I gave up on IGN's iPhone reviews a long time ago, most of them fall somewhere between "inaccurate" and "totally useless". If they're compiling a top 25 list I can only imagine that it'll all be top selling games perhaps mixed with a few total duds.

thats probably spot on. they only put on games they've reviewed, which isn't very many. They only review like gameloft, ea, and digital chocolate games, with a few exceptions. Their reviews suck anyway though and they have no idea what they're talking about. On their review for minigore the reviewer wrote it thinking that chillingo was a developer and that they were developing so many games lol. I corrected him though and he fixed it.

IGN reaches a wide spectrum of audience, it's articles about the platform benefited not only apple ( additional sales of itouches and iphones) but the indies as well as it increases it's audience. And as in like everything if something becomes too popular the haters also comes out of the woodwork! I value IGN for making it known to the gaming world that the idevices can be a valid gaming platform, I for one got into iphone gaming after reading an IGN article and that is long before I knew Toucharcade existed.

I don't see how they can love Squareball so much. Sure it's an alright indie game but it definitely doesn't make the cut in my top 25.

actually i like ign,though they don't include iDevice on the main platforms(only on More tab ) they review many iPhone games,not all of course,too many
unlike Gamespot who include iPhone beside PSP,PC,PS3 but isn't updated and don't have much review and details about games

My problem with IGN stems only from what I consider to be glaring oversights in their review of iPhone games which I find unfortunate because of their popularity over smaller enthusiast sites. When I play a game I feel has horrible controls and the controls aren't even mentioned in the review I feel that's a glaring omission. When there's two games in the same genre and one gets a higher score then another simply because it has more content even if the controls are horrible I see that as massively inaccurate. Sometimes when the controls are mentioned other features are overlooked, you can't treat the iPhone like an XBOX because as far as controls, graphics and general worth of content go the iPhone is far more subjective then any other platform.
