Review Squad: post badly formatted reviews or reviews to del

My opinions on reviews are that something is better than nothing but there may be some useless ones buried within the site. Over the years the formatting has changed (for the better) but we have also converted to different content management systems and site templates so there are some reviews that are just walls of text. Please let me know what you find here. Thanks!

Hmm...I dunno. It may not be extreme quality, but even base info can be helpful. Deleting a review because it isn't long enough seems uncool to me. But I'm not in charge.

If I have any of the games that feature short reviews, I would happily write a longer one for them. I'll keep an eye on it and pipe up if I do.

Should probably mention the typo in the title of the latest review up.

All of these are ridiculously short or have no formatting. Like, one paragraph and such. I think re-review/deletion is good idea in the case of one short paragraph, unless we can get the reviewers to expand on the content. Which is doubtful considering their age. The wall of text ones could stand to re-reviews as well, but breaking it up and reformatting would be fine too. Anyways, hope that some of you don't mind having toes stepped on. :P

Other problems (like formatting)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/4433-c (Needs to not have everything centered)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/5067-m (Not short...but needs formatting)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/4872-o (Shouldn't be titled MOD. Just KotN)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/4775-t (PICTURE IS WRONG VERSION, that is the original. Review is for remake)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/4893-t (Re-title this and the Oblivion review to sort them with the other Elder Scrolls reviews)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/4568-t (Why is there a GBA picture on a PC review?)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/5162-t (WRONG VERSION IN THE PICTURE AGAIN)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/4673-u (Seriously, the Weapons Section shouldn't be Bolded like that)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/4353-w (This and other LOTR games should include "The Lord of the Rings" in the title to sort better)
http://www.ccgr.org/reviews-mainmenu-31 ... ter/4435-w (This review....is so out of date. mayhaps we should re-review it someday)



Further, I see duplicate reviews in the PC section. Midnight Club 2, Myst IV: Revelation, Star Wars Battlefront all have two reviews. We could potentially merge these, since the separate reviews aren't too great by themselves.


This aside, I could probably review several of these really quickly just to get a better review out there. In this case though, I don't think the review panel is terribly necessary, since these aren't going to get any better.
