Sonic Mania a 7 is ridiculous when the gave that fucking sausage roll game a 9... and countless other 9's for that matter.

 

The classic Sonic's are just as good as classic Mario - but theyre very different games.

No review of Everybody's Golf though?

 

Servers didn't go online until the day before we went to press. We don't review sports games as a rule, though I'd have made an exception for this if we had time.

Steven's Sausage Roll is easily my favourite game of the past couple of years. No irony, no giving it special consideration because it's an indie. It's a masterclass in game design.

Sonic Mania is just another Sonic game isn't it? Those were never heavy on gameplay. They're not Mario or anything.

What? They're pure, unadulterated, momentum-based gameplay... and they're glorious!

 

That said, I don't necessarily disagree with a 7. Each to their own.

It's hardly a rehash, it feels quite different in terms of structure and the bonus levels are so much fairer. It's a much better game and based on something that is over 20 years old, it feels fresh.

I'm pretty sure this is sarcasm but Pickford has pos'd it. So conflicted!

20 pages, easily

 

Nostalgia is easily worth 2 points though, so it’s a wonderful 9.

Never mind the sonic score or lack of EG review, the real standout is how did Knack 2 muster a 5 - did edge change the out of to 1 million for that review?

Nah, it's just average.
