The scores from the latest issue of EDGE magazine (210) have been released.
There's a lot of low scores there, but many of them are actually deserved like Wheelspin, Tony Hawk: Ride, and Avatar.
If people actually based their game purchases on EDGE's scores alone, they would have bought merely three or four 360 exclusives over the past several years.
You just insulted a big number of N4G members, and 360 / PS3 fanboys alike ;)
It's a UK mag with an industry focus. Twelve year old American retards tend to stick here on N4G, and discuss things they have absolutely no comprehension of. A lot like you.
"Edge is the most ridiculously biased 360 fanboy magazine" EDGE are much more biased in Nintendos favor than anyone else, but yeah, they are a bit unfair to the PS3.
Edge have the worst review rating system in the world. Anything that actually deserves a high score get's an 8 e.g. PJ Shooter, anything that is hyped up to sh*t gets a 10 even if the game is crap.
"Anything that actually deserves a high score get's an 8 e.g. PJ Shooter, anything that is hyped up to sh*t gets a 10 even if the game is crap." They gave UC2 a 9, Demons Souls got a 9, LBP got a 10. Stupid over-hyped LBP edit: Oh, and they gave MW2 a 9, guess that game wasn't hyped enough. /sarcasm
SMG did comparison piece where they looked at several of the more well read publications and had a look at their review scores on exclusives versus average scores to see if there was any bias apparent. Edge had the worst anti-PS3 bias of any site they looked at. Check it out. http://www.smgamers.com/?p=... aaaaaah...plug, plug, plug....
@kittenz - Exactly, the games that are overhyped get better review scores. Although some overhyped games deliver, I mean how can you give UC2 a 9 and live with yourself when the game won GOTY pretty much everywhere, and some don't.
Hmm, avatar still looked interesting from the GT review. I'll probably rent that today and test it out for myself, here's to the last day of exams!
Hmm. I haven't heard many good things about the console versions of Avatar, but I've yet to try out the game myself.
Eh it's to late now, I decided to rent Uncharted 2 :/
I saw Avatar running in HMV today, I'm sure overall its a steaming turd but it did look quite graphical, it was a jungle level that I saw.
Pretty unimpressive bunch except PixelJunk Shooter which was amazing
Couldn't agree more. There's clearly gonna be at least 2 expansions though. Interesting to see what more they can add.
Wow, I didn't expect that from EDGE. Congratulations to Q Games for yet another downloadable WIN! :)
...really hate games or just have the highest standards in gaming journalism.
I know that they hate the PS3 but look at other game reviews from this issue. Pretty low scores especially for The Saboteur. I thought that game was 8-8.5ish.
Everything you just said there is false. Metal Gear Solid 4 did not get a 7 out of 10 as you stated in your comment. It got an 8 out of 10 from Edge. You say that EDGE has not given any PS3 exclusive more than 8 out of 10? Check this: LittleBigPlanet: 10 out of 10. Edge's quote: ''It’s a multiplayer riot, a visual landmark, a feat of engineering, and one of the most charming games ever made. But even those accolades are dwarfed by its scope, its potential, and the apparent endlessness of them both''. They even gave LittleBigPlanet game of the year 2008. Uncharted 2: 9 out of 10. Edge's quote: ''Ultimately, no one will disagree that Uncharted 2 is one hell of a ride, and the best PS3 action game to date'' Demon's Souls: 9 out of 10. Edge's quote: ''Demon’s Souls is the antithesis of the fashionable approach to gaming. It encourages mastery over mere perseverance and every reward is so hard won as to make it almost unattainable. But if gaming’s ultimate appeal lies in the learning and mastering of new skills, then surely the medium’s keenest thrills are to be found in its hardest lessons. For those who flourish under Demon’s Souls’ strict examination, there’s no greater sense of virtual achievement'' What? They gave a underrated PS3 title a 9 out of 10? Holy sh*t. They give PS3 exclusives good score. Maybe you should get your facts right, and stop spreading false information about them.
You have no clue, learn to read and maybe you'll see they do give PS3 exclusives good scores. Two-Face just gave you a rundown of things but you'll still be clueless. I hate fanboys
They HAVE to give in when it comes to games like LBP and UC2 which are SO critically acclaimed that they have NO choice but to give the score they deserves. Other than LBP (cough* UK dev cough*), they ALWAYS give PS3 exclusives scores that are WELL below the metacritic average. And no, that doesn't mean those monkeys have 'high' standards, they gave odst a 9, 'nuff said
A 4 for Blue Toad? What the hell? It's awesome
... or actually I CAN believe it, as these kinda reviews/scores were one of the main reasons I cancelled my subscription.
I agree, LBP on the PSP is far better than the 6 they gave it but given the other scores they put out there a 6 is actually really good lol.
it's a pleasant game(completed it)but more for kids, but! it has too many little faults that kids would find frustrating, but I did enjoy it, I would give it a 6.5, the multiplayer is just ok.
the opinion of edge is irrelevant in the world of games..
Score for Saboteur a bit low. Should be around an 8.
would you be so driven by what anyone else says about a game. If you can demo it yourself then give it a go. If you look around the net and find enough reviews from sites you trust and they say a game is OK then go with them. After all if you disagree with edge then don't read, buy or entertain any of their views. Its not rocket science(maybe it is). I would agree they seem a bit harsh. Others don't. Choice, its yours to do, make one, don't let someone else do it for you!
