Monster Hunter 3 was released in Japan over the weekend, but no Famitsu review was provided in last week's issue. Typically, however, the magazine waits a few days to review some of the bigger titles.
Le Gasp! Well hopefully sometime next year hopefully in the first two months the US and EU will be able to experience the game.
woot great score, so close
lawl saw the change, so it got perfect huh, nvm my last comment then
I simply don't trust Famitsu. They gave haze and last remanent exceptionally high scores too, and see what happened? Not saying MH3 is a bad game though, but Famitsu cannot be trusted at all.
But I think this review is probably accurate, it is the only wii game of it's kind.
i agree, i dunno if its perfect but i think its a damn good game
theres no such thing as a perfect game gta4 definitely wasn't a perfect games because people have already stopped playing it, but ign gave them a perfect score regardless because they dont care if a game last longer then a few months i can safely say that most high-end mmos are better then the singleplayer games that get rated high by gaming websites that hardly have any sort of legitimacy, because they aren't really playing the games, because they need to move on to the next ones monster hunter is probably one of the best games in terms of animations, system design, and online support. but people in america dont want to give it any sort of legitimacy because they want american games to win, they want xbox to win because xbox was made in america and they have this stupid mentality behind their heads of competition between countries
"but Famitsu cannot be trusted at all." Le opinion?
Opinion ? Not much a need to get on some high horse here . The game is probably fine or even great , but famitsu reviews are indeed severely flawed .
umm well one thing we should all remember is that Famitsu is based in Japan if I'm not mistaken... so kind of outside of our own culture... they see things differently... handhelds and rpgs are much more popular... crazy tv shows... odd computer games... different reviews for games the US/EU hate... see where I'm going here?
Awesome. Can't wait to buy it.
I called it! MH 3 is truly something special. A real AAA quality title made just for wii. Normally nintendo is the only folks who put that much effort into their titles. It apparently shows.
Famitsu rate games depends on its popularity and hype. Monster Hunter franchise has become huge in Japan so its a no brainier that they give it such a high score.
This is the third Wii game to get a perfect score from Famitsu. Pretty impressive. Come on and announce a western release.
"SAN MATEO, Calif. — August 3, 2009 — Capcom® Entertainment, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that Monster Hunter™ Tri will be released in both North America and Europe for Nintendo’s Wii™ system in early 2010." http://www.nintendoeverythi...
Oh crap; Can't believe I missed that. Thanks...bubbles+
why is it noone questions famitsu scores until a wii game gets a good score? I didn't see anyone arguing with gears 2 score or the Killzone 2 score. Why is it suddenly not a reputable publication when A game like tri gets good reviews?
i guess cuz perfect scores are more controversial
you didnt see it , because you simply didnt read it , every times famitsu post scores we question them . And it was indeed the case with Gow2
The first score was a mistake the real score is 40/40 ;)
so the 40/40 is confirmed?
Famitsu gave a really high score to Haze and it sucked. I'm buying MH 3 if it comes over to NA, but I'll wait for some more reviews.
Its obviously in a sense a bit of bias, since MH will always score high. But in the end they also love it.
So is a western made game going to Japan ;)
the game is pretty amazing... great dificult level, HUGE, hard and strategic bosses big and detailed world, good gameplay... it's all there... if you liked Phantasy Star Online you will proly like this one too
40/40 in famitsu translates to B/A- i cant wait. something to get that cpu goin on my wii besides that blue light that glows all day.
Monster Hunter games are some of my favorite games of all time. So good.
At least that's what they say. They have been proved wrong.
when does famitsu come out this week? i hear soon they will change release days to thursday
