Konami’s Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for PSP has nabbed a perfect 40/40 score from Famitsu. People usually sit up and pay attention when this happens – Famitsu is the most influential game publication in Japan, so whatever they rate highly sells in vast numbers.

However, there is an element of controversy about the perfect score. Not only does Peace Walker feature adverts for Famitsu but Hirokazu Hamamura, the former Famitsu editor-in-chief, appears in the advert campaign for it.

It’s now the 14th game to get 40/40. Other titles to do so include The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Soul Calibur, Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy XII, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Monster Hunter Tri and Bayonetta.

    That’s ridiculous: who’d give Super Smash Bros a ‘perfect’ score?

  • Nonshinygoose

    Nintendogs got a 40/40 too

    Monster Hunter? It seemingly has the worst control scheme ever. And Bayonette is just Devil May Cry with boobs!
