Going through some of my old Zzap's and noticed an interesting point in Zzap Back re: On Court Tennis where GP & JR pretty much state Chris Anderson doctored their review comments to make it much more flattering and to give it a Sizzler.

Pretty bad and taking 'editorial control' a bit too far.

I wonder if there were any other examples of this later on after Chris?

Certainly a bit dodge! Hopefully just done because Chris thought it was a better game than the other two and not for other sinister evil reasons! ;-)

That's what I would hope - going through these early issues, quite a lot of letter's moaning about their favourable treatment and subsequent good reviews of Lucasfilm games as well.
