Famitsu's coming out on Thursday this week, I think most people forgot. So the leaks are a day early too! Don't you want to know what Famitsu thinks of the PS3 launch games? :D

Reviews:

Sega Golf PS3 - 7/7/7/7
Genji PS3 - 7/7/7/8
Resistance - 9/8/8/8
Gundam PS3 - 8/8/8/8
Ridge Racer 7 - 9/9/9/9

Area 51 (PS2) - 7/7/6/7
Mai-Otome (PS2) - 5/6/6/6
I's Pure (PS2) - 6/7/6/6
Black Jack (DS) - 8/8/8/7
Chao Manga School (DS) - 5/6/6/5

Review Comments:

Sega Golf:

- Good tempo
- You can't accurately determine where your shot will fall
- Doesn't really look next-generation

Genji:

- Camera sucks, but looks great
- Challenging for beginners
- Good amount of content
- Good controls

Resistance:

- Standard FPS gameplay
- Excellent netplay
- Very high standard of next-generation

Gundam:

- Excellent models of Mobile Suits
- Opinions on the game are divided because it relies heavily on accurate input
- The systems are problematic
- Great textures
- Tons of optional and unlockable content
- Overall it's satisfying even though opinions are divided on it

Ridge Racer 7:

- Totally satisfactory
- The amount of content is totally satisfying
- The high quality of the graphics and sound are very pleasing

Not bad. I bet RR7 will get low 8s/high 7s and Resistance will get low 9s/high 8s in the States though.

Thanks duckroll.

Judging by Famitsu, it seems Resistance is pretty much what we all though it would be - an atmospheric, very enjoyable FPS that doesn't really differentiate from other FPS.

Famitsu is the Japanese gaming bible, they would never rank a game high unless it was truly a quality title that was worth the full price tag, I guess this means I'm going to have to preorder all of these games

Yes, but you have to remember that Japanese tastes differ radically from American tastes. Nintendogs got 40/40 in Famitsu, and it didn't get similar scores here.
