The writer specifically stated that the review wasn't the time and place for negative feedback.

Not even lying, she actually said that.

They were paid to
Point blank

Either GF directly gave them money, or threatened them with not getting any more early review copies if its given a bad review

It had to be one of two things

1) most likely- they were paid. This game is not better than all the prior games. IGN is disgusting if they really think this is acceptable journalism.

2) there was a hardcore Pokémon defender fan reviewing it to fight back at the negativity in the community

Or, y'know, maybe the games really are that good.

Look, back when I was new on the internet over 20 years ago, that one saying about IGN was going around.

They were ALWAYS known for being utter hacks. ALWAYS.

They're not. They're still fun to play, but considering everything I've experienced now that I'm in the end game, I'd give it around a 6/10. Keep in mind, this is not the American education system, a 6/10 is still above average, but not great by any means.

That wasn't the context.

They said it wasn't the time or place to bring up the controversy regarding the dex cuts/the negativity surrounding that, since they were reviewing the game as it stands.
