I'm surprised at that GT Sport score. Seems Edge weren't that impressed with much this month - pretty average score all around really (with the exception of Forza and Cuphead).

ACO deserves more than a 6...it's one of the best open world games since RDR.

I'm really tempted to grab the issue to read the reviews. Especially GTSport and Golf Story.

I signed up to a 6 month trial for £5 but really the quality of the magazine is nowhere near what it used to be at the start. I guess economics no longer allow for the paper quality etc.

Why? Because you disagree with some numbers they put next to a review?

Would like to read the Edge [5] review for Golf Story. I've put off buying it for now because it didn't really seem like the sum of its parts, let alone more than the sum of its parts.

Vane still exists? I almost completely forgot about that game. I'm also curious about what they thought of Code Vein.

5/10 for Golf Story seems a bit harsh.

There’s a lot of rough scores there. Golf Story seems very harsh.

I'd have bet my house they'd love Golf Story, seems an incredibly Edge game

Forza 7 and Cuphead are their highest scorers? Well deserved, great games.

Xbox has no games!!!

Same, far too much coverage of indie games. gamesTM is a much better magazine as it covers way more (I really like the retro section) and has great editorials too.

That's by far the lowest score I've seen for Golf Story. Hope it doesn't dissuade anyone from picking it up; it's a really excellent game.

I believe last month's issue came out later than usual due to the exclusive Mario Odyssey review.

Very low score for Wolf2.
Currently in half of the game, for sure worse, than TNO, but 7?

7 means it's a good game and by all accounts it is good but not great, so that sounds reasonable to me.

What? The game is repetitive, the story is awful and boring

damn those reviews

it's so across the board it sort of looks symbolic

Harsh reviews across the board, but I haven't played any of those games, so I can't comment on their accuracy. Better than handing out 90's like they're nothing though..
