First PS3 reviews printed by Famitsu

The first reviews for five of the PS3 launch titles are in, and they seem about average for a system launch. Four reviewers, from the gaming mag Famitsu, got to review the first of the bunch. Here are more details:

Miyazato Golf Club = 7, 7, 7, 7
Genji: Days of the Blade = 7, 7, 7, 8
Resistance: Fall of Man = 9, 8, 8, 8
Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire = 8, 8, 8, 8
Riiiiidge Racer 7 = 9, 9, 9, 9

And their comments about each title:

Sega Golf

  • Good tempo
  • You can’t accurately determine where your shot will fall
  • Doesn’t really look next-generation


  • Camera sucks, but looks great
  • Challenging for beginners
  • Good amount of content
  • Good controls


  • Standard FPS gameplay
  • Excellent netplay
  • Very high standard of next-generation


  • Excellent models of Mobile Suits
  • Opinions on the game are divided because it relies heavily on accurate input
  • The systems are problematic
  • Great textures
  • Tons of optional and unlockable content
  • Overall it’s satisfying even though opinions are divided on it

Ridge Racer 7

  • Totally satisfactory
  • The amount of content is totally satisfying
  • The high quality of the graphics and sound are very pleasing

The total average per person came out to be 8, 7.8, 7.8, 8 – while the overall score came out to be 7.9. That sounds pretty good to me, but then again, the Xbox 360 launch title average was a similar 7.8. And this is without the rest of the launch lineup scores, so I’m sure the PS3 launch titles will average at about the same as the 360’s did.

A good question to ask now is whether or not you’ll be able to find a PlayStation 3 to play any of them on, and whether or not you have the disposable income to invest in a larger HDD…

Consider adjusting your own notion process and giving other people who might look over this the benefit of the doubt.
