Review of the Week, 10-16 April 2011

First Place

HonestGamer's Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition review (3DS)

A steady pair of hands (i.e. HG) with a steady review looking out thoroughly for the person who has just forked out for a 3DS and wants to do something with it. Also explains how the well-established Street Fighter mechanisms translate to this new environment.

Second Place

Suskie's Mass Effect 2: Arrival review (XBox 360)

Lean but efficient review for Bioware watchers. The game is assessed as being 'really boring'... Don't blame me, I'm just the messenger.

Third Place

JoeTheDestroyer's Vice: Project Doom review (NES)

This feels like a bit of a change of pace from prolific Joe. It could just be me, but the tone feels a little different than usual, and the style is more from the 'tour of the game' camp. It's lively and I like its final point.

Thanks, Bloomer. 'Grats to Jason.


You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.

That's the result I would give; Jason's review is his best of the year, and I've bigged it up elsewhere. Suskie's convinced me not to bother with Arrival (until, at least, it's on offer) and Joe seems to surprise me on a weekly basis. Congrats to all three and thanks to Bloomer for his prompt topic.


For us. For them. For you.

Wow, thanks! I almost didn't write this review and when it was done I wasn't sure that I should have. It seems I'm a horrible judge of my own work, lately in particular. Thanks for the comments and congrats to the others who placed!


"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

What Emp said.


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