Poor show on the review front.

But that's to be expected from Edge. :P

Er how so, most the games have received poor reviews elsewhere as well.

I like the cover of this issue much more than the last one. Much less clutter.

What you don't see from the picture though is that the front cover has a plastic overlay that lifts off giving the front cover a stencil like effect which obviously links in with the controller being a bit like a tablet.

I disagree with Duke, Alice and the Shadows score.
Resident Evil and Hunted seem too high.

And Frozen Synapse seems like their usual high rating for indie smugness.

So, in all, I'm just making baseless statements after seeing a bunch of numbers. For all I know, I might completely agree with the text reviews.

Screw that! This is the internet, man! I ain't got time to read!

Distil it all down to an easy to browse info burst!

I agree that it looks smart-as in pretty much every aspect. It's just that it's totally not my sort of game.
Hm. Might as well sell my PC and just play brainless console games from now on, right?

You'll need that PC to come on here and tell us how good the brainless console games are, though.
