Never really agreed with the categorical style of game reviews, though it does make me a bit nostalgic. I like that you put your own spin on it and cover a more tailored rubric. Still, you could probably hack away at a few to only cover the most essential information. Keep dishing these out and this simplification will come naturally, I think.

Ah yes, the sectioned review was certainly par for the course when I was growing up and really heavy into games and reading reviews for them. I think that, opposite of most people nowadays, I try to focus on giving as comprehensive and fair of a review as possible rather than composing a fun, entertaining piece. Since I realize that I may write some dry stuff, I try to section it off so that whomever reads the review can skip to the parts they feel are the most important and get what they want out of what I wrote.

Anyways, that is the reasoning behind keeping a sectioned review...but honestly its probably just because that is what I was used to reading when I grew up and what I started off as using when I reviewed a fair bit of games way back in my youth. I appreciate the feed back, I will certainly try to cut some of the fluff down while keeping the substance.
