I'd like to point out something ironic that we'll see here.

We're gonna have every PS3 fan on this forum comment on this thread.

They'll say things like "another square-enix screw-up" or "square sucks" or "MS bought another flop."

However, the irony is that if OXM had given this game a 10/10, these same people would say "It's OXM, of course they gave it a 10/10," and "Let's wait for some real review sites, this one source isn't credible," or, "OXM, enough said."

The irony doesn't lie in their hypocrisy. It's expected. What's ironic is how kids today couldn't hate corrupt government, intolerance, special interests, and bias more than they do now, yet any one of these folks would be far more bias and corrupt given the same responsibilities as any government official in any government.

I can tell you the people on this website, that you could trust IRL with any kind of social responsibility, and those that you couldn't. Fanboyism has nothing to do with what console you like. It's about the type of person that you are.

Official Xbox Magazine is just that. An Official Xbox Magazine.

When an exclusive gets a 10/10, it can mean two things:

1) The game is amazing

2) The game needs to sell well

When an exclusive gets a 7/10, it can mean one thing:

1) The game is not that great

2) The game needs to sell badly

Why would they want that? So a 10/10 is less reliable than a 7/10. There are more overrated games than underrated games.

And by the way, you're overreacting. People on an internet forum complaining about OXM is not going to create another Hitler. I swear.

Hmmm, let me see here.

Game receives a 7/10. Ok.
Game created by the SaGa Team. Great.

Game created by the SaGa Team receiving a 7/10. AMAZING!!!


This game is going to be awesome, SaGa team is the best.

Got a retro room? Post it here!

Wow.

MS bought another brick. >_>

I was never excited about this game anyway. And this review paves the way for future reviews of the same caliber. I will not be purchasing this when it releases on the Triple, as it does not tickle my fancy at all.



I might be getting the game.

I wanna see how UE3 looks in the hands of these great artists, especially concerning realtime cutscenes. If anyone can make them stuttering and pop ups free, these guys can.

Anyone knows if this game comes on multiple dics, or is it just one ?

"You have the right to the remains of a silent attorney"

Are you guys forgetting that Tales of Vesperia only has an 82 on Metacritic, yet it is by far and away the best JRPG this generation?

JRPGs fit a niche genre that Western reviewers don't seem to want to like anymore, unlike the game's name is "Final Fantasy". Remember that issue of EGM a while back where they literally spent the entire magazine bashing Japanese game dev?

I'll take this over another generic FPS any day.

      Euphoria, I didn't know you liked SaGa...

      On topic: The ignorance about the game industry in this thread makes me sad... :(

      Last Remnant scoring over 6 from American journalists makes me happy. :)

      Remembering Enchanted Arms scoring over 6 makes me sad :(



      I would cite regulation, but I know you will simply ignore it.

      SE do not make AAA titles games anymore. I do not have high expectations of FF XIII either.

       Yeah, what would even give anyone that idea right?

      Screw up? lol. And how many Japanese role-playing games got over 90, on metacritic? Not so many. Compare to FPS, that already this gen got some 90s-games.

      FF is the big shit in west. Thats all. True but sad.


      No, TLR will be just fine. Not so much hype, just deliver me some nice winter role-playing. On the console that have them all =)



      And a living proof for that is Lost Odyssey. The best, and most epic, J-RPG this gen got 78 on MC or 79 GR.

      Haha. Its greaat!
