This week's Famitsu scores include the first verdict for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and more.
Gteat scores for Xenoblade X2! I'm getting the $100 collector edition.
it got 35/40 same as Sonic Forces. Famitsu scores are not reliable but I am pretty sure Xenoblade is quality title.
Agreed. While I am sure Xenoblade is going to be a quality title you cannot trust Famitsu reviews.
Yes I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this magazines game scores especially hearing that about Sonic forces. But the team that does the Xenoblade games is a really good Japanese RPG team. All I know about this game is this is not the game sequel with the ones with the mechs like in the Wii U game lol
Sonic forces is a good game that got panned for being sonic. Atleast I know I had loads of fun with it.
Yeah, production quality in the game is fantastic and the controls are fine. I think people are just used to the controls in Generations, which are a bit different, and they had higher expectations after Sonic Mania. By no means was the game a 35/40 or whatever that Famitsu gave it, but it was a solid 6.5-7.5/10 title.
I'm still waiting for the Xenoblade Chronicles + Xenoblade Chronicles X remaster bundle on switch
This, if they did this, I would consider buying a Switch earlier than I planned to.
Cant wait for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 , replaying 1st on 3DS XL
I got it on the 3DS XL as well since the game is almost impossible to find on the Wii now.
Definitely looking forward to picking this up soon, been watching lots of gameplay footage, looks fun!
Great scores. Can't wait to play this!
Im just gonna go in blind and try this out. Never played any of the previous ones and only seen like one trailer
Same here. I think the art style is better than the previous entry(which I never played.) It definitely looks like the kind of game I want to play right now.
The Switch is killing it right now.
I wanted this game until I saw gameplay of the combat. Theres just to much going on on the HUD. I'll pick it up at some point just no longer day one.
Famitsu's scores are so useless. They don't gauge quality at all
so are you saying that XC2 doesn't deserve basically all 9's?
calm down. even if he did, theres nothing wrong with that statement. ppl are allowed to have opinions around you yes?
@derksoolz - calm down? I simply asked a question. Relax dude. I mean famitsu gave Zelda and Mario really high scores. Did they not deserve those? I don't understand, so what sometimes they are right and sometimes they are wrong (like any other gaming site out there basically). I was just trying to determine if the OP felt that XC2 didn't deserve the scores it was getting.
Serious question. Does Famitsu ever give negative reviews? Have there been any recently? Lowest I've ever seen is a "6", and that's rare. I mean has anything ever gotten like a 2?
I've seen a 5 on some 3DS game but for the most part no. Famitsu gave Sonic Forces 9/9/9/8 and RE Umbrella Corps 9/9/9/9. They definitely give some questionable scores.
Famitsu is known to be overly generous with scoring games, but I'm pretty hopeful for Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Even all the mediocre games got great scores, it seems that one thing that matters is that its a Japanese game. There is no trust on Famitsu scores.
