You know the game has yet to being released in Japan, I wonder if it's different or if the framerate have being fixed.

No, Famitsu just rates games too highly. Sonic '06 got a 30/40; they're like a Japanese Play.

Either that, or they just happen to think it's good and people think there must be a problem. For some reason, the second reason makes more sense.

Bad it's not that great of a game, especially compared to what is currently available on the market.

You're not listening Power C. They gave Sonic 06 a 30/40. Famitsu generally rates games higher than they should. I'd say they were like a Japanese Play, if Play Magazine didn't already have a Japanese division. But yeah. Famitsu is basically a corporate puppet./whore.

that's a fantastic score anyway, it's probably fair, possibly only slightly too high

Famitsu tends to ignore stuff like technical problems, long load times, clumsy menus and some obvious, but very irritating design flaws (like a game that encourages replaying, or dying a lot, but doesn't allow you to skip cutscenes).

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

LOL, right. But really, The Last Remnant got a 38/40, Gundam: Crossfire, a 32/40, Nintendogs, a perfect 40/40: There is something wrong with those guys.

think

1. Famitsu are sellouts

2. We only get scores, since we can't read the reviews. So in the end you're just posting a NUMBER.

3. But who cares it's FAMITSU! They are hugely relevant in Japan. And they are Japanese, so we must respond to someone posting their scores with awe and reverence.
