I'd prefer a SimEarth remake, being a geophysicist and all.

Yeah, double reviews! It'll help me forget that the Jaguars drafted a punter in the third round yesterday.

Game scores...and summaries like you put at the top, are the first and possibly only things I look at

(a) That's why they are at the top.

(b) The rest of my 1,500 to 2,000 words are sad.

I'm at a loss as to how your unorthodox 3-8 scoring scale could even be made to fit into Metacritic's percentile scoring scale.

I'd just do division: 2/8 = 25% score, 6/8 = 75% score (which I consider "good"), 5/8 = 63% (which I consider "OK"). I didn't bother putting 2's and 1's in the side description because (a) I rarely try to review games that bad and (b) they are so terrible they defy description.
For those who are curious, out of 793 reviews, I've awarded 10 2/8 scores and one 1/8 score.

The TRIBES forums group pretty much proved that as of 1.0.941.0 the Plasma Rifle is way OP

It is waaaaaaay OP.

word on the street is that Risen 2 sucks ass

I really need to get myself on Metacritic so I can bring that average down to where it belongs.

Hmm, seems you did get filtered... sorry, fixed now.

No problem. You are awesome!

2/8 for Risen 2? Ouch!

I really hate the combat, and the AI is poor, and the quests lack details, and the third-person view gets in the way, and it takes forever to level up. So, yeah, 2/8

Are my game review submissions hitting the spam folder again, Blue? I sent in A Valley Without Wind Sunday and Risen 2 yesterday.

That's interesting. Am I likely to ignore faults of the game if I'm a hardcore fan of a particular genre?

I think you're more likely to buy more games in a certain genre if you like the genre. For example, I gave Omegalodon a 5/8: if you like the idea of monsters smashing buildings in an online team-based battle, then it's $10 well spent. If you don't, then don't.
Hopefully, my reviews contain enough details, other than a silly score, so you can make an informed buying decision.

Maybe I'll check it out.

I would advise against it. See my posts in this thread.
