EDGE reviews Mario Galaxy 2... Oh dear

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - EDGE reviews Mario Galaxy 2... Oh dear

EDGE gave a non-PC, non-HD, non-FPS game a 10?

If anyone needs me I'll be looking out my window for The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse... surely we are at the end of days now?

so it does nothing to redefine the genre but it still got a ten if this was a ps3 game it would get two points deducted for that?? I am sorry but Edge really have lost it they really are not very consistant with their reviews...

 

HAHAHA! Sorry buddy, but Edge is NOT biased against the PS3. They have given 10/10 to 12 games, including

 

GT1

The PS3 version of Orange box (despite it sucking)

GTAIV

Little Big Planet

Bayonetta

if you say so

 

You: Edge is biased against the PS3 because I said so

Me: Edge is not biased against the PS3 because of this reason

You: Edge is biased against the PS3 because I said so

 

I'm sorry, but unless you put forward an actual argument, no-one is going to listen to you. What makes you think that Edge is biased against the PS3?



how can these guys give it a 7!!!!!!!!!!!!... a 10? a 10?
I'm assuming that number next to the review is the score, right?

1 PS3 Exclusive game, not trying to contradict your statement, just clarifying these scores. Bayonetta and Orange Box were tested on the Xbox, EDGE scores are transferable across platforms (i.e. they don't test it on both).

 

They are willing to give the PS3 version of a game a high score because the PC and 360 versions of the game are good? Sounds like they can't hate the PS3 that much. The fact is, edge gives much more favourable reviews to the PS3 and other Sony consoles than metacritic does

 

Games in top 12 that are avilable on a Sony platform

Edge: 5

Metacritic: 4

 

Games in the top 12 that are available on the PS3

Edge: 4

metacritic: 1

 

Games in top 12 that are available exclusively to Sony platforms

Edge: 2

Metacritic: 0

 

Games in the top 12 that are available exclusively to the PS3

Edge: 1

Metacritic: 0

 

That convincing enough?

“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

Great score for a game from a magazine that has been under fire lately because of certain low scores...



- THIS QUOTE RIGHT HERE -
It’s hard, but for the best reasons, earning the right to frustrate through the sheer quality of its ideas. The increased difficulty is merely a by-product of the new knots in which the designers want to tie your brain.

That desire to experiment is this astonishing game’s most dangerous achievement. As the adventures soars onwards, its various spaces become increasingly warped, and the final levels switch the emphasis from perfecting the 3D platformer to deconstructing it. Mario is rubbing up against the limits of the form as much as the edge of the universe here, and you’ll see worlds where ledges hang sparse in the air, and where ghosts plucked from the entire sweep of videogame history emerge in half-familiar clumpings of cubes or a nimble arrangement of switches.

Well deserved! Well deserved!! Super Mario Galaxy is the only game on the Wii holding it's ground to it's previous installments in my opinion. The only game where the creativity and quality of Nintendo really has excelled. The only game in the whole "beginning to go stale" Mario franchise that has brought something completely new and fresh to the table and done it amazingly well, for both core AND casuals to enjoy. Super Mario Galaxy is the best game this generation, no doubt, and Galaxy 2 seems to be just as amazing, or maybe even better!

Nintendo, these two games make up for all the (to me) disappointments you have brought this generation. You're creativity is unrivaled.



Just read the whole review.

It was very well-written.
