Does this peaceful atmosphere conceal some dark secrets?

As a videogame reviewer I usually undertake some background research into the game I’m reviewing before I put pen to paper, especially if it’s a title which has been part of a series that I’m not overly familiar with.

This helps me to see the how the game has evolved over time and grants me with sufficient knowledge to be able to deliver a balanced appraisal of the latest title.
