I'm finding that about two thirds of the reviews with stars are terribly biased, in a negative or positive sense. For example, Zelda: Ocarina of Time has a starred review giving it 3/10 written by someone horribly misinformed; he complains that Nintendo is unoriginal by adding a new villain with four extra letters at the end of his name, when, in fact, it is the same villain.

We need a litmus test to determine what *truly* deserves a star, and what doesn't. For example, if anything I've ever written gets a star, then someone has failed. There ya go.

I just noticed I still have a good number of unstarred reviews. Obviously, this system needs a lot of work to not be pitifully flawed.

I completely agree. IMO the starts should be removed, and redone correctly according to highest votes/ratings.

That's already the case I believe. Stars merely resemble whether someone liked the review or not..

What was wrong with having all the reviews grouped together, without all of these sub-categories and the star treatment? How is it possible to balance the quality of a review for a rare game against one people would be more likely to search? It's just the percentage of people who are recommending things, out of everyone who reads the reviews, or what?
