A very good review.

Thank you Bloomer! I try.

The one thing I would've like to talk about more in this review, but couldn't because of plot reasons was how good the ending was. I mean, I'm still thinking about it three days later. I still stand by the review, though. It's an incredibly tedious game, even with such a spectacular ending. If it hadn't been so short, I'm not sure I would've made it.

I kinda felt on my first read there may have been some disjoint of feel between the amount of praise throughout and the final message about tedium. But then I re-read it and I didn't feel it so much, so maybe I'd just read it too fast.

Usually now I just give one-liner thumbs ups now in feedback topics to save on typing, rather than launch into commentary, unless pressed/prompted.

I see where you could've gotten that. There is a little bit of jumping around during the review, in the same way that the game itself jumps the player around. Office scenes good; wandering scenes tedious; chase scenes good but lacking focus; ending of game good.

I don't think the review reads badly on any level, but next time I have a game that jumps around like that, I'll probably do more to bring the reader's focus to that as a featured aspect of the game.

So see? With just a single sentence, you managed to inspire me to see something that I can do next time.
