The latest edition of Edge is now available and the review scores from the issue are now appearing online. Killzone 3, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Pokemon Black/White, and more are reviewed.
MvC3 a 7/10? O_O Didn't see that comin.
It's EDGE. You should always expect a horrible score. That magazine isn't worth reading if you care about game reviews.
True, seein as they gave games like GOWIII and MGS4 8s. But I didn't expect that kind of score for a multiplat, especially MvC3. Edge mostly gives bullshit scores to PS3 and Wii exclusives.
I had such high hopes for Mindjack and they were crushed underneath a boulder... Be that as it may can't wait next week MvC3! Though I guess the score was dropped because of lack of spectator mode perhaps and replay?
this just shows they give dumb scores as always just because they can, I mean are we to take edge seriously considering their review score over the last year or so?
Pokemon Black/White  I hate this magazine
What, you think they scored it too high or too low?
i like edge. they dont throw around 9s and 10s often like most other sites. most other sites will review a game and " this game is good 9/10". to me a 9 is a really great game and most games that get 9s or 10s dont deserve them.
its one thing to rate hard but its another to rate unfairly and they do that often.
They dont know gaming is about having fun either.
I thought gaming was more about pretty graphics and generic gameplay. At least that's what N4G has taught me. OT - I expected more from Knight's Contract. It looked promising in previews.
No,they play favourites instead and exhibit bias.The KZ2 review very little mention of it's excellent AI when Halo they crow about it all the time.Yet I never saw KZ2 enemy AI fail,,whereas a friend of mine had enemies trying to melee kill him through pillars in ODST.Edge thought the AI was great in that game,they then when on to mention how the buddy AI didn't work,but it didn't hurt the ODST score. I read it cover to cover for years but it's gone downhill since Mott took over as editor and it's no coincidence he was Gamecentral editor before that.They are Metro now but still anti Sony. It is actually true that the media are anti Sony it's not fanboys nonsense.I could literally point out hundreds of examples.The recent treatment of NGP vs 3DS shows illogical analysis of each system and hypocrisy.
I dont know, the Killzone 3 Demo makes this latest review seem unreliable.
Maybe. Then again, it's your word against the word of an established review source. I haven't played the KZ3 beta at all. But I've seen a lot of the videos and I wished they had made the game more colorful than they did.
Play the beta. No amount of video watching will replace real gameplay fun
What in the world are you saying? I played the single player demo and the graphics look great. I guess you want it to look like you just took LSD and have all kinds of wild colors. No thanks.
Yes, Brian. I want to live in a world where I took LSD and all the wild colors are flying, Brian. Is that okay with you, Briiiian?
Just buy Killzone 3 and ignore all reviews. If you try to make sense from all of the reviews you'll just go crazy.
Well, they gave the same score as KZ2. So, if it as good a gamee as KZ2, day one for me. Of course, Edge has documented bias against the PS3. So a 7 isnt news. Best graphics, best AI, best enemies, fun gameplay, but apparently not enough Halo in the title.
I mean on Gamespot.com it means good And on Gametrailers.com they can say that the game is good and give it a 7.5. OR they only give 10,9,8 to those who pay them, i don't know. In that case MTV Games must have payed them a ton of cash for Rock Band 3 getting a 10.
I just pulled out an issue of EDGe to look this up. At the front of the reviews section is a small box. It's the scoring system explained. What's funny is they list the numbers 1 through 10 and after each is a = and after that the number is spelled out. So the whole explanation is 1 = one, 2 = two, 3 = three... I have no idea what that means.
it means read the damn review not the number. Edge reviews are excellent but no one reads them, they just spend the whole time crying over the score. they have said in the past if they could remove the score they would because the score only means something to fanboys.
Your wasting your time. This is N4G you are trying to talk sense to. It is the same people that say they don't care about scores or sales and they are the first person to comment about a review or sales don't matter. I don't care about game reviews like I don't care about movie reviews. Beta is out for Killzone 3 and if you have the capability to play that aspect of it then go right ahead. People arguing about someones opinion about what they said in a magizine or online is just as bad because. The same people bitching about the 7 score are the same people that if Edge gave it a 10 it would be a weapon from that same magazine to down Halo or Bulletstorm or any other game that didn't score as high. Contradicting, whining grown men who can't think for themselves and claim to live this title of "hardcore gamer".
i think they are more like children than grown men. this is what happens when you mix maturity with immaturity in a forum.
Okamiden got a good score
Edge are just not in touch with what gamer's expect or want.
For me, Pokemon White/Black is an easy 10/10. Best RPG I played in 2010. Killzone 3 and MvC3 getting a 7 isn't a problem. I'm betting both and I'm gonna enjoy the hell out of both.
Yes that's right, every month Edge's rag provides another fantastical adventure all in the name of BIASED un-impartial bought-off journalism. Nothing cutting edge here
Edge takes the fun out of gaming.
