I am sorry DE but not getting the name right is just not forgivable. I hope you know that was just about the only thing that knocked down your score from me. Overall your review was interesting and I did like the description of the story opening. This line was pretty good "A bit harsh, but that is the way they roll in Al-Quadim." If you had left out the "u" in the game name it would have changed your score by a lot.

I didn't even think of that when I made the post, but now that you mention it, alright, I'll bite. You are right, but it's not like I did the title for said review in the game database. I went to "Reviews", scrolled down for the PC, found the game in question's only entry, and clicked "Add review". I didn't make the actual data base for the game, I know the sodding name of the game, hell I didn't type it wrong a single time (at least not to my knowledge) in the actual review, so yeah, you can't or at least shouldn't pin on me that someone who made the game database missed the "u" in the title.

But like I said, it's okay, it's done and over with so let's move on.

There is no "u" in the title. You'll have to supply evidence, because I've looked up the box cover, checked it against other sites, and we have testimonial from CoarseDragon and the database appears correct. "Al-Qadim" is the spelling in the D&D community (site) and the game is based off the D&D theme.

You are correct. I checked a few pages more and it seems that I was in the wrong, so apologies, could have sworn the system was Al-Quadim. Happens when you review games from the past.

No sweat. We make errors all the time too (see: here).

That being said, I hope DE wasn't seriously marked down for the typo.

I don't know. I'd have trouble putting complete faith in a guy that didn't spell the game right and on a contest level it's a legitimate repeated mistake, no typo (some judges dock for those, too...). Journalism students routinely fail assignments for getting proper names incorrect and that doesn't seem like an unreasonable standard for someone to hold when judging.

If everyone judged the same, then we wouldn't have four of 'em. We all look at different things.

I am sorry that happened and I can understand it because "Q" is normally followed by "u". Once would have not been to bad but every time and everywhere the game name was mentioned. There were a couple of other minor things I mentioned one but if that mistake had not been there I believe I would have gone with a low eighties score. It was after all a pretty enjoyable read.

Yeah, having four judges pretty much tells you whether or not your review speaks to people across the gambit of personalities out there.

I liked the review, and I think Suskie did, too, but Coarse was held up by typos and so was Jerec... who also didn't like the style.

Is it a bad review? Clearly the fact that two of four judges really liked it says that it isn't. However, did it have the mass appeal of some of the other reviews? Apparently not. I think the only review up there that everyone universally liked was Zig's review...

... but that doesn't count.
