappy weapon physics, worse graphics than WWF SD: JBI (that by the way came out a year later and was hated even then for having under-expectation graphics) slow gameplay, bad character creation, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. 4.5 at best.

22 Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam (5.9)

Eh, maybe a 6/10 at it's best. Honestly this game was just an extreme downgrade lackluster compared to the masterful TTYD. - MasterCreepy

Honestly, it's an 8/10 game

Not a mind-blowingly memorable storytelling experience like Undertale or even a remotely original game or storyline in general, sure, but the gameplay is easily just as good as it's ever been - xandermartin98

23 Jurassic World Evolution (4.8)

When you look at who did the review, it turns out said reviewer doesn't even like the Simulation genre, which puts into question IGN's reviewing management. It goes to show how ill-experienced IGN could get.

Also, IGN gave JWE the lowest score the game has got. Everywhere else, it gets review scores of around 6 to 8. - CrimsonShark

24 Sonic Unleashed (XBOX360/PS3) (4.5/10)

I want 100% agree with you Sonic Unleashed is one of my favourite Sonic games. I gave it an A rank!

This needs to be higher than Lost World's. How does such a great game get a lower rating than such a mediocre, buggy game like Sonic 06?

HE SUCKS - EVERYONE! - NamiKazePants08

25 Ready Player One (7.5)


26 Beyond: Two Souls (6.0)

Seriously guys a -6- I'm sooo done with you people.

Beyond: two souls

27 Nickelodeon Party Blast (1.1)

How is this worse than big rigs? deserves around a 4.5-8 - Maddox121

28 Kirby Triple Deluxe

I hate most of IGN's reviews, but this review is WORST.

6? , this is the best because of Hypernova, yeah it's too "easy", but that's the point of Kirby, this game is meant for kids! - B1ueNew

This game was the best Kirby game in years easily a 8-9 out of 10 but they gave it a 6 because it was "too easy" which is the whole theme of kirby

29 Star Fox 2 (5/10)

Judging a game from the 90s from 2017 standards is just sad.

This game should be at least -o

30 Sonic and the Black Knight (3.9)

It's so good I love it I'm in love I want to marry it

31 Call of Duty: Ghosts (8.8)
32 Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing (2.7)

It deserves a 1.5 - Maddox121

It's so bad its good.

33 Frozen (9.3)

YAY! Take that, Thiti2000, SuperMinecraftKid and ChillPlayer123! I just can't believe the comment section of IGN's review of Frozen has so many people lauding Frozen! Frozen is a 4/10 (Bad) rating for us. What makes it less than terrible is that its animation is partially professionally done and its only characters with their hearts in the right place are Kristoff and Oaken. You know what else got an "Amazing" rating of 9/10 from IGN?! Hotel Transylvania! Sigh... asshurt AniMat haters that defend Sonic Free Riders while going "IT ISN'T THAT BROKEN! *throws temper tantrums like a spoiled infant*... >8(

34 Mario Kart: Super Circuit

it smells

It’s really not better then Double Dash or Doom. It doesn’t deserve this rating

35 The Emoji Movie (4.5)

This movie deserves a 9.5 out of ten. the only reason it isn't higher is because there wasn't enough poop jokes

36 Shrek: Swamp Kart Speedway

Must have a 12/10

37 Sonic Free Riders (7.5)
38 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (9.1)
39 Pokemon Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby (7.8)
40 Super Smash Bros Ultimate

9.5 because it's good but after you beat the world of light what are you going to do make random tournaments and random matches with you're friends online make stages not that limited I'm waiting for scorpion to get in the game
