Three stars, since everyone would five star this if it was made by Yahtzee.
It would have 5 stars if it were made by yahtzee, because then it would probably be GOOD, not this mumbled, unfunny garbage.
Other than his inability to speak without slurring, this really is much better than I would expect from a fan parody.
It's WAAAY too long and too nitpicky considering that the game in question is free, but I'll give it some credit for the "silent space deletion" Adobe Audition gag and the "don't taze me, bro" bit.
Submitted with the idea of this being as much a plug for the game itself as it is a (IMO kind of crappy---ZERO DICTION AM I RIGHT?!?!) spoof.
audio is completely intolerable.
What this proves is that people who say anyone can do what Yahtzee does are idiots. Talking like that without getting on people's nerves takes a certain type of inflection and voice which this kid defiantly does not have.

By the way, some of you may have seen this review someone did of Art of Theft parodying my style. I mentioned it in the FEAR review referencing a desire to possibly commit arson murder. Well, that guy also sent me the following email the other day:
If I were to be so bold as to assume that my YouTube tribute review of your new game "Trilby: The Art of Theft" deceptively titled "Some Punctuation" was the impetus for your threatening request at the end of last week's Zero Punctuation weekly review, I would humbly like to request that you do not set fire to my abode. Intercontinental arson aside, was it really so upsetting to you as to incite such rage? I meant no harm by it. It was created solely to entertain my friends on the Penny-Arcade.com forums. That was the only place I posted a link to it; I never fully intended for it to spread far enough for it to enter your ken. Besides its shoddy diction, mealy enunciation, weak humor, and wishy-washy fanboyism at the end, was there anything outstandingly upsetting about it? I do realize the horror of watching your creation quickly falling prey to imitators lacking a proper grasp of the stylistic intent of your originals, but at least it was not a step-by-step tutorial on producing cheap versions of the entertainment you are now paid to produce. I must admit, though, I have received a number of requests for such instructions (along with requests that I die for some reason). I do hope to hear from you soon!
Your obedient servant,
For the record, I never had a problem with the review. I thought it was pretty well done, although he obviously hadn't played the game past the first couple of heists, which undermined a lot of his points. What I do have a problem with is people (for this happens surprisingly often) who think the best way to impress me is to talk at me like we're at a fucking renaissance faire. I mean, christ, "enter your ken"? What am I, a visitor from the magical kingdom of Faggotry?
I am one-starring this video in honor of this exchange.
Not bad, other than the factual errors. Right-on about the single-pixel animations in your peripheral vision.
....OK, but Trilby is a fun little game....just sayin'....

no i will not give it a chance just take it away
you're all Royalist fags. this was awesome.
Pretty good for a fan attempt. But Jee-zus, kid, get someone else to do the voice work.
Jesus Christ, guys, lighten up. It was cute and light-hearted, and I'm sure the Lord High Chancellor of Snark doesn't need his devoted legions defending his honor on every internet backwater.
