For the most part, I haven't really had any review sites (like Gamespot.com) let me down all that much. I mostly only use gamespot for reviews. The only game that I can think of at the moment that had positive reviews, but the game was pretty lame ass was Doom 3. I even wrote my own very negative review for Doom 3 (also very condescending, too). I was the only person to give the game a lower score than a C. I normally don't really write reviews for games, but Doom 3 was such a P.O.S game that I just had to write a review for it.
So far, in my opinion, gamespot has given some pretty accurate reviews so far from what I've seen. Usually if I decide I want to buy a game, I always go check out the reviews at gamespot.com.
Edit: There have been some games with low scores there that looked/sounded like they deserved them. If a game gets a low score, I usually just skip that game.
