View Full Version : RT: Idiotic Wargamer Review
March 17th, 2005, 12:06 PM
Once again, Aaron McKenna flouts his juvenile approach to all things gaming in his shallow, undirected, misleading review of Raging Tigers.
I haven't played RT but I know Capt Proctor's work and know the review is utterly ridiculous. I just bought RT and will try to get a review of it up on Armchair General or try to get a counter-review up on Wargamer.
If anybody else has ant idea's where I should post a rebuttal. let me know.

I correct myself: I know MAJOR Proccter's work. Congratulations and the promotion was long overdue. I'm been reviewing your stuff for years and you've always been a captain.

Thanks for the kind words AND the congratulations.
I have started a bit of a grass-roots campaign to get Wargamer.com to take you up on your generous offer:

I'm also a fan of Pat's wargames,e.g. BCT,ATF,& RT.The bad review was ridiculous.The reviewer need to be aware a game of this magnitude takes time.
I'm looking forward for the new releases.
Great job, Pat...

The reviewer, with whom I've crossed swords before, comes from the "kewl doodz" school of gaming and writing. I also detect a whiff of anti-Americanism in him. He served with British forces in Desert Storm and took friendly fire from an ANG A-10. He won't get over it.

He does know I'm not in the air force, right http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif
I guess I'm lucky it was *just* a bad review http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif

BCT Commander was great game. Have not seen Raging Tiger but is there more in the works? MAybe some more hypoethetical?

I don't know of any "hypothetical" in the works. My new game will have two scenarios set in 2009 between Israel and Syria and Israel and Jordan,...and just like other ATF engine games, you will have a large database and flexibility to create your own scenarios with assistance from the developers if needed and to share with the community!
