The latest Famitsu review scores include one of the first Vanquish reviews, Medal of Honor, a near perfect score, and more.
Vanquish sounds good!! Then again... Famitsu seems to give western-themed games developed in Japan fairly high scores. Didn't they give Quantum Theory 7's and FFXIII 9's and 10's? I'll probably pick Vanquish up sometime regardless.
I'm getting it because the demo was fun as hell. Whatever the reviews are, ain't gonna stop me from getting it.
39/40 almost flawless. Does anybody know any other reviews for this game?
there's a 3/5 one by umm, some sort of unknown site, that review basically said fans only, I dunno if i'd trust it though, the review was a bit weird and they didn't even play the first game.
@frostyhat123 Yah, Naruto getting a 39/40. Looks pretty good. Played the first one and liked it, was only missing the online component which this one has. As for Vanquish, the first demo I thought was OK. I loved the challenge mode demo from the Japanese PSN store, hard and fun.
I'll eventually get it, but I really wished it had co-op or multiplayer. The score for Naruto is no surprise, a lot of hard work went into that game. It's the best translation of manga to video ever.
I loved the first Naruto UNS, but a 39/40?? Wow I am so pumped for this game!!
There will be a review on MediaKick ( http://mediakick.org) 9am (BST) Friday.
After playing the demo, I definitely want this game.
Added to must buy in October list...
from gameinformer cuz you will probably beat the game in about 4hrs or less in your 1st playthrough .....they also said it gets boring really quick....
Damn another 4 hour game? That's what they are claiming for the MOH campaign..
Vanquish is overhyped. Never liked the demo and will never get the game.
wow, thats really good. 37/40
Wow just look at Ninja storm 2, Hmm, need to find a way to get this game but probably won't be on release date :/
translation is more 8-9 scores, wasn't really interested in vanquish at first and even after the demo but now after seeing more vids and gameplay the VO is the only off putting part.
Does that VO mean "voice overs"? If that's the case, the demo had multi-language options including the orginal Japanese voices. Sorry if that's not the case.
yea as usual the voice overs are crappy as hell, will the full game come with multilanguage because I would rather play it in Japanese with subtitles.
Yeah the demo is multilanguage, but I can't get it to show subtitles when in Japanese audio. They only show when the audio is English. Hopefully the final game addresses that
true, how hard is it to put a toggle subtitle language option.
The demo for vanquish was pretty badass I def liked it and will probably get it sooner or later
Famitsus reviews are as credible as Hiphopgamers headlines.
Amen to that.
I love you Delbert Grady
maybe so.. but i kinda like how they split the score in four... i could be a 4/9/10/5 or something like that really showing the game's strength and weaknesses wish more sites would review like this and not with a single score..
LOL Haze anyone?
When you kill a squad will you hear "forever"? =D
Famitsu review? Just say no.
The demo for Vanquish was pretty awesome, will be picking the game up based on that.
Looks good, it's unfortunate for me this games downfall will be it's timing. With all the other games coming out within the next few weeks I'll have to pass on Vanquish until another time. :(
Famitsu overrate lots of games.
So do Edge, GR, GS, GI, Gspy, EGM,OPM, OXBox, 1Up and every other western mag/site, though, don't they? I just think this reflects the differences between Japanese and Western gamers (or readers of game sites in both hemispheres really)myself-the cultures are very different so you'd expect tastes to vary as welol, among writer and reader alike, no? Sure the QT scores still seem high but I can see how out there in a nation where Gears isn't the massive force it is in the west that the game might not have kept getting unfavourably compared to Epic's monster franchise. QT wasn't Damnation , imho, cos the basics DID work. The cover was OK and the shooting was OK and even the story, which was way too OTT and melodramatic for Western tastes I can see appealing more to Japanese gamers used to some more, erm, mental jrpg stories over the years! I'm not saying I'd give QT the scores Fam did but I CAN understand why they scored it higher than it managed out in the West-and also TK are a Japanese dev so their own countrymen would never be as hard on them as the western sites were-Edge, for example, are often a lot more soft on games made in the UK, are they not? Factor all that together and even if it's stioll a bit high I DO think it's more understandable than it first appears that QT got a decent Fam score. Just because we have a very different culture to those reading and writing Famitsu doesn't mean they're any less professional than our sites, does it? No, they just cater for a different gaming world to the one we live in so to completely understand them would prolly be more worrying, no? Vive la difference!
I just agreed with you because I like Mastiffs. Your comment wasn't to shabby either.
I'll just pick up Fallout: new Vegas
