"Profession" by Isaac Asimov
It's a story about a society in which you're assigned jobs based on the structure of your brain, and how it can be 'educated'. It's a good story, with the moral being on free thought and being able to learn and innovate.

"It has some really great set pieces, some sweet effects, solid gameplay, an amazing interface and that's all."
Oh really, that's all!? Well damn, I much rather play and talk about something with dull sets, cheap effects, cruddy gameplay, and a confusing interface. What do you consider a good game if you seem to think that these don't bundle into a decent play?
I know the article praises the game as well, but really, that quote is the epitome of someone wanting to criticize something just for the sake of criticizing something!
