Dragon's Dogma – 7
Prototype 2 – 8

the hell is this?

its Edge trying to be "clever"
EZMickey  +   1215d ago
It's Edge trying to be 'Edgey'.

You... You get it? Edgey? Their name is Edge. Derp.

Okay that joke might be lame, but you know what I find hilarious? If you look at the aggregate score for Prototype one and two on Metacritic it's virtually the same. Reviewers commend and condemn basically the same triumphs and faults of the first one. Seriously.

I know Edge are normally ridiculous at reviewing but prototype 8 doesn't seem unreasonable given its just 'consume x' for most of the game. Great fun though. And is Dragons Dogma deserving of more than a 7, given you haven't played it?

why are there always people holding out some hope for Edge ?

Either you buy their koolaid or you dont . It's edge pretending to be "edgy" and difficult .

Assuming Prototype 2 is a bad game.

Prototype 2 was actually quite enjoyable. I went 100% myself. My personal GOTY so far.

I'm a low class because I like games that I happen to enjoy? Right. Must suck limiting your choices to whatever bandwagon you follow.

I'd rather be a gamer in any form than not be a gamer like yourself.

@kingdavid

WTF does that mean? It could simply be a sandbox game more suited to his tastes. Heck, Eiffel has a review (still on the front page) on why he liked the game so much.

...easy to see that excuses like "edge are more harsh, not biased toward ps3 exclusives" are completly wrong..

7,9,8,9,8,6,7,7,8,5,5 = 7,18 average, with some really poor games....

Mario Tennis Open gets a 7?

Eh...I'll take it. I love that series and I'll be getting this one. :)

anytime there is a story about edge scores, i hesitate clicking on the source link, saying to myself "which good game is going to get a 5/10, this month?"
Bimkoblerutso  +   1215d ago
Looks like it was Flibble - Flick 'n' Roll this month.

Edge strikes again.
RohanLee  +   1215d ago

Edge Reviews for other celebrated RPGs

Witcher 2 - 6
Fallout 1 - 6
Fallout 3 - 7
Fallout: New Vegas - 6
TES III: Morrowind - 6
Diablo I - 7
Diablo II - 6
Dragon Age: Origins - 5
Arcanum - 5
The Witcher - 5
Vampire: Bloodlines - 6
Mass Effect - 7
Temple Of Elemental Evil - 4

nothing that is not elder scrool or Souls desve at least an 8.
In this list we can see some of the best RPGs of the last 15 years, there is even the best Elder Scrool IMO, so a 7 judging by this list its very very good for Dragon Dogma
portugamer  +   1215d ago
looks like if a studio wants edge to give a good score, they need to send 3 escort girls, so the reviewer is a bit happier, while playing the game.

it's the only way i see, for edge to give a 9/10 to a game.
Skateboard  +   1215d ago

Everyone has an opinion, but a 6 for the Witcher 2? Yeah, I'd rather not read that dudes opinion on games ever again.
coolbeans  +   1215d ago
This is (unfortunately) where the whole "Edge is biased" conspiracy is cranked up to eleven. They never post which person on the editorial team actually created the review.
