Iím afraid this is going to have to be a shorter RotW topic. If any of the three mentioned authors would like additional feedback on what I thought about their review, I will be happy to further explain myself in a few days when Iíll have more time to go in greater detail. However, I do thank all those who contributed for making this a competitive week.

As always, staff reviews are exempt and only one review per writer may get a nod.




2nd Runner-Up: Madworld (Wii) by Disco
As usual when reading a Disco review, I gain a clear picture of whatís going on and why the content in the game is either good or bad. This Madworld game looks and sounds intriguing, and Discoís smooth writing helps to parallel the awesomeness that is conveyed through the images provided on the bar to the right of the review. However, for once Iíd like to see him begin a review without beating around the bush in the intro. Heís beaten that one trick pony into the ground. Please, figure out a new way to start out your reviews!!!

1st Runner-Up: Wii Fit (Wii) by Jerec
Itís nice to see Jerec contributing on a regular basis now, what with this being his second of three reviews on the year. I think part of the reason why a review like this is so effective, at least from the standpoint of someone who would be interested in Wii Fit (thatís not me, but I can pretend), is that Jerec provides all the necessary information regarding how all the elements come together to form one lackluster package. All I care about is the quality of the game in question, not whether or not the author can solely make cute statements. This review answered all the questions I would have if I were interested in buying it, and Jerecís even willing to admit that he received this game for the very reason it exists.

Review of the Week: Ultima: Quest of the Avatar (NES) by Dagoss
I donít want to say too much since Iím judging this piece for the MMT, but I found the argument to be very intriguing. The conclusion sucks, but beyond that, I think this review is strong enough that we can just pretend that the last paragraph doesnít exist because Dagoss is so passionate about what heís saying for the first 15 paragraphs that that final one, if taken with a grain of salt, doesnít do anything to make this review any worse than the other 9 or 10 quality reviews subbed this week. I will elaborate later as to why I dislike the final paragraph, but rest assured that in spite of its existence I still think this is the strongest user review of the week. So thatís gotta mean something, right?


EmPís up next!

Thank you for that lovely comment. I felt I had to be honest about Wii Fit and why I was using it, because I think it might have undermined the review had I neglected to mention it. >_>
