RON Review(s)
« on: 09 Jun 2009, 11:28 »
Hey,

I tried to fit this post somewhere else but couldn't decide on a suitable place for it hence the new thread. Am new to the whole RON thing by the way.  :)

In a blatant attempt to give some exposure to my review of RON: The Respossessor, I thought I'd suggest a thread (this one in fact) where people post reviews or links to reviews of RON games. Just an idea but reading them might help newcomers realise that there really is some substance to these games. I was unsure before I gave them a chance.

Anyway, just a thought. Have a read of the review if you feel so inclined.  ;D

RON: The Respossessor

I also plan to review another RON game in the near future which I enjoyed even more than this one.

Cheers,

JD

Just to point out that the Repossessor was updated at some point, so it isn't surprising that you would have thought it was newer than 2001.  ;D

Correct. The Repossessor was recompiled last year by Renegade Implementor to work with modern computers and to take advantage of the updated graphics that were kicking around, hence why it looks graphically superior to the other games at the time. A few others have undergone the same treatment, such as Paranormal Investigator and Monty on the Norm.

Also, the writeup on the catagories is accurate, nice one. All in all, an excellent review. There's a section on the RON website for articles, I would strongly recommend this as an addition, or as a link to your blog at the very least.

Right, have updated the review to include the info about The Repossessor being updated last year. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks very much! Have no problem with the review being used with a link to my blog. There doesn't appear to be an upload option on the RON site so I'm guessing it's up to the administrators to sort it out?

A review feature on the individual game pages would be a nice addition next time the site is updated.

And links to walkthroughs (not specifically mine ;-)  instead of readable from the page itself?

Wow.  It's been almost 9 years since I wrote that game!  Thanks for the blast from the past. :)

While we're on the subject of non-fiction articles, I would recommend providing links to the two writeups on the AdventureGamers site:
