  -  

Print truyền thông media might be suffering at the moment but that hasn"t stopped Japanese magazine Famitsu"s influence in the industry.

The veteran publication is still seen as something of an authority - both in its native homelvà and the West - so the news that it has awarded New Super Mario Bros. Wii a perfect score of 40/40 is obviously a big khuyễn mãi giảm giá.

Our very own Corbie is obviously in agreement as he awarded the game 10/10 when he reviewed it recently.

For those of you that don"t know, the magazine rates a game by getting four staffers to give it a score out of 10. Those scores are then added up to lớn give sầu the title an overall mark out of 40.

Only a select few titles have earned a perfect rating in Famitsu previously - including the likes of Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, Nintendogs & Smash Bros. Brawl.


Now you really have no excuse not to go out and buy it, if you haven"t done so already.

glad someone else agrees that this is a revolutionary Mario game well done Famitsu .

A 40/40 from the Famitsu used to lớn be a big deal, but during the last couple of years it has been awarded so often, it has lost just about any meaning or credibility to me.

I have sầu lost all faith in Famitsu now. This is a 7/10 game. I hope Bayonetta is actually good now that I hear this.

Too many games with perfect score in two years, before very little games had a 40, now it looks like Famitsu scores are for sale...Anyway, a great game, for me the correct score would be 9, great game, but not innovative enough...


Tue 24th Nov 2009

Famitsu is rather liberal with perfect scores.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I thought Famitsu"s reputation is fairly low these days, generally being seen as buyable.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

For the record, Famitsu awarded Galaxy with 38/40 và Mario 64 with 39/40. I"ll let you duke it out.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I think with New Super Mario Bros Wii you"d struggle to find reasonable flaws but with Galaxy its a little bit easier. For a start New SMB Wii didn"t have the equivalent of the "spring suit" & because its a 2D platformer it can be hard without worrying about being disorientating. Galaxy also had the almost tacked on attempt at a story line while New SMB Wii accepted that its Mario và doesn"t need it.

I personally think they both deserve sầu 10s & would find it almost impossible lớn pick my favourite. They might be Apples và Oranges but they are both awesome. I just find it funny that Famitsu give it 10, Nintenbởi vì Life gives it 10, I play it & can"t find flaws & yet.... its averaging 86 on metacritc placing it below games like Guitar Hero 5 (a good game, a great game but there is no comparison). Apparently some critics don"t like perfectly constructed nostalgic 2D

Could it be... games are getting better?


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I think this is an excellent game.I don"t really care about scores as they are subjective sầu, we will always disagree with each other about some aspect, but personally - this is the best game I"ve sầu played in a long time. The pressure on magazine Review is they are expected khổng lồ represent an objective sầu view - which can never match with everyone in their readership.Maybe its "cause I"m over 30 but I prefer this game to lớn Galaxy - I appreciate Galaxy"s artistry and innovation which are outstanding, but for me its less "fun" to play...

If anyone doubts the remarkable màn chơi thiết kế, watch some of the "Super Skills" videos, this is a 2 chiều platformer honed to perfection.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

Wind Waker, Brawl, New Super Mario Bros..& Nintendogs(!?)

whatever, I can"t wait til I get this game. It"s going khổng lồ be amazing


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I think its the third Wii game with a perfect score.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

Nintendogs got a perfect score!?Ah well, I trust Corbie more than Famitsu anyways, and they agreed with corbie"s score! I can"t wait till I get this game. It"s so popular, on the drive home from church, my parents started talking about how fun it looks, and they are not đoạn Clip game players-they are the ones that walk into lớn the room at random times & say that"s a one player game. Turn it off.

To get a 40 from Famitsu is a huge honor.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I think what some people need to lớn rethành viên is that this isn"t one person saying "this deserves a 40." This is four people who, though might discuss the game itself, don"t discuss the scores they"re going khổng lồ give it. It"s feasible for all four people lớn say "this deserves 10 out of 10" because, frankly, it does. I"m actually surprised more games don"t get 40s, though I"m sure there are some Craig Revel Horwood wannabes working for Famitsu who tend to lớn be a bit harsher than others.

And I"m sorry, but there"s no way in hell NSMB Wii is a 7/10.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

Famistu certainly gave the right scores for NSMBW, SSBB, & the Wind Waker. But, Nintendogs does NOT deserve that score!


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I just went out and bought the game so I"ll let you know soon enough what I think of it...


Hyper Luigi

Can you please explain why Nintendogs does not deserve 40/40 please?

Considering each individual category that is usually scored such as presentation, graphics, sound, gameplay, lastability, replayability etc, I personally can"t see a single good reason why the hell it shouldn"t get 40/40?

I mean as far as I"m concerned it still has some of the best graphics, animation and sound on the console, and it uses the features of the DS better than almost any other DS game I can think of. The controls are really good và really draw you inlớn the game, things lượt thích throwing a Frisbee with a flick of the stylus or dragging the dog on the leash and flicking khổng lồ make it run or rubbing it"s stomach with the stylus etc etc, or calling the dog & telling it lớn roll over & jump and sit down etc etc. There"s loads to lớn collect and discover. You can play the basic game almost endlessly if you want to lớn. It"s just a completely well rounded and highly polished game in every respect.

Seriously...what the hell more vì you expect from a DS game or any game for that matter?

The single issue I had with the game was that it took too long to get enough money lớn buy the later houses in the game, but I wouldn"t knochồng any particular scoring in any category for that because all it means is that I would have sầu khổng lồ put a lot of time into lớn earning those house but I personally couldn"t be bothered.

I really don"t get the hate for that game.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I wonder what the Kotaku comments board will have sầu to say about this? In their Frankenreview many readers thought Nlife was a soft touch


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I do have sầu an excuse. I have sầu no rupees (lớn buy games for MYSELF) right now. But I can settle for playing in a month.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I agree with everyone who notices that Famitsu is much softer on the ratings these days. Seems to lớn be a pretty comtháng trend. All I know is that even Nintenbởi Power gave it a 9. This game has its chia sẻ flaws if you can get over the nostalgia factor which is not easy for some. I think Galaxy 2 will make a stronger case for a top rating because it takes advantage of what the Wii is truly capable of.


Tue 24th Nov 2009


Kirk-Because I played that game, & it is a good game, but it is a pet simulator. The game does not deserve a 10, it is not THAT fun. NL gave Nintendogs a 7, and I agree with the score.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

Totally agree with Famitsu


Tue 24th Nov 2009

Truly deserves a 40/40.

One of the best Mario games on the Wii. Same with Mario Galaxy.


Tue 24th Nov 2009


KirkThat"s not how Famitsu scores work, each game is awarded a score out of ten by four people và they simply combine their scores to give a score out of 40.


Tue 24th Nov 2009


Hyper Luigi

Well, you heard it here first folks! Regardless of how great it is, a pet simulator CANNOT be that great.

Seriously though, I"m agreeing more with Kirk because at least he"s willing to give reasons why it"s good. You"re simply saying that because it"s part of the pet simulation genre it automatically makes it a seven.

I enjoyed the game when it came out, and actually got two versions. It was unlike any pet simulation game before it, và part of me says that it actually does deserve sầu a 10. The other part of me says "GIVE IT A 2" since it started the pet simulation craze.

AWESOME

Oh great, I see that after I post!


Tue 24th Nov 2009

Prosdy said it best. games just aren"t what they used to lớn be; in a good way. so what vị we do? Up our standards by enough so that anything not 3-D enough, online enough, or photo realistic enough has to lớn get lower scores? Can we not rate games on what they make us feel? The công nghệ has clearly allowed games khổng lồ become an art khung on par with film. How they make us feel is part of the pleasure of a great retro styled release, & 2-D platforming can live on indefinitely in it"s original form but with more and more polish on a new console. So if we are khổng lồ judge NSMBwii against any other 2-D platformer that has come before it, it is clearly the best there is và easily justifies such a high score even today. It can"t be judged against Galaxy, or Halo, or Resident Evils. Gaming is at a different place now. Should we really complain that there is such a flood of great material that high scores are really pretty easy to give out when you try to lớn keep each one in it"s proper context? If you prefer lớn judge each game on how it stands against every other game ever, or even every other game out right now it"s just... well good luck with that. When a real new mario bros game comes out và Miyamokhổng lồ had anything to lớn say about it, it"s an sự kiện that"s hard lớn top, but nowadays takes a little context lớn try and Review. Famitsu certainly has that.


Tue 24th Nov 2009


Bentendo-You don"t see the point, the game was simply not that fun. It was good, but not fun enough khổng lồ deserve a 10.


Tue 24th Nov 2009

I feel similarly--8/10 maybe, great platformer...but it was Mario DS with some kinda iffy tilt/motion added in. Definitely not 40/40 by any stretch...not even 36/40 imo; similarly worried about Bayonetta.

There is some fantastic polish (I will never tire of the koopas/goombas dancing khổng lồ the last 2 notes in the main phrase) but yeah...40/40 is absurd.
