Review of the Week, 4-10 March 2012

First Place

Suskie's Resident Evil 4 HD review (Xbox 360)

An excellent review of Resident Evil Four written with the hindsight benefits of seven years passing, and which moves with great focus from one element to the next. Its arrival also raises the questions – how are the reviews of the pending flood of HD conversions of past games going to be written? Where can or should they put their emphases on what to talk about? Suskie's review touches on the HD technical quality near the end, and is essentially a review of Resident Evil 4 itself.

Second Place

Emp's Alan Wake's American Nightmare review (Xbox 360)

A cheerful review of the less serious second instalment of Alan Wake, and one kind enough to the developers to acknowledge their possible aims in making the changes they have made as they switched development venues.

Third Place

darketernal's Syndicate review (PC)

… Whereas darketernal's Syndicate review zeros in on the near total lack of spiritual connection between the original Syndicate and this new version. If every element that made the original game what it was is gone, what's the point? - or at least, has anyone thought intelligently about what's going to replace those elements? The tech paragraphs which round the review out seem a little obligatory after the killer first half, but it's not like the source material was hugely inspiring.

Thanks a lot, Bloomer. I'm flattered that you enjoyed it. Unless, of course, my reverse psychology tactic has succeeded.

Congrats to EmP and DE. I enjoyed both of their reviews. I know I always say that, but I'm bad about leaving feedback so I might as well say it here.

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

I could have sworn I replied to this a while ago. I remember the typing and the fake humility. Curious.

Thanks for the spot, Bloomer. Props to DE for showing up casually and staking a spot, and to Suskie for knocking OD off the top of the league. That'll learn him.

For us. For them. For you.
