    Hmm... Judgement got a 7, which I guess isn't HORRIBLY bad... Sonic got an 8?! Then again, NO loves them some Sonic, so it could just be biased. I'm very surprised Chrono Trigger only got a 9.0...Moon only 7.5... and LA2 only a 7 :\ Not what I expected at all. I was hoping for this:

    Judgement - 8/10
    Sonic - fail/10
    CT - 9.5/10
    Moon - at least 8/10
    LA2 - At least 8/10

    Edit: Nevermind, I thought you actually owned the magazine and could scan reviews from it.

    If I get the magazine this week, I'll scan them for you War.

    I think the scores look fair.
    Mushroom Men seems to be getting mixed reviews.

    That would be awesome! I'd really appreciate CT, LA2, and Moon if it's not too much to ask. How are they reviewing Moon, though? I thought it got pushed back till Q1 09?

    ONLY 9? Are you kidding me? For a 12 year old game, that is great.

    Not for NP. 9 is a great score, but I really would have expected NP to give it a 9.5/10 or even 10/10.

    I think the title should be Nintendo Power January Scores.
    I have the December issue, and those aren't the reviews in the magazine


    If anyone cares, I scanned the Chrono Trigger review from the EGM magazine (Here)

    Is 4.0 the lowest score they actually give out?

    I think they gave out a 3 or a 2 once, and I think it was to a Fantastic 4 DS game.

    Yep. Except if Sega makes another Sonic Rush. Although, speaking of the handheld games, the Wii Sonic Unleashed was handled by Dimps (the makers of the Advance and Rush series). So there is a possibility that it's good. But I didn't like Sonic Chronicles and it got an 8, so we'll see. I don't have a Wii anyways.

    Sorry for messing up the date. Magazine dates, in the wise words of Spock, are illogical.

    The thing is I been a Sonic fan for a while now but I got to realize the original Sonic Team disappeared so what I'm dealing with is a new Sonic Team. I don't know if I can do that game any justice, Sonic 06 wasn't wonderful and there's another Hedgehog going to be added soon enough- I'll digress. I want to see what's the hype about Chrono Trigger, I played Super Mario RPG which was good and still is. I just want to know what Chrono Trigger got that I hadn't seen yet?

    If you been playing RPGs lately, it probably has nothing [​IMG]

    But in 1995 it had a lot of stuff no one had ever saw! Well, till today I still think it has the best characters around. Can't remember another RPG were I had difficult deciding which characters to use cause I wanted all.

    It is already finished.

    A lot of reviewers gave Dementium 4/10 and I liked that game despite its flaws. All it is is just one persons opinion.

    Still 7.5 means that its a good game.
