Yes, I agree. This review feels more like a child not getting his toys. I found PQ:G as random as PQ. Did he actually play the game for more than a few minutes? Was it too complex for him to handle? The reviewer certainly gives off the same vibe one is getting used to over at GameSpot these days.
Sure, the game's not perfect (which is?) and there are some things in PQ:G that could have been done differently but for me it's a great game overall. Oh and personally I love the hacking minigame, though I think it could be a bit more rewarding.
What I don't get is why so many people seem to expect a straight sequel here. It's more like Wing Commander / Strike Commander, Star Wars / Ewoks, Police Quest / Space Quest / King's Quest or Oblivion / Fallout 3 (well, yes, okay, those are basically just different GUIs
). It always seemed to be more like a mature cousin than the younger brother.
On a side note, I found the following over at the official forums:
