The latest EDGE review scores are now available (September 2009).
what i surprise i dont agree with most of the scores like always
Edge perhaps stick to reviewing games in the context of their platform. So Rolando 2 is a good iphone game, and gets a score which represents that. However, that score cannot be compared to a game on a different platform - for example Wii,Xbox,PS3 because they're not iphones! Taken this way, a score of say 6 for a Wii/Xbox/PS3 game does not mean it's worse than Rolando 2, it just means that the Wii/Xbox/PS3 is capable of and should deliver more. Ultimately that means that scores in Edge mean nothing as multi-plat scores, and should be taken as specific and non-comparable across platforms. r.
Edge must live only to ruin metacritic scores
A person who takes Edge scores seriously is not a real gamer. Period.
Brutal scores. An iPhone game gets the best score of the month? Yeesh. At least they liked the new MegaTen game.
Oh its good to see that Rolando 2 is the best gaming experience this year. *Spits on edge Magazine*
rofl that was what i was thinking but they didnt mess up the transformers review at least!
here lets which ones i dont agree with: Wii Sports Resort <- to low Battlefield Heroes <- to low Rolando 2: Quest for the Golden Orchid <- to high The Punisher: No Mercy <- to low A Witch’s Tale <- to low Droplitz <- to low Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal <- to low
and you've played those games? these comment threads are only good for fanboys and people who think they know a lot about games. review scores are opinions based on the game and its surrounding infrasturcture (price, platform, full-game or dlc etc). i see nothing wrong with these scores. too many people think that it's an injustice if their fav series doesn't score at least a nine. get over yourselves. edge is one of the few publications that doesn't pander to fanboys and publishers, always wanting games to either score a 10/10 or a 1/10.
i have played most of those games (im not saying i played them all) but all it takes is judgement......your telling me rolando 2 should get a 9 over everything else reviewed?
i don't see why it shouldn't. is it because it's an ipohone game that it doesn't a high score? i don't even know why you're comparing those other to rolando anyway, it's notlike there scores mean anything in relation to each other; there not even on the same platform so why a problem with rolando scoring high? gaming isn't restricted to just sony, microsoft and nintendo.
Geez. Well at least they were fair with Devil Summoner
no madden review..
These scores are laughable
Rolando 2 is just a cheap Locoroco knock-off.
For the price you pay.....I was expecting better scores.
Rolando 2 is the best game released this year woohoo! Battlefield Heroes 5? Really? Even in closed beta it was worth 7.5 minumun Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor (DS) - 8 At least got one right
5 5 4 6 5 "But what about such and such game?" "Oh, that game... Did you like it?" "Yeah!" "5"
:O That was funny. Also completely true.
