This month’s EDGE reviews include a tough verdict for Ghost of Tsushima, Ninjala, and more.
ghost of tushima - a 6/10 I reckon that's a bit harsh, for a masterpiece of a game, & a disrespect to all the people that worked hard on making it.
Well, I hope this doesn’t stop you from getting the game. I’m patiently waiting for my collector’s edition to arrive. As a community we have to stop giving these reviewers too much power when it comes to reviewing these games. Some hold their “opinions” like its the “begin all and end all.”
True, but expecting some damn consistency, and at least an attempt to check bias isn't asking too much.
I think there's enough incredibly positive reviews out there for you not to worry about its' quality. 40/40 from Famitsu and many more 9s and 10s. A handful of low reviews says to me that it either grabs people or it doesn't. Seemingly no in between
Edge goes for clicks
A publication without a website goes for clicks...
It's not harsh or disrespectful. It's a person's opinion. Just because people work hard on something doesn't mean it should get positive reviews by default. I don't know why so many people have such issues with this concept; Reviews are subjective, that's the point. Just because it doesn't align with your views doesn't make it bad or harsh or disrespectful or whatever.
People saying opinion can't be wrong as it's just personal thing but come on a 6/10. IS. Plain. Wrong. Simple. And I know edge are known for being very hard with scores. But this takes the biscuit.
I never listen to reviews. I formulate my own opinions on games by watching trailers and gameplay. Then I’ll decide if it’s a game for me. Ghosts, definitely a game for me.
Purple what do you mean it's an insult? It's an opinion and in this person's first hand experience it's a 6. Also, how do you know it's a masterpiece? Are you basing that on your first hand experience with the game?
Yeah let's just all smile and pretend everything is perfect just so we don't insult the team who willingly spent the last 6 years making it. /s Why even have reviews if you're just gonna get mad everytime someone disagrees with your opinion?
How about these reviews actually reviewing the game and not bring their reputation into it. Edge is know for being harsh just like Gamespot so these publications have a reputation to protect Of overall is 85/100 and this person says it's 60/100 than this person's opinion is what you will call wrong or trying to be harsh to stand out. Don't believe me look at YouTubers they saw the praise being given you TLOU2 and they wanted the clicks so they hated on it and when they were called out they had no legit ground to stand on(btw I am with YouTubers on TLOU2) but doesn't change facts I saw how few went out of their way to please vocal minority
That's the joke. His opinion isn't wrong. It's his opinion. I myself find I don't enjoy many games everyone else praises like BOTW. Don't expect everyone to follow the herd. Even his opinion is only 2 points lower on the scale compared to most others, if he wanted to stand out he would've done much worse. Speaking of BOTW, I still remember how on this site, even the slightest criticism article was met with slander for daring to speak out against it's flaws. It's like why bother even doing honest reviews or pieces if everyone just wants the same opinion to reinforce their own with?
Its a good game but no masterpiece.
Wouldn't say masterpiece. That phrase should be reserved for the top 10 games of this generation.
Not sure how disliking something is the same as disrespecting something. And I say that as someone who loves the game.
All I know is that Famitsu gave it a perfect score and they are THE Japanese reviewers. I'm looking for an authentic samurai experience and it seems like this is what I will get.
yes but witcher 3 you can open a chest if you do that in ghosts its "nothing new"
Unfortunately many gamers don’t think to care about this. They’re becoming very simplistic. I’m with you brotha
Not to take anything away from GOT, but if you've known Famitsu for the last decade and a half, they tend to easily give games high scores. They admitted many years ago in an article that they do not score games based on their own observation as a reviewer based on the pros and cons. Instead they think about what the general consumer may feel about the game. Additionally, they consider how it would affect sales if an genuine bad score was given. To me that defeats the purpose of being a professional game reviewer The article: https://www.google.com/amp/...
yep 6/10 meaning game is no good which is rubbish. in comparison edge will give games with lesser gameplay etc a higher score. cant wait for ps5 to release it must pain these animals so much
6/10 is where Crackdown 3 landed. You can just look at a few videos of GoT and see that it's not a Crackdown 3.
They gave it a 5 though so Edge don't think the games are the same in terms of quality.
@ Looper Lol man go play some of that "slightly worse crackdown" as you so subtly imply or some shit.
I already played the campaign and finished it. I'd give it a 7 personally. But that's me.
Calm down a bit. This game has the same Metascore as inFamous 2. Not everyone has to like a particular game.
IMHO inFamous 2 is the best in the series
Lol some people are pathetic. They skip the articles with the high scores for ghost but soon as it gets a 7 or lower they flood in to celebrate it. These are literally grown men acting like children. Best time to be a gamer and this is what they rather spend their time doing. Losers...
Funny thing is most of the comments are from you and your friends complaining about the review.
I don’t see anyone celebrating this review score
Where are these celebrations? Seems like you're taking someones opinion on a game waaaay too seriously.
The game does have notorious clipping at some points but most of the issues should be ironed out with a day 1 patch.
Edgey magazine at it again. Don't let yourselves get cut on those sharp edges on the way out.
I’m still in the beginning but I can say, without a doubt, that this is some of the most fun badass combat I have ever played in a game. It makes you feel like a bad mf. I haven’t played enough to discredit a review as there is more to a game than visuals, sound, (which are both awesome) and glorious combat. Might need to find a covid positive person and get these two weeks off work. 🤢🤢😷 28567;🎮🎮
Watching videos before the reviews, there wasn't much to write home about. Strip away the graphics, it was a typical play from the map hacking and slashing game, which has been done many times over. That doesn't bother me. It's not a day one purchase game for me, so will pick it up cheap used. Same with God of War, Gears of War, Uncharted and The Last of Us to name a few. 6 out of 10 is above average. But how many games in the history of gaming have been over scored? Thousands.
I used to be an avid fan of Edge, but the amount of games I probably missed out on because of there harsh reviews put me right of em in the end. I'm surprised they gave the amazing TLOU 2 a 9/10. I did expect a silly score from them to be honest. Now with regards to ghost of Tushima, I will buy it but not till later in the year.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey with samurai & wind instead of traditional markers/waypoints. I'll buy it when I get my PS5 next year.
edge just doin what edge do....sucking
