    A 5 star scale is the same thing as a 10 point scale.

    Yea but stars always feel cheesy to me.

    Super Reviews have to come back, they were great...i wondered about them.

    Super reviews were one of the best things about Gamesradar. Bring them back Mr Steinman.

    I like the new layout as I have always hated how hard it was to find things on the site. So good job there. I don't really see a difference between the 5 star scale and the 10 point scale. If it really helps out the stupid people, then yay.

    I like the new layout, far more than most of the recent changes at least. I'm especially a fan of the 5 star scale, it really is way better than a 10 point one.

    It seems really sterile now. GR lost a lot of it's defining elements in the past 12 months, now the "punk" style is gone. I'm not complaining though, things change. also, halo reach 8 jokes are now irrelevant

    I find it hard to give anything 5 out of 5, on Netflix most movies I rate get a 3, because they aren't mind blowing or bad, and 5 seems like it means perfect to me. 3 stars seems too low, 7 out of 10 seems better in my head. Gamesradar just seems more like a regular game magazine or site now. It's lost most of its humor, and the new review layout reads and looks like a magazine again. I hope we get some of the character back, it all seems to have gone to the podcasts being done by the people who used to do Talkradar.

    I agree with the previous comments of: - bring back super-reviews, please - the crux of the site was lost with the attitude of the main writers (which it hasn't fully recovered from) - a damn 'edit' button - that's laziness on the site's part; I wouldn't mind if it hadn't been requested so much, and even then, fine, but where's our explanation? C'mon, a little decency wouldn't go amiss! - and if you haven't added an 'edit' button there must be no hope in hell for us to have you add a decent video player, too, but yes, that's my request. Other than that, the new lay-out is awesome, it's a lot less convoluted and a lot more ergonomic than it was previously - so that's plus. I appreciate you can't do everything, but what I've mentioned here are mostly just 'improvements' and not a 'redesign'; I wholeheartedly think you should repair broken parts before upgrading i.e. the video player and edit button should have been fixed BEFORE the update/upgrade, in my opinion.

    First, I liked hearing from Gary. I know he is very busy but, as the Editor-n-Chief, he is the rudder steering the ship and it's good to hear his thoughts. Second, I love the rating system change. I have always loved the 5 star rating system, with or without, half stars. Third, the new layout is fantastic. Good work all around.
  • GarySteinman - June 25, 2012 4:42 p.m.

    Well, I like hearing from YOU, LordZarlon. Thanks for the comments!
  • ultimatepunchrod - June 25, 2012 3:26 p.m.

    For a second I got excited and thought there was no more recaptcha. Site looks good though. I like the new review layout.
  • joabbuac - June 25, 2012 3:13 p.m.

    As long as everything is easy to find, im fed up of sites that get rid of tabs (Like previews) and call it an improvement, ive not gone back to ign since they did that.
  • GaryTheGuidoHunter - June 25, 2012 3:02 p.m.

    Awesome layout !
  • ObliqueZombie - June 25, 2012 2:25 p.m.

    Love the new layout, especially the comment setup. Can't wait to delve into it more.
  • J-Fid - June 25, 2012 2:19 p.m.

    So this should stop the "Halo Reach got an 8!?"-type rage, right? These reply and report buttons seem a bit big, but whatever.
  • Lurkero - June 25, 2012 8:26 p.m.

    On a second looks these buttons are pretty large. 2 large buttons and neither one is "edit" I would suggest making the buttons smaller
  • ThatGamerDude - June 25, 2012 2:10 p.m.

    I like it. That's all I can say.
  • shawksta - June 25, 2012 2:09 p.m.

    Awesome layouts, and now a 5 star review rating? Even Better!
  • BottleBank - June 25, 2012 2:06 p.m.

    It's still a 10 point scale if you're handing out half marks. I'm Glad about this because although the 5 star scale works well for Movies & Music etc, i honestly don't think a 5 star system is broad enough to differentiate between games that are very good, and games that are truly excellent (likewise at the other end of the scale). Also i agree with loonyman978. The Super Reviews helped GR stand out amongst the other popular gaming sites. I appreciate that it's evolution not revolution, but it would be great to have them back. Looking forward to enjoying the new layout.
  • lkchevrolet021 - June 25, 2012 6:49 p.m.

    Could not agree more about the scale, there is no difference when you have half marks... Multiply by 2 and you have your 10 point scale equivalent.
