I can't help but feel your reviews are going through some rant generator first.

EDIT: Okay, I'll be helpful. Tone yourself down on the flowery adjectives and talk about what the game is actually doing. I have no idea what's going on in this review, other than you REALLY enjoyed the game. I've noticed with all your 9 and 10 scoring reviews that you can't help but lose yourself in a bunch of poetry.

I feel that i have toned down on ''Flowery Adjectives'' in this review. There is no rant involved. I will not post another game review on this site if i keep receiving backlash that i don't deserve. And i am a poet, i have had three poetry books published, my next poetry book War Eyes is under development. So what if like to add a little diversity and poetic vibes to my reviews, i don't think i am doing anything wrong.

I apologize for coming off that way, I have nothing against the way you write, it's just as a review for a consumer, I'm saying I honestly felt left out by your style.

You can take it or leave it, ignore it or consider it. Don't stop posting here because of some criticism.

A lot of my stuff is pretty easy to rip into as well, so my opinion isn't worth much.

I do like your poetic style, and I do say any site would benefit from having a range of writing styles. My only complaint is that I didn't get a good enough feel for what the game is like. I came away wanting more details about the game and its mechanics. What are the shooting scenes like? How's the AI? I know this game is more about narrative than mechanics, but I still think the mechanics do have a place.

Apart from that and some small errors, I enjoyed this review. I like your enthusiastic voice--something that I feel is essential to a high-praise review--and I'd like to see you continue here.

I will continue to post here. I have taken on board what you are saying. I am more used to writing music reviews and poetry, i only started writing games reviews a few months Maybe i am just new the structure. I will add a little more dimension to my reviews, i will describe points better.

I will get a hold of myself, and i will write better, with more precision and depth.
