    Edge are known for being more critical of titles than other games sources, especially with Wii titles. While every now and again they rate the likes of House of the Dead:Overkill high they rated Monster Hunter Trii an average 7 (which for me was overrating it [​IMG] )

    Anyway they have just reviewed Super Mario Galaxy 2 and gave it a perfect score! Not something I've ever seen an Edge reviewer do, not this gen anyway.

    Super Mario Galaxy 2 is the next 40/40 in Famitsu´s List?

    Wow, can it really be that good? Since Galaxy 2 consentrates on the core-mechanics of Galaxy 1 and apperently builts on them I can well imagine that!

    I know that Edge is very harsh in their review and there already were highly anticipated games, that they rated below what people expected them to rate it and now a perfect score for Galaxy 2...

    Does anybody know what Galaxy 1 scored from Edge and which games got a 10/10 from them, just to have a comparison...

    http://www.edge-online.com/magazine/edge-r...er-mario-galaxy

    lol it got a 10 too, I guess they have this gen given out 10's. So according to them its better than the perfect first game. [​IMG]

    EDIT: This is the 12th game to get 10/10

    * Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64) - E35 (1996)
    * Gran Turismo (Sony PlayStation) - E55 (1997)
    * The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64) - E66 (1998)
    * Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox) - E105 (2001)
    * Half-Life 2 (Windows PC) - E143 (2004)
    * Halo 3 (Xbox 360) - E181 (2007)
    * The Orange Box (Windows PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360) - E182 (2007)
    * Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) - E183 (2007)
    * Grand Theft Auto IV (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360) - E189 (2008)
    * LittleBigPlanet (PlayStation 3) - E195 (2008)
    * Bayonetta (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360) - E209 (2009)

    I guess they're getting a bit Famitsu-y with this. No way LBP & Bayontetta are worth 10/10, sure 9 but by no means perfect games. Halo 3 and GTA 4 are hardly worth 8 to me.

    I knew it XD it's really the best game for the wii
    I already thought Mario galaxy 1 was the best

    :S I think it's going to be hard to get this game ( is this sentence right ??)
    I think there will be more leechers than seeders (or sold out in stores)

    Super Mario Galaxy 1 was released 16 days ago before the release date. Do it again!

    But before. I have to pass Sin and Punishment 2!

    I thought the exact same thing: Aside of those four games all the games listed here were groundbreaking in the respective genre... There were IMO some games, that are at least on par with LBP, Bayonetta, Halo3 and GTA4...

    But it is still a very good list, even though IMO there are some games missing but those are maybe before the time EDGE was first published. But if they would review VC-games then these are definitely 10er [​IMG]:

    -Super Metroid
    -A Link to the Past
    -Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    Damn, those 3 games are still the best!!! (but this is Offtopic, so lets keep discussing the 10/10 for Galaxy2 [​IMG])

    While they did give a lot of perfect scores this generation, edge is still a great magazine and SMG2 will definitely be amazing! SMG is one of my favourite games of all time, so I don't think they'll mess this up.

    I first read 2/10 [​IMG]

    Doesn't actually surprise me. SMG was a great game already and this one's supposed to be even better

    gah! the second one is about to be released and i haven't even finished SMG 1 and Sunshine! (i did finish 64 and 64ds though)

    64 was probably what re-defined my thinking of the possibilities of 3D games, 64DS re-defined my expectations about DS graphics, sunshine didn't re-define anything although it was a fun game worth the money, then SMG sort of got me disoriented at first but i got used to it and i was literally playing it non stop until my parents took my wii away because i had to study for exams (just got it back last week and haven't had the time to play it more)
    and now after reading this review, i am more excited about SMG 2 more than before!
