4 hours in and an 8 feels about right for God of War.

Incoming 10 pages of people trying to completely discredit EDGE.

The fact they scored Sea of Thieves higher than FC5 and A Way Out is absurd to me, those are both games that have a hell of a lot more gameplay to them than Sea of Thieves.

Wow seriously that is a terrible score for a big exclusive.

What are they playing at? Just lying for attention no doubt...such a big game and they give it a shit score..

Detective Pikachu deserves better than this!

Why would I get hurt from a number that changes nothing? Never cared about scores they mean nothing when you actually PLAY a game and love it
Then why the obnoxious reaction about a score in a review thread if you don’t care for the scores?

If you felt uncomfortable is ok to say it.

8 is still a good game mind you.

God of War – 8
Sea of Thieves – 7
Far Cry 5 – 6
A Way Out – 6
I'm not even mad about god of war , in fact i don't care ...

BUt a Way out getting a 6 ? Really ? too low.
Sea of thieves getting a 7 with such lack of content ?
Far cry 5 getting a 6 ?

Were those scores made with a Dice + 4 ? That's the only thing that make sense.

While you're tearing yourself apart due to your obsession about metacritic scores, I'd like to point out that while Minit is certainly not more worthy than a 6/10 (the concept quickly fades off, it's getting repetitive), it's still a game that you really should experience at least once.

Yup, that's excellent. Anything lower would've been rather annoying though.

Personally was expecting a 9.

8 seems a decent score for gow but 6 for far cry is rather harsh. Sot getting a 7 in comparison is laughable considering the paltry amount of content it has.

I wonder if they knew about the Dark Souls Switch delay before printing the magazine, and if they mention it.

I didn't expect that Sea of Thieves score there. Especially relative to the other games in the same issue

Agree with their score for GOW.
Game is good but nothing stellar and takes a lot of control away from the player which one might like or not like.

they use the whole scale like joe i'm guessing. still though...sea of theives is a 7 even in that case? Far cry 5 and A way out are 6's?? I dunno
Yeah, they use the whole scale. I just think it's also best to read the actual review, which I suppose is beyond the purview of this thread since it's about the actual scores. I mean, 5 is basically average and there's nothing terrible or trashy about being an everage game, it depends on expectations of a series. 6 is above average so that's better.

In addition, I assume all these reviews aren't from the same reviewer? Not sure how Edge works in that sense. That might explain the high score of Sea of Thieves, but it really would help if there were some excerpts of the reviews to read.

If you're not being sarcastic then you need to grow up. Why the hell would they lie for attention and since when is 8 on a 10 point scale that is properly used a 'terrible score'. Just because a game is 'big' doesn't mean it's good. Why games should be any different from films when it comes to reviews is beyond me.

Member has been warned: attempt to discredit print outlet by accusing them of "clickbait" for giving a game a great review.
Clickbait reviews suck

Their entire post was sarcastic. They were talking about Detective Pikachu via deflection

Read the spoiler in their post.

Scribblenauts is the real tragedy here, albeit not Edge's fault. How in the world haven't they done a mode where one player makes something and the others have to guess what they wrote for it ala Pictionary? It'd be so great guessing whether a friend wrote "giant evil blue barbarian","huge mean teal warlord", or "mega diabolical aquamarine warrior", etc. This party game bs is such a disappointment

A Way Out's writing is pathetically bad and it has basically every trope you can imagine in a game like this. It's mediocre through and through.

Also, the acting is bad.

EDGE will always be harsher with their scores than the norm. saying that, an 8 is still a great score.

Lol at giving Sea of Thieves a higher score than Far Cry.

They must have access to a time machine and they're playing a version of it four years from now that actually has content.
