Famitsu, the most respected weekly gaming magazine in Japan, has put Shooting Star Rockman 3 through its trials, and the verdict is in: 32/40 (straight eights). A mediocre score; not the worst, not the best, but relatively good.
Wait a minute...that number sound awfully familiar. Oh that's right, it's the same score the first two entries in the series received. Fancy that!
SSR fans, I wouldn't get too upset. Famitsu is somewhat known to be a little bias towards games that aren't what they consider "popular." For Pete's sake, they gave Nintendogs a perfect 40/40. Nintendogs. 40/40. (It's a fun game, but definetly not worth a perfect score)

Wait wait, 32/40 is mediocre? I thought mediocre was around 20/40-29/40. To me 32 is good.ReplyDelete
protodude, what did you mean about the bias thing? Were you saying that Famitsu probably scored SSR3 too low?ReplyDelete
Not too low, but the same as the previous two. SSR3 is clearly an improvement over 1&2, but Famitsu appears to not have recognized this based on the score.
I am not sure.. I dont think this game is good since ryussei no rockman 1-2 and now 3rd.. It is getting bored quickly to me so I dont think it is good game. I would rate 32 is better suit for it. I am sorry but I am fan of Rockman and I know that Rockman 1-9 rocks.. This game....disappointment, really.ReplyDelete
Famitsu recognized this but I think they find it no different from 1&2 anyway. I agreed with Famitsu on this one.
We see it as an improvement, they probably see it as just another entry. I really enjoyed EXE6, but the magazines just rated it like the others, saying it was "more of the same"ReplyDelete
I'm just hopin' that rumor about Rockman.exe as a secret boss is true.
We all have our opinion, anonymous lol. I'm a MegaMan fan too and I'm really looking forward to this game. a 32/40 is a great score.ReplyDelete
I used to feel the same with Star Force 2 after finishing it, didn't think I would touch my Zerker file again after getting 100% on my Saurian file. A month later I'm hooked with my Zerker file. Show that MegaMan is good no matter his different versions.
Can't wait for Star Force 3 since it looks better than the other two.
