Is that Famitsu or Famitsu Xbox360? I hope the former so that might explain the DoAX2 > LP thing.

There reviews never make any sense...

but where the f*ck is Blue Dragon review?


Dunno, but the Lost Planet review seems pretty realistic. As Ryan from KP was talking on the 1up Yours Podcast, Japanese gaming journalism has taken a step in the wrong direction. The relationships between journalists and publishers.....blah blah

I wonder why people are still amazed bu Famistu reviews.

For **** sake, they gave True Crime NY a huge 34/40 and probably 32/40 to Madagascar !!!

Their reviews are aimed towards mainstream audience.

Someone remind me. What did Gundam get again?

Please tell me nobody takes Famitsu reviews seriously...

There are ton of people who think Famitsu reviews are an absolute reference. Hell, I even got insulted by a reader for saying that reviews is just a minor part of the magazine that has not a big importance.

:lol @ the watermarks.

"No Blue Dragon review? This is the Famitsu Xbox 360 magazine right?"

"Isn't it getting annoying how Jeux-France is taking info from the scans?"

"You guys have the final version, but no review this week? lol"

I guess they were so blown away by Blue Dragon that they felt they needed to devote week to finishing it before they write the review. :D

Famitsu Xbox360 is a monthly magazine.

Or they put it off so that they could replay the apparently awesome Sonic 360. I'm predicting straight tens for Blue Dragon. It's got a lot of cash behind it, and these reviews are ad space. Not that it won't be a fantastic game, but these scores are completely removed from any measurement of a games quality.

Ughhh... Huhh... Guess they're saving it for the regular Famitsu then?

Maybe the Xbox review crew were so used to having nothing to review that the holiday offerings overwhelmed them? :lol

Sonic getting anything above a 4 (Total) is offensive. The game is so busted and unplayable that it isn't even funny.

Anyone that have ever had a Famitsu in his hands knows for sure that their reviews are pure bullshit. I can understand its prestige in the early inet years, 10 years ago or so, but right know everebody should know how famitsu reviews are.
