Top Critic Average
Snappy aesthetics and a novel hero make Edge a nifty platformer.
EDGE is a great pick-up-and-play title; the controls are simple and levels can be completed in a couple of minutes, but the desire to improve my ranking kept me coming back for more.
Edge has a lot to give you. You can pick it up and whizz through a few levels at your leisure and just enjoy the blocky, bleepy wonderfulness of it all. Or you can focus on becoming a master of the flashy balancing trickery, eking every last drop out of it, keeping your best times as low as they can possibly be, not missing one damn prism.
Since its debut on iOS, Edge has remained a solid, challenging, and toe-tapping platformer that is still well worth checking out, whether its on the Wii-U eShop, Steam, or for mobile devices. Plus, you get to be a sweet disco cube in space.
Creative levels, an involving soundtrack and a long-lasting experience make Edge a title not to miss. Any flaws Edge might have are quickly overlooked for its sheer quality.

If you haven't owned EDGE on another system or — alternatively — only own it on a touch device, then this is a must-buy.
EDGE is truly something special. The game oozes creativity and constantly introduces awesome concepts that keep you entertained. The whole experience lends itself perfectly to a pick up and play format, and can be highly addicting when trying to set the best time possible. EDGE's innovative gameplay, coupled with its fantastic level design, easily makes it one of my favorite games on the eShop thus far.
I like Edge a lot. It's addictive and elegant in its simplicity, and the geometric world is bizarrely engaging.
EDGE is a great example of value for money. With over a hundred levels to conquer, plus a familiar ranking system, there is plenty to do to keep players busy. Not only is there a fair amount of content, but the game's discounted price of £1.79 makes this easy to recommend to anyone who owns a Wii U and wants a fun, unique experience. This low price point lasts up until January 2nd, 2014, so those interested have plenty of time to grab it. Don't hesitate; at this price, the game is a steal. Go buy it now!
