Here are two new 3DS reviews.  I was very unhappy with Mario Golf, but Mario Party is not half bad.

Critic, I really like your reviews, but now that they are getting longer and longer, they really need paragraphs. I don't find it very appealing to read such large text areas in one piece on my computer screen.

Good reviews, there was one mistake on Mario Golf, you put "how to many a good golf game", which should be "make".

Thanks for pointing out the typo!

About the length, sorry these are kind of long, but I don't want to change my entire format.  The question is, am I going into two much detail?  Should I try to scale down the reviews or do you like the amount of content?

I personally like the longer reviews. In the past, when you have asked this very question it is always about half that like the longer format while the other half thinks you are going too long.

" By 2014, everyone knows how to make a good golf game - except the designers of Mario Golf World Tour"

Who were, of course, the developers of the original Hot Shots Golf.

"Of course"?  Did it say on the box "from the makers of Hot Shots Golf"?
How would you even know something like this?

Of course--it's Camelot Software Planning. Veterans of golf and...strategy RPGs. They used to make the Shining Force games. I'll admit, this is pretty common knowledge; I think that's what Jason was pointing out. On the other hand, this edition of Mario Golf is clearly subpar, so I'm behind the Critic's verdict.

Ditto the paragraph section.

It's fine when I have time to read it in one setting.  The problem comes when I'm distracted and need to look away from the screen.  Whether that's the wife says something, a work email comes in, or the phone rings, it's tough for me to pick back up in the middle of a wall of text.  

+1 vote for paragraphs for your longer reviews.

A few paragraph breaks might be good in all new reviews.  My problem is that the lines are so long, when I get done with one and have to move my eye back to the left, I mistakenly go to the wrong line. I end up reading the same one over again, or I skip two lines.  Not sure if paragraphs would help cure this.  I think the box of text needs to be a smaller width.  I have never had this issue on another site.
