    Note: I have not red the review, I just looked at the score in the the attached image.
    I agree. 4 out of 5 stars on features is too high IMO. Somewhere between 2 and 3 sounds more realistic to me.

    Not at all. Not much about the new release interests me so it should be at least someone interested in testing the stability, reliability or performance of the new features yet at the same time have some reasonable experience in other 3D apps to know how it fares in general to other implementations which most of the new features of 2018 exist in one form or another in most of the other 3D apps out there.

    Nice and positive review, and I think the scoring seems spot on.
    I'm really enjoying using 2018, and there are features and bug fixes for everyone.
    Will have a read of this when I get into the office.

    so not the application but the review and the reviewer interests you ?

    I didn't say the application, I said the latest release doesn't interest me.

    Anybody who is not a fanboy and not someone who just got a job recently. Lol
    Hrgiger actually has stopped being a fanboy so he could review it.
    And paper magazine? People still buy magazines?
    Youtube it.

    Good to see a review. I still subscribe to 3D World, but I must have missed their review...

    Why do you still use Lightwave? It would be nice to see you post some work :-)

    Do you say that to everyone? Or only those that says something you disagree with? Probably the latter, right?
    And 4 out of 5 on features.....I would place Maya and Houdini at the top, but I would not give any app 5 so THEY would be 4 or 4,5.....and LW has SOME cathing up to do.

    You seem to conveniently disregard the extraordinarily high price / subs of these apps relative to Lightwave.
    Plus you didn’t answer my questions...
