The latest Famitsu review scores have been released, which includes the first review of Valkyria Chronicles 2.
Valkyria Chronicles 2 is obviously the only good title reviewed this week. For those wondering, Famitsu gave the first game a 34 out of 40.
34 for the first one and now 35 for the 2nd, we can expect a better or as good game, awesome.
I love how NINTENDOEverything.com is hyping up...Valkyria Chronicles for Sony PSP XD
The first game is the best tactical jrpg ever made this generation so far. Kinda interesting how in the west it outscored 99% of the jrpg except for persona 4.
@ knifefight - I've said this before, but even though I run a Nintendo website, I'm a gaming fan as well! And it is true that it is the best-reviewed game this week.
VC2 looks good. Any word on when us english speaking people get blessed with its presence? edit: @ below July huh? That's not too long. Thanks. bubbles+
when I first looked at the page, I didn't check the names, just noticed the one in bold and the low scores it got, and considering the headline, I thought for a second it was the scores for VC2... Then I noticed it was from nintendoeverything and they put in bold games on Nintendo's platform, looked for VC2, noticed the scores, felt much better. Can't wait for it to get to NA! July 2010 I believe.
What some people don't seem to get is that you can be a fan of something without ruthlessly trashing everything else. It ain't hard.
@Valay No need for animosity, man. I just made an observation I found humorous. I did NOT bash your website, and I did NOT say that people can't be fans of all games (word put inot my mouth by Tony P). Don't read too deeply into stuff and don't be so quick to get defensive, man. Just relax dude ;)
@ knifefight - Sorry if you got the wrong idea, but I didn't intend for there to be any animosity in my reply at all (that's why I used the exclamation mark!). And yeah, I see where you're coming from, no worries.
I love VC, but I can see why it wouldn't appeal to a lot of people. Certainly getting the PSP one. good score would like to see what was said about it.
Sweet! I've been looking for some inaccurate reviews!
famistsu died after review of haze 34/40 lol
Yeah but at least VC2 deserves that score (if not more).
why the fu(k sega doesnt release this on PS3
now i have 2 games to buy a psp for :D
Having them actual translate the reviews would be better. That way we can form some sort of early opinion actual based on something rather then a few nice screen shots and a few numbers. I WANT SUBSISTENCE!!
Damn my PSP won´t read UMD´s anymore, gotta buy a new one. Valkyria Chronicles 3 back on PS3 I love this franchise. Sega make it so.
Hopefully this sells well enough for them to consider another PS3 VC game next time around. The first was a real breath of fresh air for me, a proper change from the norm and a great RGP?RTS hybrid that nither dunbed anything down mnor lost any of the character you associate with jrpgs. Comme the EU release I'll be sticking this in the PSP! Shame that they felt the PS3 sales doidn't merit another home imnstallment and seeing as it slipped out here in the UK without any marketing at all(I didn't even see ONE advert for the game until it had been out for nearly a year and even then it was just because of a promotion in Game!), wasn't widely stocked(had to wait for a copy to be sent aftr trying without any luck on release day)AND had the uual, terribly misleading and sub standard demo treatment from Sega. IDK what they're thinking sometimes with VC as, like all the Yakuza games too, it feels a little like Sega don't really want th hassle of releasing the series over here in the west! And who else thinks it had the wors demo for a great game ever put on the PSN? I know a few people who were put off thinking that the demo showed all you did in the game when all it was was a more than basic combat lesson both with basic and advanced guns/weapons and nothing else that hinted at what the game's really about.
I would love a PS3 port of VC2 like was done with Twisted Metal Head-on and the GTA games. I don't need it upgraded or anything else and it could be a PSN download, I just want to be able to play my favorite new franchise without buying a PSP.
