Sonic CD on Android getting lots of one star ratings

I wake up this morning from a hazy slumber to go straight to the Android market to see if Sonic CD was uploaded. Expecting near perfect scores for the game, I get shocked to see so many one stars rating from users. It seems that a ton of people are angry due to three factors:

  • Most can’t download the additional 270mb of data required. Some are saying that the server got hit too hard.
  • You can’t install additional data to a SD card. It has to be on the phone memory. This is easily fixable and has been fixed for ChuChuRocket in the last update (another Android SEGA game).
  • Doesn’t seem to work with the Nexus Prime, the new ‘Google’ branded Android phone released today.

Come on SEGA, fix your damn servers. There is a reason why you have 63 one star ratings and 69 five star ratings. I have a feeling if the servers worked and people would be able to download their data, that it wouldn’t have gotten such low scores, even if you couldn’t install to SD or work on Nexus Prime. If it makes you feel better, its getting near perfect scores on Apple’s iTunes stores because people can actually download the game.

    That’s so stupid, when people give 1 star reviews not based on content but based on the download service or tech problems. Initially I didn’t have enough space on my iPod for the game, but I didn’t rate it poorly for that.

    This is another reason why star ratings on most downloadable services are so unreliable. This is one of the few progressive things about Nintendo’s eShop: they require people to have logged an hour of playtime before rating a game.

    I can’t begin to tell you how many shitty “five star” games I’ve downloaded. Why oh why did I touch Cowboys and Aliens on iPad….

    Android users are full of shit. I should know, I used to be one.

    None of those problems are present on iOS, 5star ratings going smooth

    SEGA on Twitter: “We’re aware that people are having trouble downloading Sonic CD for Android, & we’re working to resolve the situation as quickly as we can.”

    you might complain about how the one star ratings are complete bullshit. but they did get attention.

    While most Android reviews, on both the Market and Amazon, are bull, I hate when games can’t be moved to the SD card. There just isn’t enough internal space on these phones.
