Re: Please rate this review: Call of Duty: Black Ops

Well, doesn't matter who voted since nobody from staff reads and comments anyway...

Re: Please rate this review: Call of Duty: Black Ops

On the other side of the coin, it takes about 20-30 mins to read one of these reviews and formulate a meaningful response, so it's tough to get that time.

However, as reader reviews are one of the main 'hooks' of the site, somebody from staff should definitely read the reviews after they've attracted a certain amount of comments. Not only is it of interest to the reviewer, but it also would show things the peer review missed, so it's of interest to everyone who's commented as well.

Re: Please rate this review: Call of Duty: Black Ops

The last time I attempted a review I got response from two staff members in less than a week. This one is up for more than 1 1/2 months and there are not that many other user submissions right now. So I guess it's just the Call of Duty-brand that's keeping people away... or people remember how terrible my first review was and I got blacklisted

Well, looks like nobody wants to read about Black Ops anymore.

Re: Please rate this review: Call of Duty: Black Ops

Hey Li-ion, the concept of the review while clever, but it isn't original enough of a hook to really suck me into it. I also agree with Pedro that the sentence structure is a tad rough and needs to improve. The text just reads very dense and laborious. I would recommend you work one-on-one with an editor you trust to hone your writing style a bit more and try writing more reviews.
