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.

6/8: Buy it if you like the genre (C+)
5/8: Buy it if you really like the genre (C-)

That's interesting. Am I likely to ignore faults of the game if I'm a hardcore fan of a particular genre? I'm trying to think of an example where that applies to me - I really like flight sim games, but I don't think I could tolerate mediocre sims like the new MS Flight, no matter how starved I am for fresh content in the genre. I don't know - maybe that's just me.

To be fair to SOL, the dev team have done a lot of patching and have addressed a lot of stuff that people criticized in reviews. Take a look at the update notes on the Steam page.

It won't change review scores...but the game may be a lot more tolerable to play now. I'm currently holding off because I'm filled up on space sim games with Albion Prelude and Wing Commander Saga. I may get around to SOL eventually though.

If I remember right, totalbiscuit was not very kind, as were a few others that tried it from here.

For a casual space shooter on sale for 5 bucks, it doesn't look that bad.
Of course, after watching that video... one wouldn't go in with very high expectations.
