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

What is wrong with these people?
 
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.

Um, read sarcasm much? That Gundam score is laughable.
