Will, I didn't care for this review. In parts it's strictly sectioned and some of the metaphors you use (steak & parsley) just don't really fit. In other parts, like when you're describing mechanics, the writing isn't particularly interesting or even captivating. It's flatly presented.

Since you gave the game a 5/10, perhaps you weren't too excited when you wrote the review, which I can understand. But I would personally like to see a better and more refined incorporation of a game's elements for the future.

I didn't know if you saw it. You never said anything.

Oh.

Yeah, that's cause I kinda agree. This review was much less a labour of love than some of my others.

I see. I understand that it can be laborious to have to write about a game you're not thrilled to cover. Should you ever find yourself in a similar situation where you don't feel that what you've written stands out, that it's not up to snuff, you should feel confident in asking EmP, Jason, etc. for their views on it prior to releasing it for the whole world to see. I don't know if you do that or not, but I'm saying this not just to you but to everyone.

It's potentially helpful to get a second opinion on something you've written, especially if you're not comfortable or satisfied with it.

If you're feeling particularly daring, you can even ask an elitist such as myself for advice should you ever feel that it's in your best interest. :D

Well thanks. I'll definitely keep that in mind. ^_^
