Famitsu gives FFXIII-2 a perfect 40/40News
The 18th game in Famitsu history to land a perfect review score (on both the 360 and PS3 versions, no less) is Final Fantasy XIII-2. This may come as a shock to many people because of how FFXIII turned out for many but then again the cultural differences with video games between the US and Japan have changed greatly over the past few years. Either way I think Famitsu is trustworthy for many RPG Fans and they even mentioned that it is a big step up from the previous game so they did realize that many people did have an issue with it. With that being said I am still very excited to play this game once it hits the states.
“I have to take my hat off to the staff for being so open and thorough with responding to the feedback they got from FFXIII,” added reviewer Ranbu Yoshida. “It feels like a very different game from its predecessor; the story changes depending on where you choose to go in your time-traveling journey, and it’s easy to lose yourself in changing and redoing areas you’ve previously finished.”
