Should there be only one, or are current 2 ok?

I would say the 0-100%, since it's easy to use and very precise.

For overall, I like 0-5 stars (boy are there a few 0 star games.... Laughing )

But for the detailed examinations, 0-10 or percentile ratings are prefered, with appropriate editorial.

I think stars are the best way to rate games, because you don't need to calculate too much, and its mostly an approximation. Although, when you wan't to use normal, symbolic stars for the ratings...

1.0, 1.1...-...9.9, 10.0 is the best, in my opinion.

I'd say the best is 0-100 because it offers a wider range so you don't have to type 8.94174967396 to prove how exact you think it is.
