There is some good and useful information in this review. Problem is, it's presented in a somewhat clumsy fashion.

While I agree with what you are stating in the intro, it doesn't let the reader know what direction things are heading. After reading the intro. I have no idea if this is going to be a praise review, a bash review, or something in between.

One aspect I like is how you presented a couple of examples to show how certain types of mission are more fun and challenging in this game contrasted to its predecessor.

Also, you don't really wrap things up with the conclusion; you just add some more new information and just suddenly stop.

Overall, it is a good review with some useful information. I feel like I came away well informed about the game. I just think it could be presented a bit crisper.

I do agree that the last sentence or two of the outro is a little lazy and abrupt. I oddly couldn't find a good way to end the review.

As for the reason for how the review is setup, the intro basically asks the question of how AC2 is going to turn out, then goes into the rest of the review, which weighs the ups and the downs, with the positives outweighing the minor negatives.

Thanks for the feedback and comments on the review.

I head spaceshit noises.
