Fire Emblem and Giftpia have been reviewed!
In this week's Famitsu two of our more anticipated titles were reviewed. Skip Ltd's self-proclaimed "Alternative RPG", Giftpia netted a Gold Award with an overall score of 35 (8,9,9,9). The reviewers said that though initial impressions showed the game was for children, it offered nice puzzle elements, great characters and a wonderful score. It's similar to Animal Crossing since players can dig, collect, and fish. In this unique RPG there are no experience points, and the theme is to "grow up".
Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken also received a gold award for its score of 34 (9,9,8,8) and the reviewers praised the very friendly tutorial system. It stays true to the series and features great characters and scenarios.
Here are this week's Top 30 notables:
1 Dragon Quest Monsters Caravan Heart ( 2nd to 1st)
4 Made in Wario (6th to 4th)
6 Pokemon Ruby / Sapphire (8th to 6th)
8 The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past and Four Swords (9th to 8th)
16 Soul Calibur II (GC) (7th to 16th)
5 Final Fantasy X-2 (slides behind Made in Wario)
