Picked off a German site, obviously (gamefront)

Somewhat disappointed in Arc the Lad, but I still have hopes. 70 for PN.O3 not so hot. With all the hype around Soul Calibur 2.... Don't understand why Famitsu didn't review those games. Not to bad for the FFX sequel. I sooooooooo want Super Robot Wars!

I didn't realize that Famitsu had 2 mags

It's out in Japan at the end of the month, which means it's done, but in manufacturing.

That said, I don't trust one review score where action games are concerned. We'll give it a few more first, and see how it fares with American audiences too. IGN's impressions of the Japanese version are something I'll be looking forward to for sure.

Famitsu has one huge main mag, and then smaller magazines for every platform. There's Famitsu Advance, Famitsu Cube, Famitsu Xbox, and Famitsu PS2 and they're all weekly.

Damn. There must be a ton of gaming news in Japan to support all those weekly mags

I haven't been impressed with PNO3 anyway, so I'm not shocked. Still, like you said, just one review.

I don't think any of them are particularly huge, but still, it's something else.

Hehe. Too bad none of those mags reviewed Konami's "Aerobics" game. I'd liked to have seen what it got

Are those Famitsu scores? They're notoriously harsh on games.

EDIT: Ah, I see, one section is. :/

I'm surprised out good the American games got in terms of review score, for example, the PS2 of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon.

The full sized Famitsu mag may have reviewed VF4e last week.
