It was nice to see a Fate/stay night review! There seemed to be a problem with apostrophes (they don't appear at all in the review), so I suggest you go back in and edit it a bit to make it appear properly on the site.

The interspersion of "unlimited blade works" was cool, although I'm not sure how many people will understand what that is. Most people will realize it has something to do with the game, but won't know what. If you can pull off a clever reveal at the end, it would be significantly stronger. But still, I thought this review worked.

I was a little confused by the review, because isn't it Fate night a hentai title? Yet there seems to be little sex here and what few mention you do give to the sex is negative. Now, I appreciate a good story as much as the next guy, but if I go out to buy a hentai game (theoretically, mind you) I'm gonna want sex. I'm not going to be looking for a gripping tale.

Just wondering how that fits into such a high score for the game, or whether or not it deserves some mention that the game, at least, is maybe not looking to please its target audience.

Hentai games that focus on sex tend to suck. That's one of my biggest beefs with the USA's selection of hentai... but then again, the pure all-out sex games tend to be the cheapest to license, since they're usually the least popular in Japan.

Fate/stay night totally pleases its target audience -- if I recall properly, it was the absolute highest-selling PC game in Japan the year it came out, and would have been the highest-selling the next year too (except that the Fate/stay night expansion pack outsold it that year).

I think the review does a decent job of establishing what the game is about, so that people can make up their own minds. You've decided that you're not interested because of the lack of sex, so the review worked!

Oh, no, I'm interested, I just always assumed that if people were buying hentai games, it was for the sex.

Huh, dunno what happened with those apostrophes. I think I got all of them. As for UBW, I don't know what sort of reveal would be appropriate. Maybe I could submit some sort of screenshot of it?
