The latest Famitsu review scores include DmC Devil May Cry.
so is this a fake review or what?
Who can say? Famitsu reviews are about as reliable as IGN's.
I dislike IGN as well, but Famitsu is way worse. Famitsu is well known to take pay offs.
Famitsu used be a very reputed publication a decade ago but now they are just another bunch of greedy bastards who give always give great reviews to big publisher games. I havent read a single preview/review for DmC that evaluates the game properly on the basis of gameplay, graphics, mechanics, sound, animation and performance. These are basic things in a hardcore technical hack and slash like DMC. Everybody just keeps saying, "it is great, everything is fine! It is better or at least the same as older DMCs." None of the reviews are objective and that is why they look like paid reviews. I do not believe any of the reviews until they evaluate the game properly based on the above criteria. Currently the reviews are like the following image,
I dont think dead mouse is doing the music for DMC, I thought it was CombiChrist?
It's real..it's famitsu..a Japanese game magazine
Yes, Famitsu is real... their reviews are not. Famitsu's reviews are always plus 3 or 4 of what they should be. I've seen numerous times them rating games with an 8 or 9 and the general consensus on Metacritic gives them a 5 or 6.
To answer your question, NT was referring to online reviews posted before the embargo has been lifted, not print media. http://www.oxm.co.uk/48954/... Honestly though Im a bit surprised myself. Thats the same score DMC3 was given by them and I was pretty sure that Japanese reviewers were going to hate this new western DmC. Cant wait to try it out for myself next week.
DREK!!!!!!!!! Welcome back to N4g. Where nothings changed lol
Thats right fella's, strap on those tin foil hats, its gonna be a wild ride.
It may as well be. It's just a total of four arbitrary scores devoid of anything resembling context. Famitsu reviews are never terribly detailed, but they DO do a good job of pointing out the relative strengths and weaknesses of games, concisely... but the actual scores they give seldom reflect those qualitative judgments. You know, like every other review you see posted here: reviews that are scathing in criticism but dole out 9s and 10s; reviews that are nothing but praise that dole out 5s and 6s.
*bows down to Bayonetta's perfect score.
Famitsu give a Resident Evil 6 a maximum score (10/10/10/9) , so take a grain of salt this review...
My thought exactly
Yep. Famitsu rates everything high. http://www.gamerevolution.c... And Japanese gamers agree with the author of that piece: http://www.gamerevolution.c...
LOL oh my god. Nearly perfect scores across the board....
Always take stuff with a grain of salt, but DmC Devil May Cry is worthy of those scores.
I hate the art style and design
Well put it this way I've learnt something about Famists...they ALWAYS give Japanese titles good reviews Now your proberly thinking "well this dmc isn't Japanese developed" BUT it's still Japanese in it's brand name. Hell these guys give FF13, F13-2, RE6 nearly perfect scores
Well, if you go by this issue, then the two highest rated games were one western game and one western developed game. The others were Japanese. Also: DMC is gonna get its fair share of 8s and 9s everywhere else too. As it already has from magazines.
nice to see DMC is getting good reviews, def picking up the game when it launches
Can't wait for it, and it's so close now!
What. The hell. Is this? "Otometeki Koi Kakumei Love Revo!! 100kg Karahajimaru-Koimonogatari&quo t; WILL THAT EVEN FIT ON THE BOX??
That title is weird even for Japanese standards lol.
That feeling when only PSP games get reviewed cus there are no Vita games.
does that mean Nintendo has no games either? -_-
He meant that no Vita games got released. He's right. The next Vita games don't release in Japan until January 24th, so they miss this issue of the Weekly Famitsu.
I tried the demo....not tricking me into buying this crap "DMC".
The demo isnt tricking anybody ...its more like the demo screams : DONT BUY ME LET ME DIE LMAO
"I tried the demo....not tricking me into buying this crap "DMC"." Try and have an open mind man, there's a lot of people riding on the coat-tails of hatred here on Negativity4Gamers. DMC seems to be receiving pretty good reviews, and these are reviews of the full game, from start to finish, not of a demo of an incomplete build. I'm not sure anybody's trying to trick anyone, if anything the people bashing the game before they've even played the final build could be seen as the ones trying to trick people.
A demo is a taste of the full game. The controls were terrible, the gameplay was boring, the enemies were boring the design looked bad. I'm not getting this game because I hated the demo which should serve the purpose of giving you a taste of the full game and also because of the way Tameem acted. People like him do not deserve my hard earned money. It's not because others hate this "DMC" so I hate it too just to be "cool" or "accepted". That's not the case, I made up my own mind because of the things I wrote down. After the demo and lot's of gameplay videos it's safe to say that this game is a piece of shit and doesn't deserve the DMC name. People just need to accept the fact that some of us just don't like this garbage but I actually gave a chance to this game.
i'm not usually a fan of dmc, but if ninja theory's making it, then i'm interested. Just beat heavenly sword, blew my expectations away. if your a mgs fan then revengeance looks like it's ruining the character and atmosphere and everything that i liked about mgs, but if revengeance is a great standalone title then heck yes i'll play it. that's why i think any dmc fan not willing to enjoy this game if it ends up being great is an idiot.
"that's why i think any dmc fan not willing to enjoy this game if it ends up being great is an idiot." And that's why no one gives a sh*t about your opinion. You are just like any other DmC fanboy that spouts bs and tries to pass his own opinion as a fact. I loved actual Devil May Cry games (second one, not so much) since the first one and I played them to death. And after watching crap ton of material for DmC and then playing that horrible demo, I decided to not buy it. Oh and, it won't end up being great. There won't be any difference to combat or anything else from the demo considering Tameem himself said that they won't be fixing anything until the actual game comes out. Enjoy your three hit SSSensational combos. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
