This seems kind of fun, but with so many games both new and old in my backlog, I don't have much interest in playing it.

Maybe it's just you and I, but the relentless pace of the game releases lately has forced me to raise the standards of quality for what I'll spend time on by quite a large margin. That sucks for the guys making decent, but not astounding games like this, but I think overall it's a good thing.

i used to love choplifter on the sega master system, i'm surprised this is only getting average reviews. i hope they have the classic hidden within this game.

Well, technically, a 7.5 / 10 is a well above average review. Don't mean to sound like a snob, but I thought I'd clarify that.

that's ok, in which case i'd like to clarify that i wasn't talking about THIS review score specifically as i did say ..."getting average reviews." don't mean to sound like a snob, but i thought i'd clarify THAT. ;p

A valid point. But really two of the only average scores I've seen the game get are from GameSpot (5.5 / 10) and OXM (5 / 10). Most other reviewers have given it a 7, 7.5, or B score. IGN actually gave it a a high 8 / 10.

well it's evident that your definition of "average" is different than mine, as anything below an 8 is considered average in my book based on the public school grading that anything below an 80 is a C...

and taking under consideration that your opinion is based on the scores "you've seen" just as mine is based on the ones i've seen, which if you take a glance on the metacritic site the scores do indeed average an average rating... nevertheless i will be downloading the demo tonight and see if it is worth purchasing or not.
