YMMV: IGN 64
- 8.8: Mostly averted. The editors were HUGE Nintendo fanboys and never gave a good game a less-than-decent review.
- One notable example is San Francisco Rush: Extreme Racing. Although they did reward it 8.9, that score is higher than in most other publications, whose editors did not play the game very extensively (Nintendo Power: 7.8; Electronic Gaming Monthly: 6.75; Gamespot: 7.1) and tended to evaluate it against high-tier racing sims such as Gran Turismo. Casamassina correctly recognized Extreme Racing as a stunt racer and reviewed it as such.
- Reviews Are The Gospel: The site would take its reviews very seriously. At one point they had to inform readers that yes, they did play The New Superman Aventures ... extensively. And that it hurt.
