The latest Famitsu review scores include Halo 3: ODST and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.
Tales of Vesperia (PS3) - 9/9/9/8 Nina Gaiden Σ2 (PS3) 9/9/9/8 Halo 3： ODST (360) – 8/8/8/9 Shin Sengoku Musou MULTI RAID Special (PS3/360) – 8/8/8/8 Good scores all around.
i love how they do there scores very accurate compared to ign or game spot
For comparison purposes, Ninja Gaiden 2 got 9/9/8/8.
Nina Gaiden Σ2 (PS3) 9/9/9/8 Halo 3： ODST (360) – 8/8/8/9 Basically, Nina Gaiden Σ2 (PS3) - Japanese/Japanese/Japanese/Ame rican Halo 3： ODST (360) – Japanese/Japanese/Japanese/Ame rican
then they find the average for the score, i think thats how reviews shud be! :)
Tales of Vesperia (PS3) - 9/9/9/8 Nina Gaiden Σ 2 (PS3) 9/9/9/8 Halo 3： ODST (360) – 8/8/8/9
Perhaps they find bias in the scores you're reporting?
I think a lot of people would be surprised and disappointed at the positive reviews for Halo: ODST. It's very hard to label Famitsu a biased publication owned by Microsoft or American media with a conspiracy; the favorite laments of PS3 fanboys. Edit @ all Famitsu takes the approach of having 4 opinions for its review. All 4 have been consistent in the case of ODST. Why is it not enough to accept that Halo: ODST is a great game? It actually is.
I have a counter argument for you.. The only problem i see is that Famitsu doesnt seem to have any competition or counter scoring company. in the u.s. we have ign/gamespot/gametrailers/game pro/gameinformer/etc etc japan has famitsu..... (someone help me here are there any other companies?) It's like allowing the world to judge us on what games we like based on gamespots reviews only so the one problem with famitsu is that there is no second opinion
famitsu is known for grading based on hype as well.
Reviews are nothing but opinions, so of course people with different tastes are going to give different reviews. Especially when you are talking about cross cultural differences.
lol, I never really cared about disagrees. ;)
Take Famitsu with a grain of salt for FPS reviews. Otherwise Haze beats ODST according to them. Famitsu's Haze score: 9/8/9/8, 34/40 ODST: 8/8/8/9, 33/40
lol that is hilarious! Haze > Halo:ODST in Japan. I have no problems with that assessment.
That's intersting. I will look for more Famitsu FPS scores in the future rather than western reviewers cause I liked Haze and absolutely agree with their review on it.
damn! PS3 shows its true power =D ODST gets fair grade...8, its a little much but its enough to shut those halo fanboys up so it'll suffice =)
Trinity Universe (PS3) – 6/8/8/7 didn't fair so well
Ha ha, they must have. LOL.
probably, or else who knows what ODST would have gotten? =P
Funny how Neogaf is the only one who posts Famitsu review scores yet are never cited. XFactor and Kagari are the only ones who post review scores and news from the magazine yet are never sourced.
The Japanese in general don't appreciate the FPS genre like Americans do; so I would instantly rate ODST higher because of that fact alone. Besides, they gave Killzone 2 an 8-8-8-8, and gave HAZE a higher score than ODST and Killzone 2, so it seems like the more broken a game is, the higher the score.
Halo 3 ODST was rated fairly by this issue
