10/2 Update:

3rd Strike: 7.9/10
JP Games: No Number Rating (<- German)

Not sure what to think of these German reviews, really, given its denied classification there. XD

They're probably like import reviews...makes sense given that it's not like it's impossible to get your hands on a PEGI copy right?

Plus, I'm sure very few gamers in Germany are exactly happy about the rating denial.
Not too surprising to see German reviews honestly....a little odd, but not surprising.

And it WAS up for a few days there, right? Maybe they got copies that way. XD ...Hopefully they didn't lose 'em afterwards.

Just stopping in to say that I want to personally thank Rednal for gathering all of these reviews! I'm also very happy that the reviews are almost entirely positive, very few low scores. Looking great!

Oh, and speaking of...

10/10 Evening Update:

3WireL: 4/5
Koi-Nya: 75/100 (Spanish review)
Next Save Point: 7.25/10
PS4Blog.net: 8.5/10 (A surprisingly good JRPG)
PS4 Attitude: 3.7/5

I believe the game can be considered officially "out" now. At least, it's scheduled for delivery for me tomorrow.

At this point, the average rating of the game is about 7.18/10. There were two genuinely bad reviews I found (which probably pulled the average down lower than a real majority view would suggest) and a couple of really delighted ones. The overall sentiment among reviewers who've actually played the game is that it's pretty fun (if a little grindy at times), although maybe not a game to play around others. So, basically, exactly as expected. XD

I'm just hoping that when I get the game myself, I can share most of that general sentiment.

I've been immersed far too deeply in all of the negativity that I'm afraid it's actually affected my mentality regarding the game. I've been rather cynical and pessimistic of late, even with taking a short break from it all.

Yup...It's looking like the game is genuinely being seen for what it is...an overall decent game with quirks.
I kinda figured those low notes in the reviews would hurt the overall average, but that's the way of averages I guess.

@shadowmaksim
I wouldn't worry about the game being good where it counts in spite of the censorship baggage, legit or not. (whole mess of its own issues, unfortunately)
To put it another way, if the negative vibes get the better of you then no matter how good the game *actually* is you'll never get to objectively make that call.

Yeah, the need to censorship and lost audio is self contrived cultural bullshit...but that's reality and reality doesn't give a crap about us any more than our opinions actually give a crap about the reasons why things happen, good or bad.

That said...and going by what the first game offered and current reviews, things could've been WAY worse.
The writing doesn't suck and the gameplay, edits in minor problem areas aside, is solid.

It is easy to be cynical though, especially with games like Valkyrie Drive being released uncensored but yeah, that's double standard market bullshit for ya.

Shouldn't stop you from enjoying a good game or trusting your own firsthand judgement though yeah?
..Err...I just meant to say that the game is well worth the time and shouldn't disappoint.
