    And Team Ico.

    I found his review hilarious, and I'm kinda surprised by the sheer number of people that don't understand the point to his reviews. To them I have a quest.

    1. Watch This: The Escapist : Video Galleries : Zero Punctuation : Super Smash Bros. Brawl

    2. And then watch this: The Escapist : Video Galleries : Zero Punctuation : Mailbag Showdown

    Now if you don't understand the whole point to Yahtzee's style after those two vids, then you never will.

    That's his shtick. Every one of his reviews is like this. You can regularly expect him to trash the more far-out aspects of any game, be it science fiction, horror, adventure, etc.

    That was hilarious. Especially the part about flying. :lolol 

    Shame he didn't mention the piss-poor leveling system in multiplayer.

    I like WFC but I also think ZP is pretty funny.

    Though I thought he would complain about it begin made by fans (High Moon) like in his Monkey Island review.

    Eh, Yahtzee's whole THING is hating everything. I'm sure he'd hate WFC no matter how good it is/was, so I'm cool with it. Quite frankly I'd be DISAPPOINTED if he liked it.

    *shrugs* I think in large part, most people are afraid to be unabashed about their fandom. I could write a thesis on why the simplicity and consistency of the characters and the story are strong points, and how the best way to convey morality in fiction is by keeping it as such.

    When you say things like "In before nerd rage", you're really saying "look at me, I'm above all this - I'm too cool for school. All you people who try to defend Transformers as legitimate are just geeks, and I'm an intellectual." And pardon me for just wondering, what's the point?

    I'm not criticizing you guys, like Foster and Twin Twist, who can't (or possibly can't admit to) taking any of it seriously enough to ever stand up and defend it; it just honestly and truly astonishes me. It really is beyond me why anyone would devote so much time and thought into a fandom which they have essentially no respect for. I'm not being a dick, I'm just saying, I wish I could understand such a disposition.

    I do agree on the point about the fliers not being able to look up. Fact of the matter is I enjoyed the game through.End of the day it's personal preference.
