But they are. They use more numbers of their review scale than most other publications.

Nah they only use integers, reviewers that use decimal points are clearly more accurate.

The fact they don't use decimal points actually makes them more credible.

Unless someone can actually make a credible argument for how you can objectively determine if a game deserves an 83 rather than a 84.

Edge are loosing their edge this couple of years. I am used to trust their review in 6th and 7th gen era.

But gladly we now have metacritic and other sites to compare.

True. Amazon's aggregate score is very informative for example.



anyone else kind of tired of review wars? sometimes i think people care more about reviews than enjoying games.



I love everyone disagreeing with SOTs score yet on Meta the game averages 7s every where else..
Maybe its not Edges problem on rating SOTs, maybe it just underscored other games.

Have you read the review? Is it out of touch beacuse of their arguments or because thier score it's not what you expected?

And what's the meaning of reviews anyway? To present an argumented opinion or to confirm your own personal bias?

A review is just a review , no words or  argument can describe and representing  a quality games.  If your reason defending EDGE because they are good at building words to describes games, then KOTAKU are far better  because they even are not using score point and honest with their review.

So my answer,  Edge are good at making stories, like a poem but it doesn't matter if the poem are good or bad, as long it bias and out of touch it will still be an out of touch stories and review, period. 

The fall of mighty giant EDGE

No no no! That makes too much sense for these people to get. Sorry.

I dont agree or disagree, but I find it funny how it relates with Jeffs opinions on giantbomb. lol
