Enrico Viglino: Review (video set)
An astounding 12+ hours of video on this game by Enrico Viglino, including an intro, review and detailed play-through. That's quite a bit to digest and I haven't been through it all. I generally feel that he goes on too long with these videos. But I'm starting to realize that Enrico may be the only reviewer left who will actually tell you what is not great about a game... and why. That's valuable information for someone who's considering shelling out cash.
