Excellent game though Requiem, I can't think of many others that included time travel, flying, blood boiling, wantom violence, a dystopian 1984 future civilisation, Railguns, the most out-of-place moment of bad language in a game ever AND Lucifer himself, all in one game! Result!
And a shadow system which looked as good as UE3's, and the game's 10 years old.

I DO think it was a good review of the game. However, I really wish that someone proof read the whole review as the semantical errors were abundant. Like "You’ve got" instead of "you have".

Firstly, we do proof read. First I do it but, since I know what I'm saying already, I often miss things. That's when Tim does his edit and proof read.
Secondly, it isn't a semantical arguement. Semantics is the study of the meaning of words, this is a stylistics choice to convey the same meaning in a more conversational manner so it would be a stylistical error if anything. But it still isn't. "You've got" is the compacted version of "You have got". I have (or rather, I've) written reviews in the past which have been in the full grammar from a prescriptivist approach but it always ends up reading like an essay rather than a review. That could work on some sites, but not here where the writers are often close to (if not adopted out of) the community of readers.
