Enjoy. Got it from teamxbox forums (hopefully they are correct) :)

New EGM scores:

Halo 2 (GotM): 10, 10, 9.5
Good: Superb online mode, polished to perfection
Bad: The game ends

Metroid Prime 2: 10, 9.5, 9.5
Good: Incredible atmosphere
Bad: No online mode in multiplayer

Metal Gear Solid 3: 10, 9.5, 9.0
Good: Polished gameplay, excellent voice acting
Bad: Weird and nonsensical plot twists

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas: 10, 10, 9.0
Good: Absurd amount of variety
Bad: The PS2 is showing its age

Ratchet & Clank: UYA
9.0, 9.5, 9.5.
Good: Awesome online play
Bad: Single-player hasn't changed much

Killzone: 8.0, 7.5, 8.0
Good: Fast gameplay, excellent music
Bad: Horrendous slowdown

Wow. It's rare that any game gets a single 10 from EGM. 6 10s in one issue is flat out crazy from this magazine. Plenty of fantastic games coming out. :D

i dont get why people disliked the weird plot twists in 2, it didnt add much to the story, but it was fun (like when cambell was freakin out at the end of the game)

calm down, the game has not even come out yet.

that said, at least someone still knows that MGS is great and worthy of a 10. Nice to see the backlash did not influence their reviews

I agree, that last part of the game was very cool.

lol some people take games too seriously, you really think that everyone would score any game a perfect 10? Nope and while I havent played the game yet myself i bet that not everyone will see it as perfect. Its the reason why they give 3 reviews not just 1.

exactly. Very easy to see if you have played some of the other games or read some of the summaries.

Yes he did.

Now I can live. Halo 2 will get perfect scores. :wink: Those scores seem accurate, but if EGM/1UP has said that they are fake, then I guess they must be. :(

Well if they are wrong I guess just close the thread. The same guy who usually post them is mostly right on the scores. But if they are wrong, oh well. :?

Hey I just got them from the same guy that usually post the scores from the magazines. Usually his post are correct. If they are wrong oh well, then delete this thread. Like I said I got it from teamxbox :?

Nobody has really said they are fake yet. I was just wondering if it was a possibility.

YES! I knew they were fake all along! Nobody give Metroid Prime 2 a 9.5! :) Seriously though, I hope these scores end up being true, or at least close, becasue they are excellent scores.

That freaked me out too. He said something like "you've been playing too long, you will ruin your eyes". That scared me because I had been playing for pretty long that night.

Me too, it was about 2 or 3 am and the whole wierdness of the events that followed really tripped me out...that is until I completely lost what was going on with the game and gave up for the night.

Killzone doesn't deserve to be in that list, with such UBER games! Other than that, it's like a copy/paste for peoples' Christmas list all over the world.... except Asia with Halo, Anti American BASTRDS! Buy a damn X-box, and stop settling for all the crap Nintendo throws out on GC. There's no way you can like that shit!
