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...
then your not playing it because you don't like it, not because you refuse to like it because it screwed up dmc's universe, which i'm fine with
"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." Way to twist his words and create an argument out of nothing. And in actual fact, as a neutral observer over the last few months it's actually the people bashing the game months before it's even released that look like they are spouting bs and trying to pass their own opinion as fact seeing as they haven't actually even played the final build yet. GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME makes a very valid point, it looks like so called fans of the Devil May Cry series are going to miss out on a very good entry to the series because they're so wrapped up in hatred purely for the sake of hating.
"Enjoy your three hit SSSensational combos." This mentality is what is wrong with people. It's not that you can't do varied combos that are difficult to pull off - it's the fact that other "less-skilled" players can get similar scores using easier or more repetitive methods. Letting somebody else's adeptness with a game get in the way of your own personal enjoyment is both asinine and elitism at it's worst. If you don't want to get a three hit SSS, DO SOMETHING HARDER. It doesn't take anything away from you - in fact, you look better and flashier than others while doing so. Not that anybody cares...
"..it's the fact that other "less-skilled" players can get similar scores using easier or more repetitive methods." "I have no idea what I'm talking about heauheauhae" Let's compare this to the old games. In Devil May Cry 1-3-4, to get SSS you had to use everything that was available to you. People who used the "repetitive" combos always managed to get A's and such, which is not bad, but to get an S let alone SSS, you had to use your pistol, a wide variety of different combos, switch style (for DMC 4), dodge on time (barely filled the style meter) or taunt (filled it even less than dodge). Now onto DmC. All you have to do is do one perfect dodge (easy as hell to do once you're used to timing), two hits with Rebellion and then heavy shockwave attack with the axe. Keep babbling about how open minded you are. Try to keep using big words or try to write complicated sentences in your own right as much as you want. It won't change the fact that DmC is an utterly sh*t game and it has nothing to do with "lel ur mad cauz u dun die with one hit lol elitist". It's always easy to blame one party for being "elitist" while failing to give a decent example regarding why do you think that this "problem" isn't important and can actually be considered as a feature to get the newcomers warm to the game or at least let the people who aren't good at the game some more enjoyment... Meanwhile, in Dante Must Die, you get 2 bars drained from your health in DmC (which was three+ times of that in Devil May Cry 3). Talk about giving hardcore fans what they want (not really) while pandering to the casual crowd with lower difficulty levels named like they are the hardest ones. --------------- "we all know you don't like the new dmc and that's why no one gives a damn about your opinion. Looking forward too this game." -you don't like this game -your "opinion" is invalid ahahaha what a story Mark! How does it feel to be this edgy and being the cancer of the video game industry and being the sole reason that this console generation has become utterly crap? Also remember to buy Overstrike too. I heard EA dumbed it down for a certain crowd, so that they can enjoy it too. ----------------- "Most people never give Enslaved a chance, either. It's very depressing. Such an amazing story! I can't wait for DMC!" -Both Heavenly Sword And Enslaved written by decent writers that are hired by NT and have no affiliations with Capcom or NT whatsoever. -DmC is being written by an edgy manchild NT employee who's been insulting the actual fanbase since day 1 and also loves to self insert...
MGS Revengeance was taken over by Platinum games. I have more expectations and respect for them than for Ninja Theory (who I have no respect for).
I agree. Ninja Theory has made two games. Both were two of the best games I've ever played. Most people never give Enslaved a chance, either. It's very depressing. Such an amazing story! I can't wait for DMC!
I second that! Enslaved was great!!!
Where's the good story on Enslaved? You guys should read 3-4 books a year other than playing only videogames. Aaaaand DmC scored as LittleBigKarting that is a really bad/average game without fun gameplay.
Haha, I honestly thought this game wouldn't be up to the expectations of those that dwell in the land of the rising sun seeing as NT is western. The game comes out Jan 13 over there, this quite a pleasant surprise, I thought that America and Europe reviewers would rate this well, but not Japan. Color me excited. I can't wait for this to release here. Just 1 more week.
@ Blacktric: we all know you don't like the new dmc and that's why no one gives a damn about your opinion. Looking forward too this game.
FINALLY someone gives LBP Karting the love it deserves. Best kart racer since Mario Kart 64. Seriously. I haven't met a person who doesn't enjoy it. I have, however, heard several reviewers trash it...for God knows what. They don't seem to give good reasons.
You should try sega all stars racing!!!
The game is solid crap. LBK I mean Bad gameplay, bad unresponsive controls, stupid boost system, lack of sense of speed, and also average graphic. It's pretty bad.
You forgot broken online.
Totally your opinion,no actual facts especially when u didn't play the full game...beginning to end...can't wait to play this beautiful looking interesting game! Remember haters...HATE is really LOVE in denial....you so-called haters LOVE to be in EVERY DmC forum,knowing you're going to be playing DmC like the rest of us when Jan,15 drops!!...have fun playing I know I will!!
@elda lol, the guy isn't even talking about DMC pff and the fanboys call us the haters.
@mocat I learnt from a while that lots of people on N4G only looks at pics and is not able to read, a big majority of those who can actually read, don't understand what they read and finally, most of those who understand what they read, don't give a crap because they already have their opinions set in stone. That's why I become a troll every time I post here in the comment section :p And I quite enjoy it I must say :D Shame on me! :p
Devil May Cry 3 - 9 / 9 / 8 / 8 DmC Devil May Cry - 8 / 9 / 8 / 9 The same score... Yeah, as I've always done before with famitsu, I take their opinion with a large pinch of salt.
LOL DmC as good as DMC 3 YEAH SUREEEEEEEE
Famitsu gave FFXIII & RE6 39/40 the ppl who review games there r clueless beyond imagination to take any review score from them seriously means to be also clueless & have the brain of a brick.
I can understand the die hard fans of the series being pretty pissed of with how Ninja Theory "treated" ye guys in regards to all the changes, it would be the same if Hideo Kojima handed the reigns of Metal Gear Solid to another dev team and they thought they should change Solid Snake's design, I'd be furious! But, me being someone who really enjoyed the past Devil May Cry games, but not a die hard fan, have to admit that the DmC demo was pretty good, gorgeous graphics, great art direction and satisfying combat, the boss battle was really well done and it's design was gruesomely awesome. Moral of the story, I can understand the hate, but doesn't take away from the fact that it, well the demo, was really good and I have no reason as to way the full game won't be.
I agree with your point entirely mate. I don't understand the hate either. However Dantes redesign isn't Ninja theory's doing. It's Capcom. The initial designs of dante were prettty close to what he looked like in DMC 3 but when NT presented them to Capcom they were told they wanted him to be radically altered. Thus they went back to the drawing board and came up with the new Dante and i honestly wouldn't be surprised if the whole games narrative ends up being about how he ends up with White hair and is the bad asss we all know and love.
maybe just maybe, if we ask for it enough they could make a DLC skin that makes him look like the old Dante. :D
They hate the game, so everyone should hate it too. Simple. Anyone who wants to give the game a try is either disagreed with or put down. It's pretty sad. I think the game should be given a chance but what do I know?
I can see why they're so upset, but like I said, the demo was very very good, and I came across a GIF with regards to DmC and .......... *SPOILER* *SPOILER* *SPOILER* ......... He does, at some point in the game, have shoulder length white hair, but I digress. *END SPOILER* The demo was good enough to entice me to buy it. That, along with Devil May Cry HD & Devil May Cry 4 for €85, not a bad deal right there.
DmC sucks = 5/10
Famitsu has always been total rubbish, but the amount of people that literally want this game to do terrible makes me laugh.
I wouldn't be surprized if they bribed other western developers, in my opinion I think they have or threaterned them, but Famitsu is s far up a load of Japanese developers arse's that it wouldn't even need a bribe off them.
Omg dante looks different! somehow that makes the entire game suck!......seriously, this hate is getting old.
The controls are pretty much the same as other DMC's bashing a game for new reason? Sounds like RE6 all over again.
RE6 got hate for no real reason? Not survival horror, QTE every 5 seconds, Horrid camera that sometimes makes the game impossible to play, broken cover system, ridiculous over the top action setpieces, cheap deaths that have nothing to do with your skill, just 2 or 3 puzzles in the whole goddamn game, overpowered melee... Should I go on? You shouldnt talk about things you know nothing about.
Ahhhhh someone who thinks this game is getting hate because of the hair/design How clueless...yes thats right jump on the "I'm going to defend it and be all noble despite not having a clue whats going on" bandwagon
It's ironic because the only comments here that mention Dante's design are the ones who like this piece of crap. We've gotten over Dante's design. The real problem is gameplay. But to be fair, it's not just DmC that suffers from this problem. A lot of hack n slash games have been watered down these days.
Can you please elaborate on why the gameplay is bad? It feels just like DMC4 as far as controls and gameplay go. Combo system is pretty good (not as great as Bayonetta) and the rating system is exactly the same as past installments. You can switch weapons mid-combo just like DMC 3 and 4. The only thing thats truly different about this game is the art style and presentation. I dont know. Maybe I see things differently. I just dont understand the hate this game gets from westerners.
