    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    A 5 star scale is the same thing as a 10 point scale.
  • NullG7 - June 26, 2012 8:31 p.m.

    Yea but stars always feel cheesy to me.
  • jenovalife1 - June 26, 2012 1:04 a.m.

    i bet theres no reboot to talk radar in that re-design XD
  • UndeadCorpse - June 26, 2012 3:06 a.m.

    So, like IGN then.
  • CitizenWolfie - June 26, 2012 3:27 a.m.

    That all sounded great until the 5 star rating system. Personally I thought GR was (usually) always fair with their /10 system instead of just the "7 = bad, 8 = OK etc" thing that most sites do. Ah well. Hopefully the cool articles and features will remain funny and/or controversial.

    Better than the current blog style. The year of the blog was 2004.
  • aspiisd - June 26, 2012 8:09 a.m.

    I like the 5 star scale and the more user friendly interface but the SuperRewiews should be back, i really loved those and that's a reason i found GR.
  • aspiisd - June 26, 2012 8:11 a.m.

    Forgot to say, add an EDIT button please!
  • DiJunoMan - June 26, 2012 10:31 a.m.

    It looks beautiful but what was the point of switching to stars?
  • EwoksTasteLikeChicken - June 26, 2012 2:18 p.m.

    Remember back when everyone was raging about how GR gave Halo Reach an 8? This way, no one will complain about Halo 4's rating.
  • Net_Bastard - June 26, 2012 12:47 p.m.

    Fuck you guys for putting the rating on the sidebar again. I want the rating to be shown after reading the review. Everything else is fine though. But seriously, fuck the sidebar score. Please put it back in the bottom again.

    Here here

    Hey, I love that you love reading our stuff. And I wish everyone read every word we published. But the score, up-front, is for the vast majority of users who want info fast. The score isn't meant to be a surprise, or to spoil the text. They exist hand-in-hand, and one enhances (and speaks to) the other. Thanks for reading. Seriously. We love readers like you, who are passionate about enjoying what we produce.
