Default So regarding free versions of apps that act as demos...

I have a game out right now called Cook, Serve, Delicious! that is getting really nice reviews via users. There's also a free version that acts as a demo, just like the PC version. It has about 20-30 minutes of gameplay before it halts and asks the user to buy the full app. The free version is getting pretty bad reviews from people, calling it a "scam" in some countries and such.

What I'm wondering is whether the free version was a mistake of sorts. Sales are going well, at about 10-15% of the daily downloads of the free version, which is great. I know not to label it a "demo" as Apple doesn't particularly encourage that. But what exactly should I do about bad reviews? I've changed the iTunes description so that it's more up front about what's in the demo, as well as changing the screenshots. But should I just shake off the bad reviews in the free version?
