Favourite review for me would be the tragedy, still makes me crack up.
Cat bombz comes in second
One day comes in third. Mr Prophet writes well.
The calling comes in fourth because it's so damn precise and accurate without being a 20 page essay. It says what needed to be said with as few words as necessary.

Fav reviewer for me is a hard choice between Mr Prophet and Hellscrag, I'll get back to you on that :P

If I could be arsed to work out all the reviewers past and present I'd wack a poll in here, but cbf and i'm aware it's a slightly touchy subject.

Wow I'm just finding this thread now almost a month later.

I like that everyone has their own approach to the reviews and how they go about them. I always appreciated Mike's method in particular simply for always being consistant in the high quality of his words and how he always was very clear on merits and weakness, to a point that the map's standard was irrefutable after reading his piece.

I do think my earliest reviews for the site lack a bit of finese. I've gotten better at it with practice. Much prefer to write reviews for SP maps than MP. Hopefully I can write some more in the future.

I definitely prefer the reviews that go more in detail.

My favourite reviews are the ones with a bit of humour in them, because it makes them so much more interesting to read. I think Prophet's reviews are best for this but I'm really not sure who wrote what.

Ignore list. Do it to it.

Also I like how he "prefers" everything. :P

On topic: I like Scrag's reviews the best. He set a really high bar. His reviews are well-crafted, thoughtful, and focus on the work as a whole rather than putting too much emphasis on any one category, and he doesn't go into too much detail to the point of spoiling things. Less is more, and he knew how to put that axiom to good use.

Man I miss writing my super-long reviews. I should go back to it.
(i.e. TCO when it's released)

Looking at the list I forgot how much stuff I reviewed. Thought the Bob one was made by MMAN.
