    So the 3DS version of E.X. Troopers is superior to the PS3 version and BOII is the highest rated game of them all. Famitsu’s reviewers at their best.

  • Duc PC-QB

     Hey, they rated 3DS version better than PS3.

    I bet this magazine is full of kid reviewers.

    • yes the 3ds version is better, it has the same gameplay quality and graphics as the ex troopers for the ps3 version, but it’s cheaper, that mean BETTAH

    • Kazziyan

      ? my brain hurts.

  • MrKappa

    I got nothing against CoD but that score has to be paid off. Shooters always sell like crap in Japan and never score that well save for CoD… which only leads one to believe activision is not below paying even foreign reviewers.

    • YangTerlupakan

      Are u forget the weeks when Ni No Kuni Beating by MW 3??????

    • almostautumn

       That’s nonsense; shooters don’t sell because they don’t have a consumer base in Japan, sort-of like Visuals novels here in the west (not as extreme, but still). No matter the sales figures though, which is something plenty of people forget, a good game is still a good game, and so I’m sure the reviewers recognized, by what they’re paid to do and not paid off to do, that Blops 2 is a solid video game from a solid franchise. It deserves the score, whether it’s going to sell hot or not.

      Second of all, Square-Enix publishes CoD in Japan.

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops II is rated 37/40 while E.X. Troopers on 3DS is rated higher than the PS3 version? I don’t even.

    So much wrong with the reviews this week. Hell, even the new Hot Shots Golf beat E.X. Troopers. I mean, come on. Sure, I’m biased towards E.X. Troopers, but this is just bad…

  • talesoffan

    Hmmm Magicbox has different numbers:

    E.X. Troopers (PS3, Capcom): 9, 9, 9, 9 – (36/40)
    E.X. Troopers (3DS, Capcom): 9, 9, 8, 8 – (34/40)

    • Those numbers (the PS3 ones) are incorrect. Double-checked with Sokuho: http://hokanko-alt.ldblog.jp/archives/67734966.html

  • PrinceHeir

    why is the PS3 version of Ex Troopers was minus by 2 points!?!?!

  • almostautumn

    PS3 EX scoring lower than the 3DS is shocking; I haven’t played the 3DS demo, but I was absolutely astonished by the PS3 version. The online is such a blast too; probably put 10 hours alone into that demo just blasting those damn aliens with others. I really wonder what it is about the PS3 version, and not in comparison to the 3DS’ lower price tag, that caused that.

    Want to import so bad, but ya’ know Capcom is going to bring it. I don’t think there’s a single console title they haven’t brought over yet ‘sides MH3HD, so I’d be genuinely shocked if it doesn’t show up.
