Virtual Skipper 5: 32nd America's Cup - The Game review (PC)

  • Excerpt: is a sailboat racing simulation, and a sailboat racing simulation by its very nature is pretty much the exact opposite of the white knuckle speed-thrill games (for comparison, the top speed I've seen in this game is around 45 km/h. Noticably slower than 2,000).

  • Excerpt: Simplicity seems to be Nintendo’s strong suit these days. Nintendo’s latest, Kirby Air Ride, is quite frankly the epitome of simple. HAL Laboratory obviously holds the same philosophy, since they were the ones who actually developed this title. I’m a person who likes things simple, however, there is a major difference between Kindergarten simple and college graduate simple.

  • Conclusion: Kirby's Air Ride features some of the greatest videogame music the industry has seen in a long while. Classic Kirby tunes that every fan of the franchise loves make a triumphant return in Air Ride, and they are even touched up a bit with somewhat of a remix feel. Don’t worry though, all of the tunes are still very similar to their originals. It was surprising to see the perfect amount of old and new school so that everyone is happy.

  • Pros: Colorful, cheery visuals and audio capture Kirby's world nicely., Fun multiplayer modes, particularly with gamers of varying skill levels, Good control, course design, and sense of speed, One-button control scheme works well and is easy to learn., Plenty of extras to unlock
  • Cons: A few more courses would have been nice., One-button control scheme works for many, but not all., Unlocking all the extras can be time-consuming.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Kirby Air Ride is a very love-or-hate affair. You're going to hail it game of the year or worst game ever. If you think you'll like it you probably will, if you're unsure give it a rent. This game certainly kept us occupied.
