The way Al Lowe spoke of Magma Cum Laude is a bit unfair to the developers of the game. I would at least be a bit offended...
EMI at least resembled the earlier games as well as was an adventure game. You can't say the same about MCL.
And what Krazy and JHousequake said.

Nope. What makes you think we wouldn't have a reaction?

Huh? Do you think AGs will have a review of this game (which it won't)? If not what are you thinking?

Well, it's not an adventure game. But now when I think about it you actually have that unwritten policy to review non-adventure games that are successors to adventure games.
Also, when you say "reaction", do you mean a review or something else perhaps?

Hooray, Mattsius!! I'm so glad you picked up on my very precise wording to avoid the word "review".

I won't say more here, except to clarify that we'll be treating it as a non-adventure of interest to adventure gamers.
