Bayonetta. 10. Really?
Care to illuminate?

A 5 for Dragon Age huh? Well, that's what they get for reviewing the console version. Unless, of course, their criticisms go beyond wonky control schemes.

Surprising that. It always looked to me like a poor Devil May Cry clone where the only saving grace was the fact that it had more tits and ass.

I'm thinking that back cover is the new Castlevania.

I've been on a fucking blitz of Castlevania recently. Even the PS2 ones. -_-

It gels with Famitsu who gave it full marks.

With DA they have made the same mistake as Eurogamer did with Risen, but part of me thinks that they did it to be contrary.

Are other places rating DA that highly? Ive played a good few hours of it and though its well made and presented its so very by the numbers and it doesnt feel that special at all. None of the choices feel plot defining so far, nor does character building have much diversity to it and everything plotwise has been very predictable.

Maybe 5s a bit low, its not terrible, its well made it just uninspired it would seem.

It currently has a Metacrtic of 91% on PC and 88/87% on PS3/360 so yeah most seem to rate it quite highly.
