7 is not bad considering it is Edge and it's a PC only exclusive. Mm, no AVP review? :|

It'll go to PCG first of all, but since I need a new graphics card no single review matters at the moment.

Or they use the entire scale & not just 70%+.

Next month is LA Noire then.

F that! No way I'll believe an Ace Attorney title to be "slightly above average" :x

Could I get the last paragraph for Heavy Rain, please. Really interested to see what they have to say.

"How far are you willing to go to save someone you love?" asks the kidnapper. We'd put a similar question to Cage: how far are you willing to go for interactive drama? Scene by scene, Heavy Rain proves itself a worthy advocate, ripe with potential and mystery. But the bigger it grows and the more it threatens to collide and conflict, the broader the strokes become. Are you a champion of freedom and interaction or choreographed thrills? Do you make games or films? Like the scenarios put before our desperate father, the decisions are not easy, and the consequences often unsatisfying. But watching them unfold? Quite unlike anything else. [7]

Has Edge got a new editor or something? That cover does not look typically Edge-esque.

Nah I'm pretty sure Bag called it right, that looks much more like LA Noire.

An uncropped version of that screen appears in the GI scans linked in the LA Noire thread.
