This week's Famitsu reviews include the first Puppeteer and Killzone: Mercenary scores.
Puuppeteer 36/40, KZ Merc 34/40. Awesome scores. I was so hyped for those games I was going to get them regardless of reviews anyways. So many games coming on Sony systems, it's getting overwhelming.
I am not a fan of Famitsu review scores. I feel they overscore games a lot. That said, I most definitely cannot wait for Puppeteer. After the recent demo they released, I am absolutely blown away by this game. The humour, the voice acting, the game mechanics.. everything feels and sounds so right,
Yeah their average review score is about 31/40 -- more than 75%. Japan doesn't really take the magazine seriously, so I don't see why others should. http://www.gamerevolution.c...
I haven't played any Puppeteer demos yet but from the trailers and previews i have to say this looks to be one of the most thought out and technically brilliant platformers around. Definitely getting this and Rayman. Also, the KZ Mercs Beta has me addicted. Best thing on Vita by miles and I absolutely loved AC Liberation to death. I can't wait. Adding on GTA V and September is one epic month of awesome games!
Really? On Sony systems? Plural? As in Vita too? Overwhelming amount of games on Vita? Really?
People are still trolling the Vita? Really?
You must not be planning on being able to comment for very long. Enough with the trolling.
Stop you're embarrassing yourself gamecents.
My heart stopped a little i thought KZ review for PS4 Mercenarys is awesome playing the beta
Here is my take on KZ multiplayer for vita. It is one of the worst/clunky systems I have ever used, and the controls are just plain bad. But, for a handheld it is pretty good and even with all those flaws, once you can push through the controls and reprogram your hands, it is rather enjoyable and satisfying as a FPS handheld.
Requires a grip accessory for sure. I ordered one after trying to play the KZ demo. It looks gorgeous, but the map is too small.
@LoveOfTheGame None of those problems are specific to the KZM beta, so I'm not totally convinced that you've actually played it, or have a vita. I didn't find many problems with the controls besides the acceleration on aiming and a bit of lag, but that may be on my side.
A good FPS on Vita ? Nice. Vita could be an awesome FPS on the go machine.
Puuppeteer is a day one huge fan of KZ so glad its also getting warm reception
90/100 Pupeteer 85/100 Killzone
That is true but there is two point difference between the two scores. So it is unfair to covert it to out of a hundred because making out of a hundred means there are 5 points difference between the two when in reality there is only two
That's like saying there's only 1 point between 3/5 and 4/5 and it's unfair to say it's 60/100 and 80/100. Maths is maths.
Killzone: Mercenary looks generic from what i saw, the graphics look like ps2, bad textures masked with decent visual effects. great scores for Puuppeteer tho, can't wait for it!
Killzone Mercenary is super fun and it looks nice. Not sure what you mean by saying it's generic.
It's the best looking vita game out there! @the disagree. Name 1 game that looks better than KZ on the vita. Other games look nice but overall to much jaggies.
Lol, I got your back dodo :) The Vita has the greatest multiplayer killer app in Killzone Mercenary. If you don't believe me then it only means you haven't experienced it for yourselves. I've logged more time on the single level beta then I care to admit. The game is just addictively fun, plays brilliantly, and looks gorgeous on the Vita's oled screen.
Duhh , Mercenary looks much better then killzone .
Some would prefer the aesthetics of LBP, dragons crown, etc. but that would be a personal preference. Technically KZ is probably the Vita king though for now.
gotta get one of those ps2's man! :D remember this is a handheld, this is suppose to be compared to a 3ds or any other portable device. considering what it can achieve is great :) plus the mutiplayer is addicting even if it isnt that rich, plus though we've only seen one game mode and one map which ive put like 9 hours into already because i like it.. a lot :)
look at this http://images.vg247.com/cur... http://www.gaming-age.com/w... like i said, bad textures masked with decent visual effects. @ dodo101 RE: Revelations, Metal Gear Solid 3D and Dream Drop Distance all on 3DS
@j-blaze Those images only have noticeable jaggies and sub-par looking textures on the your computer because the image is enlarged. On the vita's screen it looks absolutely stunning. If you actually had a vita you wouldn't be trying so hard to bash this game.
Oh J-blaze you see what you want to see lol The rest of us see one of the most graphically impressive handheld games ever made, with damn good gameplay too.
I think the comment from Mr Blaze can be discounted given his chequered history towards anything Sony related.
Name a portable game that looks better graphically. And you should download the beta first. It's definitely not "generic". It's rather fun. Do you not watch Kids Shows? Don't knock it till you try it!
-__- No, I'm not trying to start anything. j-blaze was a troll.
As long as you acknowledge that is your opinion j-blaze and it seems to be in the minority. Personally I'm looking forward to both of the games you mentioned.
@j-blaze It's hard to take you seriously with you having only two bubbles... You're just a troll. Stop trolling please.
I got 2 bubbles. YOU TRYIN TO START SOMETHING TYLEEEER!
Are u kidding me? Resistance on the Vita maybe looks like a PS2 game. Killzone on the Vita is the best looking game yet! It looks just incredible and is definately PS3 quality! Graphics are amazing!
How the hell did puppeteer get a higher score then KZM
Who cares, they both scored great! Great games are coming to PS consoles!
Maybe it's a better game?
You must not take a score of this magazine seriously, but killzone VITA is good.
no doubts, an 8 or a 9 for a portable fps, or hell even any game for that matter is really good! :)
Killzone Vita plays and looks amazing , I was quite shocked to see it looking so good. I have played about 2 hours of the Beta.
i love the killzone mercenary beta but it needs a few tweeks 1) u need to on shoreline the metal things that spin around they sometimes get get and stop spining 2) when u knife someone in the head the body jus shakes and goes through ur body but apart from that ill give it 8.9 out of 10 thats just4 the beta
This Killzone Mercenary video is amazing http://www.youtube.com/watc... Makes me want a Vita
so when famitsu gives a wiiu game a near perfect" well they also gave FF13 perfect" when sony games get good famitsu scores"wow awesome score" the hypocrisy on thise site never ceases to amaze me.
I don't think you understand what hypocrisy means. For there to hypocrisy here, the people who praised this review would actually have had been the same who used 13-2 to discredit said Nintendo title, and I somehow doubt they did. Oh and about people not using FF13-2 to discredit Playstation review scores http://n4g.com/news/1128498... Wanna try again?
yeah i forgot one of Sony's studio made yakuza 5,thats my bad i guess, i must have mised when Sony purchased SEGA. do you need me go though every famitsu Nintendo review article too to see which of these guys are hypocrites?.or can i just say dcj0524 and leave it at that?
Go ahead, I doubt you will find many people displaying the hypocrisy you say are present in this article, More so if you don't count the biggest hypocrite I've seen in this article, yourself.
I dont like KZ mercenary due to the fact that it uses aim acceleration instead of the normal aiming im used to. Aim acceleration accelerates the aiming as for how longer you hold the stick, and im not used to that. Also, this is nowhere near a console like multiplayer experience. I get spawn killed lots of times, some bad lag also, and sometimes it kicks me out and my xp is gone.
