This review is proving awkward to write.
Please - step behind the curtain and I'll explain a little of the method. Reviews have to do lots of things but the highest objective - and the one that can transcend any other faults - is to have reading it make the reader feel a little like how the game does. Not just explain it, though that's clearly desirable too - but to actually transport the gamer into the fantasy of the game. Make the reader feel like the game made you feel.
So to make sure things are coming at you live, I have a quick burst at the game, then turn to Word with the serotonin still buzzing around my skull. Fresh from an imaginary world, to you.
