Well written, and a great shame not more people are buying SoW.

As the reviewer obliquely mentions; each time CA produce yet another TW title, each wins many awards, yet he wonders why. What is it exactly about the TW franchise that makes people buy it? What innovative features does it have that cause awards to be heaped upon it? Is it simple sales figures? Or is it the awards that make people buy it? Chicken or egg?
