Usually I like reading reviews when the two reviewers have given such drastically different scores, because comparing the two can usually lead one on to the path of truth. However, in this case, it's tough. It's like you got sent a different version of the game from woodhouse. He complains about Mackenzie's lack of character and thoughts. You praise her thoughts on the other characters. Woodhouse complains about the game not being comical, you rave about how funny it is. Woodhouse says there's no logic to the puzzles, you call the game pleasantly difficult.

So it comes down to who's review is the more compelling and the most believable.

It's a difficult decision. You both do a good job of infusing your reviews with emotion, even if they are emotions on polar ends of the spectrum. Ultimately, the thing I think you could've done better was to explain some of your adjectives. It's all well and good to say characters are funny, but it's well and BETTER to actually give an example of one of their jokes and let the reader decide for themselves.

Woodhouse has given plenty of reasons and examples as to why this game could be harsh on the soul. Your blatant enthusiasm makes me question woodhouse, frankly, and I give you props for that. But ultimately, he lays more evidence on the table.

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."
