Grimrock mod reviews videos by LocalFire

Not sure if he made a thread for this yet, if so I missed it and thought I would give him a shout-out here.

LocalFire is doing a fantastic series of Grimrock Mod reviews called "Grim Review" (14 vids at the moment). Each review has a respectful, thorough, and informative approach. They are roughly 5 - 6 minutes long, in which time he highlights any of the unique aspects of that particular mod (or lack thereof), Story quality, how well the puzzles "work" within the theme, and takes into consideration whether it was an early mod or a more recent work. Overall I find it quite informative, entertaining, and fair. I would like to note that a review is one persons opinion,and not an end all judgement. He is fully versed in the workings of the Grimrock engine, and I think, a good selection to get info from if you're thinking about checking out a mod but "on the fence" about whether to invest the effort.

Anyway, Thank you LocalFire, I hope it turns into a succesful, full fledged series!

7 Kudos awarded!

Very nice videos.

Although not sure if it was my laptop being weird but it did seems like the sound was sometimes cutting of just before the end of a sentence.

Actually thats just me, I tend to stumble over words if forced to speak for any length of time, luckily I can edit out the sections where I freeze up in the middle of the sentence but the end not so much.

And Eye of the Dragon is on my list, its quite large and since I have to finish before I review it, it may be awhile. I will however be able to put out reviews for dungeons I've already finished as well as some short dungeons
