These reviews from everywhere lately, including IGN, have started to sound more and more like advertisements instead of critical reviews. The average game on IGN must get an 8/10. I've stopped going to review sites recently because all they do is hype games and take payments for advertisements.
That's why I only really use Metacritic for reviews..I figure it's the easiest/best option overall..the only alternative really is investigating sites..making sure they're independent and aren't taking payments for reviews..which can be nigh impossible.

With that said..I find IGN generally has a really in-depth style of reviewing which I enjoy..it would be a shame if this was tainted, though not at all unexpected.

Ya it doesn't seem right -- editing the review itself isn't a problem I'd say, but they should make official mention of the reason they chose to remove the description of the bug.

Hm, maybe the error they cut was remedied? If not, man that's sleazy!
