Default A suggestion: review conclusion

I don't care if the front page reviews have a star rating or not; it's o.k. when a star rating is there and if not, not.

But what I would really like to see in the front page reviews is a box at the end of the text, containing a conlusion in two or three sentences. A super short review that sums everything up. Something like:

"Angry Doodlebirds of Flappy-ness is, despite it's fault of having a bit blurry graphics and not much content, an excellent game with dynamic controls an a well-told story about a bird on it's search for the meaning of life. A bargain for $0.99."

I like the idea of a final conclusion a lot. I came to it when I checked back three reviews of games that just went on sale. It's a bit tiring to have to go through all three reviews again until you scraped together the piece of information you - or better: I - needed. It could also be a nice feature for the impatient who don't read the review anyway and scroll down quickly.
Last, but not least, it could help the developers to quote the quintessence of your reviews on their Appstore product pages.

I second this; it would be great to even see this sort of summary at the start of reviews for more concise browsing.

But then the surprise is gone?
Do you burp first and then drink?

Now, seriously: yeah, a summary/conclusion at the start or (I like it more) end of a review would be a fantastic feature.
It would be also awesome for the touchArcade app... just scroll through a list of new releases and have all summaries present. Won't take much space but would be a help in general.
That's also nice when people are on the public transport, quickly informing about new stuff when there are just a few minutes to waste.
