You made a good choice. If you liked Star Ocean 3, this is like Star ocean 3.5

Im enjoying SO5 more than I thought I was going too.

Star Ocean 3 is actually my favourite Star Ocean.

That's kinda the impression I am getting.  Which, to be fair, is the kind of thing critics should criticize.  But it does create a situation where something is critically unimpressive but still enjoyable for fans.

Interesting - might like it when I get it in the future in that case since SO3 is also my most favorite in the series. (Also was my first one in the series).

Does not look good... period. I guess I'll be waiting for the Bargain Bin Edition of this one. At least I'll be saving a few bucks.



Updated Thread title to reflect the current meta rating which is 62.

The hell is with you and your stance against Western devs, Western pubs, Western reviews, hell Western anything?. You have a real case of Xenophobia going on here.

It's called being a weeaboo. It's quite an epidemic on the internet nowadays and you'll see it in any corner of the internet that involves something that looks like, sounds like, or is referred to as having anything to do with anime or Japanese pop culture. Reality and objectivity are thrown out the window in praise of almighty Nippon and every other part of the world just sucks and is trying to oppress them and bring them down whenever something critical is said about anything related to Japan.

Would you call me by similiar term if i only would play games made in the USA? Which is quite likeley for average gamers in todays gaming industry.  

Something like 80% of all games not made in Japan are made in US (a single country/meta culture). Do you go around calling the other people weird for focusing on one country too even if it is subconsciously

its a good game by todays standard

Which game do you mean? SO5 is likely still a good game, even if it doesn't score high. FF13 however I don't agree with. I don't think it's a good game in any standard...

 

Even if true it doesnt change the fact that metacritic should represent different opinions and outlets. That an important site like Famitsu isnt represented to give their score is pretty ignorant and down right discrimantory too.

Not trusting these reviews one bit, its all western reviewers for a Japanese game.

And why is Gamespot so fast with their review this time? Seems they want to smear the games very earlier so the sheep reviewers follow.

The game is as it is scored and reviewed, that's what it's been like for practically all other games since the beginning. I've played and liked games in the apst that got shit scores and that didn't stop me from playing them. Last gen I gave Bullet Witch a whirl and thought it was a decent game and had a good time with it and just look at the reviews and scores that game got. 

How is it xenophobia if i point out that most reviewers are from western countries while japanese reviewers are absent like Famitsu? 

There were quite a lot of people in this thread who openly said they are going to cancel their pre-order or prospone the purchase. So its clearly a lot of people do listen to these reviewers, western reviewers.

Do you mean Metacritic accepting famitsu's scores too? How would that work? Isn't it based on a 40 point system? I guess they could take the 4 individual's scores and add them all. I guess what's stopping that is Famitsu's a Japanese magazine publisher, and.. they don't know Japanese either. Plus, translating that for English for Metacritic may be a bit troublesome for them.

 

Either way, it doesn't matter to me. I don't use metacritic reviews to base my decisions on buying a game, haha.
