- Using specific experiences playing to game to highlight what's fundamentally flawed. Passing a checkpoint while falling from a ledge would really suck.

- Nice use of humor. Nearly chuckled at how she shakes like a meth addict line.

- Didn't realize she keeps a journal during her adventures. Having not played the game, this is nice to know.

- Like how you don't spend gobs of time on the plot and just get right to how the game handles.


- Don't really care for the intro. Reading the intro seems to be building toward a positive review, then you suddenly pull a 180. Personally, I don't care for that sort of thing.

- Most of the time, you speak as if you are directing Lara, then there is one line about halfway through where you say "Confidently I ran and jumped", which seems a bit awkward here.

- "...stubbornly refusing to show you anything except Lara's rear assets the majority" You could take out either "rear" or "assets" and this would still work.

All good point, Randxian. I'm not sure I agree about the last one, though I see where you're coming from, but the first two are really observant. I actually have some issues with the intro myself, for the same reasons you mentioned, and I KNEW I left a stray personal pronoun around somewhere. Thanks for finding it.

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

To be perfectly honest, I don't think the last "dislike" is that big of a deal. I only mentioned that because everyone kept critiquing my reviews in a similar fashion, telling me to chop unecessary words and make the writing as tight as possible.
