Famitsu has the first reviews of Quantum Theory and Okamiden, and has reviewed Dead Rising 2 and other titles this week.
That Okamiden review... I've been waiting to hear how the game would turn out. I don't think it scored as high as Okami, but hey, it still sounds like a pretty darn good game. I have to get it as I'm a huge fan of the original.
A good/bad shooter game when they see it.
wich is the perfect Score in famitsu? Dead Rising WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW
Don't trust what Famitsu said about Quantum Theory, the footage looked terrible.
Not to mention the cheesy lines....
Thing is, for Famitsu, 8/8/8/7 means the game IS terrible. =P j/k, but they tend to overrate games all the time (with the occasional underrate).
they overrate Japanese games, underrate western games
Quantum Theory (PS3/360) – 8/8/8/7 weeee cant wait to get it a few weeks left
Really? The demo was horrible IMHO. Not going to go the Gears-clone route in the hopes the freaks dont come out, but come on? It was a pretty crappy attempt to ride on the coat tails of a good series.
They gave Quabtum theory good scores.
yea I'm shocked as well, but I never trust Famitsu scores anyway. The demo sucked so bad that there's no way it gets over 7.
I never trust Famitsu scores too. Look at the scores Famitsu gave to Final Fantasy XIII (39/40). Everyone thought XIII was going to be an excellent game according to Famitsus scores. However, when it was finally out in stores the majority of gamers (both old and new) were sorely disappointed. As for Quantum Theory, that 8/8/8/7/ is probably a 5/5/5/6 to the Famitsu reviewers.
They also gave Haze and The Last Remnant good scores. Famitsu is unreliable on a good day.
The Last Remnant was a good game, just got caught up in the whole "bash JRPGs trend" that's been so popular the last couple years. Try giving the game a whirl on PC or install it to your x360 hdd.
Pretty good scores for Dead Rising 2!
I can't wait to read a review with words though. Still, preordered it in amazon already.
Quantum Theory (PS3/360) – 8/8/8/7 Once again proves that Famitsus review scores are completely random.
*looks at Quantum Theory scores* *blocks the word "Famitsu" from appearing anywhere in his browser*
so quantum theory doesn't suck?
i am unsure now. queerdumb theory recieved a bad review from the west, but from the east (who are new to this genre) love it. well i think i will trust the west on this one.
Great Score for Dead Rising. Going to pre order today I think.
They are waaaay too generous at japanese devs.
Quantum theory 1/1/1/1
8887 lmao That game is pure shit, biasitsu!
I wasn't too impressed with the Quantum Theory demo. The graphics were pretty nice, but the gameplay seemed clunky and uninspired. Interestingly enough, this was one game that I actually thought the PS3 version looked slightly better than the 360 version. Vanquish was another game like that. It seems to be happening more often nowadays.
Throw Fillena and USE THE MELEE SYSTEM MORE. I use to play FPS all the damn time, and here's what I eventually realized all of them are... duck, shoot, duck, shoot, duck, shoot, run, cover, grenade, duck, shoot, duck, shoot, duck, shoot, rinse & repeat. At least there are some actual game mechanics in this.
The textures and materials for the environments were god awful! I felt like I was playing the bastard child of GOW, in terms of environmental graphics. Gameplay wise was enjoyable. Still feels like a gears rip off, though.
