Although I do love writing, I will be the first to admit doing it correctly really isn't my strong point. I basically just write what I'm thinking at the time and don't consider it thoroughly. Looking back on the review, there are plenty of omissions that I should really go back on and change.
Firstly, the main reason why I wrote a review for the two games was because I realised that whenever I've looked at certain games on the eShop, there's very little information about them and although I'm tempted by them, I don't want to get burned. So I decided to take on the duty of reviewing them myself for those who were in a similar predicament as me.
Also I don't find assigning a numerical score to a review a good thing. Far too many people would just scroll straight to the bottom and ignore the rest of the review. What is in the review is the most important thing to help people decide. For example, a 7/10 for me might be a 4/10 or a 9/10 for someone else depending on what's in the game. Everybody has different tastes so I do my best to state the facts and some slight personal opinion which will help people decide for themselves what their score for the game would be. So thanks for siding with me on that!
Ah.. Yes, now you've brought up the perk thing which is my main omission. In the review I meant to mention that when you level up and add perks, they last only till the end out the particular level. People could have got that from what I did say, but I really should have made it crystal clear. Perma-perks are perks you can buy in the shop that last forever. Like you get 10% more health or something permanently. But there's only 3 or-so of these to buy.
About the Angry Birds comment, I could have gone into detail about why this is a good game in comparison but even I know that overly long pieces of text, especially reviews, can make the reader uninterested. Personally I thought the line would have made some people smile. I don't know many people that would defend Angry Birds to the hilt, I think most people are aware that it's an average game that's way more popular than it should be. If I'd have said it in the same regard with say... Halo? I would have thought twice and that definitely would have been fanboy baiting.
And the controls... I think everyone knows that controls completely on a touch screen can be total arse gravy. That's the main reason I didn't feel the need to justify the comment. And while the 3DS version does have it's occasional awkward moments, they are much better than playing with complete touch screen controls. I have this game on my Kindle Fire HD too so I have experienced it.
I bow to your literary knowledge, my friend. I will try to take on board your suggestions for future reviews. It will probably be handy if I proofread my writing before publishing too, but alas, my impatience gets the better of me. Maybe I should just hire you as an editor.
And yepp, that is Calcifer from Howl's Moving Castle.
