This was an awesome review! But if you haven't beat the game (but have already bought it) I'd recommend to not read it until you are done. Still... man! This makes me soooo happy, and the reviewer clearly "got" the game =)
Another great review today (July 3) on Indie Gaming Magazine:http://www.indiegamemag.com/the-real-texas-review/
There was another really positive review on destructoid yesterday:http://www.destructoid.com/review-the-r ... 0375.phtml
There was also one on moonbooks.net:http://moonbooks.net/review/the-real-texas-review/
There's a German-language review here (the comments section HAS POETRY GOING ON! WHAT!? Are all German gaming sites this cool?):http://superlevel.de/spiele/the-real-texas
A Russian one here (Google translate says at one part, "Looks Cheezy but Taste Great" hahaha)http://gamin.ru/blog/reviews/8484
And the FIRST review I found which gave it 5/10 and said the humour writing was sophomoric is here:http://www.gamer.nl/review/330615/the-real-texas
(Disclaimer: I sure wasn't linking anybody to that first review but I don't really think it's fair, doesn't sound like they got very far either-- however, there IS a 3 page impassioned defence of the game in the comments section which warms the cockels of my heart!)
As a dev I definitely don't mind hearing what reviewers didn't like about the game! The nightmare mode reviewer had some trouble with combat, and I think the critique is valid (there is an item that might have changed his impressions, but the item itself really ought to be optional.)
A lot of people weren't so sure about the combat and there are still some things that could probably be fixed that I may still try to do (mainly, making so enemies cant jank you as soon as you enter the screen.) Anyhow those are my thoughts!
It's really cool reading reviews for the game. I should add that one reason probably that it took reviewers awhile to get the reviews out is that I didn't send prerelease versions or anything like that to anybody. Reviewing games I think must be a lot of work, even if fun, and also involve scheduling time in to get to the games you want to get to. So I really do appreciate all the in depth reviews that have come out the last few days.
