Good review, and one where the ranting and raving was definitely held to a minimum while conveying the general negative drift.

Having recently played Wizardry 8, this sounds rather familiar:

… and some skills also require a certain degree of player dexterity. For instance, if the character tries to pick a lock, an interface window pops up displaying the tumblers of a lock, and the player must raise and lock each tumbler into place to swing a lock open, with more difficult lock obviously requiring more tumblers to be successfully circumvented.
Is this so common a game convention that, like the health bar, it isn't really plagiaristic, or is it a blatant rip-off?
Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
