    Aside from all of the 1 star reviews for lack of retina support, online multiplayer, or because the person wasn't able to download the game because of a network problem (having NOTHING to do with the game), what are some of the most facepalm worthy reviews you've seen in the app store?

    Looking through user reviews can be so embarrassing sometimes... I'm surprised developers have the patience to deal with all of the nitpicking and demands.

    There was a thread like this in the developer section at some point asking a similar question, wish I could find it cause there was some absolutely hilarious ones in there. But I can't find it some hopfully they share on here again!

    "omgz, I'd give u five stars for full multiplayer gaming" on Iron man 2.... Seriously, how would you even think multiplayer would be good for that game!?!?!

    Did anybody see my review for iDrop Dead: Flower Edition?

    I'm very surprised Apple approved that review. :D

    I'm surprised by a lot of the reviews Apple approves. Some of them even have personal attacks and profanity.

    What did your review say?

    Wow... That's what happens when you give 12 year olds the power to write reviews... There really should be some kind of a filter, word limit, stricter rules, or something on reviews.

    I was looking through the Texas Hold'em ones and there was one by PaintBallKilla00 something and here is the title and review, lol.

    Title: Black People
    Review: "I have a big dick."

    Just go to the Texas Hold'em Apple app and it's on one of the first 5-8 pages I think.

    Personally, I think the greatest review is on kyper because a man actually tries to impersonate me and saying he has the high score (Kyper of which I have the high score)

    I don't think they review the reviews due to the simple fact that I wrote a review of a game and it showed up just minutes later, is Apple now using profanity sensing robots now? knowing Steve Jobs, hell yeah.

    Yeah logically thinking about it, with all the apps out and all the reviews being made everywhere there is not near enough manpower to control it all. BOTS FTW!!

    Same here, a Forum is a good place to get good at English I'd say.

    Any review with emoticons are clearly not going to be reliable!
