Nice score for the Spider-man, but i strongly disagree for the Dragon Quest XI score, that game deserves at least 8, beautiful game in every way.

kevnb68d ago

I think it deserves at least a 10.

SuperSonic9168d ago

Because its not on a Nintendo Switch thats why.

DrStronk68d ago

Overcooked 2 is on the switch, they still gave it a way lower score then it deserves imo.

Wow, that score for we happy few! First trailer had me so hyped for it, the premise was so cool. Then it just died which is a shame. Definitely agree with an 8 for spiderman, such a good game, not finished though.

Srhalo68d ago

We Happy Few is a perfect example of trailer vs game.

Not finished? I fail to see how Spider-man deserves less than a 9. The only flaw i witnessed was repeated character models for civilians, which every open world game has.

Visuals - stunning.

Traversal/controls - perhaps the best traversal i have experienced in an open world game

Story - excellent for a comic based game.

Combat - an evolution of the Arkham system featuring wonderful gadgets, exciting verticality, and a myriad of moves. Animations are smooth and dodging is well done.

The setting - the city is fantastically detailed and alive.

The game has run exceptionally well for me and there certainly appears to be ample content.

well, maybe because it`s just the same gameplay over and over and over and over .... after playing the game for 1 hour you`ve seen pretty much everything the game has to offer gameplay wise - same with God of War.

ninsigma67d ago

Maybe when I finish the game my view will be different. It's a fantastic game and I love it, but it does follow a lot of the same open world formula hence the 8 so far.

There is nothing unfinished about Spider-Man.One of the most polished, and complete, experiences this gen, in fact.

ninsigma67d ago

I never said it was unfinished. I'M not finished.

BehindTheRows67d ago

Then you worded it poorly :P

"Definitely agree with an 8 for spiderman, such a good game, not finished though"

That sounds like you're saying that it is an unfinished product.

Dragon Quest XI - 6
This magazine is a joke

Many many years ago I used to subscribe to Edge. I'm talking probably 15 years ago or so. At the time they were one of the few mags that seemed to treat gaming seriously.

But as the years rolled on they evolved from being the magazine / site that gave 'hard but fair' reviews using the full 1-10 scale, in to a bunch of pretentious tossers who couldn't tell a good game from bad as their heads were wedged firmly up each others arses.

I'm pretty sure there was a major change of senior staff, as all of sudden 'hard but fair' turned in to 'look at us for being so high brow'. I remember vowing never to read Edge again after a review for Mario Kart (can't recall which version), that was the most wanky piece of self congratulatory pretentious navel gazing I had ever read.

I hate Edge

they are huge Nintendo fanboys.

prankster10167d ago

Due to print's ever decreasing influence, and with no website to prop the brand up, Edge is now such a "has-been" publication. Forget about it. It's a dinosaur.

Srhalo68d ago

Yea the DQ score is ridiculously low.

DQXI is basically the epitome of traditional JRPG. All the things we loved from years ago mixed with all the things that have changed over the years.

SuperSonic9168d ago

Is that for the 3DS version?

Jdoki67d ago

Yeah, I think it might well have been actually.

Flewid63867d ago

It's impossible not to like this game?

Never played this series, but if it defies the laws of opinion, I may just have to get it.

obidanshinobi67d ago

Yeah I used to read Edge many years ago until I got sick of their pretentiousness.
