Of course, everything goes pair-shaped when the customers are less than happy with their stay.

Did you mean 'pear-shaped' there? I rather think you did.

I won't go off on a huge rant here (hopefully), but I disagree rather strongly with the idea that one episode in a 'season' of a game needs to improve over its predecessor to warrant the same rating. All of the episodes are produced from the start--separate muffins from the same tin, so to speak--so if something is good enough to get a 3 one time, it shouldn't get a 2 the next time for not being a muffin of superior quality.

I was glad to see that you delved into the technical flaws that this one had (and its predecessor apparently didn't), but I wished that you would have spent more time considering this episode on its own merits and maybe more time discussing the pacing of the plot. When you went briefly into that sort of stuff in your text, that was when your review was at its finest, so I was somewhat disappointed that there wasn't more of that and less of the discussion about how this should have been better than the first episode and how the next one needs to be better, as well.

It was all still a well-written review, mind, but it was almost even better.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Good typo-hunting. Eradicate it for me, would you? Cheers.

I made that the focus because I gave Ep1 the benefit of the doubt for being the first in the series. As it got better as it went along, I'd hoped the follow-up would keep that pace and excitement, but it doesn't. It flops back to zero again, and never really picks up as much as the first one. It's certainly nowhere near as amusing as Ep1.
