Comments[edit]

  • Is it reasonably well written?
  • Per WP:LEAD, the lead should summarize the article in an appropriate way according to the article size. Given the size of the article the lead is incredibly short
  • layout sections that are short should be merged to their parent, and short paragraphs should also be merged. There are several instances where there are one-paragraph sections and very short paragraphs
  • While it is well sourced, there is no indication that most of these sources pass reliable sources guidelines. Many a primary sources which are directly related to the project, and thus cannot be used to establish facts and notability, only to support it. Several more third-party reliable sources are needed.
  • Is it broad in its coverage?
  • The article provides excessive details per WP:GAMETRIVIA. Please see Halo 3 for a good example on what content is appropriate and what is too excessive in detail.
  • It seems to largely promote the game. The amount of detail, the lack of any real criticism in the Reception section, etc.
  • For that matter, I couldn't find any reliable media outlets in the Reception games that had reviewed the game, and only one that is questionably reliable
  • Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
  • The amount of images given seems excessive. Again, the detail feels far too complex. Between the text and images it reads more like a technical document.
  • Have these images been checked by an admin on Commons? I couldn't find any confirmation that the proper permissions had been given to make them freely available.

Unfortunately given the number of issues I can't pass this as a good article.
