    It's becoming more and more frequent that people are using the app store reviews as a forum for hints, questions, and spoilers. It has totally gotten out of hand lately---> check the reviews for CSI:Miami or any of the room escape games.

    I am sure it has an impact on game sales, because if you read the reviews you'll have no reason to buy the game. And who wants to buy a game if you are hesitant to read the reviews? Classic Catch-22.

    I am surprised that developers aren't all up in arms about it...

    Yeah I thought there was policy on that I guess I was wrong. I havn't seen any reviews in a while on the app store, so I havn't noticed this, but that does really suck bad.

    Lol a review ruined the surprised plane in F.A.S.T even though I'm pretty sure that the SU-70 or F/A-22 can duke it out with the magical plane very easy. Not sure why it's included in a dogfighting game though

    Ok, so it's annoying, maybe frustrating, but disturbing? When I saw the title, I thought some anonymous millionaire was inviting devs to his mansion and slowly killing them while recording it live.

    Hmmm...somebody's been playing too many video games lately!
    On a serious note, though, I guess that would be ok, as long as the dev was Khalid Shaikh! ;)

    What you talking about I don't do this! This is non-sense! No one does this you keep quiet!

    rofl. Nice plan though.
