    Not a bad review, but the paragraphs are a bit long, and, sometimes, the writing's quality drops:

    "but what the hell, the Zelda series always represents!"
    "Nintendo hadnít yet gayed it up..."

    Oookay.

    7.5

    I'll go 6.

    Sometimes it's hard to tell what your review is going to look like before it's published, but those paragraphs are too long. I also don't think you should say things like, "I won't bore you with the now familiar story." You're a reviewer, that's your job. Your audience is people who have not played the game.

    Need I say more. It's simply the best game next to Super metroid and the other games that were the best on the system. If you don't have this game at all, You should deffinitly consider buying it.

    Just a reminder.

    You're rating the REVIEW. Not the game.

    Pros: Passionate writing, good wording.


    Cons: Run on sentences. No pictures.

    7/10 (Good)

    Could have been great, but it'll have to suffice merely being good.

    The language is certainly aimed at an older audience, which ranges from the clever ("the sweet, siren-like call of Zelda") to the ludicrous ("the fetters of the 8-bit world", "Nintendo hadn't yet gayed it up"). I'm glad the tone never got too pompous.

    I was a bit wary of reading this at first, since some of the paragraphs looked uncomfortably long. I'm glad to say that for whatever reason, they flowed better than I expected.

    I'll go 5.

    Good review but I don't much care for the "Nintendo hadn't yet gayed it up."

    There are much better ways to say that, and the shortsightedness that the sentence set forth rather turned me off from reading the rest of the review.
