Andy_Tanner Posted January 27, 2004 Share Posted January 27, 2004 I'm flogging a dead horse here, and I don't recall exactly what Edge said on those 2 occasions. But it would be certainly possible to mark a game down for flaws while admiring its ambition and genre, and hoping that it would be successful. We know that UBISoft was using the sales of its non-realistic games as an important factor of whether to move over to only developing squad based shooters and stealth games. As a result, we were all hoping that BG&E, PoP and XIII would do well, whether or not we regarded BG&E and XIII as being entirely successful in their implementation. Mind you, Edge didn't penalise Broken Sword 3 for its flaws, as it admired what it set out to achieve, so maybe that is inconsistent. Perhaps you should take off a mark from BS3, and add it on to BG&E's score. I'll lend you my Tippex. i agree with everything you've said but Edge is a buying guide at the end of the day. it has to understand that people make informed choices based on their reviews. if Edge believes that BG&E stands out from the "glut" of titles released over Christmas then why isn't this reflected in their review, why am i only finding this out from them now?
