Well deserved score for Bayonetta, except for a few technical issues (360 version of course) it's an awesome game.

I really liked the Bayonetta demo even though I'm really bad at twitchy action games. I got an B, hade fun, laughed at the jokes/winks, was floored by the animation and wanted more... I might actually buy this. It'll be my first action brawler since Devil May Cry :D

I'm a fan of DMC style games and this sums it up rather well:

And what version of L4D2 did they test? 360? Compared to the PC version it's just as crappy from a technical point of view as Dragon Age yet it still got a well-deserved 9 while DA is being shat upon. Unless they're whining about something else.

Going to waste the rest of my day playing Dragon Age either way when I get back home.

If one of Edge's complaints about Dragon Age is pacing, then I can probably see where they're coming from.

The main character could be Marcus Fenix in a tutu, and it really wouldn't change my opinion that Bayonetta is the best action game in years. It seems that everyone who has completed the game only heaps praise on it. So it's probably a lock for 9 or 10 on the 360 at least.

I wasn't aware the gameplay of L4D2 also changed completely on consoles. Maybe they have something to do with the forced over the shoulder view, the clumsy wheel controls, and the reduced enemy encounters.

I stopped taking them seriously a long time ago, you should too. They just do this shit. They keep throwing 9s and 10s for whatever reasons they have, then they find some well known game to shit on to prove that they're strict and serious like the good old days. They're a fucking joke.

I like Edge's approach. Instead of homogenizing the scores and giving in to other peoples' percieved opinions they rate subjectively as hell :)

Fuck Metacritic and its ilk. I want opinions, not "people think this is an X game so we should rate it X".

Why would anyone want to read a 9 score review when they've already made up their mind about a game? It's fun and more enligtening to read different opinions.

They're not homogenizing? LOL Is this why the majority of their scores are between 8-10? If you knew the old Edge you wouldn't say that. Btw nice to know that Spaceball according to Edge is as good a Dragon Age.

I actually doubt that most of their scores are between 8 and 10.
Anyway, I'd love to read the reviews. They're always a good read imo.

And the thread title should celebrate Bayonetta. :)

Dragon Age (360 version) is my Game Of The Year thus far. I can only assume that the Edge staff are, collectively, very drunk indeed, or insane, or just weird.

CONVERSELY I am now really looking forward to Bayonetta because of that score. Oh, Edge! How fickle I am with you!

On the one hand, I don't know if I disagree with the Dragon Age origins score. on the other hand, I played it for every waking hour of my time off from work when I got it.

It's derivative as fuck, the loading on the 360 version is fucking nasty, the A.I. can be retarded even when you set their tactics extensively, the game has the most wildly swinging difficulty of any RPG I've played in ages - easy one second, almost impossibly difficult the next.

And yet I can't stop playing it whenever I turn it on. it's a 5/10 and a 9/10!

Rarely has there been a better pic on GAF. 5? ORLY? *The* best RPG of the last few years. I am seriously depressed by the lack of "gamer" inside these reviewers.

And yet I can't stop playing it whenever I turn it on

That, my friend, is the only measurement that should be used in reviews. 10/10.

When I clicked on this thread I honestly expected to see it given a ten, and that was the reason for the surprise. Just goes to show: one man's meal is another man's leftovers. Or something.
