This was a good approach for the game, I felt. It should go nicely with my own review and really give people a full idea of what it feels like to play Fable II and to love it.

When you've had more time away from your review, I hope that you'll go back over and reading it carefully again. There were probably around 8 or 10 instances where you used a word other than the one that you clearly intended to use. If you fix those, this is a smooth review that's almost completely free of actual grammatical errors and a joy to read.

"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

You know... I just have to point out the irony: Your sentence--in which you mention Emp's mistakes--contains an error.

That's what happens when I revise tense at the last minute, true. My comment wasn't meant to stand the test of time, however, and EmP's review could be well-suited for that purpose with a few minor alterations.

I've gone through the review again and fixed up what errors I can find (for instance, the ghost is no longer mopping. Now he just seems lazier). Thanks for giving me a nudge that these things needed doing.


For us. For them. For you.
