That EB score is about as bullshit as they come. Giving the game a 4 is some kind of reactive statement to the excitement from the game's fanbase.

I know you're just talking about the review scores, but that statement also holds up in general. Cover design, articles, writing quality, it's all top notch.

But I am talking about the magazine in general, not the scores. It's the only gaming magazine I buy regulary.

Wait, ZENO CLASH got an eight!? I take everything back. Edge is declared credible, no one disagrees, thread prospers, sun shines, virgins are deflowered etc etc

You should read other reviews and impresssions before you do any of that.

EDGE review bits from a post on Codemasters forum said:
“Packed with diversions, Asobo understands what makes its off-road wonderland a thrill to tour”

“thrilling, knockabout races”

“The boisterous handling may not have the same physics fine-tuning of its more simulatory bretheren, but it’s traded off for a punchy, giddy ride that rattles across rugged terrain and flies off cliff faces with glee.”

“The range of freedom permitted in races is huge.”

“The different classes of vehicle transform the manner in which you navigate the landscape, and visually too, the game flits between lighting models that overhaul its atmosphere.”

“Though informed by satellite imaging, FUEL is refracted through an artist’s eye”

Fuel got a 4.5 from german PSM3, on of the best selling PS3 magazines over here. Something is really really wrong with edge.

Codemaster's racing games always get inflated scores from EDGE. Nothing new.

"one of the best selling"? That's not hard to achieve - there are only 3 PS3 magazines in Germany :lol

MGS4 an 8? Warhawk 8? NGS 8? RC 8? :D

not really consistent scoring, of course they have different reviewers but you would think editors would try to make scoring consistent.

Who really cares, people should have different opinions about everything, including games.

When Edge handed out its first 7 to a AAA game they puked, can you believe it?

Now they do it just to see the change of expression...
