The fellows down at Cosmos Gaming were kind enough to review Gates of Troy. Here are some highlights from the review:
While I wouldn't mean to slam a reviewer, and the score was not so bad, here are some "Funny" outtakes from this review. Keep in mind not every review can be stellar, but occassionally a review will be very, very, funny for a variety of reasons.
Some of the things that weren’t historically accurate were kind of weird though, more specifically the fact that one of the factions is the Lesbians. I’d research it to make sure if it was real or not, but I think there’s a bit too much sifting to be done.
I suppose someone should inform our reviewer of the island of Lesbos, last I heard most famous for poetry (Sappho). Literature class in highschool FINALLY paid off!
Gates of Troy puts you in the shoes, and the aforementioned crotch straps, of the powerful Grecians.
While this line its self is very funny, the fact that the word "aforementioned" is used in the first sentence made me chuckle.
Even in this mediocre review, I am happy to say Gates of Troy scores an 8 out of 10 in both Gameplay and Replay Value, the two fields I think a game should score highest in.
I appreciate the work done by Cosmos Gaming and I really hope that this review has given everyone a chance to smile. I'd like to make sure everyone is aware that this is post is not a cheap shot at Cosmos Gaming, as I honestly DO enjoy reading their reviews and the site owner is a personal friend of mine. The review carried too many things in it that were simply too funny to pass up!
