This year, Japanese magazine Famitsu has awarded perfect 40/40 to three games: Dragon Quest IX, Bayonetta and New Super Mario Bros got perfect scores. Years-in-the-making and eagerly-anticipated Final Fantasy XIII did not.

Famitsu has four reviewers rate games on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best for a cumulative 40/40 score. Famitsu praised the game's cut scenes as well as the battle system and the high level of strategy it offers. Interestingly, one Famitsu reviewer noted how up until the mid-way point of the game, the story seemed be linear and that it didn't offer any new "gimmicks" in its story telling.


and here is what they say from the review

QUOTE said:
Reviewer 1 - 10/10
Beautiful graphics and superb story. These aspects can be enjoyed without feeling as though they're being forced upon you. Combined with this, the extreme sense of satisfaction from the gameplay, is a direct result of a system that's evolved and reached perfection.
With no vice to really speak of, at this time, this game stands at the RPG forefront of a superb combination of story and gameplay who's value can undoubtedly be experienced by all.

Reviewer 2 - 9/10
There's a few niggling issues like battle damage being difficult to see, and the screen being cluttered, but the amount of enjoyment this game offers more than makes up for it. You'll be drawn into the world with visual, aural, and story aspects. I have a bit of resistance calling this an "RPG-like RPG" however.


Reviewer 3 - 10/10
Extravagant and dense (referring to the amount of content?). A lot of points to keep your eyes open for and is very movie-like. Very beautiful movies are included in a story full of events, to the point where it's difficult to determine where to put the controller down at the beginning. With the amount of character growth, gathering and crafting available in the game, there's enough enjoyable content for you to last for a while with just this one game.

Reviewer 4 - 10/10
Including the beauty of the visual side of things, the total quality is very high. The script is strictly dandy and irritating (whatever the hell that means). Character typecasting is unavoidable and while there should be "your own (character's own?) story", this does not exist. However, the sense of satisfaction gained from playing the game is extremely good, and is something I've never experienced before.




well what do you think guys does it's deserve 40/40?

actually the game it's deserve 40/40 for me

I think it should have been a 40/40, especially because the dude mostly gave it 9 because he could not see the battle damage, which may indicate it is designed more for an hdtv than older tvs, like I have still. Either way I will buy this day one and until then I am off to play 8,9,and 10 again.

...Have you played it yet? Or are you just saying it deserves a 40/40 because you're a mindless fanboy drone?

Famitsu will always get cock sucked by Square Enix. I mean, people were up in arms when Crystal Bearers got a 30/40, which is a 75% (which is a lot better than what other games get). I mean, look at what their readers voted as "the best games of all time".

1. Final Fantasy X (2001)
2. Final Fantasy VII (1997)
3. Dragon Quest III (1988)
4. Dragon Quest VIII (2004)
5. Machi (1998)
6. Final Fantasy IV (1991)
7. Tactics Ogre (1995)
8. Final Fantasy III (1990)
9. Dragon Quest VII (2000)
10. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998)

Count the number of Square, Enix, or Square Enix titles!

Also, funny note, FFXIII gotten has a lower score than Nintendogs. I guess Famitsu's gift basket wasn't quite as satisfying as Nintendo's, eh?

Dude, seriously, stop reading my mind. There's way too much head porn in there.

I don't think any game should deserve a perfect score. A game getting a 10/10 is like saying "There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with this game at all. There is not one time when I got a little too frustrated or when I stopped smiling."

Seriously giving a perfect score should only be awarded once a game is owned by every gamer out there...that or every gamer out there that can afford it.

^This.

PS: This game does not interest me in the slightest. Final Fantasy has been such shit in 3D.

LOL you fail. You call FFVII and FFX shit?

The shittiest games were the ones on the Nintendo systems (besides the remakes), FFX-2, and FFXII.
FFVI looked good, it was good. FFX looked good, it was good. FFXII looked like shit, guess what?

This game looks good whether you're an Enix/FF fan or not.

Yup, totally right. Every Final Fantasy game before 7 was complete shit. Seriously, have you EVER played Final Fantasy? If it wasn't for Nintendo, there wouldn't be a Final Fantasy. So I'd keep my jabber shut and thank my lucky stars for Nintendo if I were you. Oh, for those of you who DIDN'T catch on, that was sarcasm in the first two sentences.

The game looks pretty, but it doesn't look good.

FFXII looked like shit, so I'm assuming it was shit? Well, it did get a 40/40 from Famitsu.

FFXII was on the PS2, dumb dumb. Do you actually at least take 5 seconds to look up stuff Wikipedia or do you just let your ass do the talking? I mean, I talk out of my ass at least 70% of the time. But, at least I make it actually either sound like I know what I'm doing or make it so unclear that you can't tell if I was right or wrong.

Wait...FFXII got a perfect score and FFXIII didn't!?

OMFG! Biased bastards!

And by any chance, are you one of those people who thought Advent Children was a good movie?

Why the hell are you just blabbing out nonsense? Where did I ever say FFXII was NOT on the PS2? And don't bring the bullshitting Famitsu ratings into this.
I was referring to your 3D FF comment.

You really can't say all the 3D FF games sucked, some of them do suck, I agree, but your argument is FAR from true.
Most true FF fans will think that FFIX, FFX-2, and FFXII are the worst out of the series. XII strays waaayyy to far from the traditional FF feel. Automated battles? Wtf?
If you're someone who thinks FFVII or FFX sucks, although you're entitled to your opinion, you do not know what you're talking about.

AND FINALLY: I don't doubt Nintendo, but I was referring to the Crystal Chronicles crap. Not Nintendo as a whole.

@asdf: It was a very mediocre movie. You can't doubt that FFVII (the PS1 game) has a good storyline, but is definitely not my favorite. Then SE milked VII wayyyy to much.

/e-rage ;D

A) It wasn't my comment. I was defending it.

Last time I checked, the PS2 wasn't a Nintendo system.

C) QUOTE

I usually try to make my phrase completely different from what I said when my past phrases are vague and can be interpreted in anyway. You could have said "The Crystal Chronicles series is crap on Nintendo consoles". I'm assuming you completely forgot that almost half the FF titles were made on Nintendo systems and when I pointed that out, you went "oh shit" and tried to re-interpret your previous sayings.

Okay, let me rephrase one again!

The games that were on the Gamecube and any systems after that.
I haven't played any of the super ancient FF games, so the ones on NES and SNES slipped my mind.

"The shittiest games were the ones on the Nintendo systems (besides the remakes), FFX-2, and FFXII."
I'm sorry if my use of commas was wrong.

Let me rephrase that too:
"The shittiest games were the ones on the Nintendo systems (besides the remakes) AND FFX-2 AND FFXII.

Easier to read?
