Famitsu reviews five PS3 launch games

Blake Snow

Some mates over at the E-mpire Forums have scrounged up what appear to be Japanese reviews of five PS3 launch titles by way of Famitsu magazine. Here are the goods on each:

Resistance: Fall of Man = 9, 8, 8, 8

  • Standard FPS gameplay
  • Excellent netplay
  • Very high standard of next-generation
Ridge Racer 7 = 9, 9, 9, 9
  • Totally satisfactory
  • The amount of content is totally satisfying
  • The high quality of the graphics and sound are very pleasing

Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire = 8, 8, 8, 8

  • 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
Miyazato (Sega) Golf Club = 7, 7, 7, 7
  • Good tempo
  • You can't accurately determine where your shot will fall
  • Doesn't really look next-generation
Genji: Days of the Blade = 7, 7, 7, 8
  • Camera sucks, but looks great
  • Challenging for beginners
  • Good amount of content
  • Good controls
If said reviews hold up (and assuming they're legit), it looks like PS3 has some launch winners in both Resistance and Ridge Racer 7. Too bad more people won't be able to play them at launch due to limited console availability.
