    Interesting that they scored it lower then The Last Remnant (38) considering that pretty much everybody else didnt like it.

    It’s backwards land. It also scored higher than Lost Odyssey and Eternal Sonata which are far better (IMHO) than TLR and ToV.

    These are Famitsu X360 scores, not general multi-format Famitsu scores, remember. The proper Famitsu score might be different.

    When it comes to Square games, you may as well just not pay attention to Famitsu’s scores really…

    Blerk, true… but different can also mean lower. ;)

    34/40 isn’t nearly as good as I’d expect from a S-E RPG.

    It’s not a SE RPG, though. It’s only SE-published. :-)

    Yes, and the publisher sends Famitsu the “review money”. Try to keep up, Blerk. :P

    So obviously they send a little bit less for games which they didn’t actually develop internally, so as to keep them at the top of the Metacritic pile. :-D

    “Interesting that they scored it lower then The Last Remnant (38) considering that pretty much everybody else didnt like it.”

    OMG THEY HAD AN OPINION DIFFERENT FROM THE AVERAGE CONSUMER’S CONSENSUS! HERESY! HERESY! BURN THEM AT THE STAKE!

    “Yes, and the publisher sends Famitsu the “review money”. Try to keep up, Blerk. :P”

    Right, because that has any backing.

    34 out 40? That’s about 80% by each reviewer? Seems like a pretty respectable score to me.
