Famitsu scores are out, Super Mario Galaxy OFFICIALLY reviewed

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Famitsu scores are out, Super Mario Galaxy OFFICIALLY reviewed

The last high score they gave out, to my recollection, was a 10 10 10 9 for Phantom Hourglass.

Yeah, neither am I, they gave CC: FFVII a 35/40 I think. That seems too low for me



I really really don't understand why people give Famitsu any credit as a review source. Don't get me wrong, that's a great average (9.5), and I expect Mario Galaxy deserves a score that high, but seriously Famitsu reviews every big game that high. Someone show me a hyped game that ever got lower than an 8 average from a Famitsu review. Even garbage like Lair gets good reviews from them based on hype and company. They are the Play Magazine of Japan.

Lower than I thought for being from Famitsu.

Not really a huge fan of famitsu scores to be honest

95/100 is pretty high though =/.


 Yeah I know. My problem with Famitsu is that they rank all games high and excellent games at about the right amount. There isnt enough variation in the scores, I think its because they have four reviewers.

Not on a scale of 95-100 that an AAAA class game is based on. It's pretty much scraping the bottom of the "Completely Genius, Wonderfull and ground breaking"  category.

Well, I don't follow Famitsu closely. I just followed the hype, I guess.

 

I'll serve myself crow for saying that they don't throw high scores around.
