excellent review marty, you should do them more often really enjoyable read, a bit on the short side though but so is the game so i suppose it fits!  :D
I took your advice and stuck it on my lovefilm rental list, god knows when they will send it me though.

Great review, JT.  Thanks for a good read.

Mafia II is on my list of games to buy ... when I find a good deal.   :)

Thanks guys, I was inspired by D-Fuzz's review of Singularity. I deliberately kept it short because I thought most people will already know if they are likely to want to play it or not, so I just thought I'd focus on any reasons not to. :) I guess I'm a "glass half empty" kind of guy :(

Some of that review is spot on (the dialogue is a bit "crap" in parts) but it's overly harsh. I enjoyed playing it, it was just too short!

Ha, ha, that's another reason why I kept it short, I know people get bored reading long reviews because that's exactly what happens to me. I hardly ever read the reviews in the magazines that go over more than a double page!!!

it all depends how you paragraph it, you should write in short paragraphs and keep each one about a unique object of the subject.

So you'd write a little about graphics, sound, gameplay and keep each short, witty and fluid.
