Nice! Arms and Injustice scoring high. I'm surprised at the Tekken score. Wasn't it very highly reviewed generally?

Star Trek bridge crew is the first real VR demonstrator since Keep Talking... imo. Great that it scores highly.

Arms [9]
Injustice 2 [8]
Tekken 7 [6]

Nintendo once again entering a genre as a freshman and schooling.

I don't see any score here that can be brushed away, espescially without reading the written review.

Both games have significantly more content than arms if that's the argument.

They have substantial weight in metacritic and are one of the harshest critics typically. Largely why people take notice of their scores.

I hate NRS games and I think Tekken is a fun enough series but I understand the review scores having read the reviews. Injustice 2 is a much better single player game and EDGE writers have never been into the competitive scene for fighting games.

It's so bent that I have to bend it the other way while I am reading it so that the odd numbered pages are legible. So yah dude.

Lol, Edge.

Content wise Tekken 7 could be much better but the shitty "arcade endings" are really hurting it.

The Arms review was quite fun to read, it darted around through all the features and strategies arguing that each is more important than the other.

"and by stripping away the fiddle and the faff of so many fighting games - being able to direct and control your punches properly is about the limit of Arms' skill ceiling - Nintendo has crafted a level playing field for combatants of all skill levels."

While they recommend thumbs up joy con controls they do raise the merits of traditional controls despite restricted abilities. They cite an occasional gap between intention and execution of the motion controls.

Difficult to read, sure.
But anyway, make a complaint to Royal Mail or whoever delivered it. It's hardly in an acceptable state

The amount of single player stuff to do is pretty great in Injustice 2, multiverse stuff and even the unlockable gear all keep me playing.

Haven't played Tekken 7 yet so I can't comment

No I'm implying that calling it a stunning game that delivers the killing blow means they are probably quite enamored with it.

Honestly surprised ARMS scored that high, even more than Injustice 2. That said, it's certainly out there for a fighting game, so I suppose I can see it, assuming my thoughts align with the review lol
