Ah, I see. Oh well, at least Badlands was able to pull a positive quote from PG for their store description.

Edit: And yeah I know that doesn't really solve the ratings issue, just avoiding scores thing altogether

I completely agree - I've been very tempted over the years to start a site that does reviews like this. When I first thought of it I wanted to call it worthplaying.com but that site already exists.

My life is full of stuff and there are a ton of great games out there. So many, in fact, that the only ones worth playing are the truly great ones. I don't have time for anything less.
