Happy that MX vs. ATV Reflex got a good review, been playing it since christmas and it's the most realistic motocross game I have ever played.
Well from reading a reviews from people that have got past the first 5 hours of the game its awesome, it has one of the best endings and final boss battles since FFVI, the best music of any final fantasy to date which is saying something. Also you can go anywhere and in fact if you want to do everything you have to go back and revisit places you cisited before.
There are areas so vast that you need a chocobo to get across and so much that you can easily miss in these areas, there is over 30 hours of side missions and quests that open up new areas too
But for some reviewers to give it 4/10 is just pathetic, especially when you see what other games they gave 5 or more out of 10 to..
Im story and character driven too and this is aparantly one of the best FF storylines with really believable characters and fast paced combat, there will be challenges that you will not be able to do when you first find them that will require you to come back much much later in the game when u uber enuf.. Also the sphere system of leveling up seems a lot more advanced than previous versions in the fact you can choose what path to level up and how much.... Of course by the tiem im done all my characters will have all paths completely unlocked lol ..
Im really excited about this game..
Heavy Rain i like the demo but the controls are way off for me, doesnt mean i wont buy the game i have the limited edition on order, im there for the story and characters and plot.
Bayonetta got 93% review and to be honest after finishing it i couldnt wait to trade it in, the game was complete junk, yet darksiders that got 70% was an awesome game that i played through multiple times and ended up gettingthe plat on..
I wish they judged games o nthe game themselves like they did with uncharted, which is just a blatant and i mean blatant rip of of tomb raider it brings nothing new to the table yet its 10/10, which i think it deserves because its a brilliant game even tho its just a blatant copy of another title.

All I've seen is magazines slating FF, it sounds just like any other FF really but I guess it's cool to slate JRPGs! The only thing holding it back is the 360. I'm pretty sure they could of crammed more stuff onto the discs and make the game a bit worse on the 360 though I mean we get shi**y 360 ports What's with the MAG score though? Did they get killed online a lot? I'm not buying it but the beta was really good xD
Mine came this morning - nice to see one magazine not going nuts over FFXIII. They also mention Dantes Inferno is under 6 hours long, which is a bit of a shame for a game with no multiplayer...
Really looking forward to Heavy Rain now - looks stunning, especially as i loved Farenheit
If it's just the linearity then I don't mind. FFX was one of the best games of the series, on a par with VII. Either way I've got to buy it as decent RPGs are scarce.
