    No formats stated. Edge is multiformat so not sure if some of these scores are for Wii/DS versions.

    Dead Space Extraction - 8
    Scribblenauts - 7
    Mini Ninjas - 7
    FIFA 10 - 9
    Guitar Hero 5 - 7
    The Beatles: Rock Band - 7
    Professor Layton and Pandora's Box - 7
    Metroid Prime Trilogy - 8

    Official Nintendo Magazine UK

    Wii

    Mario and Sonic at the the Winter Olympic Games 90%
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Smash Up 83%
    Dead Space Extraction 84%
    Fifa 10 84%
    Spyborgs 80%
    The Beatles: Rockband 90%
    Guitar Hero 5 92%
    Tales of Symphonia :Dawn of the New World 67%

    DS

    I actually agree with the Dirt 2 score, didn't think it was bad. Sure it was a cheap port but its a lot better than most traditional Wii racers...sadly.

    From GoNintendo, no write ups posted just scores.

    So it's Fifa time again.
    Well, I wonder if the Wii version is worth 84%, maybe I'll give it a try then.
    Although I doubt it will be better then PES Wii, I'm very curious to see what they've done with it.

    I thought the Wii version would be different, it does have a more cartoony look to it.

    To be honest I can't see it being better than PES Wii, for me that game is near perfect, just needs more real players & teams.

    Yeah, me too, but you never know with EA. Last year they also implemented some features of the PES version into Fifa on Wii, I can see them doing it again this year.
    PES Wii can be improved in a lot of ways too, like better online mode, better graphics (it's just too ugly IMHO), and some minor bugs in the controls.
    I can't wait till it comes out, I think it's coming in October or so.

    I gotta agree with the Professor Layton Score. It felt as though it didn't make the same amount of impact as Curious Village did. It felt as though I was doing the exact same puzzles from the first game. Pandora's box wasn't bad though,

    Don't know, but it deserved a fucking Oscar IMHO.
    That game, it's just lightyears ahead of any other football game on any other platform.
    PES 2010 is coming out on:

    11/03/09 US
    11/12/09 AU
    11/20/09 EU

    So still 2 months patience [​IMG]

    Dead Space Extraction - 8: Haven't played yet
    Scribblenauts - 7: A little too low. I'd say an 8 is good
    Mini Ninjas - 7: DS version is meh, haven't played Wii version
    FIFA 10 - 9: Soccer/Football game, snore
    Guitar Hero 5 - 7: For being like the first Wii game without friend codes, not to mention a good soundtrack, seems a little too low
    The Beatles: Rock Band - 7: Too low, it's Beatles fucking Rock Band
    Professor Layton and Pandora's Box - 7: Meh, never liked Layton games
    Metroid Prime Trilogy - 8: About on par

    Official Nintendo Magazine UK

    Wii

    Mario and Sonic at the the Winter Olympic Games 90%: Snore, overrating
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Smash Up 83%: It's a Brawl clone with Turtles, deserves lower
    Dead Space Extraction 84%: Haven't played
    Fifa 10 84%: Same as above
    Spyborgs 80%: Yeah, I'd give it the same
    The Beatles: Rockband 90%: Agree
    Guitar Hero 5 92%: Agree
    Tales of Symphonia :Dawn of the New World 67%: Seems only appealing to Tales fans. From what I've heard, it's just boring and poorly translated
    MySims Agents 80%: Haven't played, but looks like crap
    Mini Ninjas 83%: Looks alright, maybe lower
    Colin McRae: Dirt 2 78%: Heh, considering it got significantly lower scores. Well, the Wii seems pretty short handed on racers and even more shorthanded on realistic ones

    DS

    Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games 91%: Snore, overrating
    Mario and Luigi: Bowser`s Inside Story 92%: Snore, overrating, not a fan of M&L RPG
    Scribblenauts 82%: Maybe 3% higher in my book

    Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games 91%

    IMO

    Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games -5%

    It's not a Mario and Sonic game until I see major platforming!!

    Meh, ONM scores are ALWAYS biased, why even care? I mean, M&S sucks/sucked so bad , and still ONM gave it 90%... And those edge scores are just too low...

    Official magazines always bump up their scores- ONM does it with terrible titles like M&S, OXM does it with half their reviews. It's especially skewed if the game is a first party title.

    You can't really trust reviews like that. I generally will look at several (preferably independent) reviews, but in the end the only way to tell for sure if a game is any good is to play it (unless it's superman 64, or an imagine title-then you just know).

    Edge are critical on purpose. If you see a 7 think of it as an 8. Also, an 8 you can think of as a 9. It is the way the magazine has always been. 6 or lower are usually bad. I don't always agree with Edge.
