Latest Famitsu Scores: Virtua Fighter 5, Luminous Arc and more

The big winner this week was VF5; while not scoring as high as Virtua Fighter 4 before it, it still received a very good 35/40. Also surprising was the 30/40 given to the new handheld Medal of Honor for the PSP. Traditionally, western first-person shooters have not been well-received in Japan.

Virtua Fighter 5 (PS3, Sega): 9 / 9 / 9 / 8 - (35/40)

Cooking Mama: Minna to Issho ni Oryouri Taikai! (Wii, Taito): 6 / 8 / 8 / 7 - (29/40)

Fuzion Frenzy 2 (Xbox 360, Microsoft): 4 / 5 / 5 / 5 - (19/40)

Jet Impulse (NDS, Nintendo): 7 / 7 / 7 / 7 - (28/40)

favourite fighting series ever(alongside SFII,Fatal Fury,Samurai Showdown and KofF), so it's good to see the game is up to par with AM2's previous offerings :]

just hope the devs don't balls up teh 360 version, that would REALLY get me mad!

"Virtua Fighter 5 (PS3, Sega): 9 / 9 / 9 / 8 - (35/40)"

That loooks good. Even the ever soo biased Gamespot may have to give this game gold. Im sure IGN will. Im still pissed at Gamespot after a 9.0 to final fantasy 12 and 8.5 to Resistance both incredible bogus reviews. Then to turn around and give saints row on 360 a 8.7 lol are they kiddin. Well that fanboy has long since left gamespot so hopefully we will start seeing a lot less unbiased reviews.

so by your definition of 'unbiased', you mean scoring the PS3 games higher than the 360 games. Wow, then you actually call someone else a fanboy. That's some funny stuff.

R34GTR, youre exactly right

THE TRUTH5721d ago

I agree, that is just plain ignorant, FF12 is one of the best RPGs of all time and if you haven't played RFOM both single play and online than you are doing yourself a disservice as a gamer.

I owned Saint's Row and that game is full of bugs and really can't hold a stick to any game in the GTA series.

back to the article

VF5 will be incredible, it's sad it won't be released for the 360 in japan because it would have helped 360 sales. I wish VF5 had an online mode. I will be buying the PS3 version myself because the PS3 controller is more confortable (in my opinion).

i more into soulcalibur at this point. can't wait for a next-gen version. i still think they should collaborate on a huge scale fighter with characters from all of the series. tekken, virtua fighter, street fighter, king of fighters, doa, mortal kombat, killer instinct, ect. never happen, but 1 can dream.
