EDGE & GAMEStm are the best quality gaming mags in existence.

Proper professional journalism & both stick rigidly to 5 being an average review score. Anyone in the US who wants to read some of the highest quality gaming journalism should import both these mags.

no question about that, but 7 for alone in the dark? =\

They gave one of the greatest games to hit the industry ( MGS4) a 8/10 and HALO 3 a 10//10.

EDGE STOPS THERE.

LTC2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

Edge are one of the worst out there. 8/10 for NG2 a game that has 79 average on Metacritic and giving the same score to MGS4 which has an average of 95 is unacceptable. They also gave Halo and GTA 10/10 when clearly both games are below MGS4 in quality.

There reviews are all over the place and I rarely take them seriously.

I used to respect Edge because they're hard on games, and I like reviewers to be hard on games. But then Edge gave Halo 3 a 10. How can you respect any magazine that gives Halo 3 a 10? Edge is retarted.

The same way people respect reviewers who give MGS4 a 10 and call it a cinematic masterpiece - gawd, the dialogue is so contrived!

NGII same score as MGS4???

I love EDGE, but seriously...

...not even funny.

Xi2926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

... for different folks.

Every game this day and age has to be reviewd with regards to so many factors.
genre
platform
fanbase/history
etc.

I would never consider mario galaxy getting a 10 in graphics compared to crysis, but it's worth a 10 on the wii. GTA gets a ten because compared to all the other sandbox games it still feels the best.

How they rationalized the score they give to NG2 and MGS4 need to be taken with a grain of salt, like what's it's competetion, what's the hype, who's the developer, whats the fanbase like, how is it for casual gamers, what platform is it on, etc.

tell me about it...

played MGO today (a lot)- it alone should justify a higher score for MGS than NG

WIIIS12926d ago (Edited 2926d ago )

NG2 is a more visceral and enjoyable action game than MGS4.

MGS4 has better presentation, graphics, cinematics and storyline.

Both are imperfect

But I appreciate that NG2 does not pretend to be more than a fighting action game, and that in NG2 you get to play the coolest parts of the game rather than sit back and watch them and think "why can't I execute anything remotely similar to those moves ingame with Snake?".

TheDeadMetalhead2926d ago

Although that's the first moderately good score for Alone In the Dark.

heyheyhey2926d ago

GT just posted their video review- it's pretty positive

don't know what IGN was thinking- they were way too harsh

niall772926d ago

but the Pro Bias they have for UK developers is well known.

ps360s2926d ago

EDGE...First Metal Gear Solid 4 getting lower then Halo 3 and now NG2 getting same score as MGS4!

I will put 7/10 for NG2...good game but not better then MGS4 in my opinion.

I didn't mind Halo 3 getting a 10 (since it's their opinion and I do like the game) but when they gave MGS4 a 8 I thought wtf! Now something is wrong...
