Short but very effective review for a game that not a lot of people are likely to ever review. Thanks for sharing!


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"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

I liked this one; it really does feel like the review would have been bloated if it was any longer. We know what tennis is, so we don't need that drilled into our head, and a lot of information is offered without paragraphs of text.


For us. For them. For you.

Hey, Samildanach! Good to see you on here, man!


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

Thanks, Zipp. Good to be here.

And thanks to honestgamer and EmP for the feedback. I decided to focus on the things I thought I'd want to know if I was reading. The result was uncharacteristic brevity, but I'm glad people feel the review does its job.
