Hey, man, this was a good review, one of your better ones in recent history. I really enjoyed it. I don't think I'm in the mood for a FPS right now, otherwise I'd grab this based on your description. A little more detail on how the gameplay handles might have been nice, just to give me some sense of where it falls in the grander scheme of FPS games.

But a very fine job, one worthy of a good stiff drink. Which I shall now take. Of lemonade.

Thanks for the feedback. There's so much that could be written about this game. I already produced a much longer review than I really wanted to, without anything that I felt like cutting. Going into more gameplay details would've easily taken it up over the 2000-word mark, which is death for a review, so I had to make decisions about what to cover and I'm pretty happy with my choices. Besides, I think most people know what to expect from an FPS, more or less. Go into this expecting that--along with the modifications I chose to write about--and you should have about the experience you'd expect.

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? 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

That actually would've been a great line for the review.
