I was really looking forward to a review by Jeff. I thought for the most part his Twilight Princess review was fair. I didn't agree with his opinion on adding voice acting and I think he should have focused on the pacing issues a bit more, but the rating was definitely fitting in my opinion; maybe even generous.
My next candidate for the review after Jeff would have been Alex. I liked his Phantom Hourglass review and love his writing in general.
A great way to get into a fighting game is start out playing against a friend. Learn the game together and then bring your game online and learn to adjust and adapt to different styles after you get a handle on moves, combos, projectiles, blocking, counters, etc.
