The latest EDGE review scores include Super Mario Galaxy 2, Alan Wake, Lost Planet 2, Nier, Split Second and much more.
Weird that they didn't publish the actual Sin and Punishment 2 review in the latest magazine since that's out in Europe now. Anyway, very pleased with Galaxy 2's score. The game is looking just as good as the original, if not better.
Damn I was hoping for a Red Dead score, but whatever. Expected scores from Edge. I thought Galaxy 2 would get a 9 though.
Split Second – 8 Cave Story – 8 WarioWare: D.I.Y. – 8 are better than alan awake :S edge always give 10 to mario game hmm thats the pattern hmm hmm thanks
Mario games are fun, weather you like em or hate me, there always really really fun to play, and inst that the point of any game? To have fun playing it?
Fun is subjective. I've yet to enjoy a Mario game since SMB3, personally.
Honest. I actually feel sad for anyone who can't have fun playing the likes of Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Galaxy, and even Sunshine. Every canon Mario game I've ever played has been fun almost from beginning to end. Galaxy is one of the greatest games of all-time, the scores for it do not lie. Galaxy 2 will certainly be as good; I have no doubts though that many will find it even better.
It's not a matter of "can't," it's a matter of haven't. Some people just aren't into certain type of games. I'm not into racing or sport games, so I don't get enjoyment out of them typically. A lot of people would have said the same thing you just did for me not enjoying GT4 or Forza. I'm not unhappy about not enjoying them, since there are my type of games out there that I do enjoy.
Racing and Sports games aren't nearly as accessible and beloved as Mario and platformers in general. I don't really care for racing or sports games either. So I'm confused then. Are you saying you just aren't a fan of platformers in general? And I honestly find it astounding that you could have fun with SMB3, but not SMW which is 10x the game SMB3 is. As far as platforming goes, Mario is the supreme emperor. Always has and still is, and probably always will be. To not like Mario is to not like the platforming genre.
I'm not a fan of Super Mario platformers. I find them boring to all heck. Give me Prince of Persia 3D and similar platform/puzzle games and I'm in love. But Super Mario has bored the heck out of me.
Um, if you "hate" the game, I am sure it is not "fun" to play. And no, Mario games do not deserve 10's, pure and simple.
But SMW and SM64 were great games.....IMHO Everything after SM64 has been a rehash....Sunshine & Galaxy seems to be more of the SM64 gameplay with new power ups, thats why i got bored with both because i feel i have outgrown (as a gamer) Super Mario games. I mean Come on we have been rescuing Princess Peach for over 25 years now. Any other game would get bashed into oblivion.
Of course it counts, EDGE is biased in favor of 360 games. When a PS3 game scores a 7 on EDGE, and a 360 game scores a 7 on EDGE, it's obvious which is the better game ;)
It honestly looks like they're siding with Nintendo here...SMG2 gets a 10, and Skate 3 gets a 7? WTF?
Yeah, Sin and Punishment 2 already got a 10 from Eurogamer Italy and a 9 from the regular Eurogamer...Super Mario Galaxy 2 is going to be awesome. Wii has crazy awesome scores lately. :)
Galaxy a 10 though?? No game ever deserves a 10 as that would say its perfect and EVERY game always has somewhere it can be improved.
Hmm.. Well I guess I was right back then about Alan Wake: http://n4g.com/news/504289/... But also, they did score 3D Dot Game a 6... :/
Alan Wake (7/10) thats low, while Split Second Review score is great. :D
I'm looking forward to Split/Second as well dude! Btw, since Alan Wake got a 7, it seems a "certain group" on this site can OFFICIALLY stop proclaiming Edge as biased. First they say that Edge are 360 fanboys and now they are Nintendo fanboys smh,the irrational mentaility of fanboys..facepalm/
Edge are bias....only simple minded people would think that a site would be 100% bias ALL of the time or that one anomaly disproves years of trends....damn Anyway here's some data for you to mull over... Lets see if you have a smart ass answer for this then...no offense but your continual belittling of one side wreaks. ALL fanboys are silly not just one sides http://edgevsmeta.blogspot.... please read then get back to us about facepalms
"please read then get back to us about facepalms " I'm still facepalming. It's funny how a certain group is always screaming bias when they give a PS3 exclusive score lower than expected. However, when that same site gives it a high score, all that bias talk is no more.
problem is that alot of sony/playstation sites will give increasingly high reviews which get accepted by metacritic which then inflate the metascores. look around alot of the perfect scores are given by sites with "PS" in their website.
I played the demo and it felt like MW of racing, in the sense I can easily see the next game have tags, upgrades all that. I'd love to have like tag thing when it tells you the three people you just killed. I'd like a kill feed on the bottom left and more of barge system, like wheelman I suppose.... or burnout. Split second is not complicated while not being silly. Multiplayer will end up being good if it down lag.
edge magazine -_-
Don't click the article if you don't like EDGE. -_-
Wats is wrong with this Staff... why Edge, why?
why ? because being negative without much coherence , even withint the confine of their twisted review systems , and without real reasons , is what pass as rebel and edgy .
lot of desagrees... but i dont think Alan Wake, or Lost Planet 2 deserve that score.
I'm waiting for the LBP2 scans!
Are they Nintendo fanboys? SMG2 a 10 but Skate 3, 3D Dot Game Heroes and Lost Planet at 7 or below? Wow. Shouldn't the point of reviewing games be to steer consumers in the right direction? Well, I guess that helps the smaller unofficial sites stick out since many of them have far better reviewers.
Agreed. Small sites will take over this industry sooner than we think. Have you visited the new TheBitbag.com? It just got a MASSIVE overhaul.
Did you actually say that? C'mon dude, respect the king. :)
Super Mario Galaxy 2 more than likely deserves a 10. The first one got tons of 9.5s and 10s, and this one looks to be as good or even better. There is nothing about loving Mario games that makes somebody a fanboy. In fact, you make yourself look simply ridiculous insinuating that SMG is a game people should "steer" away from.
I don't know, jleack, I haven't played these games yet. How did you get to them so early, anyway? You must have some great insider friends. Seriously, though, I was thinking of acquiring a Wii for S&P2, but with SMG2 having its entire score performed by a live orchestra? Sure, there have been games with live musicians before, but this is straight up, everyone-there-at-the-same-tim e-kind-of-music. People are really underestimating how much of an impact this could have - I'm really psyched about what this could mean for the future of video game soundtracks. And go figure that Edge doesn't even mention that. Whatever.
I saw you in the new Ape Escape thread praising that game. Hypocritical...I rather play any Mario game than Ape Escape. But you seem to think Ape Escape deserves more praise than Mario? Get outta town. :0
WTF, it is one of the most amazing adventures i hav ever played The tasteless bastards !!! :) Oh well, it is just one opinion i guess, a very terrible one though They do seem to be near the EDGE of unbelievable stupidity tbh
Edge has the same score as Killzone 2. This means both Fanboy sides can't call the other game shit. Bliss! :D And why no RDR review? ;_;
One word.. Edge. A bunch of sheeps (Nintendo fanboys) they all are. I'm a Sony fanboy and Alan Wake deserves at least an 8. SMG 2 a 10? GTFO!!
I don't understand how an 85 on meta is considered to be destroyed in terms of Reviews.
MMM Edge doesnt like games? Why giving low to good games LOL.
Even split second got a better rating then alan wake ...i thought it was going to be LBP2 FTW
i see all these 6's n 7's and im thinking "ok fine maybe EDGE are old school and they rate games with the real 1-10 rating" BUT THEN i see SMG2 with a 10...but skate, 3D dot and Alan with 7? WTF BULL [email protected] edge are just idiots, and as a gamer i do not think they understand what a GOOD game is not that SMG2 isn't worthy of a 10...but it isn't THAT much better than those 3 games, no-way EDGE = BULLSH!T starting to question why i even bothered coming here....meh
The fact you are so bothered by ratings, come one dude, seriously who would really give a crap?
Let me answer. It's insulting to us as gamers. Look, say Bjorn likes a certain game. Edge hates it, and gives it a 4. It makes us look like we're idiots for liking something that's 'stupid'. Me, I've been playing Disgaea 3 and LOVING IT TO DEATH. I could see them giving it a 4, but as far as I'm concerned, it's one of my FAVORITE GAMES to get lost in on my PS3. :o)
"It's insulting to us as gamers." So what? Sticks and stones. "Look, say Bjorn likes a certain game. Edge hates it, and gives it a 4. It makes us look like we're idiots for liking something that's 'stupid'." Yes, how dare people have opinions that differ from his. How dare they! It only makes you look like an idiot if you subscribe to the notion that somewhere out there there is an objective game rating. "Me, I've been playing Disgaea 3 and LOVING IT TO DEATH." That's fine. "I could see them giving it a 4": And that's also fine. The only issue is when people start working off the mistaken assumption that only one of you is somehow 'right' about how much enjoyment you derive from a purely subjective experience.
The thing about reviews some people write them off as just another persons opinion while others use reviews to gauge game purchases. Review scores tend to also be solid proof of one games worth against another's in a conversation about games. The problem is that reviewers arent always unbiased, thats how you get some outta control scores, not to mention game devs buy good scores as well. (360 swag bags, http://www.news.com.au/tech... ) Best advice is to do your research and come up with your own conclusions and when in doubt RENT. I've given up on movie & game reviews long ago
i was just over expressive...its just sad to see =/ i usually go by my own "opinion" of what i expect of a game (i pre-order a lot) sorry for the exageration =)
alan wake got 7...i knew it lol....edge is a very bad website...i dont give anything about their reviews!
I think maybe Edge are Platformer fanboys, seeing as they gave the Galaxy games and LittleBigPlanet 10s
im really starting to just not care for reviews anymore (unless they are unanimous). its all a persons opinion... they love platformers more so as you said they get better reviews but then people (who want certain games to fail) take their crappy reviews seriously. it all depends on the person, i mean i read the good reviews of alan wake and they think like me, they like the story, the gameplay elements are great and the atmosphere is stellar, they think like me and i like games like HR and alan wake.... im not a huge platformer guy so i didnt like LBP or any of the marios ever. idk its all opinions... in the end im getting alan wake because my review is the only one that matters to me, the only reason i listen to reviewers is if i cant get a feel on a game before release so i see what the general census is so maybe that pushes me over to buy it, but with AW i knew i wanted this game and from all the positive reviews (which people ignore for some reason) im glad i made up my mind a long time ago :P
Alan Wake is total 9/10.
I want whatever Edge Writes Smoke. LBP2 will get 10/10 because its from UK!
nah they are so incoherent and full of crap , that next time , they'll "crush" lbp 2 at 7-8 for BS reasons . Just so they could pretend no franchise and no one owns them . If it's "lack of innovation and originality" , i'll laugh till it hurts
and honestly your comment smells of typical n4g pre release damage control for LBP2 because many already are questioning why a user generated content game needs a sequel at this point, so its obvious that if there's going to be any flaw with a already highly ratedof game like this type it will most liky be that there wasnt much of significance/innovation added by the sequelled. It's not known how that will turn out but your criticism of Edge already about LBP is transparent. If your wrong you'll just proclaim how great it ie even Edge couldn't deny it....if your wrong you really only picked the most obvious flaw a game of this kind would suffer from. JOY
I literally lol we've all seen edges higher than usual marks for games made by UK devs.....other than that your comment smells like pre release lbp2 hate....am i shocked....lol....is it boring...yeah....wtf happened to ur comments anyway...aint you used to having more than 1 bubble or something :) http://edgevsmeta.blogspot.... facts is edge are full of sh!t..spin, deny, attack, defend all you want if you can see why people think edge are full of crap after reading you too, my friend, are more full of it than i thought
@JokesOnYou i know you are one of the typical trolls of ol' , but i must congratulate you for managing to turn this into the usual war propaganda . You'd look far less foolish if at least , i even seemed once to care or even happy , about edge's 9/10 or 10/10 ratings for games i love , like bayonetta. My stance remains the same , be it for 360 or ps3 games , or other platforms , Edge are incoherent posers , making an odd stance once everywhile on a expected and hyped title (be it on ps3 or 360 ) , just so they could seems different , and "edgy".
This site is full of it even game made in their country they score it low.
I've just started on Alan Wake and I dunno but a 7 already feels low for this game. Edge is always all over the place that's why I don't base my game purchases purely on reviews. Really enjoying the game so far..
its how it should be Eff edge anyway....pompous twats
review score= the years spent on the making/10 (each year=1 point)
Lol. I'm sorry...but you guys know I mostly play PS3, right? Alan Wake getting a 7 and SMG2 getting a 10 is blatent disregard for talent.
I stopped reading at "Edge Magazine".
I think EDGE purposely try to be harder on games just to stand out. The data from past reviews does clearly indicate that EDGE favours the 360 and is biased towards its games. I'm surprised they didn't give Alan Wake higher but I suppose they have to make their fanboyism look less obvious. Even though Alan Wake didn't live up to the hype, it is still a great game. I know people think that it should have been better seeing as it was in development for so long. However, it is very hard for any game developer to know how their game will be received. Alan Wake is a bold new direction for a video game so it is hard to know how gamers will respond to something that is different. Heavy Rain was similar in that regard but was still a great game. When a game is attempting something different, it doesn't matter how many years of development there are because until gamers get their hands on it, it is impossible to predict how it will be received. Just look at Too Human and thank God Alan Wake is a better game than that. If AW had technical issues or was under-polished, then that would be a very poor reflection on Remedy given the time they spent developing it but the game does not suffer from technical issues but from repetition and linearity.
i live in England and its rare you see edge on the shelves (due to selling out, doubt it) the mags dying soon it will be on-line only magazine, like my beloved C&VG how I miss thee. I prefer Games Master mag better anyway.
I just read a great article in the pages of the newly-resurrected EGM mag. I do not understand how everyone acts like a number constitutes the bottom-line of every game's look, feel, and play style. As if a game scored an 8 instead of a 9 that that factor alone would determine whether you rent or buy it. Absolutely ridiculous! After all these scores are given out by people, gamers just like you and I that are opinionated to what they personally like and dislike in their games. Reviews serve as a powerful guideline for sure but let's not elevate them to a god-like status. Same goes for metacritic, a powerful guideline, sure, but don't let it go to your head. With that said, it appears that Split-Second may be a worthy title for those seeking an alternative to the Burnout series.
down with numerical scores!
All those complaining about the rating of Alan Wake have you played the game yourself? Or you just assume the game is so good it deserves a higher score?
and I will not be playing it since I don't own a 360, but I was very interested in this game. I am currently actually following a walkthrough of it on YouTube . And unless the controls realy suck (which I can't judge by just watching), this game looks like a solid 9 to me (5 hours in). Must admit that this game is right up my alley though, as Heavy Rain was aswell.
7/10 from EDGE Mag??? I have seen it all now!!! ;-D LBP1 got a 10/10 from EDGE;)
