Alright Corbie. I certainly agree that the written review itself is more important, but I always thought that the score should accurately reflect the review. If nothing else, it helps my tiny brain comprehend all the big words, more. :p
I jest. I always appreciate a well thought out and well written review. That's why I come here!

I don't mind people looking at the score, but some people are putting entirely too much stock in the actual number. The review is where you'll see what the game is about and many of the gameplay aspects and how they function. And in truth, I believe some just glance at the number and move on. I hope that's not the case, however. :)

@Corbie-Sadly,it is true.
I know this because I'm guilty of looking at just the review score sometimes,instead of the actual review myself. I'm sure other people do the same thing.

I guess we don't need to write reviews anymore then. Just put up a score and be done with it.

Well no, because then we'd be unable to chastise you guys for not matching the score given with the score suggested by the text and scoring guidelines.

I don't know about everyone else, but I do not need one less thing to complain about.

I use scores as guidelines when i read the review. Cuz then when the review says the game has this problem and the game is scored a 4 or sumthing then i know wow this must be a big problem and stuff like that. Sounds stupid, but the numbers do help me when i read the review.

What you should do is have a three dimensional thumb, and it points up/down according to how much you recommend the game.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

The ratings should be as follows:

Okay!

Meh.

Utter Crap!

I think that would really spell it out for people and help them with their purchases in a way they could appreciate whilst truly reflecting the quality of any given title.

"Because IGN gave Gears of War 2 a 9.5, and its not even a First Person Shooter"
I'd say that part of the problem is sometimes people read too much into reviews. Case and point:
