Not supposed to be an in-depth review, but I guess you're right.

That's actually pretty nice. One sentence should go along with each section however, other than just saying generic words like "great" or "gem". Something more specific. But then that kinda turns it into a full-ish review....

Yeah I'd agree with at least one sentence to explain each, especially if you give it a low score. Thanks for sharing Sunrise!

That's like iTune's reviews if they weren't so stupid and actually talked about the game. Good idea. Sometimes I'm on the fence and want a quick rundown to convince either way.
