This was overall a great review, pickhut, one that let me get a feel for how the series has been doing and one that wound up with me glad to hear--and convinced--that it is back on the right track. Your introduction detailing the first 30 seconds of the game was a solid way to start your review, as well. The problem I had as I read is that this felt less polished than a lot of your previous reviews. There were grammatical errors throughout and a few awkward phrases and even some unfortunate typos, like when you used the adjective "inane" when I'm fairly certain you meant "insane." When you've had some time away from the review, you might want to come back and clean it up a bit because, aside from those few issues, this is an effective and very enjoyable review. Good job!

"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 on secret doors to another world

I actually meant to use the word inane. Though, looking back, it wasn't the best choice for that scenario. I was trying to avoid repeating certain words in the review, and noticed I hadn't used that yet. I guess 'absurd' is more fitting.

As for the review itself, I didn't notice anything glaring, other than stuff I purposely left in, but I will take a look at the review a few days from now to see if I missed something. I usually tend to have more problems with "longer" reviews since there's more stuff to keep track of. Thanks for reading, too. Glad you liked it even with your issues with it.
