I really wanted to get these two reviews out for Memorial Day, because these are two terrific titles ideal for the summer months.

Comments??

What exactly is your download icon a picture of? 

I would think that a simple "arrow pointing downwards" would be the best to use since it's so easily distinguishable on the internet.

Looks like a compact disc with a not allowed painted on it.

 

Luke's suggestion does make a lot more sense for distinguishing what's downloadable only.

Not sure how a arrow pointing downwards would signify that it was a download?

About Lego Pirates, what makes it better than most Lego games, critic?

I'm not sure how much more self explanatory the symbol can be.  I mean, the disk in a video game context obviously represents physical media.

Critic, if it weren't for you I wouldn't even know that there was a sequel to Hydro Thunder. But I'm very glad that I know. Hydro Thunder is one of my absolute favorite arcade games which makes me really happy that the sequel is good. I'm going to have to buy this one.

[/QUOTE]Maybe if you don't pc game I can understand but the downwards arrow has been the main logo used to signify downloads for over a decade.

With four movies, it's pretty long, and each stage has hidden areas that add to the replay value.  The stage design and graphics are the best I've seen in a Lego title.  Plus that new split-screen mechanism is pretty nifty.
