GameSpy promotes Geneforge 2. Who would have thought?

I don't know why, but GameSpy decided to post a very positive review of Geneforge 2 praising the gameplay and giving it 4/5 rating.
If you haven't tried one of Spiderweb Software's games yet (my condolences if this is the case), let me tell you about a guy with a vision for self-sufficiency and an elementary design philosophy that, since 1994, continues to reel in the skeptics and roll out believers. Someone big really ought to hire this Jeff Vogel guy. After all, he's making a living and bringing in accolades with technology that looks like it crawled out of a documentary on gaming relics.
What makes Geneforge 2 work is Spiderweb's familiarity with the same kind of mechanics that turned gaming series like Ultima and Wizardry into legends. The formula that Mr. Vogel and Co. have mastered here is, as before, how to combine fast-paced exploration with smart surprises that keep you guessing. Do yourself a favor and try this game, because as they say in Arkansas, "It's the gameplay, stupid."
Well, I couldn't have said it better myself: It's the gameplay, stupid!
