Virtual Skipper 5 - 32nd America's Cup review

Wow, you should actually care about a boat racing game


  • To learn how to make your boat zoom
  • The patient pace
  • The tranquil atmosphere


  • How long it takes to learn
  • That this might be too tranquil
  • The lack of visual and audio zest

You%26rsquo;ve got a yacht, right? Because the extreme wealth we%26rsquo;ve acquired from typing stuff about video games has allowed us to purchase the fourth official GamesRadar Boat. So join us for our annual race: the first one to sail the circumference of Gangsta Party Island (that%26rsquo;s the new ditty in the Philippines we also just bought) wins a bottle of Hennessy, and a Wii.

But you won%26rsquo;t win. We%26rsquo;ve been practicing on Virtual Skipper 5, and this game taught us the way of the dinghy. We are true navigators. Next week, we%26rsquo;re so gonna dominate those bloomin%26rsquo; wankers at the Cambridge University Cruising Club.
