A few days after it came out, it had mostly 5* reviews with barely any 1* reviews.

Now look at it:

Also, here are some things to consider:

1. There will obviously be SE "hater" trolls
2. Type-0 is considered an excellent game, is it not? That has a 3/5 on Amazon as well.

Didn't Dragon Quest IX get a bad Amazon score in Japan because trolls kept posting negative reviews? And what was the reason those trolls hated DQIX? No random battles? They were mad because the single WORST MOST AWFUL feature of any RPG had been removed? Insane does not begin to describe it.

Yeah, I don't trust J-Amazon reviews.

I think that when this game first came out, people gave it 5* based on first impressions. However, the people that have now finished the game are seeing that it's not that great and that's why loads of 1* are appearing.

It won't be long until the 1* scores surpass the 5* ones, the rate it's going at.

Amazon.jp user reviews are normally the epitome of the trope "They changed it, now it sucks." They gave Final Fantasy XII low scores (more negative than positive) because it was too different from the other FF's. >_>

Somehow, the amazon reviews westward are much better.

May I have a link to the FFXII amazon review scores? I'm curious, I just want to see.

And I want to see what GZay would say to that if it truly has a low score (for an FF game) in Amazon

**** Google Translate because I can't even understand why they give it high and low scores.
