EDGE slams Lair and Two Worlds; praises Halo 3 and PGR4

The newest edition of the British games magazine EDGE has just hit stores and first readers already posted all the review scores on the internet. This months edition contains reviews of some big titles like Halo 3, PGR4, Metroid Prime 3, Lair, SKATE, Stranglehold, SEGA Rally and Eternal Sonata.

Like many other reviews, Lair did not score so well with a 3/10. Two Worlds didn't do much better either with just a 4/10. Phoenix Wright and Jam Sessions on the Nintendo DS did not impress either with both just a 6/10. Metroid Prime 3 also quite disappointed according to EDGE with just a 7/10. Stranglehold, SKATE, Sega Rally, and Eternal Sonata all were rewarded with 7/10 scores.

Wow!! 3/10 for lair!! Wasn't this game being praised by Sony FanBoys as a triple A title?? They should've just kept putting out screenshots instead of releasing the game!! Everybody would still be praising it.. What a waste of time.. Now everybody what have we learned from Lair??

That screenshots or hype don't make the game AAA title!!

Now if you want to see a bunch of AAA title get a 360!! hopefully Mass Effect doesn't become the next Lair... I highly doubt it will..

They also praised Final Fantasy Tactics on the PSP, Skate on the 360 did well, Singstar on SP3 got an 8 which is good for a casual title.

Pheonix Wright got a 6? About time people realize how overated that damn series is. Or maybe it's because I think lawyers are rats. Either way.

Well hopefully the excuse of IGN, Gamepro, Gamespot, etc... being biased towards Microsoft will end with this review. Edge is one of the good ones. It's pretty much unanimous that Lair is a joke. And it's no secret that Halo 3 just pwns all but it's good to see that my beloved PGR series is getting good marks. PGR4 is another AAA title.

Eat your heart out Sony!

microsoft paid 360 owners to pre-order the 1.7M copy than paid another 1M to buy HALO3 games so they can beat SPIDY3 recored.

sony trolls..burn...baby...burn..in sony sack

WOW they gave Two Worlds a 4/10, a little high if you ask me. Everything else seems about right (imo) score wise.

InMyOpinion3679d ago

Yeah, I don't get why some sites gave it 7/10. It's practically unplayable. 2/10 if you ask me.

Halo 3 got a 10/10 at edge. It is the 3rd one they have ever given, bioshock got a 8/10 for sake. I don't know how true this is though. There is no way edge will give out 2 9's, and a 10. They never give out 9's ever either.

Capt CHAOS3679d ago

Not sure why people seem to think that Bioshock should score higher than Halo 3.. I played the demo and yes it was great.. But after completing it, I doubt I'd be playing it again. The fact that I didn't rush out to buy Bioshock is saying something..

This is meant more for later posts than this one.

As for people complaining that no game can be perfect, 10/10 doesn't mean that. It's great and fab, if 10/10 was disallowed then the ratings would ALL stop at 9/10 and then it's no longer a scale to 10..

is this a BIG SURPRIZE to anyone?

Edge is the harshest reviewing site in the world. I am more shocked that pgr4, and halo 3 didn't get 7's or 8's. They got a 10 and 9, over bioshock. I am certainly amazed. Better yet, Edge is known to be a little biased toward nintendo, and giving mp3 a 7 was shocking.
