The score is still the highest among the most recently reviewed by the Japanese magazine.
As we get closer to the date when Street Fighter V hits the market, the first reviews for the game are starting to surface online. Famitsu has published a whole swatch of reviews of games (including Street Fighter 5) that are among the most anticipated in Japan. While there are some things that have apparently dragged the score down a bit, it’s still one of the most highly scored reviews of the batch Famitsu just released.
It appears that the lack of really good single player content has brought the game’s score down a little bit, but it should be pointed out that 35 out of 40 is a pretty good score. That would seemingly equal out to 8.5 to 9 out of 10 when talking about reviews from other respected publications.
Among the biggest positives from the review is that the controls seem to be quite a bit better than what we’ve seen from other recent fighting games. The triggers are also up to snuff more than in the past and character’s weak points can be easily decided. All of this is good news for the upcoming fighter which is bound for the PS4 and PC.
GamingBolt’s review will be published next week.
