Very clever working the history into the gameplay. Usually history lessons in a review seem out of place, but here it works, serving as a smooth transition into talking about how the game functions.

I think on your next effort, you should take a little more care with your paragraph breaks, try to make them a little blockier as these tiny paragraphs are somewhat hard on the eyes.

Caught a quick error:

"Even today there thousands play this game"

See it? I would just take out the "there." That'll fix that one.

X-Com seems to be a very difficult game to review. Every review of it I've read seems to focus on another aspect of the game that another review DIDNT. I've read about 10 reviews for the game and its expansions, that adds up! I just get the impression that this is a HUGE game with lots of options and lots to cover.

Anyways, I look forward to your next review, Doomy! Thanks for joining the site!

Ah, error fixed. My thanks.

Hmmm... I may need a better avatar. Don't remember choosing this one.

It's the one that appears by default if the user hasn't chosen one yet. It's easy to fix -- just click on the image and you can browse through others.

It's the generic first-post need-to-select-avatar pic. It's terrible so that people will be shamed into changing it quickly.

I see. Thanks. A quick search brought up this Guts one which will temporarily suffice. I've never actually read/seen Berserk but Zipp will know why this one stood out. ;)

Indeed, I do recognize this face.

It's worth nothing that I had to go in and edit in a lot of the line breaks in this review because it looked like this.
Where the next paragrapgh just started, making everything look like a huge block of eye-raping text.
You should avoid this if you have any pity on your reader.

Instead, you should format it more so it looks like this.

Observe the blankness in between the two lines! It is your friend.


For us. For them. For you.

Old habits die hard. I usually write for print, and if I put blank lines between each paragraph I'd get yelled at.

Still, I can adapt.

Thanks for the memories. Good review about a great game ground breaking game.
