Famitsu FF XIII imperfect score explained, and all of FF games scores by Famitsu

Posted by: Ahmed Al-Dajani 09/Dec/2009
Now with Famitsu's Final Fantasy XIII score is up (39/40), there are many fans who are questioning why the game hasn't got a perfect (40/40) score from Famitsu. Famitsu score system, which consists of four reviewers rating games on a scale of 1-10 has given the latest entry in the Final Fantasy series: (10, 9, 10, 10).

According to one of the reviewers, up until the mid-way point of the game, the story seemed be linear and that it didn't offer any new "gimmicks" in its story telling. Though, all of the reviewers have praised the game's well done cut scenes and strategic combat system.  
Although the game hasn't got a perfect score from Famitsu, I think that the game will be fantastic. For comparison's sake, here's how Famitsu has scored other Final Fantasy games:  
Final Fantasy I - 35 Final Fantasy II - 35 Final Fantasy III - 36 Final Fantasy IV - 36 Final Fantasy V - 34 Final Fantasy VI - 37 Final Fantasy VII - 38 Final Fantasy VIII - 37 Final Fantasy IX - 38 Final Fantasy X - 39 Final Fantasy XI - 38 Final Fantasy XII- 40 Final Fantasy XIII - 39

The best game in the series is FFX, also I respect FF 6 and FF 7. FF XII sucks when compared to other games in the series.

If there's one thing i'm not looking forward to in FFXIII it's the active - time battle system, i much prefer the turn - based combat from FFX. However the rest of the game looks perfect. Also, to the guy who said FFXII sucked, no it didn't. Final Fantasy XII was majestic, not as good as X but definetly the second - best FF game ever cretaed (At least so far).

FFX used the Active Time Battle system... XIII simply uses an advanced form of it that has a faster pace, allows chained combos plus other additions. "Final Fantasy XII was majestic" and several other spelling/grammar mistakes. Are you even out of primary school? Claiming X and XII are the best ever FF games suggests you've hardly tried any before the PS2 and somewhat contradicts your comment about not looking forward to FFXIII's battle system. It's much closer to X's 'turn-based' ATB system than XII was.
