Not every reviewer has the awesome HonestGamers crew ready to proof read, and not every writer starts out as good as you are. Not every writer ever gets close to that good, even. Your review was awesome and reviews like the one you saw make me happier than ever that you decided to review it for HG.
GameRankings is pretty good, but sometimes it links to sites that are borderline and sometimes those borderline sites feature work from writers that they themselves likely figure are borderline. I know they must because sometimes that's what I have to do. It's just that my definition of "borderline" is a damn sight better than theirs, apparently. ;-)

Oh, heh, I wasn't trying to compare it to mine or anything; I just happened to see a review for the same game linked there and... well, look at it. Thanks, though!

What I find interesting is that this other review covers all the same points as yours and in the same order. Hmmm...

And not to knock the guy or anything, cause I definitely try and support anyone who puts forth the effort to produce something, but I've bookmarked that to be my go-to review in case I start to doubt my own skills.
I really did knock the guy there, though.

Jason is right.
To be honest, I wasn't much better prior to my career here at Honest Gamers. I've really improved after coaching sessions from veterans such as Felix, drella, Wolf Queen, aschultz, Woodhouse, Zipp, etc. Wow, that's a lot of help. :P
Well, the review does state " So if you have friends, then get them to play with you." Good advice.
As true said, that will be a good benchmark to go by in case someone here doubts his or her skills.
