Here's a review of DROD 4 by Edd Harwood of the gaming section of "The Digital Fix". (Thanks, Edd!)

http://gaming.thedigitalfix.com/content/id/820/drod-4-gunthro-and-the-epic-blunder.html

Edd says he was coming into the game as a newcomer, and the puzzles did seem accessible, but he wasn't overly impressed with the puzzle "recipe" somehow (compared to the other games in the series?). I'm wondering how far Edd was able to play into the game in the time he had.

Yeah, looking at Edd's progress, I see he tried out this hold using the CaravelNet functionality, which is good, since he gave a positive nod toward that aspect of the game.

He also said:
To me, puzzles are rather like Cornish Pasties

So I take his opinion with a pinch of salt

That was my first thought too. Why? Was it the 1/10 rating that caught one's eye? Or just a lot of "action" on the screen that made for a good screenshot?

Actually 1.2/10, but close enough!

The lowest rated hold we have.
