I had a lot of fun reading this review. It made me want to toss my copy of Red Dead Revolver out and pick this up.

this is bad:

as governments are wont to do, so kidnap his fledgling family and hold them ransom.

See it?

This is good:

As such we join him, and his rugged stubble beard and manly collection of facial scars...

Hell yeah.

Alright, my night of fun is over. Back to school and anonymity. At least until results are posted.

Joe: Redemption is such a huge improvement on the last game in every way possible, its hard to believe they're connected.

Zipp: I dont see much wrong there! Either way, Im loathe to make edits until after the results are in. Ill take a harder look at the entire review (that was written and proofed at around 3am) after all is said and done.

Many thanks both for reading.

You fail to sound manly proofing at 3am when I stayed up two and a half hours later!

In all seriousness, great review. I'm sure there are others out there, but I'm the only one I know that dislikes this game, which bums me out. This makes me briefly question whether my opinion is totally wrong. Then I remember how bloody stupid watching the same dumb skinning animation was over and over again.

I used to hate the animation, but I now think the entire thing was a set up to scare the shit out of you when, at the end, youre tricked into skinning a random dead deer when the mouantin cat that you had brefly scared away (off screen) comes back and mauls you mid-animation. It was the most I'd ever jumped in a game.

I noticed you sub the screens around 2am and figured that the review would shortly follow, so good job on hanging in there and getting something up. the downshot is I'll expect much more of the same in 2011.

You should know, you have now been added to the list of people I despise for making me spend money when I don't have it... Red Dead is on its way...

You'll thank me for it.

You still owe me a Broken Sword playthrough, too! Don't think sloping off will get you out of it.

Around the time I reviewed the Director's Cut. Might still be in the feedback thread.

EmP, I always enjoy your writing style. Stop making it so hard to do RotW!

Oh right, this was the one that was ported to the DS but was far superior on the PC? I'll have to look up the thread, but I probably said something to the effect of "I don't own a PC but I wish I did... sort've."

Ha, I see I didn't say such a thing! I also see that there is s PSX version. This conversation somehow was erased from my memory. Now I feel even MORE obligated to hunt it down. Is it on PSN, I wonder...?
