  • Logical Error in a Sentence

    From a game review at Gamespot.com:
    "Condition Zero's release is overshadowed by no fewer than three new technologically advanced, highly anticipated shooters, which all cast a harsh light on what is essentially a 6-year-old game--albeit a classic one"

    If Condition Zero's release is overshadowed then it cannot have harsh light cast on it at the same time, can it? The game is either in negative spotlight which brings out its imperfections, or it's hidden in a dark shadow cast by the imposing, superior products.

    "Artillery adds dignity to what would otherwise be a ugly brawl."
    --Frederick II, King of Prussia

    His/her point is that the game is overshadowed because of the harsh light cast on it by other superior shooters.
    "Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."

    – Associate Justice Louis D. Brandeis, Olmstead vs. United States.
