This actually made me laugh.

Dungeon Keeper a game by EA mobile which scored a 0/10 on the metro newspapers games review section has an average rating of a 4 out of 5 on Google Play. So how does this happen you ask? How can a game that reviewed so badly be received so positively? The answer is surprisingly simple: You can either vote the game 5 out of 5 or you can hit the only other option that simply says 1 to 4 stars. If you click the five-star option you're immediately taken to the game's Google Play Store product page to rate it. But if you click the one to four options all you do is get invited to send EA support an email.

It's worth downloading just so you can send them an e-mail to call them names.

Very sneaky. Good to see EA putting all those skill points into the deception skill tree :p

I'd like to send them an e-mail asking why they ruined such a classic franchise but we all know why they did it, and it makes me a sad panda :(

EDIT: On a positive note: It's good to see that the spiritual successor for Dungeon keeper (War for the Overworld) is getting a fair amount of publicity thanks to the release of the shoddy mobile cash in.

I'm sure it's just so they can receive constructive criticism. No ulterior motives at all.....

Lol. You made me read the 0/10 Metro review - I don't think they liked it!

These kind of games are dreamt up by corporate execs that want to extract in-game purchase money out of kids at whatever cost.

Reminds me of Simpsons Tapped Out - another EA game coincidentally.

Isn't Simpsons Tapped out meant to be good? - I downloaded it, but couldn't see what I was meant to do straight they way and never turned t back on lol

Yep, in fairness, the game is good but the in-app purchases are silly money.

You can easily spend £70 on donuts for some characters and buildings, and the game rarely allows you to earn donuts.

compare that to £65 for a box of in-game treasue for Six-Guns, that only gives you ammunition, in game credits and some other bobletts. absolutely immoral!

i would love for them to remake dungeon keeper properly and perhaps have it as a PSN/XBLA download - or, even better, a vita game. this poor effort is scandalous.

@ Djburty: Check out War for the overworld if you want more classic dungeon keeper.

It's steam early access so it's PC only I'm afraid but it looks really good and will prob be the best and closest thing to dungeon keeper for a while.

It does look good, but my days of pc gaming are behind me so i'll have to see if it makes the jump to the consoles.

Bargain, and the gameplay still holds up today.
