GA Review [ edit ]
This review is transcluded from Talk:Flight Unlimited/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.
Reviewer: Creating review page. Prime Blue ( talk) 12:28, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
(see GA review here for what the criteria are, and here for what they are not)
reasonably well written.
(prose): b (: MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists)
Prose: (1) The shocking thing first: a quick look over "Development" had me count some 50 direct quotes. Most of those will need to be reworked into regular prose or indirect quotes – so that'd be something to work on while I review the rest of the article. (2) Not too sure that "hoops" is enough of a standard English noun to be readily understandable. If I hadn't played , I don't think I would have known what you meant. Maybe something like "flying rings" would work better in the lead, and as an additional clarification in "Gameplay"? Pilotwings 64 MoS: "Navier-Stokes equations" needs an en dash (–) instead of a hyphen (-). Would also remove this from the lead, because it is not apparent to readers what it means just yet. The external link to the downloads is dead. It is
factually accurate and .
(references): b (citations to : reliable sources) c (: OR)
Both the live web and archived versions of
this source are blank white pages for me.
I don't know why; they work fine for me. Not sure how I could fix them. JimmyBlackwing ( talk) 14:13, 14 July 2011 (UTC) Article uses
reliable sources and contains no original research. It is
broad in its coverage.
(major aspects): b (focused):
All major topics of
WP:VG/GL covered without going into unnecessary detail. It follows the
neutral point of view policy
Fair representation without bias:
No personal analyses or opinions in the article.
No edit wars, etc.: It is illustrated by
, where possible and appropriate.
(images are tagged and non-free images have : fair use rationales) b (appropriate use with : suitable captions)
Okay, I definitely won't put all the FA-esque prose problems and suggestions here, because the list is seriously growing, and all those comments are far too nit-picky for a regular GA review. Not to mention that it would be confusing to review the article with all the changes. We'll have a separate peer review on that after I'm done with the GA review.
