It may be a couple of years late, but I have to comment on this review. (I read it just now because this was dirt cheap in Gamestation and I wondered if it was as shallow as it looked)

This review really is beautifully written in places. Turns of phrase such as "the girl can only take the game so far, and she's been outfitted in a stagnant ensemble" and "Her twin blades handle the neverending melees, chopping fleshy chunks from hordes of bipedal lizards" lift this above even good reviews to give it a sort of artistic elegance. I'm very impressed.

'There would be tears and there would be strange laughter. Fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings. And dreams, and violence, and disenchantment.'
