IGN on the other hand seems to work on a 7-10 scale and IMO, simply has poorly written reviews.

Completely disagree, GameSpot are notorious for being full-out Microsoft geeks. I love reading/watching their reviews as they are pretty spot on but their scores are highly inconsistent and confusing.

Here's a quick glance at what I'm talking about...metacritic scores are in brackets.

360 Exclusives

Gears of War 9.6 (94)
Gears of War 3 9.5 (91)
Halo: Reach 9.5 (91)
Halo 3 9.5 (94)
Halo 4 9.0 (87)

PS3 Exclusives

Uncharted 2 9.5 (96)
Uncharted 3 9.0 (92)
God of War 3 9.0 (92)
Killzone 2 9.0 (91)
Heavy Rain 8.5 (87)
inFamous 7.5 (84)

Is it a coincidence that every single Xbox exclusive has a higher score then the average, yet every PS3 exclusive gets a lower scoer then the average from GameSpot.

The Last of Us 8.0 (96)
