PR walkthrough: These review guides border on the epic

People are often surprised when I tell them about review guides. The very concept of such a thing existing is silly to many gamers. I usually throw review guides away, but I kept the ones for Disney Epic Mickey and Splatterhouse because, well ... look at them. 

Many of them are just black-and-white printouts stapled together, but these two recently released games went a step beyond for something that is, to be honest, a disposable PR tool that videogame reviewers really ought not to be using. 

Still, you can't deny the quality.
