Review scores from the 214 issue of EDGE. Notable titles include Super Street Fighter IV, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, Monster Hunter Tri and more.
8 for SC is pretty good considering its coming from Edge. Although I think it will likely average out at around 90-92 when all the reviews are in.
From what I've played in the demo Conviction is more a 8/10 game. Better graphics would probably have pushed it into the 9+ zone IMO.
Aren’t Edge usually very actuate when comparing their scores of 360 exclusives to Metacritic? I don’t buy the whole conspiracy argument against the PS3, however the evidence for Edge reviewing exclusive games differently probably justifies peoples suspicion. SC:C will probably actually get a meta of 80-85. @ Cold Maybe that or if they had included their Spy v Merc’s multiplayer. That’s still one of my best experiences in gaming.
I don't get it, they give a crappy ASSSSSSS game DOA paradise 6 yet FF13 got 5?
yeh, i mean i can't review it myself because i haven't played it yet but from video's and playing the demo it seems a solid 8. imo it doesn't do anything outstanding to push it into the 9's. of course my opinion may obviously change when i get to play the game
FFXIII is particularly bad IMO, Graphics 9, sound 7(compared to other FF's) gameplay 4(good but disgracefully repetitive) story 4(overdrammatic and sh*t characters, nothing memorable)
Dead or Alive Paradise (PSP) - 6 strikes me as WAY too generous. Better than Final Fantasy XIII? Really? But I see I'm not the first to make this comment... So, how about this: Same score as Mega Man 10? REALLY!?
and 8 isn't that good....not compared to what they usually give =/ thats why i'm not trusting edge on this one and waiting, i'm sure it'll get better than 8
Thank Heaven whomever reviewed Metro 2033 didn't do what a lot of others did and rank it just based on the PC graphics. The game isn't very good, IMHO, and I hate seeing scores of 9/10 or higher for the game. It's just not at all deserved to get that type of score from anyone.
They gave DOA an entire 6? Seriously? They seriously think it's on par with Mega Man 10 and Metro 2033? Someone over at Edge must have been fapping to it and got generous. But this is the sort of crap I expect from EDGE.
<--- Wow, even I'm surprised SSF4 got the highest score lol But theres not that much stuff out this month anyway
this game must suck!! getting an 8 from edge on an xbox exclusive is like getting a 5 on ign, 1up, gamespot watever...
The SCC demo was pretty fun. Seems an 8 is well deserved.
Splinter Cell and God of War 3 got the same score. Edge being Edge. Good Scores.
That dead or alive paradise got a 6. what a joke. By edge standards it should have gotten 1.
Bah they're the kind of guys that give a game like Mass Effect 7/10 and FF13 a 6/10
Now we cross scores from different genres? When did gamers start doing this?
"Splinter Cell and God of War 3 got the same score. Edge being Edge." I'm not sure what you're implying with that statement?
you are trolling and knowing trolling you are failing.
They also gave ME2 a 9/10... seems about spot on if you ask me. I believe only the true fans of RPGs would have given ME a 9/10 or higher, myself included. While the story, setting, and some gameplay elements were made for RPG fans in ME, I can definitely see taking points off for the action gameplay, loading elevators, graphics, and glitches.
Where we give low scores on most games to generate traffic and get away with it.
this means that SCC got a 9, and super street fighter 4 got a 10, i hated the original SF4, i beat it on hard mode on my first try and it was my first time playing any street fighter ever...then i played on easy mode after i beat hard mode and easy was impossibly hard for me, i couldnt beat it, lol
Edge are full of it they must review a game and if they dont like the series they bad mouth it there not professional there muppets out to brake developers hard work MONSTER HUNTER 3 7/10 u must be kidding thats a game u have to play for at least 10 hours plus to form a proper opinion for a review total unprofessional if u ask me the game got 5 10/10 in japan now we have an improved version with 70 monsters not including all the eco system that allows these extra monsters to go about there buisness in there own way as well as a 200 hour single player and endless online with wii speak and dlc/side quests im pumped for this game it got 91% on ONM and they dont favouritise wii games they have let me down loads of times but they have been right all the time so unlike playstation magazine that just gives 100/100 to any game thats as big as MH3 on there consoles ONM are realistic so i say that its a 9/10-9.5/10 on average but EDGE are the worst reviewers this gen FULL STOP WHO AGREES
So Dead or Alive is actually a 7 everywhere else! Funny it racked up a lot of 2's! Street Fighter 10 everywhere else. SF hasn't been a 10 since SF2 original! Your logic is flawed! That rule only applies with PS3 exclusives, they mark up 360 exclusives and multiplats that the media compares to PS3 exclusives(Bayonetta, DI)! MGS4 is an 11 based on Edge review!
Edge is full of sh!t, but its good to know SC turned out to be good.
Like you said, "Edge is full of $hit"! We don't know anything yet! I'm sure it will be good though.
i wonder when the embargo for SC:C on the website reviews will be lifted with the game releasing next week
i have been told that today the embargo lifts - at least for ign anyways
gdgd. in general i know whether i wanna get a game or not and already ordered SC, but it's still nice to see reviews first
wars finally simmer down with MGS4, GOW III And SC: C getting a 8...
Which is why they gave (Super) Street Fighter 4 a 9, and yet another "tom clancy game that more closely rips off hitman" an 8. Congratulations, you tools.
SSF4 is innovative? Give me a break. and so what if SCC rips off Hitman a little bit IO haven't done anything to appease Hitman fans. Its got co-op and other bits too. I join you, Corrwin in giving a golf clap to EDGE As it reeks of bull.
Retribution a 6? I must admit none of the Retribution news gets any attention here. I searched for Dead to Rights and all the articles failed to hit 10 degrees! I wasn't interested in Retribution, however I thought it might be a decent game (April is a dry month for me), but I guess not. Luckily there are a ton of games coming out next month!
I'm glad Super street Fighter 4 got a 9. I'm disapointed that Dead To Rights Retribution got a 6. But then again, it's coming from edge.
The reviews arent really that bad? Monster hunter tri must be an amazing game to get a 7 from edge! But DOA: paradise a 6? Thats a little high imo
Soooooo.....Dead or alive paradise and resonance of fate both get equal scores...hmmm
w00t Awesome Splinter Cell score. Can't wait until Monday night!!
SCC - 8 not AAA after all.
DOA Paradise got a 6, what happened to high standards? LMAO. It should have gotten a 3 or a 4. What a joke.
Good score for Conviction. Metro got slaughtered though. Then again we all know what to expect from these scum.
Rofl super street fighter 4 got the score it vastly deserves . Problem is as usual by Edge's so called standards , and given the scrutinity and crap they give to some titles (more on ps3 , but still for 360 as well as seen with Mass effect 2's 7/10) , Super stret fighter 4 should have been a 6 in their mag . That is if they were honest and coherent . Instead as usual they'd tear appart one high profiled title surrounded by some controversity or apprehension , all for the sake of looking edgy and "elitist" , and pimp the hell out of the usual popularity and marketing darlings .
Need I say more. -End statement
this is what the hype was about lol
so splinter cell not AAA
Review scores don't determine AAA status. a game must have a high budget in order to be AAA.
edge loves the 3fixme and inflates its scores of 3fixme exclusives. graphics are alright, though.. if it were a ps2 game.
this magazine is really a joke XD DOA > FFXIII HAHAHAHAHAHA that`s is too much too be true XD
buying megaman 10 once i finish 9 (MM9 really is a brutal little sh*t!) two copies of SSFIV (one for PS3,the other for 360...ensuring cross platform pwnage!) monster hunter tri ( about time something good came out for the Wii!) Splintercell (liked the demo so ill buy)
How much money is M$ paying them for these articles? I remember when they gave killzone 2 a 7 saying its not innovating while halo 3 is.
This month; Red Steel 2 - 7 last month; Final Fantasy XIII - 5 Really Edge!, Really! They obviously didnt put much game time into FF. Iv just completed it with 77hours on the clock, absolutly amazing game, loved everything about it and the post game free roam and expanded crystallarium is the icing on the cake for me. I will easily be well over 100+ hours before im done with it. Its at least a 9/10
You want a non biased ff13 review? Then go here: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The reason IGN gave SCC a 9.3. Because of a few minor minus's. And a level that didn't seem to fit. But if you consider the story line, it does fit. http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/...
The only minus's was minor. And a level that felt it did not fit well. Yet it fits the story line. http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/...
