3/10? Ouch. That's harsh, even for Edge.

jdfoster2482d ago

Not really considering the amount of bugs into it. It's more buggy than Fallout New Vegas! Now that's something! Audio is all messed up. Keeps freezing all the time. Just crashes every few minutes... Falling through the world into some weird place... glitches etc etc

GamerEuphoria2482d ago

Iv had a audio bug...and that's it, if it's so buggy then feel free to post some proof of these bugs you have pointed out, after over ten hours with the game only bug i came into contact with is audio based.

StanLee2482d ago

The game looked like rubbish from day 1. I did not get the hype at all.

Thank you edge. This was a piss poor launch and this should be made an example of

Have it on pc

I never know if Edge's ratings are genuine are they're just rating games low for hits. I know in the past they've put out some downright questionable reviews that have left me asking "What game did you play?" or reviews that actually don't sound bad, but then they lowball the score.

I haven't trusted a word Edge has said for some time now.

Well I haven't played it yet, but this is the lowest review I've seen thus far, so I'm still pumped. Can't say some of the points he makes don't make me a little concerned though :\

Mines already shipped from Shopto will be coming tomorrow. Really looking forward to it and looks like my sort of game.

Daver2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

loll at those idiots.. How can they be credible after reviews like that..

bumnut2482d ago

Ill decide how credible they are after I play the game myself on Friday.

I hope they are wrong!

Kushan2481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

To be honest, I appreciate EDGE's harsh review process. There's too many good games out there that get missed because so many mediocre ones make it through (Enslaved, anyone? That game should have done a lot better). Sure, perhaps 3/10 is "harsh", but the game is VERY buggy, the Steam launch in particular was disgraceful and we really shouldn't stand for that in this day and age. Bugs and glitches ruined Oblivion and Fallout for me.

This game should have been a AAA masterpiece, it has a fantastic premise and I remember being excited about it when I first heard about it in 2007, but it looks to be a major disappointment.

MariaHelFutura2482d ago

Edge shouldn't even be allowed to review video games. They obviously don't like them very much.

Why o why2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )
