I'm really not interested in self-indulgent & opinionated views from a reviewer who can't leave them out & can't just get on with using their excellent writing skills to present the pros & cons of a game in balance!
Well, you know, reviews are
opinions and subjective by their very nature.
It is the player's experience of the game
you get in a review.
I can't really figure out why you called this review "self-indulgent".
In what way?
Could it be that he was so hot because he had expected so much more than he evidently got?
You are predisposed to like Moebius from the sound of things.
From my encounter with the demo (which I didn't finish because it was really so bad, IMO) I am not.
We all have our outlooks on things, our opinionated views.
From what I saw in the demo, mine just happens to be closer to John Walker's.
And now I'm off to play through Part 1 of The Serpent's Curse again, so I can get on with Part 2 and see if Revolution is going to bring it off after a rather tepid (IMO) start.
I backed them because I thought they could create a fun and worthy sequel to BS 1 and 2.
I hope they did and I'll know before too long.
