Famitsu Review Of FFXIII Leaked

Normally, we don't care much about one leaked set of review scores from a Japanese gaming publication but when we're talking about Final Fantasy XIII...well, we suddenly become very interested.

It seems the Famitsu review of FFXIII has been leaked; this source includes a scan of the magazine page in question, so we know it's legit (at least, we'll just assume it is). As you can see, FFXIII netted an almost perfect 39/40, which isn't exactly surprising but it's interesting to note that Bayonetta managed to snag a 40/40, which is bound to make many scoff in evident derision. The one reviewer that gave FFXIII a 9/10 complained of a "cluttered screen" where it's sometimes difficult to see how much damage is being dealt, but other than that, everything is glowing. Here's what Reviewer 1 had to say in his summary:

"Beautiful graphics and superb story. These aspects can be enjoyed without feeling as though they're being forced upon you. Combined with this, the extreme sense of satisfaction from the gameplay, is a direct result of a system that's evolved and reached perfection. With no vice to really speak of, at this time, this game stands at the RPG forefront of a superb combination of story and gameplay who's value can undoubtedly be experienced by all."

The third reviewer called it "extravagant and dense," with further allusion to the immense amount of content available in the game, saying the "character growth, gathering and crafting" is obviously quite absorbing. There's little doubt that FFXIII is a Day 1 purchase for most RPG fans, almost regardless of reviews, but such critical acclaim is always encouraging. Remember, this masterpiece launches in Japan on December 17 and in North America on March 9.

I am with you Kevin on the not having played a FF game before (12 previous issues I believe), I just missed the previous ones somehow lol. :)

FWIW, Famitsu grades on a pure ten-point scale, with no half-marks or tenths, so it's not that unusual for them to give "perfect" tens. Ben and Arnold (and most other reviewers) grade on a hundred-point scale (presented as a ten-point scale), so a "perfect" 10 is actually 100/100 and therefore more rare.

But neither score means a game is flawless, just top-notch.

p.s. I was half-expecting FFXIII to get bad reviews, what with S-E's recent run of duds on the 360. I'm glad to see it might actually be good.

!?!?!?!? this gives me mixed feelings I didn't like too much Bayo demo hell DM IV looks even better and has a more balanced gameplay IMO,and now FFXIII its unable to get the same score??? I hope the Bayo game wasn't a unbiased review or this FFXIII really got affected because of the 360 version like all of us feared.

Funny, that guy may be right. Some of the gameplay videos out there do seem to show cluttered screens during a couple of the battles. Regardless, that's a great score from a magazine that is known for being crazy. Take it as you will, it'll be the best RPG of 2010.

39/40 or even 35/40 makes no difference. If a game can get 40/40, means a game got perfect score, it has the potential to do even 65/40, if it weren't restricted by the 40 high end limit.

How on earth could you possibly know the game deserves a "perfect" score? The handful of carefully orchestrated videos released by S-E?

Holy crap! I get having faith in certain developers, but this kind of blind faith....

Reserve your opinion of whether a review is accurate UNTIL YOU'VE PLAYED THE GAME.

I don't mean to blast godsman specifically for what is a generally reasonable comment, but I can't condone irrationality.

I doubt it'll be uncompressed. They said somewhere that PS3 will only be single sided disc, 25 Gb. Xbox version uses 3 DVDs, 8 Gb each. It all depends on how much extra piracy coded is required in each DVD. Otherwise, i doubt blu-ray is an advantage.

It means four reviewers (probably not even the same four for both games) thought Bayonetta was deserving of the top grade, while only three of four thought FFXIII deserved the top grade.

In other words, both games got excellent reviews.

Bayonneta got 40/40 but what about the western score?
FFXIII will score higher than Bayonneta overall so stop complaining about this 39/40.

Famitsu is dumb anyway, gave 4 Wii games 40/40 means that they're not reliable.
I was surprised that only one PS2 game got a 40/40.

Actually, Arnold (I think) said he doesn't mind/edit profanity, so long as it isn't directed at someone. I think Ben may be a bit more restrictive (plus he's not real fond of you, LV).

Watch edge give this like a 4/10 or something. They gave FFX a 6? They are out of their mind.

Holy, Edge gave FFX 6, I think they review FFX after they played RPG from 2006 onwards.

I hope Bayonetta gets better scores overall than "this" game; not that it matters too much to me since I will be getting it no matter what.

I was just reading what I wrote and it came out as if FFXIII was the one that I would be getting no matter what.That's just Silly; that's what I get for staying up so late or early.

To be honest, I'm more surprised looking at the other final fantasy scores, FFIX totally deserves a 40/40 =| GTFO Famitsu, LOL

So wait... Why are we caring about Famitsu scores now? Their reputation as a trust worthy gaming publication went into the crapper years ago.

Should it be a 40/40? perhaps... 25/40? maybe...

They only thing we know is that Famitsu is not even something that should even be trusted by publishers and developers.

Hey Ben,

It seems like more and more reviewers are handing out perfect scores. Do you think their impressions are a bit clouded when they first play the game or are the games actually getting better?

Also, not all scoring systems are equal. Famitsu, for instance, only has ten options, so it's not unusual for them to pick the top score. The same goes for sites which mark on a five-point scale. Most reviewers have 100 options, so "perfect" scores would be more rare.

But a game doesn't need to be flawless to deserve top marks.

Something tells me that final fantasy versus XIII will score lower than final fantasy XIII.

Maybe I'm just doubting.
