    It's alright I can't "Old" anyone if they post the same list; nobody will search for Blue Drago. :)

    Oh dear... MS didn't pay them enough! (That's not a dig at MS or blue-dragon, that's a dig at Famitsu).

    Still, great score.

    I think you're all missing the clear winner by dint of name alone: Fairy Musketeers.

    I actually used to joke that after "Super" and "Zero" and whatever the fuck else they were adding for sequels, the Japanese would start using "Next" and "More".

    Very promising score for Blue Dragon though!

    Indeed! but when are we getting our hands on Blue Dragon?! and are we getting a special kit like the japanese did? if so... then I might get me a xbox360

    Probably not - they only seem to make the effort in territories that aren't interested in buying their console, same with the Xbox. OK, that's a little unfair, we got the Crystal Xbox, but the Japanese get a lot of interesting bits and bobs, as well as loads of SE consoles.

    Don't worry, Sid's semi joking. The word in title is 'Plus' not 'More'.

    As for the review scores, it was as predictable and eerily symmetric as you can get - Ryu ga Gotoku came out pretty much exactly a year ago give or take a week, and scored one point more than another massive RPG, Rogue Galaxy. Now the sequel comes along with a score two points higher, but the same result up against this year's highest profile year-end RPG.

    Don't worry, you didn't miss much.

    Yes he did, about 90 days of loading and 4 hours of mediocre fighting!

    After the score they gave Gundam Crossfire, I've lost any faith in their credibility.

    Heh, it's funny you say that as I was going to do one for Gundam but then I thought 'maybe I should save my first one for Blue Dragon'. :)

    Yakuza is a strange one, the loading is abit annoying, and at first the fighting isn't great, but when you've got a selection of special moves and some combo's built up, its actully amazingly fun to play, im just gutted my disk is scratched :(

    Also, blue dragon is the game im most looking for on the 360, cant wait....

    With famitsu scores, that's always a bit of a mystery. Depends on how much money they get I suppose.
