    I gave KH a try and yeah I agree with those scores to be honest. Glad to see the Might & Magic game do well in a mag like Edge of all places. They seem overly critical on games. Still remember that these are opinions of one person.

    NSMB Wii scores a bit low IMHO actually, it gets 96% from ONM, but what does that say? [​IMG]
    They overscored a lot of first party Nintendo games, this is probably the same case.

    I really hope NSMB is as good as the 96% score. Nice score for Muramasa in ONM.

    I think the scores are fine for Kingdom Hearts. It was a really boring game for me.

    I'm not surprised. KHDS was a big letdown.

    Oh come on, it wasn't that bad.
    The first three hours or so were just plain awful, and the guy-love between Axel and Roxas started getting very, very awkward, but it is still a good game.

    KH seemed a little low. Granted it had quite a few flaws but it's definitely worth a 7 at least. The rest seem agreeable.

    The fact that DJ Hero got a better score than Muramasa tells me not to believe anything this magazine says.

    69% is more like it not 5... i think the rating went down cuz of hyping and then falling (and failing)
    Mario games have always been great [and Zelda (or Link) ]

    KH is actually boring.
    The ratings are just fine.

    I've played KH for a good 20 hours or so, and I'll admit, it's a fine game, but unworthy of a high score. It all came down to mindless button mashing, cut-screen watching and mashing the A button every time dialogue came up.

    It's worthy of a 69%. Hell, 65% even. But nothing more than a 7 or less than a 5 I reckon.

    NSMB Wii is so overhyped, its crazy. The game is nothing special at all and has no online. Pathetic that a holiday 2009 title lacks online. Its not like it has some crazy physics that will make it hard, its vanilla mario bros from ds repacked. I hope it bombs honestly to show nintendo not to re-hash old games with a new paint of coat and expect people to lap it up. Looking at animal crossing for their last pathetic effort. Shame really, nintendo will never be the powerhouse they were in the gamers hearts like the NES/SNES days. But hey, more bathroom scales will make it all ok!

    I don't like Kingdom Hearts cause I think it is overrated but come on, Edge magazine are a bunch of Microsoft and Sony loving fanboys who would sooner cream their pants over games with good graphics then ones that have meh graphics but are actually well made. Kingdom Hearts has never been truly amazing, at least I never felt any of the ones for the PS2 were like 9.5 worthy (I rated both at 8 myself) and the GBA one was fucking awful (1.0 worthy), but those ratings are just completely backwards, Kingdom Hearts should have got a 7 or 8 and Might and Magic should have got a 5 just based on the titles alone. Edge magazine will forever be a casual graphics loving fanboy magazine.

    Well done Might & Magic, good to see. New Super Mario Bros is just the DS game with 4 player multiplayer - way overhyped. Its' just another cheap attempt by Nintendo to show the lack of quality software for the Wii.
