Popular Japanese magazine Famitsu have reviewed the upcoming 360 and PS3 action-horror Resident Evil 5 and the upcoming DS RPG 7th Dragon and they were impressed, giving RE5 a 38/40 and 7thD a 33/40. Go to the source for the full reviews.

- Resident Evil 5 (10/10/9/9, 38 points): "There's no dramatic change as there was from RE3 to RE4, but there's still an evolutionary process here," as one put it. "No major surprises; just an ease of play and a visual, control, and gameplay standard that's top-of-the-line," said another. And that, really, is the worst you can say about Capcom's latest, a game otherwise described as a "massive, valuable package."

- 7th Dragon (9/8/8/8, 33 points): If RE5 is Japan's big million-selling blockbuster of the week, then 7th Dragon is the game that all the diehards will buy instead. "I get a definite Etrian Odyssey vibe to the game, which plays out pretty dramatically story-wise," one reviewer said. "From the simple gameplay to the 2D map, you'll like this if you're into traditional RPGs."

    Good. RE deserves it.

    I'm betting it wins at least one Game of the Year award.
