    <a href="http://www.elited.net/">ELiTeD</a> has tossed up their <A href="http://www.elited.net/reviews/oct03/lionheart.shtml">mini-review</A> of <A href="http://lionheart.blackisle.com">Lionheart</a>, basically saying it's tarnished the name of <A href="http://www.blackisle.com">Black Isle</a>. Here's a clip that's not about that:

    <blockquote>The interface is huge, taking up about 1/3 of the screen. Unfortunately, there is no key to hide it either. The auto map is a mini me of the larger map. It cannot be marked, and you have to memorize where everything is, because the map isn't going to tell you.</blockquote>
    <br>
    <br>
    Kind of makes you wonder why they never made that interface smaller, considering it's size has been questioned since the first screenshots of the title came out.

    F2. What kind of a reviewer is he, if he can't even read help or the manual?
    In fact, the game is playable in the F2 mode. I played the game up to reaching the Crypt, where I lost hope that I would find anything interesting beside h'n's.

    EDIT: 'superb music'? The guy must've thought that 15 mins of playing is enough to write a review.

    I'm curious, do the reviewers who secretly visit the Codex wonder what is this manual thing people speak of and attribute it almost divine powers like knowledge of hidden things (above mentioned F2 and such)?

    Speaking of Lionheart, I didn't make it past the Crypt either. It was almost painful to play at that point.
