In a magazine, something written purely for laughs might work because the writers have the attention of a captive audience; people are reading for entertainment and not so much for information. They're reading every page because they have nothing better to do. This is not a magazine; people won't read everything, and if someone actually wants information about NIS America's latest releases, thorough analysis is just a click away. More importantly, even if I were reading purely for pleasure, this review is not funny. I signed up for the sole purpose of pointing out this review's offensiveness. It's not offensive to my gaming tastes, as I neither played nor participated in developing the game, but it's offensive to anyone who cares about quality writing or has aspirations of their own. This review tells me nothing of importance about the game, and the attempts at humor are far too forced. Truly engaging people don't need to try so hard. Talented people are also perfectly capable of entertaining while they inform. After reading something at this low level, I would normally dismiss the site. Fortunately, since I was already familiar with GR, I assumed they had some good reason for hiring this Ben_Card fellow. His other reviews are actually not bad (I read Magna Carta 2 and Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny). Taken on its own, this review leads me to believe that Ben_Card hates RPGs and isn't willing to give games a fair shake. Based on his other reviews, those assumptions are obviously not true. That's why this review is a failure. For the record, some of Herman Melville's other books are actually better than Moby Dick.
