GC - "Mario Kart 8 and Trials Fusion have scored big, while The Elder Scrolls Online hasn't done too well."
Another favourable review for MK8. This game's gonna be awesome. As for the Elder Scrolls Online, I'm disappointed because the game looked to have so much promise.
So 9/10 without online, +1 for online ? lol Either way I'm getting this game.
Yup, it is incredible the high level of the Nintendo top tier games. The creativity and design competence of those guys are really amazing.
What's amazing is their ability to code without making mistakes (glitches) and having to patch them. They got through last gen without any day-one updates while other consoles had them for almost every game.
I think MMO isn't the way to go. I've always wanted to play the single player game co-op. That I've always thought would be awesome. Your friends can drop in and play some quests with you, hop out whenever. It would be legen wait for it dary.
this will be my first wiiu game amazon.de just announced an amazing steelbook edition http://www.gameskinny.com/g... now i just have to buy the console... lol
Good on ya mate. Planning on picking any other Wii U games up, or just this one?
Did they access the online component?
Doubtful. The German review we got recently said that the online servers were not yet open.
Take these scores with a grain of salt. Not saying that MK8 didn't deserve a 9 (I figure that scores will be 9+ across the board) but they only gave Child of Light a 5/10. A game that most sites have given very high scores for.
That's pretty typical for EDGE, to have at least 1 or 2 reviews that go against the grain...
I know right, Child of Light is a fantastic new game. If it was called Mario of Light...totally different.
XD Mario would not have fit into this game, that's for sure. Though, thinking of Mario in this kind of turn-based RPG rekindles my desire to see a true sequel to Super Mario RPG.....
Super Mario RPG 2... come on Square Enix.. the fans have spoken XD
Or the last of light.
Child of Light - 5. WTF?!?! That game is one of the best gaming experiences all year, heck it's one of the best JRPG's period, notwithstanding it's length, Naa... it's definitely an 8 or 9 game. Edge need to get off their high horse already.! I'm sick of professional reviewers who have lost touch with what gaming is about. HAVING FUN!!!
I entirely disagree with Edge's scoring of the game, but you gotta keep in mind that the guy probably didn't find it as entertaining, saw the flaws as being too big to allow him to have fun with it beyond the middle score of 5, and scored it accordingly. As it's an opinion of quality as seen by the eye of the writer, it's a valid representation of his experience with the game, nothing more or less. All reviews are opinionated and biased to some degree.
The problem is these high-brow gaming journalists don't consider their review scores to be mere 'opinion'. They consider their scoring as an absolute. As a statement of fact as pertaining to the quality of a game.
I know; I hate that type, too, but in the interest of not wasting my emotions on such people, I look at reviews like that as the opinions of a critic that takes his job far too seriously.XD
Well i'm playing it ATM and i can understand where he is coming from it starts really good but after an hour youve already seen all the mechanics it's a fun game but it pales next to a true jrpg it really doesn't feel that substantial
A 5 from Edge is a 7 everywhere else. I'm expecting 10/10 from most sites for M8
MK8 - 11/10, confirmed.
Child of Light and Mercenary Kings getting 5/10 is way low. Both of those games are 8/10 in my opinion.
Edge tends to have a Harder marking scheme than everyone else. mario kart 8 gets a 9? well that's a huge achievement. Congrats Nintendo
May 30th :)
Yay the scores!!!, i never understood the score system cause it's subjective for example I would killzone 3 a 4 as I liked the cover system but I didn't enjoy they game however I would give uncharted 1 a 9.5 as the game was so good but I didn't enjoy multiplayer, now u won't agree with those scores and u shouldn't because it's my opinion if reviews were more just telling you what the game is and what it does well and what they did bad and maybe put a list of games at the bottom that the reviewer also enjoyed then it would encourage more people to try these games
Only 7/10 for Kirby?? Wtf?? this game looks amazing....:o
I agree, wtf. The game's literally 3 games in one, as well (although some are smaller than others). It's got to be at least an 8.
I could be wrong but i think there are 5 in all, i hear 2 more unlock after you do something.
