The Backseat Game Designer: The Rest of the Arcanum Review

This is the addendum to my Arcanum Review in which I put all my opinions that contain spoilers. If you haven't finished playing Arcanum yet, you don't want to read this page. Please go back to the regular review site, where I promise to tell you everything you need to decide whether or not to play this game without giving away any of its plot.

These Backseat Game Designers pages are primarily a place for me to put all my game commentary that was too revealing for the regular reviews, as well as a place to tell everyone exactly how *I* would have done the game so much better. Hey, who knows, maybe the game designer'll be Googling around for his game, read this page, and be inspired to put customizable action sprites into his next game. Ah, well, maybe it'll amuse my friends, anyway. Here's all the news about Arcanum that's fit to print, just not on the no-spoiler review site.
