Early PS3 reviews positive |

IGN commented that this weeks Famitsu reviewed Sega Golf Club, Resistance, Gundam and Ridge Racer 7. Netplay appears to be working well, and is lag free (no mention was made of the bandwith medium this was tested on however).

While Sega ended up with the short end of the stick review wise, Ridge Racer 7 scored the highest of all the titles. Go PS3.


Edit by Henning:

“duckroll” over at NeoGAF gives this rundown:

Sega Golf:

– Good tempo
– You can’t accurately determine where your shot will fall
– Doesn’t really look next-generation


– Camera sucks, but looks great
– Challenging for beginners
– Good amount of content
– Good controls


– Standard FPS gameplay
– Excellent netplay
– Very high standard of next-generation


– Excellent models of Mobile Suits
– Opinions on the game are divided because it relies heavily on accurate input
– The systems are problematic
– Great textures
– Tons of optional and unlockable content
– Overall it’s satisfying even though opinions are divided on it

Ridge Racer 7:

– Totally satisfactory
– The amount of content is totally satisfying
– The high quality of the graphics and sound are very pleasing

    Looks like PS# is going to rock.

    I knew from the beginning that the PNP would run better than xbox live. We shall see, but im thinking that the games will run nice and smooth.

    PC – lol

  • Good to know Resistance & RR7 rated well. Because I pre-ordered both of those 🙂

  • I’m still waffling about RR7. I’m not a big fan of drifting, but that game’s tracks sure do look sweet.

    I’m cautiously optimistic- you should never read too much into Famitsu’s reviews… but the fact that they are not slating the launch lineup is definitely a good thing.

    In other news Resistance:FOM gets a 9/10 in the forthcoming OPM. It is only 12hours long and the story is not as strong as it could be, but otherwise it is a really decent effort 😀

    Unfortunately and very oddly that is the only PS3 game reviewed in a magazine which is not due for publication until after the PS3 launch 😕

  • That is odd. I don’t care much for OPM anyway. I bet PSM will give R:FOM a 10.

    On a side note looks like Genji may be worth it after all.

    I look forward to the reviews from Gamespot, IGN, and a couple of others. They really don’t care what people think about their reviews. Fanboys sometimes complain but I find those sites to be the most accurate.

    PC that is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time. With only a few people on the network of course it will run smooth. Wait until launch when their are 100,000 people trying to play Resistance.

    Resistance would be the only game I would get at launch that isn’t multiplat. CoD3, Fear, and a couple of others look really good and Oblivion is a must buy for any RPG fan.

  • Looks like PS

  • Ted

    Yeah, it does.
