    Why not just provide a direct link?

    Not much there. It's a starred "review", so I guess that means they actually played it. Maybe.

    ...just thought it would be cool to see it on the -main page- for the one and only time that will ever happen -- that's all.

    Thanks for the -real- link!

    I'm sure it's not a review.. the language doesn't sound like it was played, but merely read about. Besides, if he (the writer) had played it, he wouldn't have had a screen shot of Bafford's library as being from DS!

    lol the good ol Baffords screenshot.
    Still remember seeing it on the back of TDP box.

    It is a bit weird they put that picture there but hey...it's neat that they mentioned it.

    Silly bastards.
    I have poked them in the eye about it.

    Let's see if they change it.
    ($10 says they wouldn't know how if one of us told them)

    and the Cnn thingie is the same as the usa today one.
    I hate it when people give short reviews.
    especially when it comes from large media corporations.

    Ah, but CNN.com does have an editorial page, to correct mistakes: http://www.cnn.com/feedback/forms/form6.html?1
    Perhaps we should all submit corrections about the caption, letting them know that they can't just let this one go?

    The similarities between the various reviews almost certainly means that these are press pack write ups. A gaming company, movie studio, record label...whatever, sends the magazine a big envelope with pictures, background, contacts, even prewritten releases (reviews). The Arts Editor tweeks it a bit and goes with it. Like most situations, laziness wins over every time. Hey, at least it's better than nothing, right?

    I prefer nothing, as opposed to BS/prefabed "reviews" set up by the publisher.
