Do you read reviews for games before you buy them? How much stock do you put in them? Will you still buy a game you were really looking forward to if it got really bad reviews? Do you ever buy a game because it got great reviews, only to be disappointed by it? I will almost always read reviews when I'm considering getting a game. I try not to let them influence my decision too much, but if the reviews are horrible then I won't buy the game. I wasn't really interested in Mario Sunshine before it was released, but then IGN gave it a great review so I figured it was worth getting since I loved Mario 64. Well I ended up hating the game. I played it for a couple hours and never played it again after that. I'm not sure what the reviewers were thinking. Seems like a ton of people dislike that game.
