Sometimes you read a review and may not agree with the score they gave. maybe a section after a review for user comments etc or maybe that is done here in the forums. Im just saying this because if one person rates a game low, there maybe people reading the review and making their mind up whether or not to buy a game based on it....

Hi hamer,

Unfortunately it isn't possible to add a comments box to a published review. That's why reviews are posted as a linked thread in the forum here, for members to discuss. thumbsup12 The Boomer Reviews forum is another way to post your personal opinions of a game and place your own grade as you see it. Reviews there get plenty of hits! yes

I'm sure this happens all the time. My reviews are based upon my experience of playing the game. It would be outrageously narcissistic of me to claim that my reviews have any objective merit as pieces of ludic criticism. smile12 (Read the Brainy Gamer or Leigh Alexander if that's what you're looking for)

Yes, game reviews on any site should be taken with a dose of salt, or caveat emptor (buyer beware), if you prefer. You find the sites or authors whose reviews you find helpful over time, and choose to avoid mine if you find you regularly disagree with me... and I'm just fine with that.

As for writing your own reviews; great, all power to your pen! Just make sure you tell us why you think a particular game is "great", rather than just stating your opinion. smile12

I will usually read reviews if and when they are available but I have to say they don't influence my "buy or not to buy" decision very much at all.

I tend to throw caution to the wind, risk everything, and just give a game a go !! lol12 lol12

Like Mad, I may read the reviews but I'm not usually influencend by them. Only maybe if it's a really "buggy" game.

First off I wasn't critisizing the game review as a whole. I thought it was very well done and appreciate the time taken to complete it. I just thought the game should have been ranked higher than a "b"...But yes i realize each one of us has a preference to games. I am not keen on Myst or Aura type games so if i were a reviewer I would certainly not do it justice.....Sorry if my comments came off as an attack on your review, quite the contrary.It is well done
Cheers cool

Movie critics always get rough time..why not game critics.. laugh
