Netjak berates ToEE

Netjak has coughed up their review, apparently written by a moron, of Temple of Elemental Evil. I think this speaks for itself:

The game balance also leaves much to be desired. In my first game, for example, I needed to rest for seven days to heal up. Trying to rest, I was constantly being attacked, with each battle gaining experience points, and by the time I finally healed, my characters were three levels stronger than what the designers intended for me to be this early in the game. It turned out that I was resting on a monster spawning point, a feature that is not only neglected by the documentation, but which also doesn?t check whether the player is present. The end result of all this was that I was able to go through the rest of the game with relative ease. I am aware that non-linear games like this one will offer opportunities to gain cheap experience points, but being limited to only ten levels, the player?s characters should be kept under tighter control by the developers.

Did we miss the fact the little tent icon was yellow? I see we also failed to read PAGE 16, where it carefully explains the resting function and what that little yellow tent means. So, yes, bumblewit, it is in the manual!

Spotted this on the official ToEE forum.
