Re: Please Rate this Review: Renegade Ops

Good review Fidgety! I really relate to the part in which you admit to having to change to an easier difficulty, even though you are an experienced gamer. I did the exact same thing for Red Faction: Guerrilla with similar experiences of enjoying the game so much more after the switch was made.

I would end this sentence here, which I think still fits your writing style.
a game that, even by its title, assured me that it wouldn’t take me by surprise. Such assurance led me to believe that I would walk away from Renegade Ops having learned nothing. I was wrong. Renegade Ops taught me a lesson in humility.
That being said, not sure what to do with this part of the intro. Not sure this part is unneeded, but it detracts a little from a solid opening to your review. Maybe reword a little bit or even make it part of your second paragraph?
