THIRD - PGA European Tour [GEN] VGC2000

I think this reviewís biggest drawback is that thereís some dissonance between the review itself and the score. A lot of the text talks about how the European Tour is just the previous game with some new courses slapped on, followed by a list of little complaints. All seem valid and have some back-up towards them, but it is a lot of complaining with a lot of the things you obviously feel work about the game omitted. Still, itís cool to see this game covered; it was a massive part of my multiplayer rotation back in the day.

SECOND - Event 0 [PC] Brian

Heavy props for that tagline; itís very clever,

What follows is a very interesting review, but one that seems to talk around the concept of the game, rather than talk about the game itself. Some of this obviously leads into the idea that Event 0 has a text based heart where youíre, basically, bargaining with an AI. Itís an interesting subject matter thatís obviously grabbed you, but you talk more about that than what you actually do. A lot of that is probably because E0 is a short game, which you also allude to.

FIRST - Avernum 2: Crystal Souls [DietPC] Overdrive

Good old Spiderweb; the last RPG refuge of the mac owner.

I remember the Escape for the Pit review with some fondness. I remember the list joke that you ripped straight from Chris Jericho, but finding it funny, anyway. And I like this review, too. Which is pretty evident as I gave it the win I guess.

I think the review is well organised, which means that, while you ramble, you ramble in the right direction. Establishing the previous game was important, because this is more or less a continuation of this, but it was also important to introduce the changes. The new party of cadets, the new race that ties into the main thrust of the quests, as well as echoing back to the ongoing way that serves through all of those games.

It was a long review that might benefit from some screenshots (Iíll see what I can find) but it never felt long because your enthusiasm for the subject made it interesting. Itís a very good review from you to start the year off.

For us. For them. For you.
