First Monster Hunter 3 review score, rated by Famitsu
Update: A second report states that the game received 10s from each reviewer – We’ll wait for a 100% confirmation, but it looks like the game did indeed receive a perfect score.
Monster Hunter 3 was released in Japan over the weekend, but no Famitsu review was provided in last week’s issue. Typically, however, the magazine waits a few days to review some of the bigger titles. This week, Famitsu reviewed the game and gave a very favorable score all around. Three reviewers awarded Monster Hunter 3 with tens while only one other editor handed out a nine. The combined scores fall just shy of perfect. Monster Hunter 3 is yet another title to have received an outstanding review score in recent weeks – Dragon Quest IX was the other, with 40/40.
