I wonder how they got Mario Kart so early...

Also there is some rumors that Game Informers Rebel Strike was made from unfinished version, saying something it still was 20 builds or something short, and some dude though it was a review copy and sensed it to reviewers. Well, we'll see...

screw them being biased they are damn strict with there reviews I'm pretty sure Swat is worth more then that if the past series is anything to go by though its released to close to Rainbow Six 3.

As for Castlevania that's about the scores I expected I'd imagine there are some camera issue's in there.

You must be refering to the December EGM. Cause I am looking at the November EGM, and none of this is in here. EGM is biased, but they are still better than most other gaming mags in the reveiw department. GMR is better though.;)

I don't think EGM is as biased as you all say...

They got leanings towards PS2, but what gaming publication doesn't. Their reveiws are usually decent.

i would really love to know this... What prove does anyone have for EGM being biased? I'm not criticising, i just reallly want to know because it seems like some people just say this when the games they like don't get good reviews...

Bias does show up in ALL gaming publications. It hardly ever shows in EGM's reveiws. When you do see it it is usually in previews or the rumors section. EGM doesn't seem half as biased as about 90% of the other gaming mags I've read.

Ninja Turtles is the biggest disapointment...

Castlevania- Well, it probably still has that fantastic musical score worth buying...

XII- Looked promissing, but I saw a couple of movies and the animation of the characters looked too "cartoony"... I expected higher scores, tough.

Fifa 2004- Why can't this series just perish and give way to the mighty Pro Evolution/Winning Eleven series??? And why does it always have some kind of "Award" for it everytime it comes out, even tough it is far inferior than the Konami offering? :irked"

Karaoke Revolution- Strangely enough, that is the game I'm expecting the most! Feels like an interesting new concept and it sure seems a lot more fun then conventional Karaoke... Now I still am not sure how the game judges your vocal talents- Does anyone know this?

Sega GT Online- I liked the 2002 version very much- If this game keeps the play engine and boosts online play, then it is bought!!! Hope to get some competition from some of you guys in this game!

AS for mario Kart's scores... Now this is a big surprise! With all the complaints about speed and the "disappearance" of the "jump" technique, I sure was expecting scores in the 7's and 8's... Now my expectation goes higher!! (I still don't like the "kart's" designs, tough...

you forgot to add even tough it adds nothing to the previous versions except changes in players names
