I really liked the first half of the review. That always sounds like a back-handed compliment, and I'm not saying the second half was awful, it simply didn't have the effect the first did. To begin with, you do a great job of describing the game in a fun way and do so seamlessly. But, by the time you get to the second half, it's like you've run low of ideas and know you still have all these things to talk about, so just spit them out. The biggest offender here was the music paragraph which, yes, is important enough to deserve a mention, but not right at the end in a "Oh, by the way" section. It feels like you had a clipboard with a checklist of things you needed to squeeze in when you get to parts like this.

But, yeah, the first half was much better. I enjoyed how you tied in how the Invaders were getting better, which made for an interesting transition on how Extreme updated the franchise. It's a good review, but it simply starts running out of momentum.

For us. For them. For you.

Didn't realize until today that this *was* a DS game. Bah, now I'll have to buy yet another one.

Third paragraph:

While of these can be overcome with some effort...

A word ("most", I suspect) escaped from your sentence and is currently living it up on Jamaica. Better recapture it.

This is a great review, I really enjoyed it. Having just played the game, I can say with confidence that the review says pretty much everything I could think to say about the experience, in a lively, engaging way. Kudos.

I don't have to prove I'm refined - that's what makes me refined!
