It's 7:20am here in Australia and I wake up to a bunch of reviews for this game.

Skimmed some of the reviews. Disappointed about the concensus on the story, but playing Judgment Demo last night at a friends house was so much fun.

I already know I'm going to have heaps of fun playing this game with a ton of hours invested into it.

I'm quite surprised at IGN's score tbh... lower than I expected. But then I never took that site's scores seriously since they have given very questionable scores in the past.

Just goes to show that, although as fans we want nothing more than to see this game be critically successful, scores are not gospel, even though that's easier said than done :p

Good to keep in mind that scores are affected by the period of time in the gaming industry they are given, as hard as that may be to remember at times.

I'd say it's doing pretty well for a game that was in development hell for 10 years, and for a title where the director had to sort out someone else's mess.

Not too many games could have survived such a feat imo.

Wow. Not sure what to think of that. Especially since they gave XIII-2 a perfect score and I wasn't totally fond of that one.
Game scores nowadays are definitely wacky, all over the place, non consistent, and should always be questioned lol

MSGV and Fallout 4 are great examples of questionable scoring.

In short, never fully believe them.. for any game :p

What's worse, Famitsu's scores are from a panel of 4 reviewers, each assign the game a score out 10, and that sum should give a score out of 40.

That 4 reviewers thought FFXIII-2 was a 10/10 was disconcerting, to say the least.

Seems like scores are pretty decent all around from the quick research I did. Nothing extreme to either end. I expected about as much. I'm just glad to see the entirely of the FNC nightmare put behind us and we can all move forward to greener pastures (VII Remake, XVI, etc.). Looking forward to playing XV for myself when more content is available and the base game can be purchased at a lower price point. Thanks, guys.

???? Days/Weeks/Months until I can get a new console and by extension the game :/
Haha, I feel you bro. I have the console, but sadly I can't afford the game right now. I'll have to see if someone can share their account with me to play the game, otherwise, it's going to be a while until I can buy it.
