Halo 3 rated by Famitsu

September 20, 2007

Finally we can see what Halo got.  Famitsu rated it 37/40.  WHAT?  Not PERFECT?  Being Japanese they are not as enthusiastic about shooters as North Americans are.  I expect the game will get a perfect from GameSpot, they like shooters alot!  Famitsu’s reasons for the less than perfect score were too many checkpoints and it felt too easy.  All I can say is, don’t listen to reviews until you have played the game.

BioShock is a first-person shooter set in the fantastically unsettling city of Rapture, a metropolis built under the sea by the megalomaniacal Andrew Ryan. Throughout your lengthy stay, you’ll find options for combat as intricate and enjoyable as the story and characters are to interpretation, something that only a handful of games can ever claim to offer.
