    Alpine Racer, while not being that great, is, I believe, one of the better games in its skiing/snowboarding category. I still wouldn't give it more than 7.

    ok i just checked, they are different. I guess the guy who reviewed VT was just really dumb.

    yes but when you say better games, how many are we talkin here? There are only a handful of skiing games anyways, so that is a bad statement.

    i dont really follow review sites, the numbers usually mean nothing. I like the kotaku review style, where they just point out the pros and cons, no number scores.

    dumb or just poor taste in gaming .... this guy said alpine is a must hv with a few additional levels?

    the vt reviewer did gve time crisis 6/10 .... slight above average ... he called vt retro and not relevant? hey, time crisis is not the latest gaming trend either ... is it?

    i know, that guy was really stupid.



    That last line just really pisses me off. What he's saying is that this game is bad because it is retro. That is the whole point dumbass! And even if it is, it has great controls (which he said were bad) and awesome graphics. Who cares that it doesnt have a menu, it is still a great and extremely fun game.

    exactly rocketman ...

    the whole idea is it recreated the whole battlezone experience down to the original menu screens but graphically enhanced!

    i think sites like this should have some qc with reviewers .... make sure theuy have enuff relevant gaming knowledge before letting them review a game like VT

    That score seems fairly generous

    I would have only given it a 2 out 5

    Ten scales leave too much room for every app too be good while not taking in account that there are smaller budgeted good games.

    2-4 out of five should be the range for any worth while app that has a review done on it.
