Japanese magazine Famitsu's review scores have long come under scrutiny for being, shall we say, less than honest. Nevertheless, it's still a big deal when the legendary tome dishes out one of its top scores. Death Stranding is the latest recipient of the publication's infamous 40/40, making it the 26th title to achieve the score after Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.
Hideo Kojima's latest has been described by some as divisive, but the reality is that the vast majority of its reviews are favourable. We also awarded the title a 10/10 in our Death Stranding review, so we're not going to take issue with Famitsu's score here.
