Nintendo Reviews | Famitsu on Wii, Jump Ultimate Stars & Blue Dragon

By Adam Riley 29.11.2006 9

Below are the latest scores from Famitsu magazine, showing that as expected Wii Sports and Hajimete no Wii (Wii Play) both do not hold any real substance, thus have received decent, but not overly spectacular scores. The serious shock has to be Jump Ultimate Stars, which has actually scored less than its predecessor, despite having many more characters, a refined fighting system and online play.

Check out all the scores below:

  • Wii Sports (Wii, Nintendo): 7 / 7 / 8 / 8 - (30/40)
  • Hajimete no Wii (Wii, Nintendo): 7 / 7 / 6 / 8 - (28/40)
  • Jump Ultimate Stars (NDS, Nintendo): 7 / 7 / 8 / 8 - (30/40)
  • Otogi Juushi Akazukin (NDS, Nintendo): 7 / 8 / 6 / 5 - (26/40)
  • Simple DS Series Vol. 12: The Party Right Brain Quiz (NDS, D3): 7 / 5 / 7 / 6 - (25/40)
  • Chao Dream Touch! Happy Anniversary (NDS, Marvelous): 7 / 6 / 5 / 6 - (24/40)
  • And, for those that are interested, here are the other formats' scores, including Blue Dragon from Mistwalker, which is run by the creator of Final Fantasy:

  • Blue Dragon (Xbox 360, Microsoft): 9 / 9 / 9 / 10 - (37/40)
  • Yakuza 2 [Ryu ga Gotoku 2] (PS2, Sega): 9 / 10 / 9 / 10 - (38/40)
  • Madden NFL 07 (PS2, EA): 6 / 8 / 6 / 7 - (27/40)
  • Momotarou Dentetsu 16 (PS2, Hudson): 9 / 7 / 7 / 8 - (31/40)
  • Kidou Senshi Gundam SEED Destiny: Rengou vs. Z.A.F.T. II Plus (PS2, Bandai Namco): 8 / 9 / 9 / 9 - (35/40)
  • Zegapain (Xbox 360, Bandai Namco): 6 / 6 / 7 / 7 - (26/40)
  • Saru Get You: Pipo Saru Racer (PSP, Sony): 7 / 7 / 7 / 7 - (28/40)

    Absolutely fantastic scores for Blue Dragon and Yakuza 2. Smilie

    Hopefully they won't ruin the localization for Yakuza 2 this time around.

    It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

    Not particularly impressive for Ninty, eh? Great Blue Dragon score though. I was going to pick this up until Grumbles advised otherwise Smilie

    The first Jump Super Stars got 32, so there isn't really much of a difference, but i don't really take Famistu reviews seriously anymore.

    Edit; Good Score for Blue Dragon probably will sell so much if it was on the PS2 though.


    Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

    Blue Dragon (Xbox 360, Microsoft): 9 / 9 / 9 / 10 - (37/40)
    Yakuza 2 [Ryu ga Gotoku 2] (PS2, Sega): 9 / 10 / 9 / 10 - (38/40)"


    Those have come at the PERFECT time for people not getting a PS3 yet Smilie
    Rather then waiting, many might get a 360.

    Smilie very good scores there!!

    I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562
