i used to think they were decent for at least giving driver 3 a crap score (3 i think) when other magazines rated it highly (through their teeth/arses), but recently i heard that edge always slated reflections games since reflections pulled an exclusive cover from edge when offered one on official playstation or similar many years ago.[/quote:06c116835b]
This strikes me as urban myth.
For a magazine that prides itself on being independent, untouchable and transparent, I couldn’t see them being so juvenile, petty and vengeful.
As has been mentioned, staff change regularly, so you’d either need a long-standing company mandate (‘Always slate Reflections games’), or a draconian editor willing to supercede her staffs reviews.
Much more likely explanation is that is was a shit game.
