They are all erroneous on the simple fact Resident Evil 4 didn't get a 10.

 

We could actually expand this! because - 

 

"The 20th anniversary issue (E258) published in August 2013 carried a feature called "The Ten Amendments", in which the following seven games' scores were retrospectively adjusted to ten-out-of-ten. A rationale was provided for each.

GoldenEye 007 (N64)

Advance Wars (Game Boy Advance)

Resident Evil 4 (GameCube, PlayStation 2, Wii, Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)

Drop7 (iOS, Android)

Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)

Super Street Fighter IV (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Arcade)

Dark Souls (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Windows)"

 

So - 

 

Super Mario 64 (1996) YES
Gran Turismo (1997) YES
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998) YES
Halo: Combat Evolved (2001) YES
Half-Life 2 (2004) YES
Halo 3 (2007) NO 
The Orange Box (2007) YES
Super Mario Galaxy (2007) YES
Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) NO
LittleBigPlanet (2008) NOOOOO
Bayonetta (2009) YES
Super Mario Galaxy 2 (2010) YES
Rock Band 3 (2010) NO
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (2011) YES
The Last of Us (2013) YES
Grand Theft Auto V (2013) NO
Bayonetta 2 (2014) NO
Bloodborne (2015) YES
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (2017) YES
Super Mario Odyssey (2017) ?????

 

GoldenEye 007 (N64) YES

Advance Wars (Game Boy Advance) NO

Resident Evil 4 (GameCube, PlayStation 2, Wii, Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360) YES

QFT. I'd buy RE4 again on Switch right now, and I already own about a quadzillion copies of it across different formats.

 

Never has a more grave error been made than not giving that a 10 (or a 6).

Elite

Exile

It's been a nailed-on 8 since the the week the raid came out. I'm dead sure it'd have been a nailed-on 10 if it hadn't been for the disappointing endgame; almost the opposite dynamic of the first game, where the raid was its saviour. I'll still be interested to read the review, but if it doesn't go 'great campaign, interesting new ways of making the general open world activities relevant... hold on; what's the point of strikes, gah why am I dog baiting in Trump Tower and OMFG WHAT HAPPENED TO LOOT' I'll be eating my copy. Fortunately for fans of EDGE's coverage of a major game series, this almost guarantees even more coverage in future issues as they try to put together articles analysing just what went semi-wrong and how the game will be improved with future releases. Sounds like year one all over again really.

 

So the score's dead on. Let's just hope they're right about Mario too, because I have a Switch due to arrive tomorrow and nothing but that fairy boy game to keep it company.

...and Super Mario Bros. which is probably the strongest 10/10 they've "awarded".

 

The only one of those I've played is Elite and that was a very long time ago, so have no real opinion.

Goldeneye 007 deserved a 10 back in 1997, IMO. But now... Not really. Hasn't aged very well, unlike the other Nintendo 64 games that received a 10.

Is this what's known as Review Score Inflation?
