I'm in agreement with a lot of those scores, which has become rare with me and Edge. I'll need to read the reviews later.

Obra Dinn's score is hugely encouraging; I still haven't got around to it, but it's very much looking like My Sort Of Thing.

I'm nowhere near close to beating RDR2 yet but I don't think the disparity between it and Assassin's Creed is that big. Odyssey is a really good game.

I want to play Obra Dinn but there are a lot of other games I want to play and I can't justify buying one more that will probably go untouched for months right now. Looks like my kind of game though and happy to see it get a great score here.

I'll never get Edge's love with Rockstar games given how they usually prioritize gameplay, but in any case it was expected. I have to give Obra Dinn more of a chance.

There it is. Can't wait to play it. Every game that got 10/10 from EDGE this gen has been great.

Also, 98 meta incoming whenever it's added.

It ACO had gameplay like RDR2, Edge would have panned it. The Rockstar brand is truly transcendent.

RDR2 is a bit overrated. The game is phenomenal but imprefect. It's a solid 9 out of 10.
Yeah this 10/10 stuff is only bothersome because the flaws seem quite apparent even to people that don't have it. I feel like the controls are barely better than GTA5. I cannot believe they still have tap X to run.

I thought odyssey would score lower taking Edge's taste in consideration

7 is a good score and shows improvement over Origins

2 games in this list deserve their scores.
Obra Dinn
Odyssey, but i imagine they are generous with this one.
edge is anything but generous with ubisoft

odyssey deserves the score

Im convinced anyone who scores AC: Odyssey under a 90 has their views too clouded to what the series was previously.

Odyssey is a mediocre to bad Assassins creed. It is an Excellent character Action RPG.

Gameplay wise its closer to Nier: Automata than AC: Unity.

I like odyssey a lot but this is silly

As long as people are not complaining about boogeymans like "ubisoft artificially extended the grind to force mtxs !!!!1" people are fine to review it lower. The gameplay loop is fun to me but it might not be to other people, so the game would suffer in their eyes, and while the story starts strong it kind of ends in a letdown (or cliffhanger for the DLC i hope). Edge is notoriously strict and uses a full spectrum scale, so 7 is a good score.

Reading rdr2 ot paints a different picture. It's a great experience but gameplay is not that good

.

This is why I never like edge that much. They don't have consistensy amount reviews.
But have you played it?

It has control issues but once you tweak them and you become accustomed this game is one of the best of the generation, if not the best. Also, latest pages there are far less complaints and more people appreciating it.

You know, different reviewers might have different preferences?
