EDGE #309 – review scores, four different covers featuring Super Mario Odyssey

Posted on July 15, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News, Switch

The latest issue of EDGE has started to surface. Along with the monthly review scores, we’ve learned that the magazine is featuring Super Mario Odyssey in a very special way.

First, the scores:

Nex Machina – 9
Valkyria Revolution – 3
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood – 8
Ever Oasis – 6
Black The Fall – 7
Monument Valley 2 – 7
Micro Machines – 6

As for Super Mario Odyssey, the Switch game stars on EDGE’s cover this month. Four different versions were created – three for retail and an exclusive subscriber version, pictured above.

EDGE’s Super Mario Odyssey is as follows: “Hat’s Off – How Nintendo is giving a radical makeover to the most famous face in games.” The magazine might simply have a recap of what was shown at E3, but we’ll just have to wait and see. In any case, these covers are very neat.

    Wow…. Valkyria Revolution got a pretty bad score. Considering the original game was a masterpiece, this is sad to see.

      Edge are always very harsh, thats why anything they give an 8 or above to is a big deal, and likely to be incredible. They are one of very few sources I trust.

      • Vigilante_blade

        Yea, I’m just sad to see this happen to a series like this. VC games have become awful, sadly, not following in the footsteps of the original.

        • Phish!

          Ive seen some other reviews and they are hard too.
          Mainly focusing on the girly fanservice (You know in war having armor that still show breasts)

          It is realtime action and you just press one button to win…there is no more thinking etc in turned based battles

          Long cutscenes with bad va

            So the Fire Emblem Awakening/Fates syndrome. Feels bad. I really loved the tasteful game that was VC 1.

          • Phish!

            well Awakening and Fates(less so) are actually good games with good mechanics. Valkyria Revolution isnt

          • Indielink

            Revolution is basically a musuo game. A very poorly done musuo at that.

        I’m glad we still have *some* harsh reviewers, because most of them just slap sixes on even the worst garbage

    • GoldenTriforce

      I’ve never played a game in the series but I have heard that Revolution is very different and in a bad way.

  • Tlink7

    What an awesome cover 😀 and the best part is, it is 100% accurate, not lying a$$ clickbait

    • AJK

      I haven’t bought a magazine in years but really want the trex and chain chomp one 🙂

      • Tlink7

        Same, I’ve had two of my favourite Nintendo magazines go down and haven’t bought a gaming mag since… I really really hope the success of the Switch maybe has Nintendo revive one of them… but then again they wouldn’t have the same writers so : /

    Ever Oasis deserves way more, I’d give it at least an 8, maybe 7 if I’m being grumpy, but a 6? No way.

    • Carlos

      Same here. This coming from someone who wasn’t even interested in it until I saw a gameplay review.

      • Bart

        Same thing I saw happen to Fantasy Life I think, it’s a game that takes its sweet time, doesn’t go well with a reviewer’s schedule I bet.

  • I almost lost it for a split second when I just glaced at this post and saw the Mario cover and a review score of a 3, without obviously realizing the scores were for other games and remembering its way too early for reviews on Odyssey. haha.

    That T-Rex cover is amazing! Lucky subscribers!
