PC Powerplay

The German gaming magazine PC Powerplay gave the game an unfavourable review (issue 12/2004) and recommended its competitor Ski Alpin 2005. According to the magazine's own statements in issue 12/2006, publisher JoWooD reacted very annoyed and claimed redemption. They sent the magazine (and the magazines Games Aktuell, OPM and Play the Playstation from the same publisher) an excel file which detailed about which JoWooD games they should report in the next months; including number of pages and cover stories.
