Hey, maybe we should have a forum thread for all reviews of RE.

Here is one by TuxArena from... just yesterday, in fact! :D A very favourable review indeed, though the reviewer seems to have been greatly underwhelmed by the sounds in the game.

A review a sibling of mine wrote: ... latform=PC

It is a bit out of touch (it was written when v1.0 debuted), but it was largely a fair piece I believe at the time. I'd be curious to see how he might think jumping into v1.4.
