This is one of your strongest reviews in some time, polished and easy to read, with points that clearly build to make credible points I can appreciate as a reader. It feels to me like you had a lot more fun writing this one than you do writing the usual Kemco outings, It did feel a bit too long to me, but a lot of that probably comes down to my familiarity with the game. If I were someone who hadn't ever played the game for myself, I'm sure I would have been still more delighted by your vivid descriptions. So I don't really have any constructive criticism to offer here, because overall I think the review is great just as it is.

"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

It is a bit long, but you should have seen it before I trimmed it down! I think I cut out a few sentences, trimmed a few others and cut out 2 or 3 paragraphs. Every once in a while, a game comes along that I can't say enough about and this was one of those. I mean, out of fairness to my "friends" at Kemco, I had a lot more fun talking about this game than most that I've played. I came into it with this idea of how I wanted it to go and then, a few hundred words later, I realized it was going in a whole different direction and I didn't really have control any more. And it took a bit of work to get things manageable again.
