Couldn't find these elsewhere.

PSP - Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops - 7
Wii - Elebits - 7
Wii - Far Cry Vengeance - 3
Wii - Ennichi No Tatsujin - 4
Wii - Kororinpa - 6
360 - Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 - 5
360 - Earth Defence Force 3 - 6
PS3 - Full Auto 2 - 5
PS2, PSP - Free Running - 7
DS - Final Fantasy III - 6
DS - Kirby: Squeak Squad - 7
PC - Sam and Max Ep 2 - 6

Main features are about PC gaming, and it's relative lack of media recognition in spite of the huge number of people playing games on them.

But the again. EDGE chose FFXII as GOTY 2006, so I can forgive them.

Bingo.
And them reviewing only one PC game in a month is a great illustration of that point.

If you accept Twilight Princess as a 9 and Gears of War as an 8 (which I think it got in Edge) a 7 for anything doesn't = bad.

MGS closers:
"It's a superb fit for it's format, and despite it's frustrations is never less than absorbing, but a thorough rethink of the interface and the implications of it's innovative design might have made it effortlessly so, and turned it in to the standard-bearer PSP needs"

Add a 1 to EDGE scores and they seem to jive with the general concensus. They're just a little harder on games, that's all.

Once again, EDGE scoresystem != IGN/Gamespot/whatever scoresystem

A 6 in EDGE is actually 'decent' while a 7 means 'good'. So yeah, I think they scored those games fairly (though MGS:PO could've been an 8).

Add a 1 to EDGE scores and they seem to jive with the general concensus. They're just a little harder on games, that's all.

They're not necessarily harder on games, they just use the 1-10 range for what it should be (6 being decent and worth a purchase). Unlike most other media where a game is only worth it if it scores at least an 8.

EDGE has always been harsh with scores. Go and check out their online review scores database over here:

Free Running seems to be interesting, may look for that one.

Lovely scores all around (Far Cry Wii = 3/10 :lol).

So very true on the PC gaming part. Thousands of people were lining up at midnight for Burning Crusade, millions are playing WoW and gaming media totally and I mean TOTALLY ignore that. They just don't see it.

They dont say. There's just a camo-like background (looks like a closeup of shinkawa artwork) with a huge "4" (same font used for the MGS4 title) on it.

Believe me. It's it ;)

I must be blind, cos I see no "4" on that page. I'm not a MGS fan though, so I may not see subtleties.

Man, its definatly MGS4 exclusive, that is awesome. I just scanned the image, enchanced it, and pasted the 4 font from the official logo, and it fits like a glove.

Im trying to identify the art now.

For the 360 they only released good games so far, and more good titles will be coming in the future. Those games will also be released on the PS3... If you're a Wii owner there is reason to complain, otherwise, I don't see many reasons to complain. (read= none)

Micro-transaction is done by a lot of companies... it's not specifically Ubisoft.

Yeah ok, the whole Nintendo support sucks... that may be true

But Splinter Cell on 360 was not a bad game. The visuals may not be "WOW O-o"
But it was not bad either.

No it does not. Most reviews contradict your opinion, and the fact I own the game and quite enjoyed the single-player contradict it as well.

The PSP part... well yeah, maybe it was easy money making. But which company doesn't make mistakes.

Anyway, I'll let you guys complain, suit yourself. I'll be playing GRAW2 and Assassins Creed this year while you guys will be complaining.

SC:DA 360 is also extremely inferior to it's current-gen counterparts.
