Forums - Gaming Discussion - Famitsu review scores (Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Mario Maker 2, Kill la Kill: IF, and more)

Being a big srpg fan I tried fire emblem on GameCube, I was extremely underwhelmed and give up on the franchise, but if this game gets great reviews in the west I will try it.
I wouldn’t trust Famitsu too much they gave one of the ff13 sequels a 40.

But why though? 

The bar for RPG's has raised a lot since Awakening. Persona 5 is one of the most polished and well designed JRPG's of recent years and it managed to score a 93. Three Houses looks small and clunky in comparison.

The two aren't really comparable genres. Fire Emblem is much more of a strategy game than a standard JRPG, having more in common with X-Com or Advanced Wars than something like Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest. Even if Persona 5 were some design marvel of the last generation (it really isn't, there are plenty of areas that could use a lot of tweaking/adjusting for P5R), it's unlikely that it would be taken into account for most reviews of Three Houses. Changes in a standard RPG are about as likely to affect reviews for FE as changes in FPS design would be to affect reviews for something like Deus Ex or Resident Evil.

I think FE will land between 79-85 on Metacritic.

Nahhhh you clearly haven't read the previews. Many are calling it the best fire emblem game to date. 

I see it landing between 87 and 93

Think for yourself, question authority
