It is a remake, not my fault you people think ports are remakes (but only on Nintendo systems)-Demondog666

This poll demonstrates what's wrong with it, or at least how it's interpreted by gamers. A rating scale with three levels of "good" and six levels of "bad" is completely imbalanced and therefore worthless.

I'd say 5 is better in all honesty... Still not great though

Better than just saying the game is good or bad, this way you get a better indication when you're dealing with a reviewer with similar tastes as you.

But isn't reading the actual review. Far more of an indication as to what the game is like?

Or you could, I don't know, READ THE REVIEW ITSELF? Then you know what they liked and didn't like, and by association know whether you'll like what they liked, and if the things they deem bad about it are things you don't mind or will ruin the game for you.
