*purr* I tell you, Day of the Tentacle is the GREATEST of all games ever created! I used to have it when I was little, but my brother (who's in collage now) lost the disks. And since it came with the computer, we didn't think we could buy it anywhere. Now I'm ordering it off the internet.

In the review of "Day of the Tentacle" you wrote under 'lows'(!): "The only drawback is that some of the puzzles are illogical and hard to figure out."
Well, I can't say that this is wrong. BUT (c'mon, we all just knew there would be at least one, didn't we) I don't think it belongs under 'lows'.
The puzzles and riddles in the game aren't always ment to be logical and should never - or at least not all of them - be easy to solve. Take a look at the game's story: A pink tentacle gets arms, turns megalomaniac and decides to try and take over the world. And that's just the outline.
Now tell me: Looking at the story, it's heroes and villains and the whole thing... would you expect to get far or anywhere at all with things like 'logic' or 'simple, one-dimensional conclusions'? Not really, right? So I guess I'd rather say that what you are holding up as a flaw, something to object or ?as you called it ?a "down", is more of a special; like some sort of tempting challenge for all three, mind, patience and persistence.
Now, before I conclude this email, an apt quotation:
It does not take sharp eyes to see the sun and the moon;
nor does it take sharp ears to hear the thunderclap.
Wisdom is not obvious.
You must see the subtle and notice the hidden to be victorious.
Sun Tzu

Thanks for listening (ehm, reading, that is).
