Got posted too early but someone archived it in imgur.

No major reveals; mostly just goes "Fates bad" while talking about the fluff and barely talking about the gameplay (with the only real tidbit given being that they felt Normal was too easy-- keep in mind they also said they rushed the game).

Also talks up the writing (but then again, every reviewer did the same thing for Fates)-- mentions that there are multiple major choices but that things get "sidetracked towards the end" (probably because you've gotta kill a dragon god thing).

Says their playthrough took them 45 hours but that their next one will likely take them 60 hours. Also mentioned cutscenes being locked at 24 FPS and their being fluctuating resolution (as if the game wasn't already subpar graphically).

Also mentions that some sided dialogue ended up feeling out of place and tone-deaf, because "a character who I'm pretty sure you can't possibly save died but they kept talking about them like they were alive."

Now for some actual spoilery thoughts:
As we've seen timeskip Lysithea, I don't think that's talking about her. If it's any of the students, it's Marianne.
All of Thani's talks about Crest experimentation and stuff effecting Lysithea? Well, Marianne is an incredibly passive individual who's adopted and has a Crest that has no name and is on Edelgard's Axe.

Thani also mixed up several names prior, mixing up Cyril and Seteth I wanna say?

Hence "review" in quotation marks in the title.

It has a few new tidbits at least.

The tidbits will ruin this game if the Unavoidable death Is true

Hence why I also warned about "some spoilers" and blacked out my conjecture in regards to the seemingly unavoidable death.

It's not a review, it's a preview.

I think the reviewer just confirmed the "4th path thing" when they mention that they missed a part of the story of the house they chose. And it's obvious about what house they are talking about
