I really like it but it's an odd sequel, it ditches some things (no more throwing :() and has some pretty jarring gameplay shifts at times (has mini-levels based off After Burner, Thunder Blade and Flicky of all things). Yet in other ways it's something of a remake, there's a level almost exactly like the tunnel in the original complete with Seven Force at the end, but again with some pretty wildly different mechanics.

Still a ton of fun and probably the best visuals on the system for my money, some of the animation+effects are a feat to behold. In that regard, I remember it was a great showcase for the Game Boy Micro's screen.

Here is my mini review for Tomb Raider: Curse of the Sword. I was extremely tempted to just write 'gooseberry fool' as a review, but I thought I'd best not, although Errkal said that it would have been ok with him to do so :lol:

Anyone who reads it, could you let me know what you think? I want to improve and make these little things better all the time, so feedback is greatly appreciated.

Had a read Pedz and it's ok. There's some grammar and spelling issues, several times you use commas where it would be better beginning a new sentence.
To me, it appears that you're writing as you might speak, and it could probably be broken down and shortened. For instance, this section:
"The sound wasn’t much better. It starts off with this pretty good tune in the title sequence and then you have a cut scene with some more appropriate music, then you get to the level and no music, you just get sound effects of Lara running and that’s about it, and the sound effects of her running aren’t great either."
I would rewrite as:
"The sound wasn't much better. The game's title sequence contains some good music, and so does a subsequent cutscene. However, once you're in the levels, the music is cut and all that remains are some basic sound effects, such as Lara running."

But then again, I don't write for a living, so that's just my opinion!

Personally I like that. It is a think I kind of want in view that it is from the forumite in things like this so it if you came to the forum it wouldn't be a different way of writing if that makes sense.

It's sort of up to the author in my eyes wether to go "proper" or more informal.

Basically I want to avoid getting to a thing where it doesn't really matter who writes the post it all reads the same with a sort of site wide language and feel.
