Reader's Average is 8.1

Rent it first and judge it yourself. This generation there has been no love for JRPG for some reason.

Because they've they've been ending up on the 360. People then starting calling the 360 the "RPG King" of this gen.....then all the games flop....

 

 That is because the games are just not that great.  And we have this gen two JRPG's you must have Tales of Versperia and Valkyria Chronicles.  Sometimes I even wonder if some people have played JRPG's before.

Well, to be honest except for Final Fantasy 4, I haven't played any other JRPG this generation, but I had the feeling most reviews were giving bad scores only because of the unchanged formula and prefered the western RPG. One friend told me he really liked Blue Dragon, and that one received low scores. But who knows, I haven't played them so maybe reviews are right. Anyway, don't let a review dissapoint you, play the game first and then decide.

The problem I have with that is that western reviews don't penalize other genres for having the same formula. Even my best friend remarked on this. He is more an FPS gamer than I am but he even mentioned that FPS games don't get penalized for the same old thing. Call of Duty Word at War is yet another WWII that is essentially Call of Duty 4 with setting change. A setting change to the most tired and worn out FPS setting of all time, I don't see anyone slapping 5 and 6 reviews scores on it.

It seem like IGN is trash when give a not so good game low score.
hope IGN can become smarter next time to give 10/10 to all 360 games.

 It is not just a setting change they really tried to put up things in a game we don't have seen yet before they didn't realy succeeded that wel but some things are nice like the flamethrower an MP experience that builds furter on the COD4 experience an extra mode where you can hunt zombies.  FPS that don't really add new things get 5-6's aswell.

There has been DLC that added more variety than that Konnichiwa. However that isn't my point. If a well made FPS game with the same setting and same old gamplay can get a great score. Why can't the same be true for a JRPG? If a WRPG with excellent gameplay and technical issues can get a great score, why can't a JRPG?

And to think fellow VG Chartz members, he WANTS you to take him seriously, lol. I'm sorry dude but NO!

Anyway OT: This game should've been developed longer, I agree with that. Here's hoping the PS3 version gets some kind of cleanup. From what I've seen though, I'd give it a 7-7.5 Max.



                                                                                                                                            

SE couldn't fuck it up that badly...? seriously, wow.



This reminds me of the Musashi sequel's terrible f***up.



GOTY Contestants this year: Dead Space 2, Dark Souls, Tales of Graces f. Everything else can suck it.
