Famitsu 5/22

Translation of Gyakuten Kenji/Ace Attorney Investigations review:

From JapaneseGIRL @ the Court Record forums said:
reviewer 山本ペンキ 9/10
弁護士から検事に職業が変わっていますが、ゲームの根幹はしっかりと継承。犯行現場を再現できる“情報再現”など、新たな要素も魅力です。もちろん『逆転』シリーズならではのムジュンを暴く展開もアツイ! 証拠を駆使して、相手の証言を突き崩すせめぎ合いは相変わらず楽しいです。
The basis of the game was succeeded though hero's occupation changed from the lawyer into the prosecutor.
The new elements such as information reproduction modes are attractive.
Of course there is the hot story to uncover contradiction only by the Gyakuten series.
It is pleasant that I refute the testimony of the criminal with evidence.

reviewer ウワーマン 9/10
やはり演出が出色のデキ。メッセージのタイミングや効果音の使いかたなど、細かな面まで気を配り、大いに盛り上げてくれる。主役は御剣になったが、大まかなプレイ感覚は以前のシリーズとほぼ同じ。現場が対決の場になるため、風変わりなシチュエーションが増えるのはよかった。
Direction is splendid.
Timing of message and the sound effects enliven the game.
Even if Mitsurugi becomes a hero, the sense to play does not change very much.
Being possible to confront it in the scene of the crime was different from Gyakuten Saiban, and I was interesting.

reviewer 深見参段 8/10
舞台が法廷から現場に変わったものの、逆転がキーワードのシナリオは健在。強引すぎる場面や、既存キャラの印象が強すぎる感はありますが、あっと驚く仕掛けにうなることも。捜査時のミニキャラや臨場感が増した会話画面など、新しい試みが違和感なく溶け込んでいるのはお見事。
"Gyakuten" is still a key word in the scenario though the stage of the game shifted from court to the scene of the crime.
I thought that story development was forcible. In addition, I thought that the impression of the people who appeared for Gyakuten Saiban series was too strong.
I was surprised by a splendid device.
Mini characters and the screens of the conversation with the sense of reality, new elements go well.

reviewer メルヘン須藤 8/10
斬新な進化はなくとも、やはり『逆転』シリーズ。演出や盛り上げかたが絶妙で、ロジックや推理がハマったときの爽快感は抜群。ファンがニヤリとする要素も満載だったり。また、1度の捜査範囲の狭さがいい塩梅で、遊びやすい。強引な推理や展開が多いのは、らしさと言うべきか。
There is not the outstanding evolution, but Gyakuten series is interesting.
Direction is exquisiteness.
When the logic mode and inference succeed, I am refreshing.
Fans of the series have nice events.
It is easy to play narrowness of the investigation range just well.
There are forcible inference and development. However, it may be said that these are qualities of Gyakuten series.

Also gameplay around 16 hours apparently.

Saw some of the End of Eternity stuff. Battle system explanation and whatnot.
System is called t.A.B. (try attack battle).

Before anyone gets too excited/angry, let me point out that's a remake of a GBC game.

A reasonable source of rage, since that never came out here (too late in the GBC's life, and cart size and use thereof would have made translation a nightmare). I was hoping it would have been added to Star Ocean: Second Evolution as a post-game scenario, since it was the direct sequel to the game it was a remake of, Star Ocean: the Second Story.

It would be nice if they pulled a FF4: the After Years here.

Hmm, okay I saw it... same artwork as Portable Ops...
Ugh, seeing the image reminded me of something...

Yoji Shinkawa said that MGS4 was the last Metal Gear game he'd be doing design and art for. We're going to be stuck with Ashley Wood on mainline games too, now.

His art isn't bad, and it's very unique, but god damn. The tone of his work is completely different from Shinkawa's, and not in a refreshing way. It's really distracting.

Dude what are you talking about Ashley Wood's art is clearly fitting for the Metal Gear universe and furthermore

Wait, it's an SRPG? Why'd they have to get their porn all up ins my strategy.
Queen's Blade is basically soft core hentai, what did you expect?

Imagine the shittiest version of Dynasty Warriors possible and top it off with shitty boss fights that all play exactly the same. Then you have the stiff controls and low-grade PS2 graphics (That filter is mainly just some cheap effect placed over the screen rather than something cool like what you saw in say, Stretch Panic) complete with garbage animation.

Ugh. Such a disappointment. From what I've seen the game looked to be awesome. The game looked really cool and could have been great in the right hands. Unfortunately Jaleco did not pull a Wayforward.

Aeana said:
No. Keep in mind that everything is cardboard (flat) like Paper Mario.

It certainly doesn't look so from that picture.

Good to see nice scores for Kingdom Hearts. Seems this game has more of what made the Organization interesting in CoM and less of what made it stupid in KHII.

Man, those guys love Sony. If Sony isn't at the top, they don't know what to do with themselves. Heh, heh.

too bad for kizuna.

NinoKuni looks fantastic as expected. Iirc we're still waiting for the anouncement of a second platform. Hopefully they hint at something in those 5 pages of text.

What is with all the Armored Core games 0_o
 
And From Software unleashed its porthammer...

Tip to Sony: Skip portable on your handheld's name next time


Level 5 scoop is great, Ninokuni looks freaking awesome. Now the localizations worries as usual (not just about their existence but their timing) :/

Oh darn. I just realized Tenchu 3 is the From Software countdown then :( Boooooooooo

They're milking those franchises for all they're worth now. The PSP will get a heavy dose of Armored Core and Tenchu over the next few months. Let's hope their strategy works.
