Demo was meh, graphics are awesome tho. The graphics are pretty much exactly from the anime just a little cell-shaded sprinkled on it.

Shows how much I know...

From what I've seen, it looks like a solid title. - Over 40 characters - 7+ boss battles - many stages to fight in - online play I'm guessing it'll score an 8/10 here.

in a list of Japanese periodicals that does not reflect my tastes Famitsu is third from the top behind Super Happy Robot Love Time and Underage Blood Porn Quarterly.

Can't wait to pick up Vanquish next week! Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 will have to wait though. I don't want to spoil any of Shippuuden for myself.

I have to say, the game loos pretty solid, the gameplay looks fun, it has online, tons of characters, nice adventure mode, terrific graphics, sure, it may be a fan service button mashing game, but you have to admit, devs did a nice job with this game, have to say, i was about to get a multiplayer game for this winter, it was among Raw vs Smackdown 2011 or NBA2k11 but Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 took easily the crown, gonna get this on December, gather the cousins and have a hell of a time.

:| You hope? No offense but did you take 4th grade Math? 4 is 10% of 40, 40-37=3, so it's less than 10% off. Anyway no surprise, it's an anime game.

:cry: I wasn't talking about famitsu I was talking about U.S. sites like GAMESPOT, gametrailers, ign, gameinformer and so fort. Couldn't care less about famitsu's scores. xD yes I took fourth grade math but I am currently struggling with Algebra 2 :P

Famitsu reviewers have become way to easily impressed. They hand out high scores like candy on Halloween.

The double standards on this thread amazed me.

Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 39/49, yeah Famitsu scores are worthless, it's an anime game of course it score so well, Famitsu lost credibility long time ago.

Vanquish 37/40, nice score, way to go, awesome score.

Oh yeah, I'm real surprised when games like Blue Dragon and Infinite Undiscovery get good scores.

I'm not sure why people even care what score famitsu gives games when they can't actually read the reviews for themselves. Just weeboos.
