That's not a prediction, thats going otuside and seeing rain clouds.

Interesting that they gave Bioshock 2 a higher score then 1. Impressive results for Mass Effect 2.

Huh? It's a great game, not as good as the original in terms of story, but gameplay? Sure.

Traditionally Edge cares more about gameplay and mechanics than they do about story.

Bioschock 2 is a better game than the first, problem is context.

Happy to see the props for ME2. Heavy Rain is supposed to be divisive, and 7 is a good score.

The topic has barely begun to roll, and you already see peeps saying "OMG all hell will break loose becuz of the HR score, duuuuur." Grow up guys, baiting (or just pretending to have a Sonybot-o-meter) is fucking annoying. :lol

Scores seem to be on par with other outlets this time around.

Heavy Rain review brief summary of complaints, from rllmuk.

Main complaints are not being able to tell what some actions do beforehand, and a lack of scene setting - you're plunged into situations without exposition, and even the character thoughts don't say why you'e doing what you're doing. At one point you investigate a crime you don't know exists because of this aversion to exposition.

Characters rarely comment or reflect on the plot, and the only signs of change are visual rather than emotional: bandages and bruises reskinning the character. Deaths tend to be badly handled too, most coming at the hands of "comic book villains" and robbed of gravitas by the poor epliogues.

Also they say that one chase scene verges on parody, with you dodging chickens and crates of fruit and missing only two workmen carrying a big pane of glass.

While I do like Mass Effect better, I don't get the vast differences between its score and that of Dragon Age. One is a 9, the other a 5?

Those sound like some lame faults. The kind of stuff you wouldn't expect lacking in a game that has been 4 years in development.

Yeah it should have been a 4 on the normal edge review scale.

However I dont understand how bioshock 2 can get that high, not nearly as good as the first imo. But well it's edge and they usually have pretty good reviews to go with the scores.

With regard to Heavy rain, in last months EDGE you probably could have guessed at a 7. In the large preview they had, they noted poor controls and the fact in such a contexted based game the problem with QTE is you have no idea what they would lead to you. They did say though that no matter what its faults, it demands to be played to the end.

Interested in the comments on Edgeworth....

BTW the Heavy Rain score is the best score a game of this calibre should get, especially from Edge. I can understand the criticism. My pre-order will not change but I still have my reservations based on my experiences with Fahrenheit.

And besides scores are useless anyway. If Edge came out without giving scores and just with text people would agree a lot more with their opinions I guess, instead of basing subjective argumented views on an objective numerical scale

You misread. I'm freaking out about the people who freak out in anticipation of freak outs that are yet to be. It's very meta.
