    ok, so i am looking for a good site that hosts reviews of Japanese releases...i have tried metacritic, but they dont have any (J) games listed that i tried to find reviews for. i have also tried to find some decent reviews over at gamfaqs, but i am kind of over the fanboys posting rants and passing them off as reviews that seems to be the case for most niche games over that way..also, i have tried to find sites though google, but none of the sites i found were in english..

    Have you checked any Japanese sites? Of course 2ch will give you largely the same problems you have with gamefaqs.

    like i said, i have been able to find sites i cant read as they are not in english, or i can find fanboy rants. i am looking for professional reviews, or at the very least, sensible, objective reviews. google has not been alot of help..

    Famitsu is your best bet as it is one of the best game review sites for most games.

    Dengeki is very good for Dating sims, Bushoujo games, and gender specific games, they also have a long list of sections for video games even one catered to the DS and Wii.

    V-Jump is a good alternative to Famitsu for anime related games that Dengeki doesn't cover.

    These are the main ones but there are other sites.

    I don't think there are any Japanese review sites with full English.

    thats what this site is for, the reviews -.-. anyways, if you want to read those sites, just use google's site translator for a start. lol

    you're welcome. by GBAtemp, i meant you can ask here how games are and most people will give legit answers(notice i said most xD). there was a weekly game review thing done by hadrian i think? but i guess he stopped :3
