4/10 to me treks into the "unplayable" territory (save your shade), which this game is not. I don't think I've ever played a game and said it was bad enough to warrant that. Seems a little harsh.

Edge doesnt seem to be that weird to me, they seem to have a rather good idea of the games.

Which makes it so weird to see a 4/10.

No matter if you hate the game, the reboot or the style etc...there is nothing that excuses a 4/10...objectivly the game is no 4/10...simple as that.

At its worst a 6 but to be a 4 it needs to be far more broken and messed up than it simply is.
There is nothing to discuss about it, if you go with a 4/10 then thats simply because you dont like the game and not because its objectivly a bad game.

Giving Shadow a 4/10 is destroying your reputation because it simply isnt as broken or messed up in terms of gameplay, story etc as a 4/10 makes it seem.

That just has to be accepted and people need to be honest enough to admit that.
6 maybe, 7 should be standard...but 4 is showing just that someone doesnt like the game.

Edge is known for being eDgY, they usually give controversial scores to successful titles just to stir the pot, I wouldnít mind them too much. Nothing new to see here, letís just move on.

I agree! It's IMPOSSIBLE a 4/10! Anything below a 7 is total bull****.

That's your opinion, you don't get to define what is "objectively" a good score. Shadow has a lot of problems. Some of those problems mean a lot more to some then others. For example some care more about story and some care more about gameplay. If the story sucks, which is does, then the reviewer will give it a lower score. Where as if someone cares more about certain gameplay elements that factor will lead to them either rating the game a higher or lower score depending on what was offered.

There is no such thing as an unfair score when it comes from reviewer to reviwer. Review scores are always subjective. Whether or not the collective conscious will agree with that reviwer will depend on their own experiences with the game.

Itís not the first time they pull this crap, canít recall the other games right now but it occurred in the past.

They thrive on their controversial opinions, thatís just how they are. Not saying itís inherently bad, just not something to take extremely seriously. Shadow has a lot of flaws, but is nowhere near 4/10 material.

I agree: 4/10 is something You give to a game that has very evident problems which Shadow have not.
I think a correct evaluation would be 7/10

Lol, they're only trolls when low scores come on. If they gave Shadow a 10 everyone will want to write them a personal thank you thread for such a score.

Anywhere we can read the review?

I do like the cover though. They could have gone with dual guns and a braid and all that for Lara, but they chose not to. Laura isn't iconic with her bow and mullet hair. Lara was with her braid and dual guns. Eventually someone else will steal those traits, and it'll become associated with them instead of Lara Croft. That image of Lara with her dual guns and braid is aging and will soon be gone if they keep going with Laura and the reboot universe.
