Here are the latest scores from Edge magazine for games like Heavenly Sword, Warhawk, BioShock, Stuntman Ignition and Medal Of Honor Airbourne: Heavenly Sword - 6 Bioshock - 8 Warhawk - 8
Now this is one seriously mixed up and crazy review. BioShock gets its lowest score and its only below one 9 and the much critisized Warhawk gets the same and 2 points above Heavenly Sword!? Were they on drugs or something? BioShock and Warhawk both getting 8 (While it should be 10 and 8) and Heavenly Sword and Stuntman both getting 6 (while it should be 9 and 6)(IMO).
Edge is pretty well known for their tough review scores though.
I know but MOH Airbourne scoring more than Heavenly Sword and Warhawk and BioShock getting the same score?
It's definitely odd. Let's not forget Space Giraffe getting the same as BioShock.
ZOMG!!! I had not noticed that. I like Space Giraffe but its nowwhere near BioShock! :O
unlike BIOSHOCK it is fun and not boring HS has got some great reviews as well and a 6 on EDGE is like a 8/9 on other websites HS,LAIR and WARHAWK ps3 will own in SEPTEMBER :)
Someone said they gave God of War 2 a 7. Is that true? I'm not sure I care for someones opinion whos that tough. Games aren't essays, they're supposed to be about fun. Any way if anything it prooves Warhawk is a must buy like Bioshock and I already know Heavanly Sword is.
"unlike BIOSHOCK it is fun and not boring" Fanboy alert!! or Idiot alert!!!
an FPS with subpar graphics and has no online thats unacceptable in this gen 8/10 is too overrrated for BIOSHOCK --one of the most boring FPS
I already have them both penciled in for purchase and I am buying them no matter what reviewers will think about them.
GTA F'n Vice city got 8 in this mag. they are HARSH!!!!
Nasim you continue to be the worst poster on this site. I have bioshock on my pc and its graphics blow everything else I have played out of the water. 1920x1200 with 16qx AA is just simply out of reach for either of the home consoles. You are just an idiot plain and simple. It's very sad and scary that people agree with you. Do you not realize that bioshock is one of the highest rated games of all time and for a good reason? You talk about bioshock not being fun yet you don’t own a gaming pc or an Xbox so how the hell would you know and what is the deal with your English are you 10? You haven’t played warhawk either; you have zero credibility and shouldn’t even bother speaking. As for the own September comment why don’t you do some research before making goofy statements like that. I know you as you would put it "hate cartoonishness of the halo" but anyone with half a brain knows that with millions of pre-orders it will out sell everything this year even if it gets horrible reviews. Why god are you not banned EVERYONE hates you, for gods sake you are ignored by 108 users. Stop and look in the mirror kid you are not wanted.
thats it somebody has got to say it.there is something going on?Conspiracy?maybe. HS getting a six.this guy should get fired .lately every sony AAA titles have been getting the short end of the stick.call me fanboy or whatever but microsoft has paid a few people for this it just makes sense.hey i know !drake,socom, gt5prolouge,haze,ut3, all get 6
@VirusE: wow so much hate for Nasim. Why? Because he talks like an extreme fanboy and supports the PS3. You have said it almost twice now that he is ignored by 100+ users. You have also said that Bioshock's graphics blow everything out of the water. And then you call him an idiot. But I never see you do the same thing to the biggest idiot on this site TheMart. He is also ignored by more than a 90 users. He is the most extreme fanboy. He is the one who downplays every good title on the PS3. But I dont see you replying him to shut up. You know why?? Because you are no better than TheMart or Nasim. They are extreme fanboys and so are you. The only difference is in the way they talk and they way you talk. For you its everything about the 360. Atleast Nasim is speaking crap on the PS3 side. Unlike the Mart who is bashing the PS3 on the PS3 side and which is perfectly fine with you because you also have an agenda. I have played Bioshock. I dont think its graphics blow many games out. Examples COD4, KZ2, HS, LAIR, etc. I didnt even bother finishing Bioshock. Why? Because it did feel a lil bit boring. But I maybe wrong and I am getting the full game this weekend. Because I like FPS and this being an FPS and getting perfect scores means that I have to try it. So it doesnt mean I am an idiot for having an opinion. If you think I am then I can say you are one for liking Bioshock. Right? Piece of advice. Keep your mouth shut!!!! Sorry for the rant but this douche gets on my nerves!!!
Have you considered the possibility that the games actually just aren't that good? More parsimonious than weird conspiracy theories...
Ahh kratos i hope you are ready for some ownage you single system fanboy. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... Please be a man and apologize. I hate the mart just as much as I hate nasim you are okay with nasim because he is a sony fanboy like yourself. See the thing is kratos (fanboy name extreme) I own all 3 systems and a gaming pc. I play these on a high quality screen and so when I say bioshock is the best looking game I have played I say it from experience. 1920x1200 with 16xq AA is hard to beat kratos. Do you even know what that means? "I have played Bioshock. I don’t think its graphics blow many games out. Examples COD4, KZ2, HS, LAIR, etc. I didn’t even bother finishing Bioshock. Why?" You need to learn to read. I said bioshock had the best graphics of a game that I HAVE PLAYED. I, like you have not played cod4, kz2 or lair, crysis or ut2007. Quit speaking of things you have zero experience with, like bioshock. Please send me your gamertag so I can see your bioshock achievements or send me a pic of your bioshock directory with you system properties pulled up next to it. What cpu and gfx card are you running? If you would like I can do a side by side of HS and bioshock on my ps 3 and pc. I think anyone who isnt a fanboy will go with the pc. My pc cost 5 times what me ps3 cost and YES it 1000% does have better graphics than the ps3 and the xbox360 for that kind of cash it should. Kratos how many bubbles do you have? hmmmm I think it's time you run upstairs to your moms room and cry on her shoulder.
@VirusE: ok so u proved that u did have a go at the mart. So I apologize. As for the graphics on a ps3 and on a PC thats almost 3 times as expensive as a PS3 I dont think we need to tell us which has better graphics. When I made the comparison I was talking about the XBOX 360 version. My gamertag is DevilsGrave12. If you check my gamercard you will see that i have played only Gears (and a couple of demos) The reason I got a 360 was for GeOW. And I have a preorder for Halo3. I come from India. And the only console we have there is a PS (from the current gen). So naturally I am a big fan. But that doesnt mean I hate the 360 or whatever because then I wouldnt have got it. Second thing I still didnt like Bioshock. But I will play it for sure. And I am not supporting Nasim. I see Nasim as one of the many extreme fanboys like TheMart, POG, FigBoy, and so on and on. But I saw you pick on nasim more than once and never saw u do that to a 360 fanboy and now since u provided me with a proof I apologized. Peace!!! Edit: @below Thank you :) Bubbles for u 2 like u need them!!!
Much appreciated. Sorry for being a d1ck to you, how's about i send a bubble your way and we call it even?
@ nasim Get a life
"Were they on drugs or something? BioShock and Warhawk both getting 8 (While it should be 10 and 8) and Heavenly Sword and Stuntman both getting 6 (while it should be 9 and 6)(IMO)." Are you on drugs or something? I won't comment on Bioshock since it's already out and you might have played it, but how the hell can you attempt to correct someone on their review score for say, Heavenly Sword, when the game is not out yet and you haven't even played it!!?? Just like Lair and Blue Dragon, it's truly disgusting how fanboys thing they KNOW what review scores a game deserves just based on watching hyped up trailers online. Good looking cutscenes DO NOT make a game. Get over it.
Regardless, to put Warhawk and Bioshock on the same level, then throw Heavenly Sword two levels below makes no sense whatsoever. Btw, wtf is Space Giraffe? =|!
Agreed. While BioShock and Warhawk are both great, they don't belong to the same score category. BioShock deserves 10 or at the very least 9. and 6 for HS is downright crazy and MOH getting 7 makes things even more stupid. +Space Giraffe is a cute and fun XBLA game that is most people ignore (But it got 7.5/10 from GameSpot!).
i disagree... I know I will play warhawk more than bioshock, and pry have more fun doing it. I do think if bioshock got a 10 from edge the world would collapse upon itself. I dont get why thats so crazy? The craziest thing is that stuntman has the same value as HS... yeah right.
I think maybe Edge rate their scores within their genre so Bioshock is an 8/10 of FPS whereas Warhawk is 8/10 online multiplayers, doesn't mean they're the same.
Space Giraffe got a 2/10 on OXM and 4.5/10 on team xbox... The game in a futuristic tempest-type arcade game. To give it and Bioshock the same score defies any sane reviewers logic. They aren't even close... If SG is an 8, Bioshock is an 12. Man, these reviews are whacked out.
I'm going to cancel my Bioshock order. :-P
Maybe you should they may not like FPS's and see no difference between BioShock and Duke Nukem. Hell they might not be score whores they might think whats coming in a couple of years may provide games worthy of 10's.
I realize you're joking but Edge giving a low score is nothing to fret about, great games will get 8s and flawed games will get 5s, yet random/unknown games will also get 8s.
That's idiotic. Based on what you said, any publication could rate ANY game a 1/10, and say, "We're giving it this score because we know the 7th entry into the franchise will be spectacular." Wtf? Games are to be reviewed as they are NOW, based on TODAY'S technologies. Heck, [by your logic, again] every game should get a 0.2/10 because we will EVENTUALLY have virtual reality.
Good one Satanas. "yet random/unknown games will also get 8s." Awesome. Space Giraffe is great but no 8 great and certainly not as good as BioShock and better than Heavenly Sword. They say Gamespot is tought and Egde is tougher, how on earth could Space Girrafe get 7.5 from GS while getting 8 from Edge? And I heard one site gave it 6.5 or something!!
Its the IGN's, 1up's etc you want to look at to get mainstream opinions on.
I usually go for IGN/1up too but even they make mistakes, like IGN's review of God Hand.
I find the blond tranny from 1up to be complete annoying and clueless. The he/she is always whining about something...
i think the industry as a whole is having real problems sorting out expectations of next gen games. bioshock is one of the best game i have played this year. 8/10 warhawk is about as good as shadowrun. 6/10 space giraffe is good but very VERY hardcore only. 6-7/10 heavenly sword has good production but like allot of summer movies is a bit shallow. 6-7/10 *this is my opinion only. thank god for spell check !!! ALWAYS REMEMBER PRICE DOESN'T GUARANTEE QUALITY !
Egde gave God Of War 2 7/10 so this means MOH:Airbourne is as good as that masterpiece. Also, Warhawk and Space Giraffe 1 point better than GOW2!?
Lmao..Red, your ability to put things together reminds me of penguins:
Well it just goes to show you that they don't like God of War-type of games hence for the 6/10 for HS.
lol, Good one princetab :) But God Of War 2 and MOH Airbourne getting the same score (7/10) is really not comforting specially for a GOW fan likemyself :( I've now added Edge to my list of useless magazines like EGM and GamePro. So far the only good mag left is GameInformer. (And they gave BioShock the 10/10 that it deserved)
I didn't even know they gave GOW2 a 7 before you mentioned it. Once I read that, I knew they have different preferences when it comes to games. I mean GOW2 a 7 and Bioshock 8? It should be higher than that. Maybe MOH is pretty good but to align it along those 2 is pretty weird. At least I'm glad they gave 8 for warhawk, it deserves that. For HS, I'll just go with my theory that they don't prefer this kind of games so they'll always get a low score.
those combo just makes no sense or whatsoever.
Games with huge production values are considered by reviewers when reviewing average games reviewers reviewing FPS's now or a month ago do try and gadge games like Halo 3 and KillZone 2 so they're not giving average games the same score as high production value games with way more to offer. Stop twisting moron.
I cant wait to see what they give Lair. 2/10 confirmed? No just kidding. Warhawk got what it deserved, it's the most awesome multiplayer game I've played in quite a while. Heavenly Sword is still worthy of 8 in my opinion simply because I fell in love with the combat mechanics.
It was rumored a few weeks ago they gave lair 9/10, if true crazy. http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...
6 is a really pathetic score even for a harsh reviewer.
Ever consider that they purposely give crazy reviews so they can get more traffic in there site. 1up, IGN, and Gamespot are the only reputable game sites I pay attention to.
Wow. So a game that was #2 in scores overall. With various 10s and high 9s. Got an 8? Attention whore magazine anyone?
as in the cutscenes are really nice but the game is meh !
Wait, they didn't even review Lair? =\!
It would be good to read the reviews just to see how these people think. Maybe there is some logic behind the scores....or they could just be pulling them out their azz to get attention.
Weren't Edge the ones who gave God of War 2 a 7/10 ?
I really don’t get why people are so hung up on reviews. If you are going to buy a car, you go out and test drive the thing first then make a decision. Different people like different things. Make your own mind up.
Some people are thinking about buying a PS3 but don't think there are enough good games to justify the $600 at the moment. So obviously they don't have a PS3 to play or "test drive" the demos. That means they would have to read the reviews and look at the scores to see if PS3 has enough great exclusives. If PS3 has a bunch of universally acclaimed games that get just 9s and 10s, then they will consider getting a PS3. If big PS3 titles like Heavenly Blade and Lair keep getting average scores, then PS3 will lose their business... at least for the moment.
ahahahahahahahahahah!!!! Who are these guys???? No more wine for edge magazine!!!!
and i agree with edge. going by the hs demo i would give it a 6-7/10. *this is my opinion only. peace. "there's body's in their ?"
And going by the Bioshock Demo it should get 5/10. See where I am going with it now xbot!!!!
Kratos: You were just sniping people for being fanboys earlier in these posts. Now you go off of the handle calling somebody an Xbot, because they weren't that impressed with a demo? They even said that it was just their opinion. Welcome to extreme fanboyism, I suppose. I think they are both great games and am already enjoying Bioshock and looking forward to Heavenly Sword.
Edge has great writing and design, go read it at your nearest Borders (they sell them in America too). I want to know what the reviewers say. A lot of times they say things that you wouldn't pick up on just by looking at numbers alone. But I do agree with their Warhawk score, it is the best multiplayer game I've played on the PS3... or any console for that matter (PC fps's trump it, although 4 player split screen online with friends in Warhawk keeps it up there).
Guess what game is considered one of the milestones reviewers will be basing their opinions on in the racing genre?. Yep you guessed it GT5 this can very easily influence many reviewers choice making on scoring. Hundreds of examples. [by your logic} reviewers never look at other games or look ahead to gage what they're reviewing. EDIT: By my logic I don't make their choices for them lol. Its not my logic fool!!! its what they might be doing maybe the think it should have Multi player who do fuc cares you would be an idiot if you think games Like GoW etc didn't set standards for some reviewers before it released. It actually hurt PS3(thats just one example).lol " Yes, because series like Midnight Club are exactly the same as the GT series". Nope!, not the same as you stated but reviewers sure do now what to look for to score it possibly looking at what they know from other upcoming games and score accordingly -Example if PGR4 was reviewed today and had no in-car view with the reviewers knowing GT5 did they would score accordingly like Some reviewers did with Forza 2 do you understand yet?.
Yes, because series like Midnight Club are exactly the same as the GT series. Also, by your logic, Bioshock shouldn't recieve 10s and 9s because it's up against the juggernaut Halo.
iam totally confused,form now on i will trust MY OWN REVIEW.
Maybe they are the only magazine to actually hold 10/10 as perfect score and 9/10 as near perfect with 8 being great, 7 as good + 6 as above average. That would explain the scores? By the way if you read the reviews from metacritic about God Hand they are hilarious. The positives in one review are negatives in another its well funny. 1 last thing everyone should get Edge's recent top 100 games special edition magazine as its quality. (although it has no Gears of War or Fallout 1 or 2).
7/10 for God of War 2. God of War 2 is just a good game. Ridiculous. They have absolutely no credibility in my eyes. Edge reviews are a joke.
They don't think these games are that great whats so hard to understand?. BioShock's a FPS and Heavenly Sword's a Hack and slash. Sheesh.
Edge does always score very toughly and they have gave some good games some bad scores for some strange reasons; for instance they gave GoW 2 a 7/10 just apparentyl for being "too long." How can a game like that be TOO long? However their writing and design is of an extremely high standard so i will be interested to see what they say.
There are people who read game reviews and look at the game scores to determine whether they are gonna buy a console (like PS3.) Some people are considering buying a PS3, but they don't think PS3 has enough good exclusives to justify the $500 price tag at the moment. So obviously they don't already have a PS3 to try or test the demos themselves. In that case, they would have to read the reviews and look at the scores to determine whether PS3 has enough great exclusives. If PS3 has a lot of universally acclaimed exclusives that get only 9s and 10s, then they will consider getting a PS3. If big PS3 titles like Heavenly Blade and Lair keep getting average and mediocre scores, then PS3 will lose their business... at least for the moment. So the advice of "try the demo for yourself" is a moot point for those people. Are they supposed to go out, drop $500 on a console just to "try the demos for themselves," and then find out they hate the game just as the critics did?
lol when I read your 1st post (16.1) I was like...hmmm "Heavenly Blade" sounds like BS3 has an alt account. now after seeing the signature BS3 "Repeat-Post" (the same post reposted further down with a couple lines tacked on at the end, you know, just incase you missed it the first time..) you must be changing people's lives by drumming out the same mantra 2-3 times per topic? your my hero thats for sure. I hope you are aware that alternate accounts are against the N4G guidelines ;)
you right. they are on drugs.. addrenochrom or something :-) a 6 for gameplay is tooo bad. its never so bad..
i think the bioshock and warhaw ratings are correct. i played bioshock, its a nice game, especially at the beginning. but then it becomes only to a go and kill game, very repetitive and everything is scripted, this game has no AI! i cant understand how game mags could give it a 10 ? but i had fun with the game, but it becomes very repetitive. on the other side warhawk is a game with very good gameplay, it becomes not as repetitive, it has good graphics and very large maps. imo i would put it a little above bioshock. and a 6 for hs, i think its to little for this title. its hack and slash, not my type of game, but i enjoyed the demo, i think it is better than a 6.
it tries to please nobody. tells the truth. doesn't sell that well. (i subscribe) it is the only mag left that won't throw 9's and 10's about. a 9 is amazing. a 10 is perfect. remember this. an edge 7-8 is a really good game. a 6 is above average. a 5 is good but not great ###average i'm sure allot of people have had great fun with a 5-8 game. a resent one for me was EDF 2017 "we did it !" "WE KICKED THEIR ALIEN BUTTS !"
the shoe is always bigger than the size shown. Ill review it myself. Heres my personal scailing shadowrun (360) 7 God of war 8 God of war 2 9 Bomberman (360) 7.5 Bomberman Gamecube 9 Okami 9+ Farenhiet (indego P) 9+ RFOM 9 Motorstorm 8 FF xII 7+ FF vII 9+ Half Life 2 9 Half life 9+ The Darkness 7 point im easily pleased and can find pleasure from more games than some of my people do. People who tend to go by what reviewers say TRULY miss out on some GREAT games. With demos we are given a better choice. Take advantage of that fact. The problem with some reviewers is that they play too many games and suffer from reviewing burnout or status quoism. Im sure some of us would like to review games for a living but i used to think working in an arcadia was gunna be kool until i tried it (many many eons ago) another point PLAY GAMES and remember how many times a game that you loved or enjoyed got slated and vice versa just think they cannot always get it right for every individual because we are all different.
