Less chance of making an error when writing the test
Easier to reuse across different game platforms
May get run different ways by different testers
Does not specify “Invalid controls�?
Does not draw tester's attention to what item to check at each step
A developer may have trouble reproducing a defect found this way
May not get repeated exactly the same way by another tester
Note that the 4 th advantage and disadvantage are the same. By running it differently,
someone else could find a defect that didn't show up the first time. But running it
differently each time, a tester could miss a defect that was the target of the original

you gain a new ability (skill, level, job, unlocked item, etc.), when you set the selling price
of an item.
