Famitsu is an important Japanese video game magazine. It is actually separated into four submagazines that are published at different times of the month: Weekly Famitsu, Famitsu Cube/Advance, Famitsu PS2 and Famitsu Xbox. Weekly Famitsu is considered to be a very respected source of news and reviews in the industry.


Famitsu reviews are generally held in high regard for their high standards. They get 4 different reviewers, each with distinct taste in games. These reviewers range from old ladies to dance game fans. For every game, about 2 of the reviewers chosen are people who generally don't play this type of game. The other 2 are reviewers who would most likely enjoy the game. Each of the four reviewers give the game a score out of 10, and the score is added up. For this reason, a score of at least 20 is typical.

Perfect scores are rare. The only games to score 40/40 are: Vagrant Story, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Soul Calibur, Nintendogs and Final Fantasy XII.
