EDGE Issue 289 Reviews And End Of Year Awards

The latest edition of EDGE magazine has arrived at subscribers doors and as you would expect it is a bumper issue. There’s a number of reviews but the one that caught my eye is Fast Racing NEO which the publication only awarded a six out of ten. The magazine also has its end of 2015 awards during which Splatoon scooped the award for best Nintendo game and Nintendo was also named the publisher of 2015. You can check it all out, below.

    1. Now if Zelda U and Star Fox U had come out on time (not to mention if Codename STEAM was good, if Mario Tennis Ultra Smash was good, if AC amiibo Festival didn’t exist, etc.), then they might have somewhat deserved it. Basically, they made two non-remake games this year that were of any interest to most people.

  1. It’s thier opinion and I think they’re throwing em a bone plus 2015 was a kinda crappy year for really everyone in ways yes the PS4 n X1 are more useful but. They really don’t have much EXCLUSIVES then again this gen sucks in fact how it works is

    PC for 3rd Party

    Nintendo for Exclusives

    Plus this generation is so short lived too thanks to 4K PS4/X1 gotta go fast due to 4K and the NX to people needa have 4K for the 9th generation of consoles

  2. Interestingly, The Witcher III has been pretty well regarded by the outlets, and is completely missing in this list from EDGE.

    (Not that I played the game — I’ll be doing this by the end of this year, probably — but The Witcher III seems to be rock solid.)

    On another note: Nintendo Publish of the Year… EDGE cannot be serious in this stance.

  3. Best Publisher of 2015 is Nintendo? lmfao

  4. I miss the days when I loved Street Fighter II. That game was SO epic back in the day. But after Mortal Kombat came out, I forgot that Street Fighter II existed. I SO preferred the digitized fighters over the cartoony Street Fighter II fighters. To this day, I hate the art style of the Street Fighter series, and how unproportioned and exaggerated the fighters’ bodies are.
