I think my tone indicated I hated the game, and that's hopefully not the way it's coming across. I was just disappointed. I hardly ever buy games for myself, much less full price ones that are nearly $70, so for me it was a bit of a disappointment. Not that I'd NOT ever go back to play it again - on the contrary.

I feel after reading your review that you emphasized many of the game's attributes as you saw them, in addition to your disappointment at it's narrow focus. I think someone who does not already have a preconceived notion of Picket Duty's gameplay will still find many points of interest in it but with foreknowledge of the game's actual scope thanks to your review.

I thought you wrote a fair, interesting and intelligent review. 8) You said what you liked about the game, and what you didn't.

That you felt some disappointment... that's fine - you said why. I've been there with some games too. What is difficult is when you personally dislike a game, but realise that some people might just love it for the reasons you don't - it can be hard to find the right words to convey that without saying (worst case) that the game is a stinker, and still remain true to your own opinion. I think you found a fair balance.

Good review. :)
