    They are in order that they appear in the Magazine.
    Will post full reviews on request, but might not be immediate.
    I will try to continue to do this every month.

    Maybe they got bored of the FF series. Square Enix tries to make as much money as possible on their FF license no matter the quality of their games. :/

    its either weird or a trend that the GBA one also got the same score from NP too and the other reviewers as well

    Has Nintendo Power rated Summon Nights yet? Oh and I'm not to surprised at the score they gave Final Fantasy Tactics A2. Its a great game, but it doesn't have the depth and feel to it as the of the other final fantasy games.

    They gave it 7.5.

    I really don't see how people are complaining that certain games have got 7's, that's not a bad score at all and anyway its the opinion of one person.

    Thought Soul Bubbles would get higher as that is getting amazing reviews right now (before NP the lowest was 8) but still 6.5 ain't bad and again only the view of one person.

    Yeah, the first bit I played of FFTA2 felt a lot like the first one, so that's probably why there is a low score.
    And though it was in Japanese, I got the feeling the story was nowhere near as good as the first one. The core of the game is the same as the original though, so I'm still gonna play it to the finish. And I'm surprised Etrian Odyssey II did so well. I need to go play Etrian Odyssey really quickly now though lol.
    And thanks very much for posting the scores.

    Starforce 2, 7.0?
    Let me guess, "The game is good but it adds nothing new to the previous installment, so we knocked down the score"

    That's what EVERYONE says, and then I go play the newest battle network and I'm in love with it. (Except for, Battle Network 4...)

    Why's that?


    Anyway,back on topic.
    Not anything id want to play out of them,really.
    Well,there's a couple of games,nothing big though.

    EDIT: Soul Bubbles = 6.5..WHAT?
    The UK nintendo magazine gave it something like 93%,saying it was the next best game.

    A lot of people have been talking about it so here you go.
    I'll also do the FF one if someone wants me to.

    Yeah, I'd be interested in the FF one, please! Thanks much!

    And that's certainly strange, the way they describe the game suggests they'd give it at least a 7. In my eyes, the review didn't cover enough flaws or bad points of this seemingly good game, so how it could justify a score of 6.5 I have no idea. When is Soul Bubbles out by the way?
