At first I was surprised that LBP was given a 9, but then I remembered that Edge have been overly found of Media Molecule for a while. Oh and it's Edge.

And in a surprise twist LBP3 isn't even developed by Media Molecule. Sumo did it, but they're still British so your point remains valid. :)

Hey! I'm not joyless.

I bought a PS3 for LBP and a Vita for Tearaway. Moneyless? Yes. Joyless? No! :D

I thought you didn't like LBP?

Quirky English game gets a pass from Edge? I never saw that coming...

Mean while, an American game with a tongue-in-cheek punk rock attitude gets low-balled? Who'd have thought? I'm sure their monocles popped off and top hats spun when someone made a pop-culture reference. How beastly!

The general gist is that its very much a sideways step for the series. Once you've played it once it doesn't compel you to play that 'one more game' like it's predecessors. They bemoan the lack of personality in the factions and that their actions don't match philosophies. I believe they used the phrase cardboard cutouts to describe them. I suppose that a dressed up way of saying the AI is crap. It seems that its all just very bland compared to its setting, essentially just Civ in space.

Edge don't appear to be putting their reviews up online any more, at least for the last few months they haven't anyway. Don't know if I'm just missing something. :?

thanks

Maybe they want to push print sales and the online reviews take away potential sales

Sorry to say this I never really got on with Edge as I found the print to be too small and they used words and sentences that I did not understand. I can give a sentence a re-read but if I need to read something more than twice to get what is being said I turn sad :(
