    First Look:

    The Games on the DVD: Same as the one you have provided with the SKOAR Magazine.....A bit disappointing.....Sounds as if you did it to fill up the space....

    Business Plan Deluxe CD: Dont think its of interest to people other than in business.

    Microsoft Monster Truck Madness 2 CD: No Comments for Now

    Ok , the mag contents are looking good.
    Microsoft Monster Truck Madness 2 & Business Plan Deluxe are of no use to me.
    rest is quite ok.

    Everything seems to be good. The game is as expected. Another from the madness series. BUT WHY THE HELL DIDN'T YOU PROVIDE A MOVIE! The Business Plan Deluxe could have been easily substituted by a movie which would have met everyone's interest.

    Microsoft Monster Truck Madness 2: I already have this worthless game (received as subscription gift from Digit).

    Business Plan Deluxe: I think it's of no use to maximum of us.

    DVD: Games, movies, eye candies look good but don't know how they will be in reality.

    CD: Not good except 2/3.

    Magazine: It's really good enough.

    Fast Track: Waiting for this.


    OVERALL: LACKS THE PUNCH EXPECTED FROM THIS 5th ANNIVERSARY ISSUE.
