Shame that PLAY is fairly worthless for reviews. Didn't they give Sonic the Hedgehog (360) an 8.5 out of 10? I know that they overrated quite a few Gamecube games back in the day and I foolishly followed their advice and bought bad games.

However, I still think Motorstorm will be a 8.5 plus rated game for the most part.

Play magazine is the only print game magazine I would consider subscribing to. I love their enthusiasm for the hobby and they have a way of making every game they preview look amazing.  But I don't put much stock in their reviews.  Hetz, I have to ask, did you post that whole thing just to highlight Play magazine's 10/10 for Motostorm?   icon_biggrin

Motorstorm a 10!?  eek

EVERYTHING I've heard about it is that it, other than graphics, is lackluster in every way.

And I'd say a 9 is a bit high for Hotel Dusk too.

Actually I heard the single player is pretty shallow.  But the online play is supposed to be excellent.

Off topic, but do you like Hotel Dusk? I just bought the 2nd Phoenix Wright, and contemplating Hotel Dusk. Oh, and I just got to the final case in the first PW, I finally understand your avatar!

I liked Hotel Dusk and gave it a solid B.  It's definitely worth a play through.

Jesus H. Christ you people need to give this shit a rest.

As for the reviews-they sound a little bit too good to my ears, but I am very encouraged that the buzz for motorstorm is getting better-I really want to pick this one up and justify another nice PS3 exclusive, but I will wait for some more stateside reviews.

Surprisingly no.  I got final boxed copy of F1 2 weeks in advance, but no sign of motorstorm yet.

I read the IGN review yesterday... I'm pretty excited for it right now.  Sounds like a great game for the hardcore F1 fan (ME!).

apparently you're not allowed to post anything PS3, Elder Scrolls or 360 related anymore  slywink  Anyways, is PLAY one of those UK magazines?  for some reason that's the connection I'm getting in my mind, but if it's available in the US I may have to look into it.

I remember when Play magazine first came out (or maybe it's when I first discovered it), I couldn't believe how misleading their reviews were. They throw out good scores like it's nothing, and I immediately sensed something foul. I figured they were simply trying to make publishers happy so that they would support them.
