I do like this review. You got the main points of the concept out in the open, and detailed the scary aspects of the game as well. My only minor issue is that you mention that it's like Resident Evil at least three times, which got a little repetitive in the (as you already stated) short review. Also, because I'm honestly curious, and you are already going to be adding to it, how is the gunplay? Are the guns fun to shoot? Any different, out-of-the-ordinary ones?

Thank you for liking my review. And i am glad i hit the nail on the picture when it came to concept and detail. I will be adding to it, i feel there is more space for more points. And i am sorry it became a little repetitive, never good when that happens.

Loved this game when I was a kid, it was the coolest thing.

Anyways,I'd also say you made the Resident Evil comparison a few too many times (notice your second paragraph, for example). And what if the reader is unfamiliar with the first Resident Evil games? Then this piece may not be descriptive enough, and I know you're very capable of making good descriptions.

Just stuff to think about, keep'em coming.

Wow, Alk! I was shocked to get to the end of the review and realize you'd written this! It's a totally matured style and it really works! This is easily your best review and my favorite so far. I was drawn in by the snippet you choose for your tagline and then kept reading straight through.

I didn't mind the Resident Evil comparisons as much as everyone else, I actually like them because they immediately painted a picture of the game in my mind. I would suggest augmenting them with a one or two paragraph example of a situation straight from the game. In that description, you should cover one scene of the game and how the game controlled during it. Was it a scary scene? Tell us why! Did it control like Resident Evil with a fixed camera angle and having to aim at enemies off screen? Tell us that! And speaking of aiming, was it better to run past enemies or to shoot at them? Tell us!

Good to see someone making so much progress so quickly.


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."
