It gave Lair 90%!

And the same magazine also gave 10/10 to Heavenly Sword, Ratchet & Clank Future, and Uncharted - *ALL* of them!

I looked up Play Magazine's review history at Metacritic, and I discovered that the magazine has NOT given any Xbox 360 game a 10/10, not one, not recently since August. NOT BioShock. NOT Halo 3. NOT The Orange Box.

Yet Play gave 10/10 to at least three PS3 games during the same period.

Hm. Strange... very suspicious.

P.S. Nice story image.

I look forward to see if the 360 camp will sink as low and the Sony boys

I thought conspiracy theories were reserved for Sony fanboys

iceice1233887d ago

There isn't one. You give Lair a 9.5 and ME an 8.5 and all other PS3 games a 10 it is painfully obvious they're biased.

I thought this was already common knowledge.

Ratchet and Clank & Uncharted both perfect 10's?

Epic Lulz.

Their PS3 fanboys or they were paid off by Sony.

Any freakin mag that can give that giant piece of crap Lair a 9.5 is total garbage.

360 owners BOYCOTT THIS MAGAZINE!!! Let's get a petition going quick!

explain G4's and gamespots X360 Killzone devs said:u pay the reviewer more money the more likely that game will get a better review score & u know what that would lead too: more sales...but yet it seems like play mag pefers PS games...i doubt that they're getting paid though..but i must agree that lair doesn't deserve a 9.5 maybe a i said R&C doesn't deserve a 7.5(GAMESPOT)

but you xbots r just mad cause this review destorys the average score of Mass Effect, so it ain't a triple A period haha, i'm just saying by ur beliefs Xbots. but ur beliefs are wrong cause a review is a persons opinion of the game...but don't believe me this is not a AAA.

I am sorry, but 10's for every ps3 game, and low grades for every xbox game.

sheng long3887d ago

play magazine goes way back, didn't they used to be gamers republic?
I actually agree with the 8.5 given to ME, what did they give to bioshock? the game truly deserves a 10/10, but if they gave it a 9 or 9.5 then it's still a great score.

ktchong3887d ago (Edited 3887d ago )

But do you agree with Play Magazine giving 9/10 to Lair and 10/10 to Heavenly Sword?

9.5. To Lair.

Play Magazine does give out 10/10... but just not to any Xbox 360 game, obviously.

It's okay to give 8.5 to Mass Effect. There are currently about 5 magazines/sites that give a score below 9 to Mass Effect. (5 out of 38 sites.) However, the weirdest thing is that Play is NOT known for having a high standard. Play is NOT like GameSpot or Edge (those guys are harsh - but they are some of the respectable sites. You have to respect GameSpot and Edge for being consistently harsh.) But Play actually gave 9.5 to Lair, and then a series of 10/10 to all recent PS3 exclusives. During the same time, it did not give a single 10/10 to any Xbox 360 games. Not even one. Not even BioShock or Orange Box. Don't you think that's just... unusual?

AnalFace3887d ago

Well.... sometimes you have to take it. lol

ChronoTrigger873887d ago

a 9.5 for Lair isn't. lol lair was not even close to being a 8.5 forget a 9... so yes, even though im a ps fan, this score for ME is bogus.
