This month’s EDGE review scores are as follows include Luigi’s Mansion 3, The Outer Worlds, and more.
Yikes. A 5 for afterparty. Not doing so good
I've only read ONE review from Edge and that was over a decade ago for RE5. Now RE5 didn't exactly do for me that say RE7 or RE2 Remake did but it was a solid action shooter. But the particular reviewer came off as a pompous blow hard that just made me disconnect from her review.
It's why I stopped reading them or going to Barnes and Noble to pick it up. At first it came across as intellectual. With good interviews, discussion about technology, etc. Which was great. But then you could see that there was this certain air of arrogance and pompous behavior. Like they were supposed to be elite reviewers. And their number scores were questionable during last gen. Add in the cost of the magazine that was already expensive for what it was and that was the end of me buying it. I started to use more of the internet to look for game information. Not necessarily reviews.
You know Apocalypse my experience is almost verbatim to your's! Down to getting them at Barnes and Noble to really enjoying the overall quality of the mag but then it did appear that they had a very high regard for themselves! I first found the mag in 03 I believe at my local On Cue(loved the store because I lived in a small town and it was like mana) and found it enjoyable then. The RE5 review though had the woman saying it was terrible of Capcom to have the virus infect Africans (I'm not kidding) and with 4 she had no issue because they were Spaniards and that wasn't offensive! Crazy shit that came off with a very elitist vibe!
Maybe it didn't fit her narrative. And I'm black. I figured if these created viruses can infect white people, it can infect black people and everyone else. Truthfully, I would have liked to have seen an RE scenario set in Tokyo or somewhere abouts just to see something different but an area that Capcom would be familiar with to design the game.
Indivisible – 6 Luigi’s Mansion 3 – 7 Seams credible,.. not
They give Luigis Mansion 3 a 7 and give Kine a 9. WTF are they smoking. LM is amazing certainly worth a nine in my eyes. Glad I stopped buying this crap mag years ago, I’m surprised it’s still going.
EDGE magazine still exist?
Wonder if they finished these games before reviewing 🤔🤦🏻♂️ 😂
They gave Bloodborne a 10 before finishing it. Nobody seemed to care then for some reason. If you think every 10 The Witcher 3, MGSV or Breath of the Wild received was from a reviewer with a completed save file, then you're out of your mind. Oh and Luigi's Mansion 3 has simplified the combat from Dark Moon and removed the leveling system making cash hunting almost pointless unless you're bad at the game and need to purchase assists. That's enough to take it from an 8 down to a 7 in my book.
Luigi's mansion 3 gets 7 out of 10? At least an 8 in my book. Edge you have ZERO credibility from me. I hope you go bankrupt!
