- I loved this!
~Usually gives player lots of options and choices. Great atmosphere. Keeps goals clear and puts gameplay first. Fluid and intuitive controls. Difficulty is balanced and fun. Possibly quirky, usually blurs genres. Never had the urge to cheat.
- I really liked this.
~Nothing bad, but lacks replay value or suffers from genre saturation. Good sound design, gameplay, controls, atmosphere etc. Stands out, but doesn't stand out enough.
