279w ago - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Soulcalibur, Vagrant Story, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Nintendogs, Final Fantasy XI, and, Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Those are the only seven games to earn a perfect 40/40 score (aka: the Holy Grail of gaming accolades) from Famitsu.
Honestly, I am extremely surprised at this perfect score. As the third entry into the series, I had my doubts about whether or not the game will feel as fresh and original as the first two titles. Of course, this could still be the situation for reviewers when Brawl finally lands in North America on March 9th, but it's really hard to look past a perfect score from Famitsu.
Just to think, 24 hours ago, we were agonizing over yet another delay for Brawl. Now it looks like the wait might be well worth it.
