Heavy Rain seems almost like a love me or hate me type of game; though Edge's review scores for PS3 exclusives almost always seem below par when you compare them with other sites. Either way check out the games and don't let negative reviews restrict you from your own opinion.

"Heavy Rain seems almost like a love me or hate me type of game"
It is. Those that hate the game are those with "plant-sized IQ's" and those that love the game are those who like adult, mature gaming and new experiences in their new IP's. This score is not a surprise coming from EDGE since they are of those with the small brains.
table  +   2114d ago
Even though Heavy Rain is a love/hate game, we always knew that Edge would hate it :)

7/10 is still a good score by Edge ps3 standards though. That's a 8.5/9 for most other sites.

Or maybe they simply like actual gameplay instead of scripted QTE's.

No, the ones with the small brains are the ones drawing conclusions based purely on a number - 7.


Edit - summary of Edge's Heavy Rain Review criticisms (from

Main complaints are not being able to tell what some actions do beforehand, and a lack of scene setting - you're plunged into situations without exposition, and even the character thoughts don't say why you're doing what you're doing. At one point you investigate a crime you don't know exists because of this aversion to exposition.

Characters rarely comment or reflect on the plot, and the only signs of change are visual rather than emotional: bandages and bruises reskinning the character. Deaths tend to be badly handled too, most coming at the hands of "comic book villains" and robbed of gravitas by the poor epliogues.

Also they say that one chase scene verges on parody, with you dodging chickens and crates of fruit and absent only two workmen carrying a big pane of glass.

Kitty Kat your reasoning is so flawed... in heavy Rain you move your character, investigate, etc.... until there is something to do and you press a sequence of buttons...
well, what do you do for example in Halo 3?
Apart from moving (the same,) you press the triggers all the time and ocasionally a button to throw a nade.
So in HR you even have more gameplay, you press more buttons :O

@Happyfeces: It's already getting very high reviews, sorry bro ;)

"did sony fans really think this heavy rain game with terrible voice acting and its only gameplay quick time events was going to get high reviews?

really? "

most reviews are giving it 8 or 9 but yeh you latch on to the few reviews that give it a lower score...
Shadow Flare  +   2114d ago
You're not denying that a bunch of apes work at edge then. Edge always score ps3 exclusives lower then everyone else, and are always below the metacritic. I'd probably never buy any games if I solely used them as a review source. Whats the point listening to them if they always going to be pessamistic, nay, biased. Because they usually aren't consistent with their criticism when they review 360 games. They're well known to score down ps3 titles well below the average. Ergo, they're a useless source
Bubbles_Kitty_Cat  +   2114d ago
lol, get over yourself, SL1M DADDY.

Not liking a certain type of gameplay doesn't mean that someone has a "plant-sized IQ". To even suggest that is ridiculous, and makes me question YOUR IQ.
SL1M DADDY  +   2114d ago
Bubble - "Not liking a certain type of gameplay doesn't mean that someone has a "plant-sized IQ".
You asserted that Gameplay and QTE's are not one int he same and that QTE's are in fact, not game play. I made the point clear that QTE's are in fact game play just different. Sorry you didn't understand that, maybe next time I need to think and write my thoughts down as though I were a child. That way perhaps you would better understand my posts...

You know there is something wrong with a magazine when they can hand a 10/10 to Bayonetta, but give a 9/10 to Mass Effect 2 and Uncharted 2. I am glad that HR actually got a 7/10; they actually think it is a good game!
Obelisk92  +   2114d ago
I thought Heavy Rain could have scored 8, but 7 is still a very good score for EDGE (they gave it to Killzone 2 too, and 8 to MGS4...).

I'm happy for Mass Effect 2.
Cyrax_87  +   2114d ago
Heavy Rain a 7?
Good ol' Edge, rating PS3 exclusives nearly 2 whole points lower then the average score. I guess this means the game's as good as KZ2, it's a win.

I'm predicting an 8 for GoW3. They've already said "Bayonetta slaps Kratos and Dante...", so they're definately not going to give it a good score.
Bubbles_Kitty_Cat  +   2114d ago
SL1M DADDY, you are really grasping at straws with that one, my friend. lol

You know exactly what I meant, and your "all gameplay is gameplay" logic is a very lame attempt to defend QTE's and Heavy Rain's massive use of them.

Just accept that some people don't find QTE "gameplay" enjoyable, and stop trying to defend the game with insults and put downs.
Ravage27  +   2114d ago

dragunrising  +   2114d ago
Don't think your heavy handed insults go unnoticed. Your IQ has nothing to do with the type of game play you enjoy. I like FPS's, RPGs, and QTE games (Shenmue comes to mind). I do NOT like racing games or strategy games. Does this make me stupid? NO! Ignorance is bliss, isn't it?

Hoggy1983  +   2114d ago
No, I think you need to read SL1M's original post today. You're criticisng one gamer for stating that all QTE's aren't true games. Yet your not criticising another gamer for stating that only those of a high intellect appreciate QTE's. 2 generalisations yet only one you have umbrage with. Contradiction, no?

I think BioShock 2 deserves higher, it is very familiar to the first but that isn't a bad thing because the first game was awesome.

Edge's rating indigo prophecy(Fahrenheit)It’s almost shocking how seamless, engrossing and accessible Fahrenheit is. It’s sad, then, that it shows weakness in the one area where it needed to be stronger than any other game: the script. [Oct 2005, p.84]score 80

now things are changed. heavy rain is not a multiplatform title or a microsoft exlusive title.obviously rating scale is lower.

Re: maspi
No, it's just that standards have moved on since Fahrenheit (which established this style of gameplay).

There was a "Time Extend" piece in Edge recently about Fahrenheit, which was fairly critical of the plot going full retard.

I'd say Fahrenheit was pretty overrated at the time, people were all applauding the adult direction and innovation that it represented - glossing over that the player ends up as a zombie jedi fighting the internet.

OMG! Get over your little persecution complex, take out a dictionary and look up the meaning of disagree.

If someone disagrees with what you're saying, it means ->THEY<- don't share your opinion or view. It doesn't mean that you don't share your own opinion or view..

I know its not just you, but everyone on this site gets so sensitive over disagrees when they clearly don't understand what it means..

mastiffchild  +   2114d ago
I'm sorry to have to say this as I always oput it down to them liking the controversy before but it's getting embarrassing for me to read anything Edge do these days. It's got to be more than a coincidence when they ALWAYS(unless their bias towards a UK dev is in action as with LBP-they love their fellow brits at Edge and always have)mark PS3 games below their metacritic(though they gave the first ME a 7 so I was pleased to see them notice the second one was a better game)-it's gettng ridiculous now and UI don't think I'vve ever seen anything like it in all my years of reading and working for mags and newspapers.

I don't enjoy the thought but it's got to the point where Edge look truly biased. I never thought I'd say something like that about fellow journalists but fact is fact and they keep on doing it. Everey big Ps3 release is marked down on Edge, dress it up however you like but it's way beyond the realms of coincidence at this point. Very, very sad that this should be happening in a publication that I used to subscribe to and in my own country.Shameful.

Even if, and it may well be the case, this i an honest review I'm at the point where I can't believe there isn't a bias against the Sony platform at Edge and I'v flought the idea even against the stats for over a year now but, distressingly, it's time to say I lost this one and something odd has been going on.

Back on topic. I called it!! I called it in my previous post. Edge gives HV a 7. It's quite sad when I can predict edge's bias review scores. Even when everyone else were giving most 9s and 8s, I come out and say Edge will give a 7 and I was bang on the money. Funny that.

And you still think edge arn't little baby fanboys that have a little tanty everytime an awsome PS3 exclusive is released?
jack_burt0n  +   2114d ago

Its true when ppl talk about the bias they are not exagerating its UNMISSABLE i was a long time subscriber 2 edge.

All these high scores for bioshock 2 are shocking the game is about 4 and a half hours long, commercial reviews are meaningless nowadays imo.
Omega4  +   2114d ago
ME2 didnt get a 10 from Edge!? I thought they were biased towards the 360.

That 7 for HR wont help increase its 89 meta score was so close to being AAA too.
Chris399  +   2114d ago
What was that statistic the other day? That only 20% or so of gamers actually follow reviews/ metacritic?
The pixel and score counters are in the minority. Shame that Army of Poo outsold what "critics" hailed as the "superior" game - Bayonetta - last month.

Guess it goes to show that people don't give a $hit about all the fanboy b.s. that happens on the web. You could learn something valuable from that factoid, Omega.

the only difference is they just so happen to own difference consoles..

My POINT is that all of your posts are merely something negative about Sony, the PS3 or it's games and services.
Why you loathe an inanimate object so fiercely MUST be linked to a very poor sense of self-esteem.

I am a gamer. Ask any of the people on N4G who have me on their PSN/ Live friends list, and they will tell you that lately I've been spending my time between Magna Carta 2 and WKC (will be playing the Wii in the summer too, once Arc Rise Fantasia is out). I don't care about the system, I care about the games (well, the genre - JRPGs in particular). I can easily level complaints against any of the companies who make my little toys. For example, I have made comments on N4G that cover a range of opinions, such as: Wii has weak online features and $hit graphics, PSN has very poor support for the Go and Sony takes too long in releasing their games, 360 has terrible build quality and Natal doesn't look very exciting (same for the PS3 wand - for "motion control" spazziness, I don't need any of these casual devices I have a Wii).

My brain is capable of separating the art of what I love (the games) from the faceless corporations that back them. Yours does not seem to have that function. You appear to be a blind, mind-less, capitalist to the core; spouting the same gibberish for your imagined "team" as the PR mouthpieces (Greenburg, Dille, Reggie).

And moving away from the issue of your mental flaccidity, back to the subject of review scores, my point is this: 80% of the world buys games without the influence of such things as review scores or critics, so why is metacritic and all this internet nonsense so important to you when it's only a small part of the ecology?

It just seems like another character defect to me. Seriously, you need to get out more, grow up, get a girlfriend/ boyfriend (I don't judge) or something. People like you (same for PS3 and Wii fanatics) make it less enjoyable for the sensible people here on N4G.

Im only replying to your second to last paragraph as its the the only thing which actually relates to what i said, cause i dont remember talking about anyones life story.

I would think it would be quite obviously why i care about reviews and the such. To make it a little more obvious for you to comprehend i will use something you said to explain. You split gamers into two groups, with one consisting of 80%, now which group do you think both you and I and EVERYONE who comes onto and comments on N4G :)
Chris399  +   2114d ago
Comprehension seems to be an issue for you.
I, personally, did not split gamers into two groups, I merely pointed to the schism that exists and has been documented. Once again you are trying to polarize things even further - such seems to be the nature of your mind. Of that 20% or so, the "hardcore" who follow trends, news and reviews, not even ALL OF THEM (hence the story about my personal relationship with gaming) give a crap about someone else's opinion when purchasing a game. You, along with the other pixel-counters and red-faced, screaming fanboys are in a minority. It's a very vocal minority here on N4G, as this is a microcosm and not indicative of reality, so maybe that's why you think what you say has merit.

I'm not saying that your opinion doesn't exist, simply that the vast majority of people on N4G and in the real world, don't care about what you have to say. So, respectfully, keep it to yourself.

Was that clear enough for you?

It's funny how last year the high scores that some PS3 games received were rubbed in the faces of 360 fans by PS3 fans, but now that several PS3 games have received lower scores the attitude has shifted and now we are told that these games are really amazing despite their lower scores.

Why wasn't that attitude applied to the great 360 games that came out last year? Where was the 'oh, it's all subjective, just try the game out for yourself' attitude last year?

@ Hero

You don't understand what's going on here, I'll try and explain it to you.. The low score is not the issue , it's that Edge, and also Desrructoid played right into their self established typecast of "PS3 exclusives get no higher than 7" 7 is the score everyone was expecting and no one is shocked at all by this. Edge is completely predictable. Make sense?

7/7 from Edge's PS3 Review system!

Bioshock 2 gets an 8, because it's a marginally improved sequel in the First Persona perspective!

ME2 gets a whopping 9, because I'm sure it satisfies the reviewer's urge to feel like they're in a relationship.

Props all around!

You sissies are all the same. Whenever anything even remotely critical of Sony is said, the source of the criticism is automatically accused of being a part of some worldwide media conspiracy against Sony. Geeks.
spektical  +   2114d ago
your so full of anger, and completely take everything out of context.
The fact is EDGE has been really harsh on PS3 exclusives, while 360 exclusives are raved as being "epic", "astonishing", and "far-reaching." Facts are facts. In fact if EDGE , a "professional" reviewer is being biased towards a console, might as well not rate the games that only pertain to that console. Bias is found around the world, but the key is to limit it, especially if you are a "professional" critique. Meaning you must treat every product the same, with the same consequences. For example, saying Uncharted 2 is just Uncharted 1 with bigger story, more weapons and just graphic upgrades , thus it deserves a 8. This should also be incorporated into HALO: ODST, for being shorter , having just as many weapons as HALO3, and graphics virtually unchanged. Edge has no consistency, which is why, gamers and to an extreme PS3 fanboys see this publisher as a joke.
XXXCouture  +   2114d ago
dude.. i just fail to see the point in there ridiculous reviews

ODST a 9/10? rofl, thats okay to give it a 9/10 but then DO NOT give, MGS a 8/10 or Fable 2 a 9/10 or Left 4 Dead a 9/10? the graphics on that engine is so piss poor, and you can get through fable 2 just by pressing x, y, a or b all the time, and you dont even die.. and i completed ODST on 4,5 hours, why the fu*k dont they deduct points for that? when they obviously do it for HS

Skeptical, open your eyes man. This has been going on for a while now. There are so many Sony fanboys that believe that MS buys out media resources to give bad reviews to Sony products and games. That's just stupid. Not every PS3 exclusive is going to get a 10 out of 10.

Uncharted 2 won Game of the Year just about everywhere. I don't see why many of these "biased" news sources would acknowledge the greatness of one PS3 exclusive and not another.

Here's a crazy thought: maybe Heavy Rain isn't quite the 10 out of 10 people thought it would be, and maybe Mass Effect 2 is that good. These things are bound to happen to 360 exclusives too, don't worry. Maybe Alan Wake or Splinter Cell will turn out to be less than expected. Or maybe they'll be even better, you never know.
thor  +   2114d ago
HAHAHA it's laughable how biased Edge are. There's no denying it, they have been STATISTICALLY PROVEN to be biased against the PS3. Heavy Rain is currently sitting on a metacritic of 89. What do edge rate it? 19 marks below the average, the lowest score on metacritic.

Of course Mass Effect 2 gets a lovely 9/10 which is not that far off the average. (Plenty of other mags/sites have given ME2 a 9).

I'm waiting for Edge's review score of GoW3; GoW3 might well get an average metacritic score of 90-ish, but we can bet that Edge won't give higher than an 8, guaranteed. I wouldn't be surprised at a 6.
kwyjibo  +   2114d ago
I like how you capped STATISTICALLY PROVEN because your argument wasn't strong enough to support lower case letters.

If you think reviews should be there to second guess the Metacritic average, then you're doing it wrong.

It's not like Edge are unique in in giving Heavy Rain a 7 - and the review treats the game as it should be treated, it focuses on the story, narrative and interactivity. How many mags/sites gave the original Mass Effect a 7? Or Bioshock an 8?

You totally miss the fact that the review is positive, you choose to focus on the instant gratification of the score, rather than the context and how it got there. And if you're that type of person, I don't think Heavy Rain will be for you - how about the Wii?
thor  +   2114d ago
By statistically proven I am referring to analysis that was performed a few months ago here on N4G (I forget which user did it). If I recall correctly, it basically showed that unlike sites which PS3 fanboys claim to be biased (like Eurogamer), both the mean and median scores for PS3 exclusives were significantly (beyond 2 standard deviations) below the metacritic average compared to 360 exclusives.

Of course I am going on the score since the review itself was not posted, and of course 7 still indicates a positive review, but the scores themselves give a good indication of the bias (and are the only things that can be statistically analysed). I know I don't want to read the review because it will be full of the Edge staff's provably biased opinions.

Edge are not doing themselves any favours by consistantly rating PS3 exclusives lower. Personally I will never buy the mag, because it disagrees so wholeheartedly with my personal gaming tastes, and the tastes of most gamers and reviewers out there.

I actually own both a ps3 and an Edge subscription (been getting the mag since issue one, and kept it up as a tradition/to have something in the mail). But... they've gone past the point of being 'a little statistically off the norm'. Their marks are quite noticeably and consistently lower for the PS3 (versus practically everyone else). There's the odd outlier (eg. British made Little Big Planet - Edge is a British mag btw), but overwhelmingly the scores they give to almost anything ps3 related are pretty far beyond the low side of low.

Props for not owning a ps3 and being able to call it, though frankly anyone 'not' calling it at this point is telling themselves fibs.

yeah...just look at their scores for all of codemasters games (all above THE average)...conspiracy...i think not just old fashioned looking after your own so to speak as they are practically neighbours. I just hope they dont expect the people who have clocked on to give them a free pass like some do especially non ps3 fans.

For those who have been wondering. We called on EDGE to rate Heavy Rain so low....
And the score shows... yes we called on it. No surprises here it's EDGE move along now.....

-End statement

dont care if it gets 1/10...still buying heavy rain
MaximusPrime  +   2114d ago
Typical of Edge. I knew they would give Heavy Rain (a PS3 game) low score despite other top sites gave it 8 or 9.

I played the demo before it releases on PSN store. I love it. Even thou its a demo i would predict a score of 8 for this.
gillri  +   2114d ago
I expect those score's, I was certain of an 7/8 for Heavy Rain

Can't say I'm surprised. In fact, I was all but certain EDGE would score HR at a 7. It's clear as day: EDGE has a bias against the PS3. The statistics don't lie.
bjornbear  +   2114d ago
not surprised
it is EDGE after all...

but who listens to EDGE right? =P...(awaiting for someone's reply...)
gillri  +   2114d ago
LOl I love the bias arguements! they're funny

didnt they give LBP a 10, UC2 a 9, Gran Turismo a 10?
bjornbear  +   2114d ago
it isn't bias
its just shoddy reviews

i personally don't agree with EDGE because i've played games they've given 7's to, and to me they are 10's.

its just a personal disagreement, since i don't think their reviews are catered for me, and many others

it isn't about bias, its just different =/

i know they gave those games high scores, but they are exceptions

many games I love they gave low grades for, and to me they didn't make sense, so i pay no attention to them =)

however i came here to check if HR got a 6 or a 7, just because i was sure it'd be a 6 =P
thor  +   2114d ago
On the contrary.

Edge have been shown to consistantly give lower marks to PS3 exclusives. To sum up their gaming tastes would be to say, "If it's a PS3 game, Edge probably don't like it as much as everyone else." It's not that they punish lack of innovation - Halo and Gears of War get great scores whilst Killzone 2 gets 6/10. Braid gets 9/10 whilst Heavy Rain gets 7/10. Flower only got a 7/10. Can you spot a pattern?

Sure, there are outliers, such as LBP, but if we average the scores up the general pattern emerges that the ONLY criterion for getting great scores from Edge magazine is to NOT be a PS3 exclusive. It's plainly obvious to see.

In any case, even if the laws of probability have conspired to provide the PS3 with Edge's least favourite type of games, I still don't agree with their opinion on almost all counts.

its not biased, but edge just suck
God Of War 2
Beyond Good and Evil
Zone Of the Enders 2

BWAHAHAHAAHAA look @ the mongoloids weep and spin! Thanks sony for sucking so bad again. 2007 is back. Good year for gaming, bad for sony scum, back to the graveyard burying its dead platform once and for all.
SacredWizard  +   2114d ago
I have never read EDGE. And won't again knowing they are biased.
Antan  +   2114d ago
Just another opinion. As i always say, take the overall average as the best indication.................89% or so is it? Should be good enough for most of you.
Ashriel  +   2114d ago
awwww, I thought I could trust EDGE :( but anyways I should actually read the review and play the game myself before giving my opinion.

But seriously, what's their problem with sony?

EDGE on is best :-)

None of us have played Heavy Rain so complaining about a score for a game no one has played is a bit premature. I loved the demo and I'm hoping I love the game, but the game isn't for everyone.
anh_duong  +   2114d ago
very few people are complaining about the review score.. most people expected edge to score around 2 points lower than metacritic..
JohnTheBaptist  +   2114d ago
There's so many games coming to the Xbox 360 this year the SonyFlopFans are getting jealous. Enjoy your flops, we're be enjoying 2010 with a big smile on our faces.

Ahh, it's a great time to be an Xbox 360 gamer.
Trebius  +   2114d ago
You forgot to put the /s after &quot;So many games&quot;
We all know 360 has no games :)

Quit living in denial...haha.
Imalwaysright  +   2114d ago
Lol it seems that his opinion doesnt exist as he let others decide wich game is AAA or not. His only opinion is: games on 360 = AAA, games on PS3 = turds. Its like he somehow forgets that if he is playing good games on his 360 its because the developers did their job right and that the games he is playing could very well be made on an piece of hardware that it doesnt have the name Xbox 360 attached to it. The same could be said about any PS3 and 360 fanboys on N4g that love to play their hardware instead of games!
