Eurogamer - Dragon's Crown review

EG:Dragon's Crown is a brawler as archaic as the fantasies it draws upon. Designer George Kamitani made his name with Capcom's Dungeons & Dragons arcade series of the early 90s - games that took on the lineage of Final Fight and furnished it with deep-pocketed inventories and experience points. That lineage was rudely cut short not long after, but Kamitani's Vanillaware studio has worked in the face of the genre's decline ever since, first with Odin Sphere and later Muramasa. They're games as artfully drawn as they are mechanically banal, though, and Dragon's Crown carries on that limp tradition.

"The argument that the male characters are as objectified as the females doesn't really wash. Come back to me when the dwarf's balls are as big as Space Hoppers."

That's not objectification, that's just grotesque.

Reviewers who just can't get over themselves, tsk tsk tsk.

What? Who DOESN'T love basketball sized testicles? /s

Women and gay men tend to enjoy body structure the most with initial attraction, the same way a lot of men first notice breasts. So how are the characters not equal in representation?

The woman doesn't have a case of camel toe, so why should detractors of the argument that "the man is objectified too" expect the male character to have any genital modifications?

The fact that he wastes so much time retreading the controversy in his super-late review screams "White Knight"

Oh, and

What is this review, I don't even...How can you say that the interface is clunky, it's LEGITIMATELY just left and right (with a fast travel if you're too impatient to run 5 feet). Also, this is supposed to be a game review, review it as a game not as a statement to society regarding gender objectification. The game plays the same regardless of the sorceresses breast size. As for the narrator, he puts a good DnD feel into the adventure, and he can be turned off...just like how the reviewer for this game shoulda just turned it off and gave it to someone who knew what they were talking about.
