Famitsu Update: Peace Walker is Perfect
This week’s Famitsu update has arrived a couple of hours ago. I’ll “summarize” the main info we have from today:
Peace Walker, the latest outing of the Metal Gear franchise, have received a perfect score from Famitsu (40/40), and this is the first PSP game to do so. below is an excerpt of the review thanks to a translation by Andriasang:
* Single player is consistently thrilling and totally absorbing.
* During co-op play, while the feeling of tension is reduced because you have friends with you on the mission, the game does manage to create a strong sense of togetherness.
* The story and cut scenes have a charm, making the game feel like an “evolved” Metal Gear Solid.
* The Mother Base portion of the game is deep, and it’s impossible to stop sending POWs over via balloon. The balloon system will make it so that you won’t want to kill enemies — which is the actual aim of the series.
* Some of the actions are missing, but the confusion clears once you get used to it.
* Controls during battle are complex, but you’ll get used to it.
* Menus are well designed and easy to use.
Next, Project K would be a PSP Ryu Ga Gotoku (or Yakuza ) game. It will star Tatsuya Ukyou, a teenage kid and the location will be at Kamurocho yet again. The director of the games, Toshihiro Nagoshi said that the game will retain the DNA of the series, just that it will be a portable version.
I will update with another blog post on Friday (or Saturday) with the scans showing the rest of the info. Stay tuned!
