Yahtzee's Pentagon

My guess is that there’ll be at most one reader who agrees with the headline, while everybody else needs some context. Now, once upon a time, in a small country known as Australia, there lived a certain Ben ‘Yahtzee’ Croshaw, who was and is mostly known for his cynical, amusing and not-safe-for-work (you’ve been warned) video game reviews. They’re called “Zero Punctuation”, and as you’d expect he hardly ever pauses while mocking a game. A good example to get started would be the following video (4:37 minutes), mainly because it explains the heading of this article (Note that some RSS readers don’t play videos, just go the main site then).

Tomb Raider Underworld

So, I’m through with the actual game, for which I already reviewed the demo, and I have to say that I liked it better than I’d have thought. Much better, in fact. It’s not perfect, but it’s nice enough that I feel bad for just critizing it all the time. So as an experiment, I’m only going to say nice things about it.
