" 40/40?! For Devil May Cry with Tina Fey?! That's shocking. I'd heard some good things from E3, but 40/40? Madness.  Shame I probably won't like this game, because I really don't like DMC games. "
Fixed. 
Also, I think this game looks really cool and all but I doubt it's perfect

Yeah, because Bayonetta couldn't possibly be better than Uncharted 2, right?
Right... Not even close... "
Aren't you the guy who complained about Uncharted being "underrated" by Gametrailers, when they gave it a fucking 9.3? I'm not even going to bother with you -- you've lost your credibility. I'm sure the game's fantastic, maybe even a masterpiece, but complaining about a score like that is something only a fanboy would do.

@Icemael: 
 
No, people like you will just spin what they say to make it sound like that. I said over and over that I do not think they underrated it, but merely that their praise and their score did not correlate.

@LiquidPrince: I was pretty sure "underrated" was the exact term you used? Oh well, must have been mistaken then. But still. 9.3. It doesn't matter how much praise they gave it -- 9.3 is not a score you complain about. At all. 
 
And honestly, I wouldn't be surprised at all if Bayonetta is better than Uncharted. It does, of course, depend on your personal taste, but if you're into this type of game Bayonetta is shaping up to be the grandest, most impressive action title ever. It surpasses anything I've seen in the genre by far
 
Don't get me wrong, I am in no way trying to say that Uncharted isn't fantastic, or that it doesn't deserve all the praise it has received. I'm just saying that, in my opinion, it's very possible that Bayonetta could turn out better,  if only for people who are into the genre.

@Icemael: Totally agree with you... I hate how everyone is shitting on Famitsu because they didn't give Uncharted a 40/40. IGN didn't give it a 10. Neither did Gamespot. Or 1up. Or many others. Yet Bayonetta gets a great review from an audience that would get it's weird style, and no, they're a joke.    
 
In fact, Famitsu uses four reviewers, so wouldn't their reviews become more reasonable? It's not just coming from one person who might not even be into that genre.

Why is this even being compared to Uncharted 2? Maybe if Nathan Drake had nicer boobs....

I'm really surprised by this but there's still quite a large chunk of my brain going "maybe it's a Japanese thing".

Have to be honest here, think the game looks horrid. Not to mention the main figure of the game gives me the creeps.

@Al3xand3r: Seeing as Modern Warfare 2 got a 39, I see that Uncharted 2 deserves at least a 40.

@solidejake: good for you?

Sorry to bump an old topic, but I remember seeing this and thinking that Famitsu was in the developer's pocket.  Now though, in retrospect having played the game to completion many times and seen what's come out since (great as some of those games may be), I couldn't agree more.  This so far, is my game of the year and is well deserving of a perfect score.
