Not that I've played either one but Operation Flashpoint scoring higher than NSMB Wii has got to be some kind of lolz unless Nintendo really dropped the ball on the new Mario.

I mean, really?

Why is OP2 scoring higher than Mario 'lolz'?

Edit. You haven't even played either of the games.:lol

Going to guess that Edge reckon NSMB Wii is too sterile, safe and joyless - that seems to be their issue with a number of recent Nintendo titles.

Indeed that is our DS game. I am pretty stoked on this score. Pretty really stoked.

We've been getting buried (and rightfully so) by many a bigger-name games. But there's some good info around about the game (for example IGN did a great preview here: http://ds.ign.com/articles/100/1004030p1.html).

In short, its a puzzle-prg with a battle system that is equal parts TBS and Puzzle.

It's a DS game, so that's probably why you haven't heard much about it. Looks like a Puzzle Quest styled game.

These scores are definitely reasonable.

Though, GTA scoring a 9 and NSBM Wii scoring a 7 hurts.

Ratchet score doesn't surprise me. The whole series is quite fun and I loved ToD, but when I went back and played the PS2 versions and just recently Quest for Booty, I absolutely agree with the complaint that the games all feel very same-y even despite their obvious attempts to break out of the formula. An EDGE 7 is for a really good game, so no surprise.

Borderlands seems a little low to me. Playing the game has really relieved a lot of the beefs I thought I'd have with it. Only the vehicle system and the fact that it seems more designed for co-op than SP bug me at this point.

M&L3 absolutely deserves the score. Might be the best non-puzzle DS game.

Drawn to Life obviously didn't fix the issues with the first game if the EDGE score is to be believed. Realistically, most people felt the story, presentation, and drawing in the first one was good and that the level design was what needed work. So, I'm guessing EDGE figures they didn't fix the level design.

M&M DS doesn't surprise me either. Capybara clearly have good heads on their shoulders and I remember EDGE giving Puzzle Quest a good score so I suspect they have a soft spot for puzzle-hybrids.

I've heard of people not reading the OP, maybe he's trying to start a new trend by not even reading beyond the first word of the topic.
