I hate to stoop myself to actually complaining about a review score, but what is going on between GameSpot and Nintendo the last few years? Nearly every other site has hailed the Wii U version of Rayman Legends as the definitive version of the game. Yet for bizarre reasons, GameSpot has seen fit to first delay their Wii U review and then dock the game by a full 1.0 from the other versions.

This is not an isolated incident, either. As a frequent user of Metacritic, I have noticed that for 1st party Nintendo games, GameSpot is usually among the very lowest critic scores. The 7.5 given to Skyward Sword and the 6.5 given to Luigi's Mansion 3DS particularly stand out in my memory as examples in which GameSpot gave a dramatically lower score than nearly any other site.

Do you guys just not have any editors who like Nintendo, or what? Because it really seems like you have an axe to grind with the big N. I mean, you're perfectly entitled to give games whatever score you see fit, but it's just a weird pattern going on here.

How much do you guys get paid for each of these adoring Sony fanboy articles? I want in on this.

I see they kept with the awful, cringe-inducing voice acting that the series has always featured. Also, what's up with the ugly Everything Is Brown color palette? I guess that's a limitation of the engine, in order to push that much detail it can only render in one color? Shame.

Other than that the game looks good!

3D will always be optional in the foreseeable future. The ugly backlash against 3D is puzzling - if you don't like it, don't use it. 3D gaming is still in its infancy and no one is forcing you to take the plunge before you feel it's worth it. But to hope the technology dies is idiotic. To hope it drastically improves from its current state - great! Hoping it "dies" is just backwards. No one in an industry dependent on graphics technology should fight against the advancement of said technology. In my opinion stereo 3D and photo-realistic graphics are the last barrier to making our virtual worlds look just as good as the real one. You're not a cyclops in your real life, so why should you be in your virtual ones?
